Allow me to formally introduce myself, I’m your friendly neighborhood blogger with a dream, Amber.
Also, allow me to formally welcome you to my blog. Welcome! We’ll have tons of fun here!
This blog is more than a hobby for me, it is a manifestation of my talents, my dreams, and who I am as a person. Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to have a career in writing. And it could’ve been anything really; novels, magazine articles, blogs, as long as I got to write.
Unfortunately, life is not a Disney movie (ugh not fair right?!) and not everyone’s dreams come true. But I refused to be one of those people. Having already been in school for a career path far, far away from writing, I did not have many options. So I went the way of the web, and launched my blog in May of 2014. It’s been a little over a year now, and I’m proud of how far we have come.
My content is getting better and more frequent (right?) and I’m starting to see everything in my life in a different, more positive light. My dream may not have been paved out for me, but there’s a DIY method for everything nowadays!
I promise to only get better from here. My constant goal in life is to always improve my life. I don’t set goals only in the New Year and tell myself to try again next year if things don’t work out. I re-evaluate after 6 months. Lucky for me, I’m born in June (pssst, it’s my birthday today!) and so that gives me just the right amount of time to set new goals for myself.
What does that mean for the blog? And more importantly, why should you care? I’ll give you five good reasons why!
Reason #1 : More Me!
I know I promised you guys 3 posts a week. Some weeks I deliver, and some weeks I don’t. No more of that! I promise! You guys will certainly get your 3 posts.
Reason #2: Better Quality
I’ve invested well into the blog and into my dream. I’ve got a Nikon DSLR to shoot the photos with, and a smaller point and shoot camera for daily OOTD photos and for possible vlogging. AND, the sweet machine I am currently writing this post on – my new Macbook Pro. It’s more portable than my last laptop and it’s an Apple product, which means cooler and easier to use programs such as iMovie and Final Cut Pro.
Reason #3: Expanding
This reason is a combination of reason 1 and 2. Launching a Youtube channel. I had a Youtube channel in the past, but those videos were horrible and thus are deleted! Now, with a better camera, good lighting and the power of Final Cut Pro, the Beyonce of video editing software, hopefully things will go better! You guys will have more frequent content, better content and interact with me on a more personal level. The two videos I have up now are just quick time-lapses that go along with some previous blog posts, but I hope to make more videos to supplement blog posts and reach out and have a place on other platforms.
Reason #4: Branching Out
No longer are my blog posts going to be just about what I’m wearing or what I’m loving (though they mostly still will be lol c’mon that stuff is fun!) but I’ll also incorporate posts exclusively on trends, continuing series like “Bag It!” and adding more. I want to take inspiration from what could be considered as the holy scriptures for bloggers – magazines! I’ll do magazine inspired looks for less, comments on cover stories, and trend alerts! Not only that, but I’ll likely branch into Hollywood fashion, giving my two-cents on the style of the stars and letting you guys know who I thought dressed the best and worst at high profile Hollywood events, and maybe some commentary on their makeup and hair looks as well.
Reason #5: I love this
I love having my own blog and free reign to do what I want with it. I’m excited for a lot of things: photography, video editing, expanding, getting new readers and friends, and sharing my dreams and talents with people like you – people who love to read or write blogs. Us creative types have found our perfect niche here on the internet. LETS USE IT UP!!
and like always, thanks for reading!
