Despite the fact that I’m often lumped in that category, I’ve never considered myself to be a fashion blogger. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind it one bit! It’s just that I’ve never taken fashion too seriously. My life is not a fashion show. My regular audience consists of a boy, two kitties and a princess puppy. I just enjoy clothing very much.
In an effort to keep myself from staying in pajamas all day (this was my life for awhile), I started photographing my daily outfits. It doesn’t mean I have to get dressed to the nines. It just means I need to actually get dressed. It keeps me from getting into a rut and is highly motivating, since I work from home.
I don’t wake up every day and think, “What outfit will I wear for my blog?” It’s more like, “What is clean and not wrinkled or covered in kitty hair?” and then I go from there. Sometimes I get all dolled up and other days (like most of this busy work week) I just grab what’s comfy and get going. Sometimes I don’t even have a free moment to photograph what I’m wearing because I’m too busy working. I can’t let my blog take up too much of my time – I have to make sure I maintain a full-time work schedule. Postlapsaria is what pays my bills. This blog is just something I enjoy doing.
As I gain more sponsorships, I can afford to devote more time to the blog. But even then, this will always be second to my business. I absolutely adore making clothing and I’m so lucky to make a living doing so. Which brings me to the question that has been on my mind lately: What do you do for a living? Is it what you want to do long-term? If not, what is your dream job?
