Hey guys and welcome back to another post! I decided to share why I started blogging. Originally, I was going to post details of a bold look of the day, but with everyone thing going on with America right now, I decided we need to spread a little inspiration and motivate. I love reading these types of post because it’s not only relatable sometimes, but it can also be the encouragement or inspiration someone may have been waiting for to chase their dreams.
So, flashback to 2013 I was in my senior year of highschool and I absolutely loved Youtube. One of my favorite Youtubers then was DulceCandy and she’s seriously still my favorite. Her channel was all about makeup, fashion and she is seriously so down to earth. Her videos were so personable and it felt like you were having a girls night. It inspired me to start a Youtube Channel which everyone thought I was insane for doing, but despite that, I still did it and loved it. After high school I ended up falling off of Youtube and deleted my Youtube Channel. I thought it was a phase and although it was I learned about Blogging.
Now, the funny thing is I hate reading and writing in school, but I guess I was really good at it. I realized how creative I was and decided to give blogging a try. I loved that you didn’t have to film and edit and wait for the upload. I loved that blogging requires you to just write and post. I began officially blogging in 2016. I got married, had a baby and my purpose for my blog was to inspire everyone. I wanted to let other mamas know that you can still look and feel great even after having kids. Overtime, my blog changed a bit. I started posting traveling content, lifestyle and beauty and realized my blog wasn’t based on only beauty anymore. It’s more on the lifestyle end. So, I decided to get rid of that blog all together and begin this one.
In 2020 I launched my blog “Theoneandonlyaleeya” and I named it that because I wanted to keep it general. This way I’m able to switch up my content to what I want to post. I was inspired to start this blog as many bloggers reasons were. The most important one would be to escape everyday life and for my blog to give off a vibe that you’re talking to your best friend. I think it’s important for everyone to have someone to just be able to talk to without being judged and that’s what I’m here for. To be able to share a bit of my life: Beauty, Lifestyle, Inspire, Trends and most importantly connect with you guys.
