May marks three years of Rock Paper Glam! And boy has it been a roller coaster of amazing times. There have been challenges, momentous experiences, new friends, new brands, and more than anything abundance of laughter. I cannot believe everything blogging has brought into my life, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Leading up to today, I’ve taken time to reflect on what I want to accomplish this year. The first thing I began thinking about was all the silent rules that blogger are to follow. Those little nuances that have been stressing me out — I took that list and tossed it in the garbage. Liberated by taking the limitations off, I instantly became excited all over again as if I was beginning the process from scratch. While I might not have a curate Instagram nor be on Snapchat, I will bring a ton of personality.
Which brings me to the next point. I began really thinking deeply about what I wanted to express to you. I love fashion and beauty. I will always have such a deep passion for both, but I feel that isn’t all of me. When I first began blogging five years ago on a completely different blog, I solely wrote about life experiences. I miss that! I miss sharing my struggles and how I’ve overcome different challenges. I miss helping individuals on a larger scale. More than anything, I miss sharing real life stuff that has the potential to inspire positive change.
While fashion and eco-friendly beauty will still be discussed, I am introducing a larger theme to this blog– EMPOWERMENT. I believe that in a society saturated with fantasy and pushing reality under the rug, we are CRAVING the truth. That is what I look forward to bringing to the table.
I want to sincerely thank all my blogger friends and supporters who really do care. I appreciate your comments and daily love. The joy that has been brought into my life from making those sincere connections is priceless.
P.S. We are looking for contributors! I would love to hear your experiences as well. If you have overcome a challenge, completed a life goal, or have a daily ritual that has helped your life, I am all ears! We are looking for contributors and collaborators to take this ever-expanding blog to a whole new level. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
