blogging // how i got started.



when i read other bloggers' "how i got started" posts, i laugh to myself [and at myself.] most bloggers set out to document their college experience or their wedding planning process or their first years of marriage or the lives of their adorable kids or their DIY home projects.

i, however, do not have an elaborate 'how i started my blog' story.
i did not go to college. i am not married. [not even a boyfriend!] i do not have any kids. and i still live with my parents.

truth be told - i randomly stumbled across sydney's blog three years ago and instantly fell in love with her impeccable style [one of my favs] and witty humor [awkward & awesome]. i spent all the free time i had that weekend obsessively reading her entire blog all the way back to her first post [i'm not as creepy as that sounded.] by the end of that weekend, i made the decision to start my own blog. the only previous online presence i had was writing little blog posts on myspace [flashback!] that were mostly read by close friends and a few stalkers.

my first blog was a learning experience - mostly on what not to do with a blog. good lessons were learned, some the hard way - but that experience equipped me with the knowledge to make the most of my words and photos online.

when i started fresh with this space, blogging quickly became my favorite creative outlet. it correlates with my passion of photography. i can share my photos and my heart. there are ladies out there who can relate with my joys and sorrows. blogging is a form of art. it's not understood by some, but that doesn't decrease its value. anyone can start a blog these days, but it's what you do with it that matters.
