Fashion Blogger Or Not? // LAID BACK ENDORSEMENT

5:00 PM

Hello fashion people!
Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been thinking lately about my status as a blogger. We all know I'm a bad fashion blogger because I only post about my personal style instead of branded things. I've met some fellow fashion bloggers. They're more popular and cooler than me, of course. When I see their feeds on Instagram and blogposts, I know they're all good fashion bloggers. Cool outfits from the coolest brands and retails, cool places, cool events. But that's too much for me. I'm not a girl with a bunch of dollars in my pocket. So it's been a struggle for me from the first time I wrote a blogpost. Whether I want this blog to be a fashion blog... or just a blog.

What's in your mind when you hear the word "fashion blogger"? Yes. Fancy. They live a fancy life. If fashion blogger means fancy then I'm not one. Believe me, I'm so far from fancy. Fancy is when I walk out of my house. But at home, I'm just a regular young adult who cleans their house by themselfs, wash their dishes, sweep the floors and so on. My life looks like a Cinderella story. A maid at home, but a princess outside the house. I even share a room with my other two sisters. You can imagine how messy our room is.

Most fashion bloggers wear different outfits in every single post they share. Always something new. Since I can't afford new clothes everyday, I choose to mix and match my old clothes. You don't need to buy new clothes everyday if you're smart in mix and match ;)

I sometimes feel down when fellow bloggers ask me to meet up. With their expensive clothes, shoes, bags, even cameras or phones. I ask to myself, am I worthy to be their friend? Am I going to fit in? Me, a simple kid with my cheap clothes? I'm a socially awkward person as you know. But I love making new friends. New friends means new life. I wish some of them want to be friends with me without my economics status. I just want to be friends with everyone but I'm just ashame if I don't look like them.

Fashion blog or not, I will keep posting my personal style just because I love it. Well, with a spice of life shits, of course. I will keep writing even if only one person who reads my blog. I will not stop just because I'm not a proper fashion blogger. Maybe I will inspire people, maybe not. But who knows if you stop trying and consider quitting, right? So, I'm telling this to all of you who wants to start a fashion blog. Fashion is all about brands. But style is about who we are. Blog about yourself and don't follow trends. Don't blog just because you want to be famous. Do not want anything so hard otherwise you won't get it. Make a blog, post your personal style, and wait. Good things come for those who waits. Oh, and don't forget to make friends. I can be your friend if you want :)

I'm sorry for the long post. Enjoy!

  7. I love your Laid Back top..your look is very retro and I love it!! I love how you so wrote an honest and "authentically you" post about not fitting in with other blogger friends. It sounds to me that you realize that being who you are is more important than any gifted purse, shoe, or clothing item! I totally agree with Lyosha its about the ideas and personality of the blogger writer that your readers care about. Your thoughts, your endeavors, your life, your story, is why your readers will be coming back for more!! xo
