I haven’t blogged at all this calendar year. While more recent years have seen my blogging frequency decrease, this year, I have not published a single written blog post. I thought, why not revive that tumblr I left hanging when I stopped documenting my work outfits every day? (I was a stylist for a major designer. It was sort of in my job description.)
My life is more different now than it has ever been, and yet it is more representative of how I am than it has been in a long time. I think the evolution of a blog called “I Like Pretty Things” needs to be considered carefully in a time where Pinterest exists. The focus for me can no longer solely be pictures of cute clothes. Yes, I like pretty things, but “things” is a very broad term. “Things” for me encompasses feelings, thoughts, art, actual physical objects, words, ideas, and dreams, among other things. It sounds cheesy, but that’s how it is right now.
Provided I can stick with this blogging thing for a little while, this is I’ll be periodically exploring some of those aforementioned things in a more in-depth way. Fortunately, I blog because I like the Internets, not because I want to garner page views and monetize, so if no one but me ever sees this, that would be great. (Let’s be real, if I could make a living blogging, I wouldn’t mind, but that’s not my current intent, especially on a tumblr blog.)
