In this post she describes the beginning of her blog, the changes it's been through, and the direction she'd like to take it. Now, her blog has quite a few more followers than mine, but she made me realize that I needed some direction as well. She inspired me to take a good look at my blog and figure out where I wanted it to go.
When I first started blogging last August I really wanted to share my experiences as a recent college grad (which I still want to share), but I also started to feel a lot of pressure from other blogs out there.
I wanted to be as cute and creative as them, I wanted to have the creative blog title, with the sarcastic humor, and awesome "outfits of the day". I realized though, that the more I tried to be like other blogs, the further away I felt from the community that followed me, and that I admired so much.
So, after reading Joelle's post, I realized I needed some direction. I decided that the thing I can offer to this blog, that no one else can, is myself. My unique personality, experiences, and thoughts, and that's exactly what I'm going to do. My blog is going to be "Just Bri" and not modeled after anyone else.
It's amazing, as soon as I decided on a direction I reached back out to Alyx to do my design work, and as soon as I saw what she came back with, I KNEW that I was finally doing something right with this little blog of mine (it doesn't hurt either that she's an amazing designer).
Reach out to her for any work you might need, cause girlfriend is awesome!
Anyway, I hope y'all like the new changes, and I hope you'll stick around! Blogging has been such a fun experience, I never realized how much it could teach me about myself.
