For anyone who read my blog on a regular basis, you knew that I stopped blogging for about two months. I thought about maybe doing a post once a week just to keep the little outlet that I made for myself, then I would just brush it off and say "maybe on another day" and as we all know, that day took a long time to come.
I love my blog and the connections I have made through it, it's just the neatest thing in the world being able to read about a complete strangers day to day life until you find yourself coming back every day for another dose of laughter or fashion advice.
What really bothered me away was how much people turned me away because I didn't have enough followers or wouldn't give me advice unless I paid for it. I was taken aback by that, I really have to pay for friendships now? I wasn't asking for a button on their blog or anything like that, I was always simply trying to make a connection, because in the end that's all we have isn't it? I just assumed that everyone out there was like the amazing women that I had sponsored in the past and I was clearly wrong.
Ryan asked me probably three times every week when I was going to start blogging again and I was just brushing him off until he finally told me to just let it go because I didn't need anyones validation. I finally decided to not let those people discourage me from doing what I love, because I have missed seeing the wonderful comments I received on my posts and just a few women definitely do not define all of the absolutely wonderful bloggers out there.
