Why I Started Blogging?

Today's post is definitely one of the most personal so far and it's one that has been brewing for a while, so I thought it was about time I shared it. It is a question that I probably should have answered a while back so without further adieu the reason behind the inception of the blog was that I wanted to change up my career and delve more into the fashion world. I had loads of experience in advertising / marketing / branding but very little with fashion or beauty brands. I also thought I wanted to work in magazines whether that was in a digital capacity or the more traditional area and I had no business applying for jobs without a portfolio of some kind, hence Blunt Blonde Blog was born.
Furthermore, I love creating brands and I have done this in my day job so I thought why wouldn't I do it for myself. For some people I was the last person they expected to do this, some were surprised and not very supportive and others were super supportive so you have to take the good with the bad. Put it this way I don't get a lot of hate mail or negative comments but I know people pass comments and everyone has the right to their opinion. Truth be told I was a bit of a tomboy when I was younger and really only got into clothes when I went to college so I was a bit of a late bloomer so I get why they were surprised.


It is interesting to see how my style has evolved and how I have changed since I started this over two years ago. I look back on some of the posts and I am like what on earth am I wearing but it is also a way to see how far I have come and what I have done to get me here. It is a trip down memory lane and reminds me of things I may have otherwise forgotten about.

I know I have placed myself in the firing line by putting myself out there so I don't ALWAYS take it to heart but I am human obviously so sometimes it does get to me but I wouldn't be normal if it didn't. At the end of the day I just have to brush it all off and do MY thing. My advice for blogging is that don't enter into it if you are sensitive, you need to be happy in yourself and also have a thick skin. Just living in the world opens you up to criticism so being subject to criticism or judgement is not only for bloggers or people who put themselves out there it is for each and every person. My advice is you cant expect everything to be rosie in the garden so just roll with the punches and enjoy the ride.


Blogging is not for everyone but I have to say I am enjoying it, it has opened me up to new experiences, new people and put me out of my comfort zone. I was always a confident person but this was a daunting experience and I am glad I put myself through it. When I wasn't 100% feeling myself last year I thought about putting a stop to it all but I persisted with it and I am really happy that I did. I am loving the posts so far this year and there is some exciting collaborations on the horizon.
Thank you to all my readers, the ones who have been with me since the beginning and also to my new readers, I am loving what I am doing and hope you do too. Also thank you to my core group of friends, you know who you are,my family and C for understanding and for the occasional slag just to make sure I stay grounded! Although I don't think I need it as I know what is important in life and yes I love shiny new bags and clothes but I know the value of friendship and family and a good laugh and that will never change.

Love Keva x

  2. I didn't start creating content understanding it would cause a complete-time activity. In truth, I did not even understand it can be a full-time job, particularly because my income were so negative, £70 a month type of bad lol. but I failed to care because I failed to want to make money from it, I simply cherished doing it. once I first started out i was sad, unfulfilled & very very mentally unwell - creating was a way for me to close off my poor mind and it additionally became an outlet. It nevertheless is! blog comments services
