It’s Fashion Runs the Word three year blogiversary. Whew…I can’t believe its been three years since I decided to start this blog. I remember sitting in a cafe with a few friends discussing the idea about starting a blog and over the next few months, I would go back and forth with the idea because I wasn’t ready.
I didn’t have the budget, I didn’t have the photographer, I didn’t have the graphic designer…I was just listing reasons why I shouldn’t start until I finally was like “F@#k it!” and did it. That was in 2013…..
Fast forward to 2016 and there have been a few changes to the site and I couldn’t be more happier with the direction the blog is headed. It’s kind of crazy to think that I was not going to restart my blog again and quit. I’m happy I didn’t. Although I’ve been in the blogging game for three years, there are still many things I don’t know. Blogging and social media are constantly changing with new platforms, new ways to engage with your audience in real time, etc. and it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes; however what I’ve learned is that you just have to try. One of my resolutions for myself and is to not put too much energy into my job. Of course I still have to do my job (I have bills to pay and clothes and makeup to buy), but I shouldn’t forget about what I’m passionate about and that’s FRTW. I started this blog so that I can share my love for clothes, makeup and writing with you guys, as well as give outfit inspo and beauty tips. Those are things that I love to talk about. It’s what feeds my soul (along with books, movies and music) and I am glad that I get to share that with you guys. Even though I am happy with the changes that have happened with the site, there is still lots of work to be done to get FRTW where I would like it to be; which means there will be some more changes. Don’t worry because I think you might like it 🙂
I’m writing all of this to say that if you are reading this and want to start a blog or a YouTube channel, don’t wait for the “right” time; just do it. Believe me you will be surprised at how much you will accomplish by taking that first step.
Thank you for taking this journey with me and I hope you will continue for many years to come <3!
