What a couple of months it has been! 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.
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.
The blog awards have come and gone and despite not winning, I could not be happier with what I have achieved so far with this blog. I have laughed, cried and blushed along the way and it has all been completely worth it. From general life musings to style snaps, you just never know what the next day will bring. They say when one adventure ends, another one begins, right? This blog is slowly becoming my greatest achievement and I actually could not be prouder.
