I often get emails and questions from people about starting a blog. Most of the time the questions are the same; ‘How did you start’ and ‘Don’t you feel uncomfortable to share everything, because I am afraid about peoples reactions’. Well, there is just one answer to that. If you want to do something such as blogging or writing, just do it. We human all have fears, it’s in our nature. But it’s also in our nature to fight against them. The strange thing is, we fight against fear of heights or spiders, but when it comes to getting out of our comfort zone, we often get shy and fearful – while this is actually the most beautiful thing to do.
You know that I come from a place where they don’t give about fashion at all. For me this was the motivation to start a blog, because I wanted to share my passion. You have no idea how many strange looks I’ve got while shooting some outfit photos and putting them on the internet. Seriously, people were making fun of me. But because I enjoyed so much what I did I kept going. I kept on making these photos and sharing them with you, which became almost a full time job now.
What I actually wanted to say here is that even I had fears. Fears of failing – which I still have – and fear of what other people will think about me. But in the end, this was never a reason for me to stop following my dreams and work with my passion. Actually, I turned these fears into success because since 2011 I am working hard to make Floortjeloves one of the best fashion blogs on the web. So no matter if it’s about blogging, your career, sport, passion or love; let your fear never ever overrule you. Be the boss of it and when you achieved that, you can turn any study, hobby or passion into success.
