It's All About You, Narcissism

Truth is, aren't we all a little narcissistic at heart? Why would I post millions of photos of myself here if am not one? Anyone who blogs or tweets wants to be heard. I don't know anyone who wants to fade, be ignored and doesn't want to voice out what they feel, need and think. And each blogger who makes their site public somehow wants to reach out and care about what people might think of them. I for one started this blog simply because am too talkative and felt the need to express myself. I am not a writer. All I want is to talk. I am not a fashion stylist. But I love dressing up. I don't know anything about life, but here I am sharing my thoughts about my life. I've been trying to avoid for this blog to be too personal but it is personal. 

If there's ever been one hidden agenda behind writing this blog, it's beyond clothes and shoes and dresses and accessories. I want this blog to go beyond the line of narcissism and not sound too brag-y, but I believe a good blog exudes a great, healthy dose of self esteem. I don't mean to influence. Am not even sure I am capable of inspiring people. I just want this blog to be a FUN, LOVING space for me and for you. Because in the end, it's all about intentions.

This is a hobby, not a job. If this becomes a burden then Ill stop.

As for me, this is just a diversion from the rest of my life. Blogging is personal, It's all about me, but not really.

Love your outfit, it's really cute !
That suits you so well !

NeuroChiq said...

I admit wholeheartedly! And I don't think there's anything wrong with that either. And yes, blogging is so much more fun when treated as a hobby, an outlet for expression rather than a dragging duty.

PS: Yes, jumpsuit is love, no? =D

Melissa said...

I agree with you denise, blogging is a way to retreat from the real world with pretty pictures and healthy doses of self-esteem =) You look gorgeous, love the hat!

love your post sis. It's true. I admit I am a little vain (ain't we all?) but blogging is also a nice avenue of sharing the wonders of the world through different eyes. When I write each entry I'm excited not to make yabang my style or purchases but to hopefully inspire others and help them look for cheaper alternatives, make their lives easier (where to go, what to expect, etc,etc), make them aware about some things, and make them love thrifting!:)

btw, you're rocking your pregnancy! You look gorge.:)

cherie said...

love your boots and the scenery is just amazing :)

That's funny, with me it's kinda the other way round: I'm not talkative, I do not feel the need to say my opinion about everything, I'm a lot better at writing than at talking. And this might even be one of the reasons why I started a blog. Besides loving fashion I also love writing (and translating all that stuff to English). I don't believe the world has been waiting for me to show my pictures and share my taste in fashion, but blogging is a lot of fun and lots of other people do it, so why shouldn't I. Now, this was a long comment, and all I've been doing is talking about myself, so I probably am narcisstic.

This is one of my favorite outfits- love the knit top and boots!

Baśka said...

of course we are narcissistic :) but we should control ourselves.
you are so pretty in this outfit my dear!

pinky said...

I love your boots!!! And surely, you do inspire people :))

i agree with you Denise, blogging should be fun and not to think about it as a workload or anything. I blog because I want to release the pressure and stress around me.

My blog was mainly established because I want it to be a journal about my stay in Bangkok but it turned out to be more than that. It is a personal blog that reaches out to a lot of aspiring bloggers.

We have different views and aspects in life but again, we should be REAL and be confident to face any challenge in life.

Take care gorgeous
