It has been a while since I last blogged. To be quite honest, I’ve been a little confused about a lot of things. Don’t want to bore you guys with the details but let me attempt to explain just a little bit because I feel like I owe you guys an explanation.
For a while now I’ve been struggling with the idea of blogging. I am assuming we are all friends here (even though we are in the beginning stage of our relationship and we had somewhat broken up and you have all forgotten about me) but I think I can relax and open up to you guys. I have this dream of starting many businesses ranging from running the family construction company along with my siblings, to being a business mogul, to having my own charity organization (by the grace of Allah). The thing that kept troubling me was that maybe if I kept posting outfit pictures and what not, then in the future it might interfere with my plans. Please forgive me because I’m confused and I don’t even know what I mean by ‘interfere’, but bear with me while I try to explain. Being from Africa, specifically a Guinean background, it is definitely a man’s world…I won’t get into all of those details but basically for a women to blog about things like style, health etc. is not very understood in my culture; I would even go as far as to say that some might see it as a stupid and pointless thing to do. So I was scared that maybe blogging is just a waste of time if the people that I really wanted to bring awareness to aren’t the slightest bit interested. But after talking to a few of my friends and family members, I have found the solution to my dilemma. Blogging makes me happy. Helping you makes me happy and hopefully reading my posts makes you happy too so, I will continue blogging BUT I will change the focus of my blog posts. From now on, I want to blog in the direction of my goals. I know it might sound silly because you might say that it is what I was supposed to do from the beginning but obviously you have to understand that 99% of bloggers have no clue what they are doing at the beginning. I love fashion as much as I love construction. Actually I decided to study civil engineering back when I was just 10 years old because I am a strong believer that infrastructure leads to development which in turn will really help my country. Don’t laugh just think about it. But we will keep that topic for another time.
Okay back to what I was saying: I want to bring together three fields that can prove to be quite opposed [engineering, fashion and business]. I love helping and helping I shall continue doing in every way possible from road and house construction to helping someone regain their confidence through finding their own personal style to just inspiring through my writing. Anything goes lol.
So from now on, you can think of my blog as my portfolio or my resume. I want it to reflect my views, All of it. Well maybe not all because trust me you guys are not ready for that lol. But seriously though, I will be posting creative inspirational posts in an attempt to engage you. My ultimate goal is for you to find yourself somewhere in my posts. Or maybe even find inspirations, answers, solutions that you can really apply to your life. But for this all to work I want you all to do one thing for me: please engage with me. All relationships are two-way streets and this one is no different. For it to work you have to meet me halfway. I promise I don’t bite. So just let me know if you like my plan and what you would suggest I incorporate in my future blog posts.
