So I’m back…. Again. lol But this time things are going to be a little different. *wink*
I’m pretty sure you all have noticed that I’ve been a little MIA in the blogging department. For some reason, I just lost all of my motivation and just didn’t feel like writing anymore. But after a few months away, I’ve gained some knowledge on why my blog is so important. And I’m finally realizing that I’m way more helpful when I’m writing and sharing my tips, thoughts and ideas. So here I am….. starting fresh, with a more simplistic feel, new ideas, and helpful tips.
I decided the best way for me to get back to what I love and start fresh is to archive my posts, remember why I started blogging in the first place, and because I just want to start over! So let me break that down just a little deeper.
Step 1: Out with the old, in with the new!
I decided to archive all of my previous posts for a few reasons. The first reason is because I was tired of looking at them, and it’s just that simple. Now don’t get me wrong, this is still going to be a place for all things beauty, fashion, and lifestyle…. but I just wanted to do it differently. Similar to the way I did my Instagram profile a year ago…… I got really tired of how my feed looked, archived all of my photos and started over. And within a year, I’ve changed the look of my content, grew my following, and learned so many new tips and tricks on how to stay consistent. I’m still learning and still growing, but I’m very happy with the decision I made and I figured why not do that here?
Step 2: Remembering why I started!
Blogging/writing has always been something that I loved…. I actually started blogging back in 2013/2014. I had a passion for sharing my love for fashion and style, and the feeling I felt after knowing that someone enjoyed the thoughts that I shared and actually took my advice, is a feeling that I can’t really explain. But I do know that it’s a feeling that I want to experience again. Remembering that the actual reason I started blogging was because I enjoy sharing my thoughts with others who actually appreciate what I have to say!
& Step 3: Because I want to!
To be completely honest, I don’t have to archive all of my blog posts. I feel like I’ve written some pretty good posts in my days, but the real reason I want to start fresh is because I just want to. And that’s just that on that.
So here we are. Fresh look, my first post in months…I’m smiling and I feel all happy on the inside. lol Well cheers to whatever your sipping right now and allow me to officially welcome you to The Official T.Ray blog.
