I guess it’s normal, these things happen. You work your ass off on a project, and even if you love it, sometimes you get a little tired of it.
I wanted a picture that represented my mood. This one will do
Let me tell you, it’s a piece of work to come up, 5 days a week, with ideas for new articles. And when I write, I don’t want to talk about what the other people are talking about. I don’t want to write something that my readers can find in the magazine or in 10 other websites. I don’t want to write something stupid just to “post” something. I don’t want to write about an event or a product if I wasn’t seduced by it.
I want to write something actually interesting. Or at least I’m trying. I also try to be funny and not too serious about it, we’re just talking clothes here. We’re talking express yourself and having fun with it. I’m trying to put myself out there, whatever it is that I’m writing about, I want to have my own point of view and my way of seeing things. That’s what makes the difference. For me.
Sadly, I don’t feel like it’s a common way of thinking around here. Bloggers are writing stuff that know will please the PR Agencies, and like that, make sure to be invited to the following events. Bloggers are kissing asses to make sure they will get that so wanted collaboration.
Is anyone trying to be themselves anymore? Is it a bad thing to actually say what you really think? Is it bad to have a point of view? It clearly makes you different, I’ve realize that for a while now (all my life for that matter). But isn’t that what having fun with your clothes is? Be different?
Or maybe for some of the bloggers, it is to be like everyone else. Follow the rules dictated by fashion. I’ve actually never thought about it, but it just crossed my mind while writing this article. And honestly it freaks the hell out of me.
My passion for fashion, but mostly for clothing as always been to have fun with my outfits, and express myself. Represent myself, and showing a part of my personality. And that’s also the way I see, and act for the rest of my blog. I may sometimes have less collaborations, less invitations, less presents than others, and let’s be honest, for the amount of work I put into this, it feels very frustrating at times (just before anyone misunderstand what I’m saying – it happened in the past – it’s definitly not the reason why I have this blog. Though, I believe frustartion can be normal because as I said, LOTS of work is being put into this). But I know I stay true to myself.
I know I’m being very negative right now, I’m sorry, I hate it. I just can’t help the way I feel. And I find it so hard to post lately (especially outfit post – they’re not interesting because hidden under tons of layers).
Maybe I’m just depressed by the end of winter… Spring, hurry up!
