You guys, I need to be real with you for a second. Up until the last month or so, I have felt like I was just going through the motions with this whole blogger things. I had been really struggling to find my purpose on this platform and Instagram. I got lazy and I got complacent. Worst of all, I was falling into the trend trap.
What I mean by this is I have always loved occasional Amazon finds, but when everyone started sharing 20 Amazon pieces a week – I was trying to ‘Keep up with the Jones’. When everyone moved away from telling stories on their platform to pushing sales and clothes to buy rather than helping you mix up what you already have, I fell into it. It is easy to do and I am not trying to bash anyone who does this because I love seeing your finds and am way guilty of buying to much, I just realized it wasn’t me or the brand I had built.
I realized my content stopped being about my style, helpful tips, and real talk and more about what I felt was trending in the Instagram world. There for a while, I lost sight of me, my brand, my style, and what I wanted this platform to really be about beneath the surface.
After tons of talks with my mom, Russell, and friends and really getting hit with some truth bombs, I realized something. I have been going through the motions, bored and disliking my own content. If that is the case, how can I expect you all to love it?
Going forward, I am going to make a continuous effort to dive back into the brands, the styles, and the writing I care so deeply about. I have a TON of new and useful content ideas that span outside just telling you ‘you need this it’s so cute and on sale’. Stay tuned and be sure to subscribe so you are the first to see it!
Thank you all for bearing with me and for sticking by my side. You are the reason I wake up and do this and I promise I am going to be better for YOU! With that being said please let me know how I can be the best resource for you I can be.
