Take My HandFriday, October 02, 2015
I can't pinpoint when, but some time along the four years that I've been blogging, this phenomenon that we love and know as "fashion blogging" has become boring. Boring in that it fails to satiate any sort of creative will without coming accross as superficial and lackluster. After all, when catering to a general audience whose attention span may or may not last no longer than 6 seconds (as demonstrated by Vine), how else can we feasibly capture people's imaginations with simple words and photos? Sure, shock value works great, but at the end of the day, when it comes to fashion blogging, all we really have at our disposal are our pretentiously overworked personalities and the too-good-to-be-true lives we pretend to live. And I'm not saying that I refuse to take part of this farce (after all, I'm very much so at the heart of it), but sometimes it just makes me wonder how I could possibly refine blogging into something less perfect, more raw, and just, me. All I really want to do is make cool shit.
