This was going to be another style post. And I guess it still is, sort of.
That’s mostly because…well, it’s “easy” content. Shoot some photos, say what I’m wearing, and boom there’s a blog post.
But let’s be real – GML was never and will never be a fashion blog. I’m too dramatic/too much of a rambler to keep things that focused (ha). Not to mention I just don’t have that fashion-passion that so many (amazing) bloggers have.
So here’s that honesty part. Sometimes – a lot of times, lately – I struggle with GML. I don’t do it for the income (anymore), and I don’t fit perfectly into a niche. I love blogging about food and fitness and being silly and being serious and makeup and *takes breath* – that can get a little confusing, no?
I also have this problem where sometimes I like to be open and transparent, and other times I desperately crave as much privacy as possible (which makes blogging + working in social media an interesting gig, to say the least).
I’ve gone through phases like this in the past, and I always get over them…so apologies if this isn’t the first tantrum you’ve seen me, have, ha!.
I’m not quite sure where I’m going with this, other than to lean on that open/transparent side with you all. I never want to forget that my readers (you!) are actual people who have followed my journey for a while – some of you since way back in 2010 – and I never want to take that for granted. You’re truly like friends to me!
I can tell you that I’m not going anywhere, but I may just test the waters with some new things here and there. I’ve always hated when blogging started feeling more like a job, so perhaps less “official” content and more rambling is in order 😉
On that note, I might as well still share this looksie – no?
p.s. For those of you who love the “day in the life” recaps, I document that stuff more regularly on Instagram (@girlmeetslife) and Snapchat (@alagracie)!
What’s your favorite type of blog to follow (fashion, health, beauty, etc.)?
