Fancy Friday linkup is on. Read more at the bottom of this post!
First of all I want to thank everyone for linking up last week. Since I was(and still am) on holiday I didn’t have the time to thank everyone personally.
Today my post is a bit different than normal. I want to talkabout blogging today. I write my blog always in my own words, I don’t think about what sounds best or how I present myself at best. I am just me! I want to share the following with you.
When I started blogging, slightly more than a year ago, I did because I wasn’t able to work anymore and I already was searching for something usefull to do. Only cleaning is not going to bright my day! I told you before, I love writing and have a passion for fashion, so this was it. Meanwhile I switched to self hosting and learned more and more. Every time I think, well my blog is finished, there is something new to learn and explore. Blogging gives me a lot of satisfaction and the feeling that I still can contribute something to ….whoever, whatever. What surprised me when I went to self hosting was, I did not transfer my followers from fashionandfoodandotherstuff because I wondered who was going to follow me again, that bloggers with whom you thought you had a nice contact, did not follow me again. Then I noticed that I always responded to them, but not vice versa. What an eye opener. And now I have to say quite honestly that most of them were Dutch bloggers. You would expect that you give each other a little support. But no, Dutch people for that matter always give better criticism than give another blogger too much. It’s a pity.
But what do I actually want to say before this becomes an extremely long story?
Because what surprised me and made me happy, is that the bloggers who faithfully respond are the ones with much populair blogs. I am only just Nancy, wearing my own style( not everyones cup of tea) pictures taken with a simple camera, preferable in my own garden because it costs me too much energy to take pictures at a better location. And my most loyal readers have far more professional blogs, with a huge amount of followers and comments, and then they make the effort and the time to read my blog and also to react. I find that incredible! Thank you, I’m very thankful for that!
Well, time for something more lighthearted!
And now it’s time for the start of the Fancy Friday linkup party. Every Friday you can show yourself and meet other bloggers. Even if you’re not a blogger you can join!
This is how it works:
- Follow your host on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
- Link up your blog below.
- Share the love by visiting other blogs in the linkup party.
- Share a link to Nancy’s Fashion Style on your post or give a little shout out on social media.
My link-up party grows each week a little bit, but…(you know my nickname is the very hungry caterpillar), I’m not satisfied until I have 50 fantastic bloggers joining, so I could really use your support on this. Thank You!
