There are so many thoughts and feelings running through me right now, but first things first, I’m incredibly humbled by the reaction from my latest post. Never in this world could I’ve even imagined that it would effect so many. And by many, I’m referring to those of you who actually took the time and reached out. Although I’ve shared personal journeys before, it still amazes me how powerful sharing can actually be. That being said, thank you all for sharing your thoughts, feelings and your own personal journeys with me.
The aftermath of Fridays article allowed something to happen – these past weeks I have been referring to it as a creative constipations (I’m sorry if you’re getting grossed out but its the best way I can explain it), meaning having tons of thoughts in my head but as I sit down to produce a piece, my head goes blank. Writers block is maybe a more appropriate phrase. Needless to say, I feel lighter now although I still have so much to say – and enable to actually paint a picture for you with my words.
One thing that I’ve voiced on several occasions yet never on the blog is how different the style’s are in terms of international fashion/lifestyle bloggers versus Swedish. The difference that I’m referring to is while international fashion/lifestyle bloggers create content with an actual angle, the vast majority of people in this country show beautiful pictures and declare what they’ve done during the day. In other words; a diary.
I would like to know what you think about this topic – do you prefer reading content that has actually something to with the pictures that are being shown or the diary version? Please, and I mean it, please share your thoughts because I find it so interesting to see what other opinion are. Be anonymous for what I care, I just want to know.
As for me, this is my point of view as a person whom has a genuine interest in fashion and have been reading blogs for many years; watching beautiful pictures is great but when the person in the picture tells their side of the story it becomes more interesting. It enables to learn something new, thoughts and feelings why the look is put together the way it is – or if its for a special occasion. But when I’m seeing a great look and a few sentences about whom they’ve met that day, whom they’ve had coffee with and so on – it becomes boring and frankly irrelevant. Guys, am I being too hard? Maybe, but honestly that’s just my point of view and others may find that content interesting.
As you can see, these soon to be six paragraphs proves that mymy creative constipation is gone. Hopefully, you didn’t loose the will to keep reading in the process or get tiered. But I really hope one brave soul shares their point of view in the comment section above.
