In my role as a blogger, I’m often wondering what other bloggers think of their own work and image. I would hope that no one makes pre-meditative moves to create an image of oneself that isn’t true. Let me rephrase that…
While, yes, planning your outfits around your blog is a conscience decision, and organizing is certainly part of generating ideas and content for your blog, I can only speak for myself that I’m not putting on airs for the world to see. I think there may be people who do just that… who fake the funk and be what they think everyone wants them to be, wants to see… This lies in fashion choices, general bandwagon jumping in terms of changing their admiration for various designers as fast as Charlie Sheen says winning and casting oneself in a light individually deemed as pleasant, when in reality, the lighting captures all your bad sides… and I’m not talking about your physical appearance.
On the other hand, deeming yourself as a “fashion blogger” does come with pressure to look your best, but the best content you can together and stay true to yourself and your blog. When I attended the IFB Evolving Influence Conference in February, many panelists stressed the importance of thinking of yourself as a brand. At first, I thought the concept was a little weird.
“I’m not selling an image. “
Well, actually, if I’m putting up photos of myself in an attempt to display my own personal style views and looks, then I’m branding or “selling” my perceptual image in a particular way.
