After several years of hiding behind the walls of world wide web, I can now say that, this blog reaches my Facebook. Finally! Yes, I have already decided to share my blog to my other social media accounts. It might sound a little crazy but that's all true.
Most of the people I met through blogging told me that I surprised them in a lot of things. Here are the reasons:
#1. I don't share my blog on my Facebook. Because of that, I got a lot of whys. Well, the main reason why I do not publicize my blog on Facebook is that, there are lots of people who can see it. But that's the purpose of blogging, right? I have a lot of friends on Facebook, each has a different personality. Maybe I'm too shy to share my outfit posts. Or maybe, I was afraid to be judged. Contrary to what a blogger needs— a large audience—Then, it happened.
#2. Only few know about my blog. I'm talking about the people I meet in school, work, and everything that is related to my personal life. And when someone finds out about it, I just wanted to run away from them. 'Cause really, I don't know what to do. Lol. But when someone from school came to me and said that she knows my blog, I was like, girl are you serious? How did you freakin' find out?! Hahaha! But to tell you honestly, it feels good to hear that.
#3. I have no Instagram. Some, okay, most of the people who know that I am a blogger were surprised to hear that I have no Instagram. I remember one time when someone I met from a shoot I have collaborated with almost shouted in the room are you serious?! Oh yes I am. Very. No doubt. So why don't I have an Instagram? Every time I get this question, I always give the same answer: I don't want to get addicted to it. I noticed that most people with IG were caged to their phones 24/7, before eating, they do every styling they know and sometimes, it gets to the point where they do crazy things just to get that perfect shot to be Instagram-worthy. I don't have anything against with people who loves Instagram. I just don't want that to happen to me. But there came a time when I asked myself, what if I have an Instagram? Sure, I'll have another set of followers. I'll gain more clients. And I'll get the exposure all bloggers want. Then I realized the importance of IG to every blogger, so I have decided to make one. Some brands prefer to have a lot of media platforms, especially Instagram.
Blogging helped me in so many ways. It made me realize who I really am and what I can do. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and meet great people. This blog has opened a lot of doors for me. So I am very thankful for keeping this blog. There's no reason for me to hide it. Once a secret remains not a secret anymore.
