I have noticed it has become increasingly more challenging as of late to maintain my blog on a regular basis. Whether it is the occasional writer’s block or an outfit obstacle, I think I know the reason why. Chic Vic turns two years old today.
I’ve heard of the “terrible twos” with regards to the little humans we call children, but can this phase apply to something non-human, like a craft, skill, or hobby? Maybe, just maybe.
Blogging is a great pastime of mine, but it’s not all that easy. Although nobody is pounding on my front door (or rather, in the comments section of my blog or Chic Vic Facebook page) demanding a post, I still expect myself to deliver something at least once per week for my readers. The writer’s block can make this a challenge, and being my own worst critic often exacerbates the problem. Is my writing witty and engaging? Is the outfit blog worthy enough in the first place?
Despite all that, I still love doing what I do. Blogging is an outlet for me to voice my thoughts not only in creative writing but also in style experimentation. I’m still learning how to pose like America’s Next Top Model, and I don’t know how to maximize all the functions on the camera just yet. I challenge myself to think of new topics to write about instead of just plainly describing what I’m wearing. I love winning over new readers from all over the world. When I hear friends of friends comment on how much they like my blog, I know I’m doing something right. Maybe this phase should aptly be called the terrific twos instead. It’s not so terrible after all!
I have a humble amount of followers – what would I do without you? Thank you for every like and every comment that you leave. If you’re a passive follower, I thank you too. I don’t know what the future holds for me, but hopefully it involves reaching blogger celebrity status.
Yaaay! Happy 2nd Birthday to ChicVic.com!
I definitely understand this feeling! I often find myself feeling the same way and the writer’s block is tough. It’s so funny though because I think your blog is so great and your style is so effortless! I’m guessing there are many of us that feel this way…yet we all think the others are doing their blogging effortlessly!
Aw thank you! Yeah I guess we all go through the same struggles at some point. I find that I just have to keep typing and typing…and then go through a second or third revision. By then, it’s ready to be published! Style is a form of art! Your blog is fab too.
I just found your blog and I love it!! You have great style! I am a new fashion blogger and would love for you to check out my blog 🙂
Yay! Glad to have gained a new follower! How did you find me by the way? =)
