I realize I haven’t been the best about updating you on life happenings. Like everyone, I’ve been busy keeping up with life and I haven’t taken the time to document much. Truthfully, I am trying to figure out which direction I want to take with this blog. To be a successful blogger, is a full time job. It’s having your camera ready to document every single event of your day. It’s taking time away from your family or pausing a moment so you can share it with the world. You made a killer egg salad sandwich? Let’s blog it.
I am struggling in this area. The blog world has become completely oversaturated. When I started this journey over 4 years ago, I was a big fish in a small pond. Now it’s quite the opposite. I don’t feel the authenticity anymore. Just like in real life, blogging has cliques. And cliques are something I shy away from. In fact, they make me very unmotivated to share my story. When I first started this journey I had my hands in everything. Maybe it’s the single mom in me and the pressure I put on myself. My theme now, is very different then most girls blogging out there. I find it hard to relate. I am not growing my family, writing on my faith, coordinating blog conferences, or homeschooling my children. Yet on the other side of the spectrum I am not traveling the world, buying designer brands and attending fashion week…one day.
My theme is unique to me and sometimes I feel like it’s a narrow one. And because of this, I have shyed away from a lot because of the vulnerability. My heart wants to have a fashion only blog. I am debating if I want to start something from scratch or rebrand this place to fashion with sprinkles of my personal life.
I’ve started to make this space more about me and less about Landyn. She’s entering her school years and I’m not sure I want to publicize her life to thousands of people every day anymore. I’m not sure I want everyone at Landyn’s school to know about my struggle with anxiety and my insecurities as a parent. These are all very valid feelings that have been swirling around in my head…
I’ll get off my soap box for today. LOVE you all. Thank you for always supporting me no matter what direction I take.
