Instead of reviewing my favourite brands, talking about style icons, or breaking down outfit details…I am going to get more personal on “Pearls and Polkadots” today. Saturday marks four months since I launched this blog. It feels like yesterday that I was setting up providers, getting my theme set up and beginning to get into my ‘posting groove’ as I call it. It is sometimes hard to make time, multiple times a week to get a post up, especially when you have no idea what to post next! As the months have gone by, it has gotten a little easier, but I have to say, writer’s block is always a problem.
Going forward, I have set a goal for myself. Now that school has let out for the summer, I will have my evenings free to prepare posts and get them up the next morning. I am aiming to post roughly three times a week! Five days is a little hectic, and once is not enough to keep momentum. Through blogging communities and my blogger friends, I have gathered a lot of tips to promote “Pearls and Polkadots”, and have got some great plans for the future! If you have joined me for this journey I am on (by subscribing to the right), than you will be experiencing everything as I experience it as well!
If you don’t know my story, then here it is: I opened an Instagram account apart from my personal account about eight months ago called “@mystyyle” (follow me!). I would post my outfits of the day and mainly use the platform to get inspiration from other style bloggers. I didn’t think of starting a blog until a blogger suggested I do so on one of my photos. At first, I thought it was a crazy idea…what do I have to say to the world? Who would read my posts? I would have written the idea off completely, except I started gathering more followers, likes and an overall following. I didn’t blow up over night, but I did have a steady increase of people joining my network. It started to become more and more logical…why wouldn’t I start a blog? It would be an outlet, somewhere to focus my interest and really express myself.
So I did.
It has been four months of heaven and I have to say, it never gets old. The blogging community is always full of new people, fresh ideas and support that you wouldn’t believe. Everyone believes in everyone, which is so refreshing! It has been an interesting and positive road so far and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
