I cannot believe that it has been a year of blogging and building a brand. Consistency, that is the word that has held me accountable over the last 365 days! I remember scratching my head attempting to figure out how I could balance going to school full-time, work full-time, and become a blogger. . .but God remained faithful & relevant! I cannot imagine balancing those things along with balancing the other parts of my life that needed me.
I have had the support of my family, friends, an awesome boyfriend and a community of fashion lovers from all over. I hope to not only inspire with fashion, hair styles, and trends. I hope that someone is inspired to never give up on a dream and to pursue the things that make their heart flutter. Many think that blogging is just photos, but I assure you that it is so much more. I have planned, invested in camera equipment and my page. I have also, lost sleep to edit photos, written my blogs on my lunch breaks & spent hours of teaching myself new techniques and softwares. BUT . . . I have pushed myself, accepted my uniqueness, inspired others and made my support system so proud.
I am appreciative of the shares, likes, posts and opportunities that I have experienced over the course of this year. I assure you, I am already working on the next big things.
In the meantime, check out the 5 lessons I have learned as a blogger:
1.) Become your biggest fan (trust your inner magic)
2.) Pray that every connection & network be God-approved
3.) Your brand is worth the investment (money,time,energy)
4.) Even when there seems to be no way; Pray & Pursue
5.) Take Time To Rest
Again, I appreciate the love and pray that we rock out for years to come !
