Today is FRIDAY. I swear I love being able to
say type that! If I could describe my mood in a picture this would be the oneBritt in her happy place; Marthas Vineyard. Not much longer till we can relive this!
Speaking of Britt today is our 52 Week Blog Challenge Day
#32 My Inspiration to Blog
Well, way back in my blogging archives I posted a BEHIND THE SCENES OF SITBACKANDJUSTLIVE where I talked more in depth about why, how, tips&tricks and more. So today I’ll be giving a little more insight on
Behind the Scenes of SITBACKANDJUSTLIVE
We read her blog like it’s the morning paper. And more often then not we’re going back and forth via text about how much we love her, her life, her family; Shay Shull is ultimate goals. So from Britt to Shay, I felt inspired.
LONG STORY SHORT
Upon moving to Boston, I didn’t know many people so half the time I found myself going to Starbucks over at Assembly Row and surfing the web. Inevitably through boredom and a passion to write- I started looking up blogging sites and came across Word Press.
I created everything, had a very basic layout, zero pictures, zero intentions of anything other than the fact that I just wanted to write.
BUT WRITE ABOUT WHAT?
So for the longest time I was just writing miscellaneous things.
However, the more acquainted I got with Boston and the more friends I made through my first job in the city; I started writing about my adventures and the people I’d meet. I remember specifically titling them “The Places You Go and the People You Meet” It’s nuts the array of personalities you come across in the city or life in general. Just a few examples of whom I’ve written about: “My neighbor, Boss Lady Entrepreneur, Spoiled at 30, The Diplomat, The Lawyer, The Conceited Smarty Pants, The Wall-Street Wannabe, A Korean…” I also wrote one for each of my roommates which I will keep those titles anonymous.
But, there was one thing, everything was PRIVATE. I didn’t go live with any of it.
I wanted a way to document my life better and I adored Shay Shull’s blog so much….so then, eventually I put two and two together: MAKE A LIFESTYLE BLOG
So I went through and deleted all my old private entries, revamped my blog to make it girly, pretty, and suiting to me. Britt happened to take this amazing photo of me at Martha’s Vineyard [fun fact: same day as the photo I took of Britt above 😉 ]And I thought it perfectly screamed, Sit Back And Just Live
On September 20, 2016 I wrote my very first post and went LIVE with it.
And now here we are almost a year later, May 12, 2017 Behind the Scene of SITBACKANDJUSTLIVE pt 2.
