Just as the title of this post , I would like to reintroduce myself. It is June month and it has been 5 years I have started blogging. I must say , this is the one of the best decisions I took. But due course there are lots of things and perspectives that have changed. I have changed , habits have changed , endurance has changed and energy has changed. Everything has changed in the right direction striking the balance in my life. Below few points will tell you why I have started blogging and what has changed?....
1. Why I have started blogging?
I have started blogging to pen down my ideas and opinions about fashion , travel and lifestyle. I wanted to create a journal of experimental and accessible fashion . Add my own perspective to fashion and personal style. And a track of lifestyle traits and a travel diary.
2. What Has Changed?
My perspective about fashion and lifestyle has changed. My sole purpose of blogging has changed. I wanted to create a space that could address the day -to -day concerns and lifestyle management. I have started to become a conscious consumer of fashion and other goods. And I have practiced time management only to put my best into this blog and provide quality content to my readers talking about more real world problems than fashion and lifestyle perks.
3. Minimalism and Aesthetics.
Whenever I post a picture , I make sure it tells a story. I believe when you watch a picture it works like a therapy. I made sure pictures are totally not just about my face or a perfect outfit or accessories , but about the essence of the surroundings , the weather and the mood of the picture. I try to create mood grams on my Instagram to create a personal aesthetic. This has given me an art perspective.
Minimalism has become an essential part of me now. I have started to curate my life with what adds value to my life and discard what is causing the exertion or parts of my life and things that do not serve a purpose or add a value. I started to simplify my house , my blog , my closet and my life.
4. Personal Style.
My personal style has evolved a lot , ever since I started to feel comfortable in my own skin , I have started to listen to my own body. I completely shut down other's perspectives or opinions on how I look or what i should do to look more beautiful , how to look tall and how to make my eyes look big. These are the opinions of people , not mine. I have embraced myself with all the power , confidence and love. I do not have to wear anything uncomfortable to look tall. I do not have to hoard a lot of eye make up to make my eyes look big. Instead I want to look like myself , hence I have embraced a natural and less chemical makeup routine and natural eye make up ( sometimes I skip eye makeup all together). This me is the real me and I feel rewarded to have found the right balance in the world of superficiality and not get carried away.
5. I am not here to influence ( I am not an influencer).
Somewhere in between the journey of calling myself fashion influencer , I felt this word is so intimidating. I would not want to influence anybody. I want to create a stream that can help people learn , adapt and take advantage of. Above all , not just get influenced by what I write but to have their own voice and word for everything. Things do not work the same for everybody , we all pick up bits and pieces from everywhere and build our life. I only wanted to be that small bits and pieces.
Thanks a lot dear all those who are a part of my 5 years of blogging Journey. I grew a lot and I have learnt a lot and got more wiser and balanced in life. I am grateful for all the response I got. I hope you guys enjoyed today's blogpost.
