Why Keep Blogging? The Art of Comparisons

Happy Monday to you all! It's been very busy being back at work but in some weird way I seem to get more done. Having only a few days to get all the housework done , run errands, and get my son to sports surprisingly makes me a better time manager. Don't get me wrong I love having the summer to work at a different pace, and getting back into routine is hard, but it's also a welcome change. So making time for blogging does get challenging.
In the blogging world it's so hard not to compare yourself to others, with so many people blogging these days, it's easy to see what opportunities everyone is getting and you're not. It's hard not to become discouraged and to find motivation to keep going. So why do I keep blogging you ask? Well because simply, I love it. I have been very lucky to work with some amazing companies, and some that I have worked with for a few years now. As a fashion lover, it's so much fun to pick out some new clothes every month and share photos with you all. 
So how do I break the comparison cycle? Well I try to be happy for others getting opportunities I am not, and I go after ones I want. I always reach out to companies I would like to work with, and give them a great 'pitch' for a blog post. Sometimes I hear back and sometimes I don't, so I wait a few months and then try again!  Polite, persistence is key, as sometimes it takes companies a while to return an email. I always remember why I started blogging in the first place, and that helps me to be more focused on me rather than other bloggers.
