If Man Repeller existed 8 years ago, you’d probably hear I wanna be just like Leandra. Writing my days away, about the wittiest subjects you could possibly imagine (not even starting on how I’d also like her closet…).
Somewhere down the road it all got lost. Now… I’m merely scraping by, by two, three liners, like uuu, I love her outfit, she looks so fabulous and this purse is just stunning. Where did my love for articulated opinions go? Did watching too much Sex and the City had the reverse effect?
Reading fashion blogs* nowadays can brainwash you to previously described situation. Yes, a picture is worth a thousand words and yes, I’m all for pretty photos, but where did the actual words go? Did pictures leave us so speechless, that we forgot everything but oohhing and aahhiing? I love a proper editorial with nothing but a line what’s about, don’t get me wrong, but I also love to read few good paragraphs now and then.
Having said that, from today on, I’m gonna try to amp up my writing game. It’s not fair to judge, if you do the same. It’s not something I wanna do for living, but it’s certainly something that I genuinely enjoy. After all, I did start a blog because I wanted to write…. Starting with special folder in my Feedly, with blogs you need to read (not just look at) for inspiration and then I’ll try to do one good blog post per week. Sounds good?
But there comes the first challenge: What to write about? It seems that whenever I get myself to really write about something, all ideas go flying out the window. The truth is, this blog is not just for myself (otherwise, I’d probably stick with the journal), it’s also for you guys. So instead of just rambling my usual monolog about the weather and fabulous clothes, I want to blog about something deeper than that. And I would very much appreciate some suggestions about future posts. Let’s stay on fashion-related subjects for now, but let’s dig deeper. I want to challenge my brains to go beyond the one liners!
* Yes, I over-generalized to get my point across, and sadly, I usually also fall in this category. Blogs with more than two lines are still out there though!
