What I would like to achieve from/with my blog...
So far, it feels as though I've not entirely been expressing myself properly in my blog, which I guess is why I'm not writing very much or with an awful lot of regularity. I mean, my life isn't very interesting anyway, and we all have days where we don't do much or feel as though we have much to say, so how does one overcome this?
Currently, my posts focus mostly on outfits from the day and then the odd little thing about my life and fashion inspiration. Now, I don't know much about runway fashion, I like reading about the odd bit of high fashion here or there, but I don't really like blogs that are purely editorials or about runway fashion, they just don't suit my personal interests.
So, having written this post, I've decided that I would like to live up to the name of my blog a bit more and include more about lifestyle, my fashion inspirations, things that I've learnt etc. not just in fashion, but in music and life in general.
I don't know if any of you would find this interesting, but I initially started this blog after being inspired by Belle de Jour. I read a few of her books and looked her blog up and over the course of a few weeks read the ENTIRE thing, all the way through the archives. I adore the way she writes and wanted to emanate her style: mysterious woman, enigmatic, intelligent. However, if you look back to my first couple of posts, it reads more like a teenager's angst-ridden diary!! Totally not where I wanted it to go. So I stopped for a while, but continued reading blogs that I admired and slowly began to understand what I liked to read, and tried to create something individual of my own. But perhaps I haven't really done that until I really thought about it now...so, hopefully now the content of my blog will become more interesting for you all, and myself. I guess having a few weeks to think about things will be beneficial!
I'll try and get together some ideas and some regular post ideas together while I can't walk, in order to come back with outfit posts as an addition to my blog, not just the substance, cause I don't really think it's that interesting!!
I suppose I haven't really said what I'd like to achieve, but I know more where I'm going now, which is definitely a start. Really, I'd like to be an inspiration to my readers the way so many are to me.
If any of my readers have any advice or ideas, then I'd love to hear from you all, with any of your own experiences, etc. I don't know why I'm finding it hard, but perhaps among such a sea of bloggers it can be hard to find your own identity?
Currently: Watching Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of The Ring (Extended DVD Edition...geek!) It's a good way to pass the time when you can't walk :)
