It’s been a year since I’ve purchased my blog domain and everything else that comes with it. I honestly never did think I would become a blogger. During the Spring of 2018, I became inspired or gifted to start my own blog. I begin reaching out to those around me who knew any and everything about websites and everything else because I was clueless. In school, I always loved writing and doing paper assignments. I was the student who never complained or had a problem with doing research. At the same time, I’ve always had a love for fashion and styling clothes.
At the time I decided to become a blogger, I was going through a breakup. At that moment, I learned so much about myself and begin loving myself for who I was regardless of how I looked or even felt. That feeling felt good and I wanted to share that with other women so they can feel that way as well. Also at the time, I had recently lost my grandmother. When I purchased my blog, it was exactly a month after her death and I decided to do something in memory of her. I actually have a part of my blog dedicated to my late grandmother. You can check it out here.
I become a blogger to influence, inspire, motivate and share my spirit and personaility with other women. I believe women have the ability to be themselves no matter what size, color or personaility they have. Bloggers are influencers that influence the good and postiive in people. Influences inspire and guide people in a different and positive direction. Bloggers speak on various topics and platforms that range from travel, motherhood, fashion, lifestyle, beauty and many more topics.
After I became a blogger, I dealt with the obstacle of comparing myself to others and wanted to be where they were so bad, but I learned that eveything is a process. Blogging has a lot of responsiblity with planning and creating and keeping up with the latest trends. If you ever decide to begin blogging, do the research and have tons of patience!
I hope since I’ve shared with you why I decided to become a blogger that you look at bloggers and blogging differently than you did before. There are different blogging platforms that cater to different topics. Bloggers do not only chase after celebs, but many choose a different platform to create creative content for their readers and followers.
I encourage you to look at your local bloggers and see what they plan and create for fashion, lifestyle, beauty and even your city! Enocurage them and support them!
Happy Blogging and Happy creating loves!
Love, Gayla 💕
