To write a good blog, you have to pull from inside. You can't just pull fashion pictures off of the web and post them up, or post up "selfies" everyday. Fashion bloggers carry a lot of weight in the industry right now, but it's changing. You have to be inspired, knowledgeable, savvy, flexible, honest, and psychic. That is why so many blogs are sinking, and why so many bloggers are walking away from their blogs.
If you have a lot of other stuff going on in your life, it is often hard to make time for your blog, and your blog suffers. I fall into the second category. So, what to do, what to do. ..................
1. Wait for the right inspiration?
2. Wait a really long time?
3. Consider turning the long wait into never coming back?
4. No! Use the lack of time and inspiration to write an article on lack of time and inspiration. Genius. I tell you, it's really good to be me right now.
There has been a lot going on this summer, and life has been full. There have been hair changes, weight changes, plans for the future changes, work related changes, and it's all been exhausting. I'm so wiped out I can barely eat my cheesy baked bread. (It's delicious btw).
The most important thing is to not let the pressure get to you. Pressure from work to be less spaced out, pressure from my grand daughter to put my ideas into a children's book that she can actually read, pressure from my hair dresser to reveal the hair color I'm using, pressure from the bill collectors to pay bills on time, arrrggggg! The pressure!!!! Not only am I supposed to get my book into print, I'm expected to get a video deal to turn the characters into a game that she can play. Really? (chewing on cheesy bread #2, mmmm)
So, where was I? Oh yeah, don't let the pressure get to you. (what is that on the floor over there, and how did I miss that with the vacuum?)
In closing, be sincere, be calm, and the inspiration will come to you. You'll see. (Is that tomato sauce on my new jeans?)
