It’s official, I’ve had Mollie À La Mode for one year now! I remember thinking about starting it and being so scared. To be honest, I tried starting a blog several times for about five years before thinking about Mollie À La Mode and everything I wanted it to represent. One day all of my ideas just came together.
I’ve learned a lot about blogging since I first started and I honestly still have a lot to learn. First of all, blogging is way harder than it looks. Everyone seems to have an opinion about your blog. Some people are super supportive, some make fun of me in the slightest of ways, some suggest that I do things differently (without me asking for their opinion) and some people just don’t get it, but my blog is what inspires me.
One of the hardest parts about blogging is critiquing yourself and comparing yourself to others. Especially when you’re not the status quo. Most bloggers tend to be a size 4 girl, it’s rare to see someone else like me who’s a size 8/10. I’m still learning to accept my body and I wish I could have more body positive posts, but I’m just not there yet. I hope posting different looks inspires women like me, for now.
While I still have a lot to learn, all of the knowledge I’ve soaked up over the year has been amazing! My style has improved, I’ve learned social media strategies, Photoshop, Lightroom, marketing and more! I’ve improved so much over this year and have so many great memories! After a year of having my blog, I feel like I’m just now starting to understand my brand and all I want to represent. I have started connecting more with the blogging community and have become more comfortable with myself. I can’t wait to see what the next year in my blogging journey holds!
I’m going to share some of my favorite outfits over the year below! Take a look below and tell me which outfit was your favorite!
As always, thank you so much for following along! I have a ton of ideas coming to the blog within the next couple of months so stay tuned!
