When I started blogging, back in 2016, I was focusing on beauty. While I almost never wear makeup. Ironic, isn’t it? And not so legit. I still don’t know much about beauty. Not a niche for me then. Good thing the blog took a shift towards some more lifestyle content back then. Food, travel, blogging tips. It felt much better.
Yet, it still was not what I wanted.
After some months, the blog started to have more fashion content but still, it was not enough. I made the big jump when I went solo in February. Full on fashion blogger. I have to be honest though. For a very long time, I was kinda making fun of fashion bloggers. Not clever and quite ignorant of me. Like, you know, being dismissive of what you don’t know or don’t understand. I had the same attitude towards Instagram. Who could have guessed I’d be where I am now, right?!
Conclusion? Never dismiss or make fun of. Because you never know.
I was not sure my fashion style – or lack thereof – was worth an entire blog. Like, would I make a good fashion blogger? Also, I always feel a bit awkward when I pose for photos. Posing is not the issue actually. It’s having people watching that makes me uncomfortable. I am still not passed that but I don’t pay attention as much as I used to. Aren’t people used to seeing bloggers taking photos in the street anyway?
But I think focusing on fashion did great for me. It made me create content that is much more personal to me and create a blog that looks much more like me. Focusing on something that I genuinely love allowed me to express myself better, create a space where I can inject my personality. And it is an important aspect of blogging. At least I think.
There is still so much to be done, such a long way to go but I am getting there. I am loving my blog at the moment. Not to brag, but I am quite proud of what I have done since I started blogging on my own. I am embracing being a fashion blogger and expressing the fashion I like and feel good in. Even though I know I could be bolder and sassier, but one step at a time!
I still need to learn how to ace the posing though! And I have got quite few outfits in store for you! Fashion blogging has been fun and I am glad I went into it! Also, I am much happier with the look of my Instagram!
Don’t get too excited though. I am also getting back into baking so you’ll get quite few recipes landing on the blog too!
What about you? How did you choose to focus on something specific? Have you ever felt like you were not good enough for something? Or would not be? That you’d just feel ridiculous? Or make a fool of yourself? How are you embracing your blogging?
Thanks a lot for stopping by. Hope you loved this post!
See you soon,
