That's when I came up with Little Fierce Blog.
Little Fierce Blog was inspired by Shakespeare's quote, "though she be but little, she is fierce." My entire life I have been a smaller person, but that hasn't limited my ability to be competitive and to seek the highest level of quality when it comes to my life. I also wanted that to reflect in my blog posts. I'm passionate about my life, what I read, what I make, and what I contribute to society. I also don't think I've ever really considered myself a lifestyle blogger. What does that even mean?
Earlier this year, I wrote a controversial post (actually a couple) that criticized the quality of blogs out there. It covered that larger blogs with thousands of followers were lacking in true content quality and I found the blogging community becoming more commercialized and less authentic. My blogging friend Maria suggested that I stop following those blogs. Honestly I was flummoxed. Stop following these blogs? If I did that then I probably wouldn't be following any.
However that was the best advice I had received. I learned a lot about myself in that transition. The blogs that I had been following were not a good fit. Instead I found mom blogs, crafters, people inspired by faith, and people who were just funny. I broadened my horizons and found some true gems. I also met so many amazing bloggers or substitute bloggers through Instagram. It also showed me that I didn't want to do advertising on my blog and I also didn't want to pressure myself into blogging every day or that might lessen the quality of the posts.
So here is Little Fierce Blog in all of its glory. I'm really proud of it and I am pumped for 2014. Have a bright and sparkly new year :)
