"I don't know what to write" <-- We all know that the struggle is real when we first start writing our blogs. Don't worry, me too. As mentioned in my very first blog's post back in 2011 that I found it quite difficult to come up with the topics for The Equinox Fashion. I tried a wide variety of contents included the runway trend, New York Fashion Week's street style etc. However, I have decided to only focus on a few sections; personal style, event, lifestyle (food review), which I think these work for me. Whenever I met people who want to start writing their blogs, they always ask me "what to write?", or some even say "I have no idea what to write" I cannot 100% say which works or not, but here are some of the contents I constantly love reading.
1. Personal Style
There are a lot of fashion bloggers I love checking out because their styles give me new ideas! I am not really into the beauty, or feminine style fashion blogs because I am more into the street fashion. Don't get me wrong, they are beautiful, but I just love the tomboyish look, which matches with my #ootd more. I love seeing international bloggers, like literally they are giving me that 'vibe' of their own countries. I don't know how to explain, but I can gradually learn their styles, cultures, and the way they take their photos are really different from what I have seen in the UK. One of my favourite bloggers from Japan is Samantha Mariko. The Asian sensation of Tokyo is my everything because I love the big city life. Tokyo is just a city with colors and innovative things. Also, Australia based, Rachel from The Daily Luxe is great too. The tropical vibe, green palm trees make me feel refreshed.
I do love reading the lifestyle blogs, not only the beautiful and minimal photography, but also the discovery of the new things I have never known before. You know that I have been in Manchester based blogger for only a year, therefore there are so many restaurants, bars. etc I need to know. I need to do more exploring about what's good in the UK, so that I can visit myself. I love reading my fellow UK blogger Gabrielle from A Glass of Ice because she often introduces me to the new places I have never been before. Especially, the hotel reviews are one of my favourite!
3. Deep Thought
I love reading people' deep thoughts. In fact, I can learn so much from many bloggers who share their own experiences about life. It's very interesting to know how we are all thinking the same in some topics, yet different at some points. I love reading Rena from Dress with Soul because I can learn something from her. Not only she has a great fashion taste, but her experience in life can teach me something. You know, sometimes, we gotta listen and learn from the other's perspective.
Who wouldn't love food!? It's good and bad at the same time though. It is good because I can find the new recipe to try at home. However, those food bloggers always make me hungry lol I hate myself when reading their blogs at midnight since I feel like I need to go to the fridge and find something to eat. Recently, I have just discovered the BBQ recipe from Jackie, and I will def gonna try it this weekend!
5. Interior Inspo
I love decorating the house/flat/studio/kitchen/bathroom and everything about interior design. The interior inspo always gives me life! I have always dreamt about having my own studio right in the middle of New York City. So, looking at those inspiration images makes me smile, while motivating myself to have the room like that one day. Mostly, I use Pinterest for finding out a broad range of beautiful and modern studio, and I really can't stop pinning!
