I have some exciting news for you guys, I’ve decided to take a different approach with my blog! What is different about a blog altogether, is that yes, it is professional, and it’s often viewed as a brand and a business, but I believe it should also be very personal. I want to produce strong content and put my heart and soul into the work, but I want it to be genuine and true to who I am. I want to not only be honest with myself but everyone who follows me as well. I don’t want to have to censor my thoughts in order to get people’s approval.
I’ve decided that the more vulnerable and honest I am with my blog, the more opportunity there will be for personal and spiritual growth. I don’t want my thoughts to be focused on how many followers I have or how high my engagement rate is anymore. I want to produce content because that’s what I love to do. I want to produce content even if I am only influencing one person. Here is where it all began:
Quoted from my recent Instagram post, “Ever since I started my blog, I asked myself if it should simply be a fashion blog or more of a lifestyle and faith blog. I decided I would start out with fashion and see where it takes me. Since then I have just always felt like there was a part of me missing from this blog like I wasn’t being true to myself in a way. As my faith continues to grow and my relationship with Jesus continues to strengthen I feel the pressure of that gap more and more. Earlier this year I decided to add a “faith” tab on my blog. However, I’ve still been hesitant to share all of my thoughts due to possible backlash. Today I decided I don’t want to keep my faith separate anymore. I want God’s hand on every part of my life, including my blog. With that being said, I am super excited to start this new journey with you guys – cheers to honesty, new beginnings, and doing life together ✌?”
I have realized that sometimes you need to take a step away and a step back in order to move forward and grow. So maybe that means that I lose some followers. I am okay with that and that is very likely to happen as I take this new approach. I am just happy that I will be moving forward being 100% honest with myself and anyone who stumbles upon my blog.
I’ve recently realized how extremely important it is to give God every area of your life. I’ve given him my love life, my school work, my career, my family, my friends, and part of my blog. Today I feel like I can say that I have officially given him 100% of my blog. I pray for success and favor in all that I do, but most importantly that he uses this blog how he wishes.
