To be honest..
There’s a lot of stupid reasons why I haven’t been writing.
#1 Reason being I’m a so called “influencer” and people always tell you, you should only be writing or doing something that holds value or no one will pay attention to it. – this is extremely sad but also partly true. These days if you aren’t talking about something beneficial to the person they most likely won’t care about it.
This honestly sucks for people like me. Creators like me.. artists.. writers.. story tellers. Everything is becoming so saturated that you have to be extremely unique or at least know the right people in order to even get noticed long enough. When people heard that you could start making money on Instagram everyone gravitated towards it. Who doesn’t want to work from home and get free things right? It’s that kind of mindset that ruined our reputation.
Now it doesn’t matter if you’re creative or not. Now it doesn’t matter if you spend hours putting together a photo shoot. I see tons of people that literally just take a selfie with a product now. What creative thought process went behind that?? You did it just so you can get something for free?? Because that’s not what the rest of us are out here doing. We stand for something. For an artistic outlet, cruelty free products, sustainable fashion instead of fast fashion.
There’s a reason for what we do and I feel like a lot of people don’t understand that. Now it’s hard to see the difference between someone who truly stands for something or who stands for nothing (thank you algorithm). So I’ve been frustrated about this in case you can’t tell and I know I’m not the only one.
After writing that I realized something..
the only way to try and make a difference is if I don’t stop. Sooner or later people will see the difference between the two… right?
#2 writing has always been a passion of mine. Writing.. drawing.. painting..photography.. editing.. all things that make me, me. I don’t have “hot new tips to get insta famous” or “hottest celebrity style you need to copy right now”
I’m not the “it” girl.. the “how to girl”.. unless if it’s how to style your new Fall boots then I got you girl!
I used to consider my blog my own diary of things that I love, thoughts I had.. places I’ve been.. and if people wanted to know more about what I was liking or writing about then great! If not then who cares? Like I said before.. writing is a part of who I am.
I got into this.. what’s the point attitude. Then I thought that was stupid. If it’s something I love then why not do it anyways? Maybe only one person will read this blog post but that’s fine.. (hi mom!) at least I can say I’m doing what I love and love what I do and that’s something not a lot of people can say.
So I’m back. writing about life and stuff.
