Hello folks, so I'm going to be straight up with you guys... this one's been sitting on the archives (along with 3 other posts) just chillin' until I got around to being able to write again. PSA DONT LET ANYONE TELL YOU ADULTING IS EASY. Just so you have a little bit of a background...I'm currently getting my hair done and typing up this post for you at the same time. ;) You mean that much to me...but if my hair looks crooked because I keep typing I blame you (I'm about 99% sure Joyce ~my hair stylist~ hates me for all the moving I'm doing). #sorrynotsorry
I realized while I do talk a lot on my blog...obviously, Demi, its called a blog for a reason *facepalm* I don't ever talk about my blogging or how I got started or what keeps me going. While I'll probably save the details for a later date, what I'm about to talk about is something extremely important to me as a "blogger" (I'm growing to dislike that term but for this post I'll keep it around...).
I'm not sure if you noticed...or maybe it's just me but everyone has a blog -- whether its food, fashion, travel, fitness...everyone has one. Not going to lie, it drove me crazy for a little bit, but then I realized something...it creats such an incredible community. You can search hashtag and find people that see life how you see it. And if not, you can get their perspective and it's honestly a beautiful thing. Now don't get me wrong, some people haven't figured out that bashing other creatives doesn't do ANYTHING so not everyone is genuine and nice, but I think collaborating instead of making it a competition is KEY.
These boss babes Emma from Emma's Style Blog + Caitlin from Caitlin Eliza are also Purdue Bloggers. We're all different majors, sororities, and have different backgrounds, but we connected becauase we share a love for one thing -- fashion.
So, go DM someone whose work you admire. ~guilty~ Be honest, them how they inspire you, and connect with other people that love what you love (or don't and have a different eye). Whether its someone at your high school, college, or office. Support each other...and grow together.
