I love reading other people's blogs and there is no shortage of material out there, everyone is at it. I started blogging as part of my studies but soon it became a hobby; I love writing and I like to talk about myself therefore this seemed like the perfect outlet. The problem is the more good blogs I stumble across the more self-deprecating I am about my own; does it lack content, wit, good visuals? As I said I love to write but I want to write well, I am trying to make a career out of this after all. One of my very worst traits is my jealousy; at times I can be unattractively green and recently I have found myself suffering from a pretty severe case of blog envy. It is not just one blog I am jealous off, I find something great in every one I read and I am constantly trying to take inspiration from them on how to improve mine. Unfortunately no matter how much I try to change it, it always ends up the same-it is unequivocally 'me' and surely that it what a blog should be?
I am by no means a fashion expert yet I love fashion therfore that is what I choose to write about the most. Blogs like fashiontoast and FrouFrouu are amazing and highly aspirational but these girls have high-end wardrobes, photographer friends with fabulous cameras and model looks. I am a normal person, a graduate looking for her 'dream' job and currently failing to find it. For the first time in a while I have actually had spare money to spend on clothes and that excites me, so I write about it and take pictures with my Dad's pretty average camera. I love music and food too (not that you would have guessed or anything) so sometimes I write about that. One day, I hope that I can make this blog everything that I want it to be but for now I am just happy to have people reading.
