Atlanta has definitely been good to us so far. Closer to family, friends, and enjoying life and all that God has for us. Every weekend has been hubby and I exploring the city and one weekend I finally found the colorful walls I’ve been searching for since I moved here. Of course I had to get a photoshoot there with this super cute dress because I knew those walls would be the perfect backdrop. With my usual photographer (hubby) being busy at work I found the sweetest photographer via Instagram and after looking at her work I knew it’d be perfect for this shoot. Since moving here, that has been one big thing I didn’t like about “starting over”. Having to find the perfect group of people to help move my blog forward as I had in place in Dallas.

Meeting new people in a new city especially after having your own network created in your old city is hard. Some people aren’t as open as you’d expect and some are the nicest and kindest people ever. In the blogging world, people tend to get a little super hostile when we’re literally all doing the exact same thing and in the exact industry. Some “cliques” are already “established” and for some reason they are super standoffish and offended when a new person comes around. You have to have thick skin in this industry because if you let things like that get to you then you definitely aren’t built for whats to come. What I always tell people who experience these kind of problems is you have to remember why you started. You didn’t start your blog to impress anyone, you didn’t start your blog to change who you are for anyone, you started because it’s something you love and that’s every reason to keep going. Always remember when you have God on your side you’re never alone. Also remember those same people who think they’re better than you or playing the “rude” card now will be the same people when things are going 1,000 times the rate you started who are trying to slide in and be your “friend”. In the blogging community, there should never be competition, what are we competing for?  I’m all about community and blessed to have met some great people throughout my journey. But even with all of that, even if you’re not clicked off with a dozen bloggers as long as you’re making a difference and believing in your own brand that’s all that really matters. Keep it moving right along and make every day count. Don’t forget to take a step back and relax sometimes because blogging should never consume your entire life. Take a step back from the “blogging life” and let your hair down with your family and friends.

And ALWAYS remember you got this! xo

    Love this article! I struggle in general with blogging, I tend to talk myself out of posting an idea I have, somehow thinking it’s not worthy enough. I may have had my breakthrough moment last night, new logo, new post ideas! Yay me!
    But I to find the blogging world to be very clickish. I really believe it stems from fear. Fear that this newbie blogger is going to “steal” my ideas that I worked so hard for and will be more successful than I currently am. XOXO

    This is so true! Why playing the rude card?
    Why having that “clique” vibe? I can tell you even more : in France its even a CLAN and they are just a few, but a few keeping their “doors” fermly closed to anyone working on their own blog. Sad… But we will all continue and never let anyone outshine us:)
    Great pic and great words, happy to meet you 😉 xo Liza
