This is a brief post to just give you guys a little Sidewalk Ready update. I’ve always wanted this little blog to be as successful and inspiring as possible, and as of late, I’ve really been reflecting on what that means for the future of SWR. I feel as though I’m at a crucial point in development, and I want to move forward intentionally. So what does this mean? Well, let me tell you.
From what I’ve noticed, you guys love to learn. My tutorials are by far the most popular posts in terms of traffic, and I think that’s awesome! It’s so rewarding to have a readership that has a craving for knowledge. My beauty tutorials have received over 51,000 pins and the measly three DIY posts I’ve done have received over 1,000. I mean, seriously? How awesome is that? It’s pretty clear that my readership has spoken and you guys want more information!
Though it may be true that my hair tutorials clearly have the best feedback. I don’t want to turn SWR into a hair blog, and that’s because I truly love doing outfit posts. Even though I am a hair stylist and I obviously enjoy doing hair, I created this blog because of my for my passion for fashion and it’s been such a great outlet for me. The solution I’ve come up with is to integrate more educational information into my outfit posts.
It’s safe to say that I’m not a style expert. I have no formal fashion education. However, I do my best to learn what I can without having a degree to back it up. I want to share some of what I’ve acquired with you, and hope that you will get more from reading Sidewalk Ready than just beautiful pictures of what I’ve chosen to wear. (By the way, can we give Kai a big round of applause for his hard work on my photos?) Each outfit post will now include a tip or a trick that I hope will provide you with more take-home knowledge.Â I want you to know WHY I’ve put a certain outfit together so that you can apply it when deciding what to buy and how to wear it.
That being said, the personal stuff on this blog is going to take a backseat, but that’s not because I don’t want you to know what’s going on in my life. Truth be told, my life is pretty routine and sometimes I just don’t know what to say. I feel like I’m constantly talking about the weather or what I did that day – but c’mon – if I’m bored by what I’m writing, I’m sure you are, too. Don’t worry, though, if something exciting does happen, I’ll be sure to let you know.
Now that I’ve made this decision, I’m especially looking forward to the future of Sidewalk ReadyÂ and hope that you are, too! Are you going to miss hearing about the ins and outs of my life? Don’t worry, you can still keep track of what I’m up to and receive daily weather updates by following me onÂ Twitter and Facebook.Â (Just kidding about the weather updates.) Thank you for all of your support and for reading Sidewalk Ready!
