Am I a little hesitant? No. I am a lot hesitant. Blogging is something I’ve thought a lot about. I admire the girls who are confident enough to share their lives and give advice to others. If I had a penny for every time I thought about starting a blog, I’d have enough money to buy every glorious theme WordPress has to offer. It’s been about a two year process – writing a domain, buying the theme, then asking for a refund. But this is it, this is real, this is happening. Now.
All that aside, I want to get into the nitty-gritty: what this blog’s about, why I’m starting it, and what my intentions are for it.
I hope for this, two years from now, to be a one-stop-shop for all things lifestyle. Following Jesus, traveling, mental care, room design, nutrition, music, fitness, relationships, makeup/ skin care, transitioning into adulthood, etc. I want people to read what I write and turn around to lead the most vivid version of their life. The only obstacle is me. Honestly, this is ridiculously hard. I have a really hard time getting personal with people. When my instagram was up and running, I kept my posts surface-level and non-emotional. Occasionally, I’d post something outside my comfort zone, but I’d delete it within the hour. Instagram is hard for me because it gives people the impression we really know everyone when really, we only know what they post – instagram is a highlight reel. So I want to be real with you guys. I want to be open and honest and share…which leads me to another point. I don’t feel that my life is at all worth imitating. I’m a fair player of the comparison game & know that there are girls out there who are much more equipped and put together than me, so a lot of my thoughts/ advice might some across as cliche or mundane. I’m gonna try my darndest to be authentic to the core.
I want this to be a relatable blog. Something someone stumbles upon and are like “Holy smokes! This girl gets me!” The foundation of this blog will first and foremost be Jesus. That’s where my perspective comes from and where my heart resides. A lot of posts will probably be extended versions of things I write in my journals. Every month I have a new moleskin journal i write in and it’s helped me figure me out; to see all my thoughts on paper.
This is gonna be fun! Maybe it’ll help me get my life a little more organized. They do say the best way to stay accountable is to document what you do.
So here it is. Here I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being interested in me and the things I’m doing.
love, loh. xx
