Starting to blog is something that has been tucked away in the back of my mind ever since I first started posting videos on YouTube. It's been buzzing over my head like a pesky little fly, and I've successfully swatted it away…until now.
The reasoning behind my hesitation with blogging was simple - I thought I wouldn't have time. In all honesty though, I still probably don't have enough time. In fact, I probably have less time on my hands now than I did before! In one sense, this is a ridiculously irrational decision and I should probably invest in a shovel so I can begin to dig my own grave. However, the "I don't have time" excuse isn't enough to stop me. I've decided that the rewards from blogging will heavily outweigh the two negatives (which in case you were wondering are additional sleep deprivation and stress).
First and foremost, I will be able to share my beauty finds and obsessions with all of you. YouTube has been a wonderful outlet for me, but it's definitely time consuming. With blogging, I will be able to fill in the gaps between videos simply by typing out my current thoughts. This leads me to my second positive - writing. Writing has always been my second love, surpassed only by drawing. I find that as I have grown older, writing has become more of a chore than anything. I blame essays in college for heavily influencing this distaste I have acquired. Twenty-something page analyses on incredibly dry subjects aren't exactly appealing.
Now, for the first time in a long time, I will be able to write purely out of love and not out of necessity. Combining this love of writing with my love of all things beauty makes me as happy as a clam! Plus, it will allow further interaction with all of you and you'll be able to see different facets of my personality that aren't normally conveyed through the camera.
This all sounds fine and dandy, but there is one thing I can't promise. I can't promise that this blog will be solely about makeup, beauty, and fashion 24/7. I have a strong feeling that I will be urged to sneak in little random tidbits about anything and everything - from foods and restaurants I'm currently loving, to my latest nerdy obsessions (at the moment it's Mameshiba plushies! *squeals in joy*).
What I CAN promise is wholehearted effort, and I will do my absolute best to keep this updated. If I fall behind though, do forgive me! Entries will fluctuate, but my intentions will remain steady. Afterall, it's about quality not quantity right? Unless of course it's in reference to food. If something tastes amazing, give me all of it and lots of it! But that's a topic we'll save for another day as this entry is already a novel within itself.
So now that I've noted all disclaimers, I can finally breathe a sigh of relief for a brief moment. I did it. I've written my first blog entry.
Okay, moment of relief over. Now back to reality. Sleepless nights and added stress here I come!
P.S. Please excuse the blasé layout. I am not tech savvy by any means, so this whole "beautifying" process may take a while. Yes, I know. I have been living under a rock! Haha
