FashionLayn turns 4 years old today! BLOGIVERSARY!
I started not to post this. I was kinda feeling like who really cares… But… Skip that! I am going to celebrate my blogging career. Blogging is hard and it deserves to be celebrated.
I have been blogging for 4 years straight now. Omg, I can’t believe it! Thank you to all that have supported my journey! Read a post or two, took my pictures, and kept me motivated. Thank you to those that gave me honest hard feedback… tough to hear but I heard you. Y’all are the real MVPs. I continue to blog for you all. You all make a girl feel so important. I finally have a voice… and I can share it! Thank you for handing me the megaphone to speak my peace.
Now when I initially thought about blogging I knew for sure it was going to be easy. I was going to grow my following fast. Sponsorships were doing to falling in my lap. Collaborating was going to breeze Haha silly Alayna…. I was so wrong. Building a platform is not easy! Over the course of my blogging journey, I have never worked so hard in my life! I learned to work smarter not harder. I learned to grow my audience by interacting and networking… something that was never going to come easily to me. I learned that it’s okay to ask for help. Also, I figured out that if you want something then you have to go get it yourself. Closed mouths don’t get fed. I felt that in my soul. FashionLayn definitely thicken up my skin and really made me better person. So I am going to keep pushing forward. Being creative, and finding ways to help my audience!
Consistency is more important than perfection.
So as I sit here at my parent’s home, scheduling my February content, I am thankful to see another year of passion and growth. Cheers to new opportunities, growth, collaborations, and sponsorship!
Thank you so much for being an amazing audience! Commenting and reading through my sometimes chopping post. Sidenote: I am working on it! Lol I appreciate each and every one of you!
