Blogging is a lot of work.
You have to come up with what to write, photos that capture your audience’s attention, and there is no guarantee of success.
While I am still fairly new to blogging and learning the ropes, I love it.
I remember the first night I stayed up searching through pages and pages of blogs.
Start of blog numero uno
I ended up looking at a bunch of beauty product reviews along with OOTDs and makeup. To me, it seemed like so much fun! After a few days of surfing the web, I began to think, “Hey, maybe I can do this!”
I mean, I am a communications major. I like to write. I can learn to take pictures. I love makeup. I want to be rich and famous. What do I have to lose?
So I put up my blog… And oddly, I didn’t have much success.
I got preoccupied with life and lazy on posting my content. I felt that I could not succeed because I couldn’t afford the proper equipment due to the fact that I am a broke college student.
Due to the lack of recognition I was getting and the hard work I had to put into my blog, I got bored and eventually just gave up.
I let my domain expire and I gave up on trying to write. Until now.
I took a step back, refocused, and realized that I have a lot bigger motivations for my blog than before.
I don’t want discount codes and sponsorships. I don’t want Tarte to fly me to New York for events (although I wouldn’t be opposed). Instead, I want to make a difference in people’s lives.
I want to empower young women to do what they want to do and find confidence in who they are. I have grown so much in the past year, and I want to build a community to grow along with me.
While I simply enjoy blogging and creating content, I hope that people of all ages can come to my site and feel comfortable and like themselves. Even if they hate makeup and cheesy pop songs.
I truly hope to reach out to an audience and make an impact.
So. Thank you for joining me on my journey and I hope to see you again.
