Cultivating My Vision For This Blog

It's been a few months now since I began blogging consistently and I have a few thoughts to spew out as I trek along this journey. Let me begin with stating that when I started blogging (December 2015), I dreamt of this place being an outlet where I could share my insight with the world - a place where my knowledge (although still a work-in-progress) could inspire others. As the blogging industry evolved however, I found that I regressed in posting content simply because I felt as though I couldn't keep up with top influencers. As a result of school, work and a maturing adult relationship (aka marrying my husband), I wasn't exactly certain where blogging fit into my life. Since I started my blog out of a desire to over-share, I would still frequently think of blog post ideas, although none of these would come to fruition simply because I felt as though I never had the right equipment, the right setting or the right popularity. 

It took me a while to regain my courage to dive-in and work on my blog relatively full-time (I now put in half of my day blogging and on social media). In the midst of this, I've sincerely come to terms with the fact that I will never be a perfect blogger. As the saying goes in-real-life: "someone will always be better than you". As a result, I've had a sort of epiphany moment with regards to my vision for this blog. I've realized that what I really want for this blog, is for you as readers to feel as though you are truly walking into both my journal and my closet. I want you to feel as though you know me. 


For these reasons, in an effort to show you more of my "real-life", all the while sharing my fashion, beauty and lifestyle tips, I've decided to create more content that showcases the "real-life" aspects of my days and thoughts. In these posts, I will be chatting about life, and perhaps delving into some personal topics that can make things appear a little bit less than perfect. I hope that these posts will go over well with you guys! I'd also love to get to know my readers, since I want to build a strong community here on cynthialoewenblog.com. So please don't hesitate to comment on this post and/or on my social media accounts (Instagram is my personal fave - I'm a visual person).

What do you think of this new series?
