why i started a blog

why i started a blog

i found out about blogs around middle school / beginning of high school and they always enthralled me. through instagram i found countless lds fashion bloggers that gave me daily clothing inspiration. i would often look at them and try to find similar outfits in my closet to try and match. this was such a new and exciting thing to me. lifestyle bloggers soon came into the picture. to name a few: cara loren, the day book blog, and taza have all been some of my favorites. i've watched these blogs from the beginning and they constantly inspire me by how they are creating new content and even making a business out of it.

i knew i wanted to start a blog but didn't actually do it until i returned home from my mission. by then, blogs were a dime a dozen! it was intimidating to be honest. yet i wanted to stick with my passion for this new and still developing idea of blogging. i blog because i love it. as cliche as that sounds i just love it. writing, taking photos, creating content. it lets me share my creativity on my own personal space. it's so COOL. i hope to engage my readers with interesting content but my main goal in starting a blog is to share how i leave a little part of me, my sparkle, wherever i go. whether that be at work, school, or through this blog i hope to accomplish this goal.

ps...this jacket? it's from my father in law! straight 80s ;)
