Sometimes it's challenging for me to come up with relevant, interesting topics to blog about. I occasionally wish I was one of those cute twenty-something bloggers who could churn out a quick, quirky couple of paragraphs full of quips about what they're wearing and be done with it. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with the personality defect of having too damm much to say. I genuinely enjoy writing, especially about fashion and beauty and style. And let's face it, I'm not a cutsey twenty-something blogger. There's more to me than a quick couple of sentences about what I'm wearing. Is that bad? I occasionally feel the need to rein it in. I wonder...are my readers annoyed, or intrigued by my writing? Does all my chatter scare away potential followers? Would you prefer to see shorter, more concise posts? I'm genuinely curious so be honest.
In any case, this week I wrote a lot. Here on Dress With Courage, I:
- Spent the day with fifteen Dallas fashion bloggers;
- explored the history of denim and gushed about my love for skinny jeans;
- tried my hand at pattern-mixing and got harshly criticized by a seven year-old;
- continued my Thrifting 101 series with tips regarding the best days to thrift;
- shared news of my feature in this week's IFB Links a La Mode;
- wrote a full review of the Dallas Bloggers Meetup, soon to appear on The Southern Fashion Bloggers site;
- answered questions regarding my favorite beauty products for Fashion beauty friend Friday;
- wore a lot of purple, and wondered how much my buying patterns are influenced by models in advertising.
If you're visiting my blog for the first time, please consider becoming a follower, tweeting with me on Twitter, or becoming a Facebook fan. As a relatively new blogger, I get embarrassingly, ridiculously excited when reading a new comment or gaining a new follower. I appreciate you all so much!
