I have a confession to make, dear readers. After four and a half years in this game, I truly expected to be a little further along in my blogging career than I am. There’s been no (legitimate!) offers of brand collaborations, no all-expenses-paid invitations to Fashion Week (wouldn’t that be amazing?)…and certainly no extra income to offset my serious shopping habit!! 😨
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t just the tiniest bit disappointed. Let’s face it, it can be deflating when a dream of yours – no matter how naively it started! – doesn’t work out the way you expected. I’ve followed all the rules and posted like clockwork since Day One (even when I broke my foot and later developed a DVT)…so where the heck is my “buzz”??
But here’s the thing. I absolutely adore my itty bitty corner of the blogosphere…. unassuming as it is. I love sharing my outfit ideas with my visitors and the connections I’ve made within my community of fellow fashionistas. I’m proud of the way I can (sort of) find my way around a computer now…and even more proud of my hubby’s ever-growing photography skills.
So basically I’m gonna keep doing what I’m doing…after all, sometimes it’s more about the journey than the destination!! Where I think I am going to ease up a little is with my very rigid blog schedule; until now, I’ve never missed a single posting day – not for any reason. But I’ve decided to take some time away from the blog when I’m in Toronto visiting my parents next month, for example. And when the weather is truly crappy, or when Robin is sick – recent health scare aside, I almost never am! – well, there probably won’t be a new outfit idea to oogle that week.
Are you worried now that you might miss one of my looks because I won’t be on a fixed schedule anymore?? Don’t be!!
