It has been almost 4 years since I started writing The Equinox Fashion. The first year was the experiment period actually because I still had the full-time job (as a content writer for German e-commerce company based in Bangkok, Thailand), so I didn't really take it seriously compared to these two years when I really focus on it, and constantly improve my blog to become better and better. I always ask myself "what do I learn from being a fashion blogger?" To be honest, I think we all ask ourselves the same question what do we really gain from being fashion bloggers right? From Bangkok based to become Manchester fashion blogger, here is what I have learnt (so far).
1. Commitment is the key
Some people write their blogs just for fun, but for me this blogosphere is my life and career. So, what is the commitment in this blogging career? I don't know about you, but it is one of the most crucial elements for me or us bloggers to continually spend time in writing the articles and publish them weekly. If any of you feel like you have to 'force' yourself to write, then blogging may not be the right career path for you. Personally, I used to work as a content writer and online fashion magazine, so it is quite fun for me to plan the contents in each week. The reason why I have to plan everything meticulously is because I want to keep 'our' conversation going. I don't want to disappear from this blogging sphere or write once a month, no not at all. No matter how busy my life is including the MA course I am currently taking, I always find a time to write something.
2. Getting to know others always surprised me
Have any of us ever wondered what other bloggers are like in reality? What do they do? And who they really are? For me, it is very interesting to get to know other bloggers via this blogging platform because life always surprises us in every way. Apart from being the founder of The Equinox Fashion, posting #OOTD on Instagram and studying for my master degree, I used to be an English teacher in Bangkok, Thailand for about 4 years. I taught at the private tutoring school and I really loved it! I taught only high school students because I can't cope with the kids lol. I actually taught SAT, IELTS and some other English courses the student required. Don't even imagine me wearing teacher uniform guys because I always went to school with the street style outfits. Students always asked me why I became the teacher when I didn't look like one, also no one believed I was a teacher and I truly understand lmao. What about you? What do you guys do apart from writing blogs?
3. Who I have become
Some people ask me why I write this blog for, or even myself who ask what do I really learn from it. I think the most important thing is WHO I HAVE BECOME after these four years. Not only I have proved to myself that I can make it, but my style has also improved. From the day I was rejected from the brands when I was a no name blogger to nowadays when I can attend events, London Fashion Week, as well as, other opportunities I can't find anywhere else. Everything has its beginning, and only you who can make it happen.
