Some of you may remember Mon Polkadot Cheri, but chances are you don't. Starting out in 2009 I knew I wanted to write but never had a clear image of my own writing style. I thought I had to write in a certain way or about certain things. My original baby got me to some amazing places such as London Fashion Week, but seeing what fashion was really like upset me and I didn't like the person it was making me either. So I stopped blogging in summer of 2012, but I missed it so much! I kept writing on tumblr and microblogged but I couldn't resist the pull of blogging and had to make a comeback. For me the break was just what I needed, I had time to reevaluate what I wanted to write about and knew that I had to focus on my passion. And that's what you see today.
I would urge any new bloggers to keep going, keep building and keep learning. You will grow on so many levels. I am so glad that I started blogging and I hope in 5 years time that you will feel the same way.
