I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
May your holiday season sparkle and shine.
May all your wishes come true and may you feel this happiness all year round.
I haven't been blogging much this past year because I wanted to reflect on what I really wanted to do with blogging! When I first started this blog I wanted to just show you my outfits, write about entertainment and fashion news, give my honest opinion about everything and last but not least I was so very EXCITED. But somehow this didn't give me the satisfaction that I needed to continue blogging. I was even seeing progress in my subscribers and readers but it just wasn't enough. After my first real visit to Paris I realized that The Style HQ wasn't what I wanted to keep doing. I wanted more out of my blog. So I stopped, just like that, I just stopped.
My plan is to focus on creating a lifestyle blog that creates value for the reader, not just write articles about the same old oufitposts with many promotional items. I'm tired of seeing the exact same posts but with different products (ex. "I love this item, you can get it at a discount on their website) all the freaking time. I know that as a blogger (I did this myself) you can easily get sucked in this web of promotion for products. What I also know, is that I won't make the same mistakes on my new blog. On a sidenote, if you're a blogger that loves making these sort of articles, don't mind me, keep on doing what you love. That's also why I had to stop and actually start doing what I love.
I'm making my first rough draft on this lifestyle blog, if you have any ideas or miss something yourself as a blogger or an avid reader of blogs, let me know in a comment below and I'll definitely try to incorporate it into the lifestyle blog I'm creating.
Thank you for reading!
