My love for blogging dates back to my early childhood. I remember being totally passionate about beautiful clothes. I have vivid memories of just going trough several shops, looking trough the latest collections and feeling totally inspired. It was like soul food for me.
At this time I was also reading tons of fashion magazines. And fashion blogs. Oh my dear… I was so addicted to them. I remember sitting in front of my laptop all day and night long scrolling trough hundreds of blogs. Angelica Blick was the first Blogger I’ve discovered. The second one was The Limits of Control. And to be honest, it feels so crazy that their blogs still exist and the whole blogging thing has developed that enomours.
At a time I felt this very strong desire, to create my very own fashion universe too. Set my own rules and share my ride with people all over the world. Within the years, I started writing and posting images with no other will, than to enjoy and share passion. It never crossed my mind, that one day I would actually be building a business out of blogging.
And to be honest, I was completely shocked to actually get paid for something that I considered pure fun. After about 2 years I decided to quit all my jobs, and dedicated my life to blogging. One of the most beautiful and exciting things about blogging is that you never feel that you have made it at any stage, the road is ever changing and it is near impossible to get bored. It is enjoyable to push and challenge yourself and the people you work with to create something big.
But to be completely honest, for many times I feared becoming a blogger. Though I felt I had an artistic gift about that, it was almost sinful to to make a business out of it. Gradually I learned that blogging has two sides that meet regularly and often overlap.
After feeling self-consciousness a long time about this whole blogging thing, at a time I realized, that when you have a gift or a natural talent, it’s much nicer to share it than keep it to yourself. I love fashion and photography. I love making pictures. I enjoy the process and I love documenting life. Why should I actually keep it as a secret?
