I reached a new milestone: three years of blogging! Writing this sentence makes me feel so excited and most of all blessed. As a blogger, I felt many emotions during my blogging path. I struggled with writer’s block, months I couldn’t write! My fingers wanted to type but my mind was holding me back from what I love to do. Those months I felt insecure about my blog and asked myself many times: should I pull the plug? I struggled with lack of inspiration and motivation, how many outfits I should post? How many beauty looks? Does my readers like what I’m doing? So many questions holding me back from getting inspired to be motivated to write for my blog again.
However, when I do hit publish I get such a satisfying feeling. A feeling of perfectionism that is accomplished because there comes more to look than just hitting the publish button. English is not my native language. So, I must translate some words that I don’t know how to spell or I know the word in Dutch and Moroccan Arabic but not in English. I run through the spellcheck three times or even more! And on top of that I read my blogpost out loud to hear whether the sentence structure is good. So far, I did my very best and sometimes even when I hit publish I make small changes. When I do this, I sometimes blame myself by saying how couldn’t I have notice this spelling mistake? This cloud of perfectionism hangs on top of my head. Thank god after rain comes sunshine!
Speaking about perfection: making the perfect picture. I love taking pictures for my blog. I come in such ease when I combine colours and range the products. Using the right décor to add some flair into the pictures makes to me the perfect picture.
I am glad to say, with a smile on my face that I wouldn’t change anything about my blogging love. I appreciate my struggles. It makes me who I am: a girl that loves to blog.
