Today's post will probably be the shortest of them all. I have been working on a few things for the blog which I will be slowly releasing one by one. I realised that in as much as I rebranded last year, not much about my blog had changed except for the name, logo and template. So this means that my blog has been the same for 5 years. Well based on the same concept. This sudden realisation has had me craving for change and that is such a major thing I am working on to bring back the love I had for this blog of mine when I first started. I think change is always good and I am all up for embracing this change. Of course with all ideas and concepts comes the issue of execution and I pray that the execution for these things shall fully transcend in all I hope to do for this blog.
So this is just a form of encouragement to those who have been at it for years and are feeling it is time to get back to the real meaning of blogging and the real passion for it. I think with all the fuss around monetising, many of us have lost the meaning of blogging and have forgotten what it felt like when we first started. Back then it was just about the love for fashion and sharing it with fellow fashion lovers. Now I think a lot of that is slowly fading away. There is so much more emphasis on gaining followers and getting the attention of large organisations but the passion I feel is slowly fading in a number of the blogs I follow and love and in mine.
As someone following this as a career I am certainly all up for the above (followers, collaborations and monetising) but I believe it is passion and love for what we do that will bring all the above and more and it is passion that will keep us posting even when nobody is reading. It is also this passion that will make it less difficult to wake up earlier to take blog pictures before work. It is this passion that will keep us consistently posting each week even when the results are not what we expect. So it is so important to keep that passion alive.
So I am on a quest to claim back my passion and to look forward to the joys of being a creative because that's what we are right? I look forward to looking forward to all things blogging again and I am so grateful for the opportunity to work on starting afresh with all of you who have been supporting this blog since 2012.
For those feeling the way I am, I hope you will join me too in this mini quest.
