ENOUGH WITH "VANILLA" BLOGGING

IMG_4793.jpg

Blogging is so vanilla now a days, and I hate it. I hate that people can't say anything online without other people raking them over the coals for it. What happened to taking risks and saying it like it really is? This doesn't mean bloggers have to be vulgar or over-share, but at the same time, I want something REAL and INTERESTING. It can be about anything--from fashion to pop culture to politics to parenting. ANYTHING, people.  

I want to hear something juicy that reminds me you are human. I want to know about the fight you had with your mother-in-law during thanksgiving. I want to know why you love/hate Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders (insert any politician). Lately, I feel like so many big bloggers are trying to please everyone and its starting to grate me. I miss the days when the big bloggers were nobodies and they would write about whatever they damn well pleased.  

One last thing before I end this rant. As much as I want everyone to write interesting posts, let's all remember to use common sense. I recently read a blog post about a woman who made bread using yeast from her lady parts. Was the article interesting? Hell yeah. Was it something I think she should have shared? Hell no. It was awkward, gross, and attention-grabby. 

Be smart about what you share on the internet because once you share it, there is no going back. But for heaven's sake if you are going to blog then give me something good to read. :) 

ITS BEEN A WHILE..

Well guys, I have to warn you in advance: this post is going to be quite anti-climatic. I haven’t posted in a couple weeks and I hate it. I miss blogging. I miss writing out my thoughts and communicating my life with you guys. I miss reading your blogs and hearing about what you all are up to.

I wish I had a cool reason as to why I have been so absent lately but it’s really nothing exciting. I have been drowning in work and school, plus my personal/family life has required more attention.

A few updates for those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram. First, we got another puppy. She is a Great Dane, like our first dog, but she has a different coat color. We adore her. Second, I went to Georgia last week to see one of my best friends and it was a blast. I’ve only ever been to the Atlanta airport before so this trip was new and fun. I totally fell in love with Georgia. They really know how to do Southern Charm there. (I will do a post on it later.) Finally, I am heading to California in about two weeks to celebrate my friend’s birthday and I can’t wait. The exact location is still undecided but we are thinking either LA or Palm Springs. 

Thank you so much to all of you who read and leave such lovely comments, both here on my blog and on my Instagram. I love you all!
