Changes - Growing with a blog.

Kids, it is time we had a talk about 
The birds and the bee's
Why daddy sometimes dresses like a mommy 
Why bob the builder's face looks different 
Why we have to wait for Grandma to kick it before going to Florida
Changes - concerning the body)
Changes - not concerning the body
Changes 
It is time for a change.

*Throws on new pair of heels, snaps fingers, joins a yoga class, never goes to yoga class, justifies adding 'Yogi' to a string of social media descriptions.*

I started my first blog (not this one) many moons ago; I was 15, I had punk-looking hair and enough eyeliner to single-handedly ruin the reputation of multiple make-up brands across the region. Been fifteen and that, I found myself having very little control over what I could do in regards to life and in creating a future for myself. I had no power and no voice; there was no differentiation between myself and the boy who sat at the back of class scoring girls asses out of 10, as far as the eye could see, we were all in the same boat and I was just like everyone else. 

Blogging became a little escape, I didn't feel the need to tell anyone about it because blogging alone gave me all the assurance I needed in knowing that I was doing something different and setting myself apart. I was taking a step towards creating a positive future, and at long last, been fifteen didn't hold me back.

I know what you're thinking.

Here's the poop 
I am not 15 any more. (SURPRISE
My eyeliner no longer worries passersby and my hair has little to no punk to it.
Having said that, I still religiously listen and head-bang to the same terrible punk music. 

The number one advice given to bloggers has always been, 'Write posts that YOU would read.' 
Different types of posts interest me now, and I believe that it's time to wander off into different branches of blogging. I haven't changed, but my interests have and I would like to create posts that have that air them. 

'As we mature, the relationship matures with us.'

  1. I totally get this. I think for a while now I tried to mold myself into becoming some super cool fashion blogger and as much as I do enjoy fashion posts and have taken an interest in photography because of it, I kinda want to implement more written and lifestyle type posts as opposed just fashion. Change can be hard but also worth it too I think! Excited to see what you do with this blog :)

  4. My blog definitely follows this mentality, I think. I started blogging when I was 12, and it was always about my life. When I was 18 I blogged about my life when I was living all around Canada, then I went back to blogging general stuff about me and some stuff that would kind of fall into a "lifestyle" category (although that term is fairly recent). I took a hiatus for a year or so, and came back in 2012 with a blog about moving abroad but... niche writing isn't really for me, I think. So my blog now is a scrapbook of sorts. And I like it that way. :)

  5. My blog has changed, even over the last few months it has started to head in different directions, but I think that is the lovely thing about blogging, it can evolve with you.

  6. I've seriously started countless blogs all over the internet and in the past they always failed because I wasn't being true to who I was. I was writing things I felt like other people wanted to read. Now, I genuinely don't care one bit haha. I just want to be able to share the things I love with other people that might love them too. I mean there's only so many times I can tell my husband about a new lipstick I'm obsessed with or how much I want a random pair of leggings with fawns on them before he wants to throw something at me haha. I love how much blogging can evolve with you as you grow and change as a person and as you progress through different stages of your life. Thanks for this post! I needed to hear it! And also, "Where's the poop, Robin?" Hahahaha HIMYM is seriously my favorite show of all time.
