While some of you may be well informed by the term ‘blogging’ or who a ‘blogger’ is, there are still a handful of people who are doubtful about the workings of it all. Even at this point having to clarify that blogging is different from modelling and there is a reason why I am paying (from my own pocket) to keep my website running is beyond me.
I have come across people liking pictures on social media and still questioning about the outfit when it is all mentioned in the posts on my blog. I mean if it was only about tagging my dresses on Instagram why would I even keep a website. We bloggers kill ourselves to think out of the box concepts, improve our posing skills, work on editing and write meaningful content. How is that equal to modelling? Unlike models, I buy my own clothes and makeup, nobody is paying me to take out time to shoot these looks or to do all the styling (unless stated/collaboration). And come on, I am no model material! So when I come across such remarks, I wonder if the other person is mocking me. ;P
This is the first time I am talking (rather ranting) about something that bothered me but I have been blogging for more than 3 years now and there is a lot that has gone into it during this period. I have worked hard in maintaining a steady blog and to put up relevant content every single time. Not to forget the number of stressful hours spent while working on the layout and design of my website. I have come a long way with the posing and makeup skills and Shivam has grown a lot as a photographer too, hence better pictures. And all this while working on our respective full time jobs. Now that is a personal choice but at this point I am really proud that I decided to work on something I loved so deeply. But to come across people who think of it as modelling without even reading through my blog feels disheartening.
Every article on my blog has a personal story to it. It can be anything from my travels to a trend that I like or something that catches my fancy as a lifestyle blogger. I am not here to just show you the clothes I wear or the pictures we click. I am here to connect, to covey my idea of styling and share my views about something that I feel will be beneficial for the readers too. Now you are bound to see my face here because after all it is a personal blog.
With that I would like to end this rant here and also this post with a handful of outfit pictures we shot a while back. 🙂
Also! Don’t forget to add me on Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook for all behind the scene actions while shooting these looks or the daily life shenanigans. Let’s get to know each other a little more! 🙂
