Food For Thought

People, it's time to get down to the nitty-gritty and release my honest-to-goodness thoughts...

As a budding blogger, I find myself asking questions like, 

"What makes a great blog?" 
or 
"How do I increase my following?"
or 
"How do I make my visuals really stand out and appeal to my readers?"

I marvel and awe at the success of the uber-famous fashion and lifestyle bloggers. For some, their success came quick. For others, it took patience and time as they worked their way around the learning curve. I fall into this second category. But I will be honest, I get frustrated sometimes. It's easy to get down in the dumps and want to give up. Then I remember the old adage,

"Rome wasn't built in a day"

So true. 

With these poopsy-pants feelings that most of us have probably experienced at some point, I was given a new sense of empowerment after reading this article. It is an Independent Fashion Bloggers post speaking to how blogging creates amazing character, which can and will lead you to goals and dreams you never knew you had within you. 

I love it.

Aww I think we all get a bit annoyed sometimes with followers and bits and bobs, I guess it's just one of those things.

I wouldn't sweat it too much lovely, you look like you're doing well and your posts are tops! :)

I'm gong to have to check out that post. :) And you have a wonderful blog and great following! It's hard to not compare ourselves to bigger blogs, but we have to try not to. Success comes from the experience we have. So if you're making wonderful bloggy friends and gain from your daily posts- then I'd say you were a very successful blogger. :)
