Does Anyone Still Read Fashion Blogs?

by

Hey guys, long time no blog post eh? Who reads fashion blogs anyway? My site was recently hacked, I think that was a sign for me to get my backside back on here, otherwise, silly sites will try to take over. Jokes apart, let's really talk about my hiatus. Apart from me enjoying life and the beautiful summer we've been having in the UK, a lot of changes have happened. Not bad changes - perhaps, I should say growth. Who reads fashion blogs? Firstly, I've been thinking, who reads fashion blogs nowadays. I no longer enjoy reading fashion blogs - what people wore, how they wore it, what they love about it blah blah blah. I could blame this on Instagram, personal preference, taste in clothes, lifestyle... a whole lot of stuff. But deep down, I know I no longer enjoy reading a whole lot of 300 words or more on 'how to wear a polka dot ...

Personal Journal | Best of Both Worlds

by

A personal journal. So, this is real life... I decided to share a part of my career journey on my blog. I was a bit uncertain if to write this or not, but I hope it inspires someone and encourages you to work hard towards your personal goals. Whatever your personal goals may be. (It's a bit lengthy, on so fasten your seat belt!) I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but one step closer. Every step counts... A little over 3 years ago, if anyone had told me I would ever go back to wanting to become an accountant, I would have laughed in their face. Like really? No part of me likes studying. I don't think I ever studied throughout my university or school days. I listened in class, attendance was 100%, took notes and skimmed through the textbook before exams. Memorised what I could and paid a little more attention to ...

How I Do It

by

Following the questions I had from my Blogging and Working Full-Time post, I've decided to share some light on How I do It. I'm not going to lie and say, it's so easy, but it's do-able - and yes, it's possible to be successful at doing both - working, studying or any other life choices combined with being a blogger. Time Management I think this is one thing everyone struggles with. Having a routine or structure works for me. In saying this, I hate anything that's too restrictive, so, I'm flexible when planning and my self-imposed restrictions feel nothing like being in a military camp. I know the things I can't accommodate or afford to do, so I've had to compromise on them. The moment more time is spent on things that are not of high importance, the less time I can spend on the important things - priorities. Prioritize For my blog to thrive, ...

Blogging And Working Full Time

by

I’ve had many people ask why I haven’t taken the leap of faith, packed up the 9 to 5 and go 24 hours on blogging. Yes, 24 hours because that’s the reality of being a full-time blogger, there aren't really any days off. Blogging full time is the ultimate goal for most bloggers nowadays, as fancy as it looks and sounds, why haven't I gone blogging full time then? Firstly, why should this be in question, since when did blogging full-time become a measure of how successful you are as a blogger/individual, why should this be every blogger's goal? Not blogging for a living doesn't make you less of a legit blogger, e.g. because you are studying part-time doesn't mean you aren't a student or better still, as hardworking as a full-time student.  I'm not a full-time blogger so I can't give tips on how to become one, but being content ...
