What’s a blog? Oh, I don’t know. I think it should be whatever you want it to be. For me, it’s a way to share and connect certain parts of my life with you guys.
I used to blog privately, then I slowly started sharing bits more of my life, especially when I moved to Australia. After that, I kept posting life updates here and there. I did “Blogmas” for two consecutive years, where I challenged myself to write an entry every day for the month of December (Christmas 2016 & 2017). Then I got busy, drama happened, and I reverted to writing my thoughts in private.
I started this new blog in January 2017. I honestly didn’t know what to put in it. 14 years of blogging, and I still don’t really know what a “blog” is.
You see, i’m not a “big time” blogger. I’m not a “brand ambassador”, i’m not even an “influencer”. I’m just… a writer. I just want to reach out to YOU, whoever you are that’s reading this. I wanna share what makes me happy, sad, angry, and giddy… in the hopes that you’ll enjoy my [virtual] company, get inspired, or learn something new.
I’ve recently audited the contents of my cellphone gallery and found a preponderance of #OOTDs (a.k.a Outfit of the day) and pictures of flowers & trees. Meanwhile, my journal and Note apps are full of poems, thoughts about love, debt, and adulting.
It’s just a matter of marrying the images with the written content, and that… is what i’m blogging.
I’m tired of thinking what my niche would be, i’m just gonna be me.
