When i have content to write, i dont have outfits to post and when i have a dozen recent outfits to sort through and post, i dont have anything meaningful to write. The idea somehow got fixed in my mind that Both need to be there. Because i enjoy them both immensely. Thinking about something, forming my thoughts and putting it on paper (literally too) helps me get my thoughts in focus. I am a ‘list-making-person’. I tend to make lists for everything. You name it and i’ve got that list. Right from the kind of diet i would like to follow(notice i dint say i follow it?), my exercise routine, list of things to do, things to buy, schedule for reading for exams…. everything! So its mandatory in my life that i write.
Writing = clarity of thought
When i find myself posting outfits for consequetive posts, i feel shallow. Which i know am not!. (Since when did wanting to dress up and look good become ‘being shallow’? Probably since the time i started complicating things.) And the same thing happens when i just keep writing and not adding the ‘outfit fun’ to my blog. Some days I think its balanced, on others am not so sure. On those ‘unsure’ days, of not knowing which to post, i tend to ignore this little corner on the web for a few days. Is it necessary that it should be a perfect balance. I dont know. And who better to answer this question if not me?
Trust me to complicate something as simple as blogging! As you guessed today is one of ‘those days’. Am not trying to cater to only one kind of audience here. Of course people who, like me, like to dabble in anything creative and artistic would of course be my kind of audience. So far i can categorize what i write into the following :
1) Updates from my life
2) My thoughts on certain causes, issues, people, society etc
3) My Art
4) Personal Style
I dont really know who comes here for what. Should i care? Maybe a little? There are people who say they want more posts on fashion. Some others are interested in just words. Then there are those who give their (rather unnecessary) advice as to how i need to stick to just one kind of topic and not make it so random. What’s random to you is NOT for me. This is who i am. So if you are here for just one of the things i mentioned above, then am sorry! In the end all that matters is that we blog for ourselves right?
Also i want to say a BIG thank you to all those regular readers who read every post of mine, the worst and the best, from all the categories and still leave comments and make me smile 🙂
p.s – I can’t resist asking… What do you guys come for? What do you prefer reading?
p.p.s – Oh and ‘Pretty in white’ came first and ‘Barefoot’ second. Oddly, the white dress was the one that i was most eager to wear and post on my blog and the one outfit that i was sure of, but after posting i thought I dint really look that good in it. But it came first so…..
Lesson learnt : Go with your gut feeling! 🙂 Thanks again!
