Maybe you’ve had one of those moments? You know what I’m talking about. The instant when you realize that someone you’ve long admired and look up to thinks you’re pretty cool, too?
Mine came recently when my friend, writing mentor and fellow blogger Carol Cassara reached out to ask if she could do a profile about SisterLadyGirl.
Umm, what? Are you kidding? Of course, I said yes!
Admittedly, when I started my blog a few months ago, I didn’t have much of a plan in place. All I knew was that there never seemed to be a shortage of people who had questions about my hair: “How do you make it curl that way?” “What do you put in it?” “Are there specific products you use?” My goal was to offer content that gave them the answers they wanted in an open and (hopefully) helpful way.
Truthfully, I didn’t think many people would keep reading the blog after a couple months. I mean, how much can you say about hair?! But, the exact opposite happened. The questions I received about my hair began to evolve into questions about my personal style. And, I’ve been diving into my closet ever since, mixing and matching and pulling out some of my “oldies but goodies” to create chic, yet affordable styles that look great on anyone.
I’m glad I didn’t allow my initial anxiety to keep me from writing because the blog eventually caught Carol’s eye and she wrote this absolutely AHH-mazing post about how SisterLadyGirl got its start here: http://carolcassara.com/style-blogs/.
Once you’ve had a chance to check me out, I’d encourage you to visit Carol’s incredibly insightful blog, CarolCassara.com. She offers “daily inspiration for creating our best lives.”
Well, it doesn’t get any better than that, does it? That’s why I follow her and hope you will too.
