I will be starting a new blog post series on Mondays. Basically whatever has been on my mind each Monday and post it. Even though I had in mind what my next post was going to be, I was going to write about my trip to the south and compare my southern small town to my now Oregon lifestyle. Point out all the differences and what has changed. It has been long overdue. But hey what else is new? ..ha. But something crashed my plans, so now that will be my post…
And Instagram is to blame. Well, Kind of.
So I follow a lot of bloggers, it’s a daily thing. I’m trying to grow my following and I love connecting and seeing what others are doing. Actually, I’ve been more distracted by Instagram blogging than actually writing.
The reason I started blogging is to write and have a creative outlet. Because I’ve always had one. Baking, taking pictures, theater arts when I was in high school and makeup. (That one still hasn’t left me ha) I was never happy just behind a desk. I only liked English and art in School. Which is funny because I can’t even draw or paint. And I rely on my grammar software too much. Sooo ? Can’t explain that one. haha.
But Instagram for my blog page is fun, I like seeing what others are doing, getting ideas, and supporting others who have the same hobbies and interests.
I never compare myself to the ones who travel the world on a daily basis and have a professional photographer follow them at all times. (More like I admire from a distance) lol.
Because we live in a filtered world. But We never know who is filtering the hurt, the pain the low self-esteem. It’s important to make sure the inside is ok before posting the outside image.
That is where my blog name comes from. Even though I’ve wanted to change it. Ha. But the reason for this blog was about to talk about what is going on inside. Helping others and posting what is inside my mind at the time.
There are people who make their oatmeal look like a Van Gogh art piece and post it. And I just made the instant packet kind this morning. That was it. lol
I love taking pictures I love posting to insta, But at the end of the day, I’m not here to show how pretty my oatmeal is. (Because I would fail) haha. And I will leave that to those who are good at that.
I started blogging to talk about my faith, self-confidence and many other things I still have written down in my notebook.
I like to share my thoughts and views with others and see what their perspective is too. And I’m starting to think maybe that is something I can do.
That and maybe winged eyeliner? Or drinking a lot of coffee…. Also being lazy. Ok, I’m done. aha
And whatever your nitch is you need to go with it! Of course, I love being inspired by others when it comes to style and makeup etc. But there is a difference between inspire and desire. You can be inspired by someone without having a desire to be just like them or have their life. I use to try so hard to be like certain people, Now I take more pride in starting my own trends and forming my own style and taste.
But now I can move on other posts! Because this hasn’t left my mind. Don’t be afraid to speak out and be you. Because that my friends is more attractive than any picture you could post.
