This one. This picture. Can someone please explain to me how a picture, with no caption or copy is my most viewed post. What about the posts that take me hours. Or the ones I cry over while I'm writing. But nope, you guys love this picture.
I posted this picture post back on July 16, 2013. I had just graduated law school. I was in the midst of studying for the bar exam and needless to say, probably pretty unhappy in that moment. I wish I had written something. I wish I knew where my mind/heart was when I posted this.
This post was back when I would just post whatever. I wasn't trying to make any sort of money on this page. I didn't care about page-views or likes or comments. I was posting what I was currently feeling. I wasn't posting lists (because people love lists) or to-dos (because their pinable). It was a different era. I knew nothing about affiliate links, sponsored posts or anything.
I was being authentic to me.
Sometimes I get a little carried away with trying to make money and make it as a blogger that I totally lose site of why I even want to do this. Now, don't get me wrong, if I can make it as a blogger, my life dream will come true. I work hard at this blog, but I also want to remain true to what I started.
I love this simple picture (that had over 5000 page-views-- what?!). I love what it says, but I really love what it stands for. I hope you, lovely readers of Everyday Grace, always know that I will always do my best to stay authentic on this space. Sure, you might see a tampon sponsored post on here eventually (a girl can dream)... but I promise it will always be me.
If you want to be happy, be.
Happy Thursday friends, I hope its a great one.
