Bloggers think differently. We see the world in photographs, social media and enjoy standing out from the crowd. How else are you expected to be noticed? Blending in is for the mundane. All this is why some people just don’t get bloggers. Yes, we fuss over what shoes to wear. Yes, our social networks are filled with images of our favorite looks. Yes, we have friends we have never actually met in person. No, we don’t expect everyone to understand. No, we won’t be swayed by the occasional judgmental look or whisper. No, we don’t mind working hours and hours outside of our normal jobs or lives to express our creativity.
Many people ask, “Why do you put so much time into something that’s a hobby?” They don’t understand why we consistently subject ourselves to nights of minimal sleep, endless networking and never “turning off”. The truth is that many of our efforts aren't logical. We do it for the thrill of the ride; for the journey, not the end destination. Our efforts are a result of real love. And that type of love, my friends, is above reason. So bring out the coffee and keep blogging your well-dressed heart out, because it’s those who work the hardest that will see the biggest rewards.
And speaking or rewards, I am so delighted to say that I have went and got myself on the long list of blog for this years Irish Beauty Blog Awards. I wish I could say that I knew these were happening this early and that I nominated myself but I guess thats what made it so much better to come across. To be honest, I let out a little whelp the minute I came across my blog name. I have been nominated for "Best Fashion Blog" and "Best Content". Crazy, right? All I can ask now is for you all to send good vibes my way so I can hopefully make the reduced shortlist so I can actually attend the awards.
