How Blogging Improved My Life And Wardrobe

It is amazing how blogging improved my life and wardrobe. Blogging is a lot of fun no doubt, but requires a lot of effort and dedication. One of my favourite things about blogging is that I get to share different aspects of my life, personal style, tips and give advice based on my experiences. Since started blogging 7 months ago, I have learnt a lot of things and met some wonderful people along the journey. Interacted with experienced Bloggers who imparted their expertise where possible.

My Passion

My passion for photography grew a whole lot. Anyone who knows me personally know that I am usually always ready to take a picture. I went as far as purchasing my own DSLR camera because I saw the importance of having one. Being able to take beautiful high quality pictures for my blog motivated me to go the extra mile.

When it comes to my social life I go out more, constantly looking for great locations and exploring places of interest for inspiration that I can share with my readers. This is also an opportunity for me to practice photography.

Being the person behind the blog means having to take and go through sometimes a dozen photographs before finding the perfect one. For building a brand and establishing an Instagram aesthetic, requires some basic editing skills. As a self-taught person I was able to teach myself the basics on Photoshop. There are photo editing applications that I use which does not require any editing or photography skills. Thank God for them! Countless hours are spent on a daily basis researching and brain-storming topics and writing content.

Maintaining a blog journal and staying organized is crucial to its success. I’ve found myself having to write a couple of posts in advance for when I hit writer’s block as well as scheduling posts to my social media platforms. All of which takes time and something I wish I knew before I got into blogging.

Let’s talk about how blogging improved my wardrobe

Having a fashion blog has kept me in the know about latest trends. Reading other fashion blogs and magazines have been a major help and source of inspiration. Knowing what key statements pieces to buy that can mix and match with multiple outfits is a skill-set not everyone may possess but a key one. Luckily this is something that can be learnt over time and with experience.

Whenever I am out shopping I keep my blog in mind. Most times I would purchase items that can be used on different occasions. Last but not least, becoming a model “overnight” somewhat made me more conscious of my size and how I look when dressed. Therefore I try to eat healthier and workout as much as I can.

Special thanks to my Photographer Bruno who continues to be a big help with my modelling. Follow him on Facebook and please show some love.

Are you a Blogger? If so, how has it impacted your life? Let me know down below.

    I truly relate to you and Caitlin below in the comments. It was really hard and scary to enter this world, but since having done this almost a year ago, my eyes have been opened even more, I have learned so much about myself (my wants, likes, etc) and to top it off have made lots of friends that I’m learning from and growing with. This is a great article. Thanks for sharing.

    • Good to know that it has changed your life so positively and thank you for your feedback πŸ˜‰

  • Caitlin

    Blogging has helped me become a better writer and photographer for sure! It’s also helped me develop tougher skin and figure out where I truly stand on things.

    • Awesome Caitlin! Tough skin I can surely relate to that πŸ™‚

  • Yes!! Blogging totally improved my life too! I never knew how much I would fall in love with photography!

    • That’s great Elizabeth! Keep it up!

  • Natasha Lynn Brown

    Great post! Blogging really is a lot of fun and work! I love that blogging makes you shop with thought- “how will I wear this, what do I have to go with it…”

    • Thank you Natasha and yes it definitely changes things for the better πŸ™‚

  • Thank you Nikki. Good to hear that too πŸ˜‰

  • April Kitchens

    Great post. Blogging has improved my wardrobe also. I’m more conscious of what I buy and what I wear when I leave the house. I’m always thinking of a potential picture.

    • HAHAH me too April. Everything I buy now I also think about how it can be used for my blog. πŸ˜€

  • This is soo true, which is why in general I avoid fashion blogs lol. Also I’m not on Instagram right now so I avoid the lure of living an “insta-worthy” life. For me blogging is t-shirts and shorts (maybe), just in the trenches of a new blog. =) Can’t wait to get back to that IG life though.

    • Fashion blogging can turn out to be quite expensive lol. But once something works for you then I would highly recommend you stick to it. Hope you get back on soon πŸ™‚

  • Cassie Hamilton

    Aww lovely post!!! A good read β™‘

  • Gina Marie

    Reading fashion blogs literally made me throw away all the old clothing I was hanging on too. I’m strictly all about quality pieces now.

    • Yasssss Gina. I too had to get rid of my old clothes that nobody would probably ever want to see lol. Totally worth it though πŸ˜‰

  • TeeShares

    Great one Shevy! I read your posts a lot. Love the style, pics etc. Keep it up girl!

    • Awww thanks so much Tee. This means a lot to me. I appreciate it πŸ™‚

  • Great post! Blogging has definitely improved my cooking skills. It inspired me to write about everything I make and share it as much as I can. Slowly but surely my wardrobe is also getting a facelift.

    • That’s awesome Shannon! And I can relate to that wardrobe upgrade πŸ˜€

  • Blogging really changes everything! I totally identify with seeking out new places and trying new things because of my blog. They are all things I would have loved to do in the first place, but having a blog really forces me to get out there and live my life right now! And you know, THINK about how I look before I go out into the world, haha! You look fantastic in that dress!

    • Yes Beth. Having a blog forces you to get out of your comfort zone. lol. Thanks for your feedback!

  • Gillian Kent

    Sounds like you are having fun. The DSLR camera is a good choice. The quality of the photos is so much better and one can be so much more artful with the photos.

    • Yes I am having fun. Oh yes surely it produces better quality photos. πŸ™‚

  • Bailey

    That yellow looks smashing on you!

  • Jessica

    I am just so happy I ran across this.. Today is my first day into the blogging world and my hopes are to accomplish exactly what you have. I am wanting to share any and everything I can to help others all while improving me. I look forward to reading more of your post thank you for sharing!

    • Thank you Jessica. I believe you can do exactly that! Just set realistic goals and do what you can. The main thing is being consistent. Congrats on launching your blog and good luck to the future!

  • Casey

    I can TOTALLY relate to getting WAY more into photography after I started blogging. I began my blog 4 years ago and the photos I used to take can make my cringe…but they also remind me how much I’ve grown, not only in skill but in passion!

    • lol lol yes its great to be reminded how we started and see the difference with where we are now. Congrats on 4 years!

  • Shaunte Booker

    I was already pretty into fashion, but not photography. I bought a dslr camera as well girl and haven’t looked back since. I really love taking pics and using that as another way to create. I have a husband who is a web designer and he taught me how to use photoshop and I’m totally addicted to it. These are some great pieces of advice for new and old bloggers alike. You have kind of refreshed some of what I was doing! Thanks for sharing your experience!

    • You’re welcome Shaunte! Thanks a lot for sharing your experience as well πŸ™‚

  • Yag Dalal

    This is so true! I always laugh when people say that bloggers don’t live in the moment and are always obsessed with their content rather that experiencing things. That is so NOT true, I have never enjoyed life and travel better than when I started blogging. I would say it helped me be a better version of my self <3

    • I couldn’t agree with you more πŸ˜€ It surely did open up horizons in all aspects <3 Thanks for sharing!
