I turned 36 this past July, per usual I didn’t have a big party or some festive shindig because let’s face it, once one becomes a mom, the birthdays pretty much revolve around the kids and not so much focused on the self. Husband and I had a date night at a local popular restaurant and I wore my customary celebratory outfit – a red dress (which by the way is only $30). If you missed last year’s post you can read it HERE. I re-read what I wrote last year and everything still holds true except that feeling of vulnerability is not so fresh from coming off a full time job, mainly because Miss K have developed exponentially and also I’ve gotten used to the daily routine around kids, house chores, blog etc.
What do I want to reflect this year? Well, I am not too sure….maybe writing this will provide some light. I feel like my blog is at a standstill, I have given the thought on giving it a rest a couple of times. I think the blog space is getting very saturated whereby I see new blogs popping up every day and the successful ones have reached a new level of celeb status. The rest of us are kind of just stuck in the middle ground, hoping to break through. I’ve thought about going back to work once the kids are in school and Miss K is acclimated to the new routine without her mommy around her 24/7 (I may go into depression thinking that she no longer will be sticking to me like a piece of gum). I even had a crazy thought of starting a new business venture (more on that later).
This year is the first year I write about NSale and as I see blogger after blogger posting the same things over and over, I wonder whether we are being brain washed by publishers to just sell sell and sell. Gone the creative personal style, everyone just want to influence their followings to buy buy buy. It doesn’t help when we get prompts from publishers that “The End is Near for Getting that Sale!!” I’m not above this social phenomenon by all means, but I just find it a bit ironic when I see everyone selling the same things. So what can I do to improve my personal style? What value can I provide to my readers by coming to my blog space? What inspirations can they draw from looking at my #OOTD? That is my daily question.
Earlier in June I started the Posh Mom Chats segment interviewing fellow successful mommy bloggers who epitomizes the ones who can do it all motif and interviewing them actually helps myself feeling more motivated. I hope that it also provided more value to my readers to feel equally inspired, and finding these interviews interesting to read. Thank you all to my readers for following me along thus far. I plan to have more inspiring stories and original outfit ideas to share with you all!
