In the past week I’ve seen bloggers unsurprisingly open up more then normal about the state of ”blogging”. I’m not surprised because they do it a lot, and I’m always here for it. Half of the time I agree with it, and then a part of me has other feelings. Blogging is somewhat of a business these days. Sure there are plenty of blogs out there that are still bonifide and original, who have no intentions. They simple want a space to express their personal style, their favorite things, and their inspiration.
There are blogs out there who are solely out to make this part of their main income. There are amazing blogs and shitty ones dare I say. Relax…my idea of shitty has nothing to do with appearances and a lot to do with content and orginaility. You have blogs that are so forced with their links and C/O items and you wonder…okay girl “we get it” . I don’t knock too many people’s hustle, do your thing!
With the state of the economy and jobs many young ladies, and gents are making their own way. I mean who didn’t dream of actually having their say in Fashion? Even if it’s in the confines of the cyber world? Even if they only reach 5 people a day or 5000. I love it all, the good the bad and the ugly. For me blogging was always an outlet that half of my friends aren’t aware of. I was fine with that, it’s my space to talk about things that might be silly to people I knew personally.
While I agree on some of the setiments of bloggers like Christina . The consensus seems to be that folks aren’t visiting other blogs any more, and they are focusing on their own Personal space in terms of blogs. While I say, do what you want. I could never stop enjoying blogs. There are so many out there, there are so many ways to find inspiration, and to make something your own. What’s super easy is to box all these amazing bloggers in the same area and say that none of them are inspiring. Now I don’t want to get off topic. Most of the blog post, tweets, and debates I’ve seen lately revolve around girls with funky dunky attitudes once they get a few hits on their sites. I can attest to this…and it’s annoying. I mean I had a blogger blow me a kiss recently at an event….a fucking kiss like I was a crazed fan or something. I could be delucional for taking offense that at 26 another women has blown me a kiss instead of actually speaking to me, or waving. Maybe it was the 10 or so necks who turned and looked at me like I was “an adorable puppy” when she did it. I felt defeated for some reason…..anywayyyy.
By no means would I stop enjoying my hobby of looking at blogs because a few girls who make a little money from their blogs and let it go to their head stop me from enjoying good blogs. I treat blogs like little magazines. I love going through them all. I love pinterest, I love tumblr, I love it all, and you even label me a typical blogger. When i go meet up with other bloggers I ooh and aww over outfits, I take pictures, I network. I’m not ashamed at all. But to wrap it up. If you really enjoy blogging, enjoy it, and don’t concern youself with the next person. Who, where and what they are doing. If they have a crap attitude, unfollow them. If they are on a high horse…secretly hope that the horse suddenly goes Lame but by all means don’t let it stop you from enjoying a hobby. Yolo you know.
All week I’ve been looking at images, thinking about spring. Thinking about recipes, and outfits. There is still so much to be inspired by on blogs and sites. I below are a
a lot few things that are inspiring me as the weather changes.

I feel like I don’t need to comment on these. They are simply the bomb. I hate my toes, but I’m willing to get in these and go for a few rides in them.
I always wish i lived in an area where pools on rooftops were a given…fun pools not the boring City run pools….but clearly this is a cat pool which makes it awesome in my book.
Bold Blue make up on creamy dark skin. It looks amazing. I want to experiment with colors as it gets warmer.
