Life Update, Chit-Chat and What to Expect in October
It’s been a while since I’ve done an update and I wanted to share what’s been going on in my life, and what to expect with Style by Julianne going forward!
I created this blog as a portfolio of my fashion, and kept is secret for a long time. I am naturally introverted and have some anxiety which led me to feel that people would judge me or think I was weird for posting pictures of my outfits on a website that I created. Instagram helped me to come out of my shell, my blog began to evolve as I grew a following and I found a community of fellow bloggers and creatives on social media. I quickly realized there were so many others like me! Introverted, creative, maybe a little awkward in real-life but wanting to create and share their passion with other like-minded people. Blogging became the perfect outlet for me to get to know new friends and ultimately share my hobbies and passions with others! I am honing my entrepreneurial skills and learning so much about myself in the process. With much still to learn in this ever-changing industry, I look forward to what the future brings!
Style by Julianne as a brand is constantly evolving, I try my best to keep up with trends and fashion, but my main focus is to create meaningful content for the community of people who have grown to keep up with my journey. In September I decided to redirect my energy from Instagram to my physical blog page. Like we’ve seen with other popular social media channels (*cough* MySpace *cough*), one day Instagram will be gone. And with it, all of the content that I spent hours editing, researching hashtags, engaging on, scrolling though. Poof! The great thing about having my own website is that I own this website, I pay for it, it isn’t going anywhere until I make it go. I want to make my blog the best it can be for my readers (you) and as a creative outlet for me!
With all that being said, in October expect to see more lifestyle content, and local themed posts (Portland people, where you at?!). I want to get more personal in my posts, I enjoy writing and I haven’t done enough of it on here. Expect to see more topics that you can relate to on a deeper level vs. just outfit details, although I’ll still share a ton of fashion! I also plan to share blogging tips as this is a very common topic of conversation in the Insta DM’s. I am by no means an expert blogger but I am always happy to share tips for any topic that gets enough requests! I find it’s much easier to share in a blog post than reply to each individual message. Expect to see new posts every Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 8AM. I will communicate via Instagram if anything changes but I’m really challenging myself to stay on top of this schedule. If you have any blog requests of topics you’d like to see comment them, DM them, Email them to me!
Ok now for a little life update, Dustin, Stella and I are moving! Surprise! We’ll be moving back to Portland at the end of this month and we could not be more excited. It took us moving out of the city to realize that we are not suburban living people, we love the city! The energy, the convenience, the walkability, there are so many things we enjoy about living downtown. We didn’t think we’d be able to find an apartment with the space we needed for a price we could afford but we got super lucky and snagged a townhouse at a great deal! If you want to see moving blogs/vlogs comment below.
Whew, if you got through that whole blog, you are AWESOME, and your support is what keeps me going! Thank you for taking the time to read, Hope you all have a fantastic week!
