It has taken me far longer than I’d like to admit to launch Lo Life Lately- largely because I’m a procrastinating perfectionist. As opposed to typing up my first article and hitting POST, I’ve spent countless hours researching the best way to do, well, everything.
While it was empowering to arm myself with knowledge and inspiration, it also paralyzed me with fear. How could my blog live up to the bar I had set? Are my writing skills up to par? Is the market oversaturated? Does it make sense to start blog when I’m on an extreme budget? How can I afford to stay on trend? Will my friends think I’m vain for posting a bunch of photos of myself? And the list goes on…
At the end of the day, I realized that none of it really matters. Realistically, there are probably not that many people reading this, and the people who are, likely, already know and love me. (Hi mom :) So fuck it. (Sorry mom :) It’s not going to be perfect, but it’s a start.
