Last fall, I put a lot more effort into "growing" my blog than I am now. My follower count was growing really fast and I had giveaways, reviews, and so on.
As you may have noticed, that has all slowed down! It's not because I don't care about my blog, It's because I don't think I was blogging for the right reasons.
I'm going to be totally honest here: I wanted to make money. I thought it would be super cool if my "job" was a fashion blogger in high school because it's not typical and I'd be making money off of something I enjoy doing. I did make some money, but nothing ideal. The truth is, I just did not have the time or effort to create a business out of my blog!
I'm partly glad I did the whole blogging-as-a-job thing, because now I've been exposed to the business world and I've learned a lot about myself. Although I love having a blog, the business side of blogging just wasn't for me. Unfortunately, there's a business aspect to every job. But I don't want to jump right into that if I don't learn to love what I'm doing first!
So, I've decided to keep writing my blog for fun. I'm not setting any goals or ambitions, I'll just keep doing what I'm doing. I'd love to get an even larger audience so maybe I'll connect with a few more people when school gets out. But for now, I'm just going to write- and if something more comes out of it, then that would be great! But I'm not going to try so hard, because then it just loses all the meaning.
