Hey guys! Do you prefer the term “influencer” or “blogger”? I feel like both of those words have negative connotations lately and I truly don’t understand why. There have been times when I have told people that I am a blogger (I prefer that term over influencer) and they have made negative comments about it or don’t take it seriously. Blogging is just like any other job! It is a competitive, creative, challenging, often difficult but very rewarding job (or maybe hobby for some!)
Bloggers/influencers do just that: they influence people. I absolutely love what I do and I do have another job but it never feels like work to me. I never thought of myself as a creative person but blogging has really changed me into one. I can understand why some bloggers get a bad rap (not being authentic, expecting things for free, etc) but trust me when I say that not all of us are like that. I try to focus on empowering others, sharing my life and style and just getting my voice out there which is super cathartic for me.
I am so grateful that I was able to get over my vulnerability of starting my blog and that I have so many amazing people who have supported me every step of the way. Thank you to everyone who visits my blog or follows along on my instagram or any other form of social media. It truly means more than you could imagine and I love getting messages from you. I hope that I am able to inspire you all in one way or another. No matter what your job or hobby is: just focus on killing it and don’t look back!
