I am always looking for new blogs to follow. I think there are a lot of creative minds, and bloggers out there and I want to make sure I am not shutting myself off by only reading a handful. I was on Cupcakes and Cashmere – one of my faves – last week and there was a link to this blog – The Everygirl and I instantly fell in love. As soon as you land on the page there is a lot to look at, which kept me stimulated enough to read through a bunch of different articles without getting bored. I looked over the travel section (since travel is also a huge passion of mine) and the decor articles, the beauty, the culture and the fashion section. I love that this blog has so much to offer, The Everygirl focuses on more than just one facet which is what I love so much about it.
While I was on the site, I found this article about marketing authenticity by Lindsey Saletta. Authenticity is something I feel I am currently battling and the article really helped me feel happy about my blog, it helped me to remind myself to write and post about what I love, without worrying about whether or not people will love it as much as me. This is after all my blog, and it is important I stay true to myself, and not conform to what I think people will like best – at the end of the day this is for me.
” There is an instincit value in who you really are, not who you want to be, or wish you were, but who you really are and how you really feel. The real you is where the passion happens. It’s where progress happens. It’s where compassion, and truth and adventure happen.”
I think this quote perfectly sums up how everyone should think about themselves. We are all unique and different in our own way and we need to showcase that as best we can, whenever we can.
