Coming of Age


When I first decided I want to blog back in 2009, it was a fun hobby. In the very very very early days, it was similar to a diary. I just popped on to write about my day or how I was feeling about life.
I later tried to curate my blog a bit more. DIYs were big for a bit and posts were touch and go for a few years.
In 2014, I did not post once.
By 2015, I picked it up again. I was living in NYC and feeling very inspired, but I was a little lost in the blogosphere. I did not have a solid identity and found myself mimicking other bloggers.
For the past two years, I have been the most active. While I still have not mastered a consistent schedule, when I do post I love the content I am putting up. Not to sound like a Lifetime movie, but my experience with blogging has been a growing experience as well. As I grow and change, the blog grows and changes with me. I often think about what it will be like to look back on this blog 20 to 30 years down the road. It will be a trip down memory lane that's for sure, but I also want it to be me. There are so many blogs out there and I don't want to conform. I like fashion and beauty and reading and venting and learning and growing and sharing. One day I may post about quitting my job and the next I might post a haul. It's all over the place, kinda like me at the moment, but I don't mind. Ultimately, it's an outlet. A creative outlet for whatever I am into at the moment. So, while my posts may be all over the map, I hope there's something you find that you can relate to.
