Clear Sense of Self

Living After Midnite: Clear Sense of Self
If there's one thing I could take away from The IFB Conference its to develop a "Clear Sense of Self" when it comes to your blog. Every single panelist stressed the point of creating a unique brand, a distinctive voice & it's something I'm really struggling with. I may have thought I had a clear view on what I wanted for this blog, but now that I'm sitting down to think about it, I don't...

During one of the panels Leandre Medine, the Man Repeller herself, said something that really struck me, "If someone ask you what your blog is about, you should be able to answer." Honestly when someone has asked me that question in the past I find myself rambling something along the lines of fashion & beauty. How generic can I possibly be?? I want SO much more for this blog.

I'm asking all my readers to bear with me while I refine this blog into everything its meant to be & more! Don't expect too many changes, but be prepared for a more concise vision and a better reflection of myself. I thought these photos Jess snapped of me laughing while we were attempting to take outfit photos during the 2nd day of IFB were a perfect representation of myself. Anyone who knows me knows that I'm always smiling, most of the time laughing and can't for the life of me take a serious photo...

  2. I wasn't able to attend the IFB conference like I had wanted, so thanks for passing along this advice! :) I totally understand the struggle of truly finding your voice/place when it comes to blogging. But I can tell you, as a new reader of your blog, that my first impression of your blog was that it's FUN! So I wouldn't stress too much, just be YOU! :) xo

  11. Beautiful color jacket and dress Jackie! I understand your dilemma. When I first started following you, your blog was about makeup (Mark) and lately you've been doing a lot of outfits and clothes. I think blended together, they both are GREAT. They go hand in hand! You'll get a good balance that works for you.
