A few weeks ago I got together with several fellow Richmond bloggers for a “blate” or “blogger date.” It was so fun catching up with Jayme and Mendi and Aimee, and meeting Sarah and Sara. We sipped Bloody Mary’s, white wine and sangria and chatted for hours about blogging (is your family supportive, does your boss know), social platforms, fashion vs. beauty blogs, favorite books, best local bars, tattoos, and of course shopping. Amidst the secrets revealed was how blogging challenges your style. I admit how easy it is to wear jeans, forgo jewelry, throw your hair up daily or wear mismatched flats. Blogging doesn’t make my style, but it gives me (forces?) an excuse to be creative with dressing. Since I’m no good with make up or art, I’ll stick with dressing and blogging. Besides, it gives me a way to wear neon yellow with pops of blue and white and makes it a-ok.
Why do you blog and what do you love most about it?
