So so often I talk to women about wanting to start a blog. They tell me they can’t write like you do… I’m like “GURL HAVE YOU READ MY BLOG!?!?”
I flop on grammar; I have a hell of a time trying to get my point across. Also, in general school was not my strong point. You know how people are like oh “I loved English!” or “Oh I was really good at geometry!” like I loved recess like I was really great at recess.
So #1 if you think you can’t write like ok sthap because you can, you just write like you, you find your voice. Because that voice inside is hella special, it’s you and it’s unique. When you find your voice and when you begin to own it that is when you’ll begin to get traction. When you’re so unapologetically you, people will sense that and fall in love with that.
Lately, I’ve been really adamant about people starting a blog, why? I mean blogging is dead right?
My answer to that is I personally don’t give a flying dong if blogging is dead. Starting a blog was the number one thing that allowed me to find my voice, allowed my quirky uniqueness to shine through and helped my all-over confidence.
So why am I so happy that I started beside the confidence booster that it gave me? The community. Specifically my private fb group Empowered Babes Empowering Babes. That group means SO MUCH to me. I think now more than ever we need each other. We need to relate to each other, and we need to fucking listen to each other. We need our voices, we need to be heard, and we need to be loved.
Starting a blog was the best damn thing I did,. I love talking about clothes, taking cute pics wit my gals pals but then genuine friendship and community built from it is what I thrive on. I thrive on you. I thrive knowing you’re here, relating to this and wanting the same thing.
I get lit up know that you want a community too, you want to build a place where you can share and relate to others. That is what this fucking thing is about. It’s SO not about the free clothes or brand deals it is about the community. To me, that’s much sexier and more meaningful than the brand deals and free clothes
The second I opened up about my weight loss and how I found self-worth was the second my blog starting getting traction. Why? Because it was authentic, real and relatable.
Sweet friend, you can do that too. and I encourage you to do that.
