If you would have asked me eight years ago if I’d still be blogging, I don’t know what my answer would have been. Seriously, I started blogging just to answer people’s questions, share my views on fashion, and talk about trends. Like, I didn’t have an agenda but I knew I liked writing and I liked clothes. Check out my first post, I had a couple goals, but you know . . . life.
After a while, I got my stride. I noticed that people loved when I talked about celebrity style, Nashville boutiques, and fashion trends. So, I stuck to my lane. Then, enters social media. When I started Fab Glance, Instagram didn’t exist, twitter was a baby, and MySpace was the place to be. When social media really popped off, it changed the face of the blogger. Bloggers became celebrities and readers started liking photos way more than reading. It was hard in these streets for a blogger and I lost faith.

And that’s what the newest version of Fab Glance is going be about. In my 8th year, the year of new beginnings, I won’t be afraid nor will I care if I’m as famous or well known as the other bloggers out there. I’m also spreading my expertise and my brand to other arenas. I recently became a new contributor for The RunwayPlus, I’ve developed a new blogging collaborative – The Blogger Girls, I’m returning to teaching classes at Nashville Community Education (October 2015), and . . . I’m writing my first book!
