How you doing? <Insert Wendy Williams gesture> 🙂
I can’t believe that I’m clocking two years. Two years ago today I created my first little blog post here . Then watch me make more cringe-worthy posts here and hereS. *1000 face palms* We all start somewhere. But here I am over 70,000 views later. Some of my proudest moments being when someone comes up to me and goes ”I read your blog” or being featured on various website alongside other top bloggers.
I didn’t always have this website.I moved here this year. I graduated from a 5 Megapixel phone camera to MUHORO MACHARIA taking my photos. Shout out to my sister Nicole. She’s always there when I need photos,even during the weirdest times of the day. Through gritted teeth, she still takes the photos 😀 Also,to my better half who is my biggest fan and keeps encouraging me. I remember when I was still looking for direction for my blog. Did I want to be downloading photos from google and post them? Did I want to talk about runway fashion? Street fashion? Take photos of others and feature them? I realised I wanted to give people a taste of my personal style and so I settled on photographing my outfits and experience and I guess here we are today. 🙂 Levels done change now. My theme song for my website is this song(start at 42 seconds):
Here are some things I’ve learnt from my toddler years of blogging:
1. Do what you love,be yourself, be original,be different.
2. No one likes mediocre.
3. Don’t be too eager to say yes to brands or companies. Some people will take advantage of you.
4. Followers don’t come overnight.
5.It’s a jungle out there. The hate is real. You need thick skin.
6. Consistency is key.
7. Never underestimate the power of social media.
8. Have fun and enjoy the ride!
