As you know, I’m already a professional fashion designer & pattern maker and also a mom. Before starting with this blog, I just wanted to post tips for those who want to become a fashion designer later …. but as I’m a perfectionist, my blogging activity has taken on a lot more importance in my life.
MAKING A BLOG, IS IT THAT EASY?
When you watch the videos of the “professional bloggers” on YouTube, the message you receive is the following: “follow my advice, it’s easy, it’s fast and it pays well!”.
When you complete your research and read classic blogs, often written by the same ones you watched the videos, the message becomes: “Well, at first it takes a lot of time, especially to grope, but after a few unsuccessful attempts and several months of intense efforts, it finally goes on”.
Bloggers are therefore much more honest in their articles than in their videos. When we know how YouTube works, we understand why.
Like many people, I have already tried twice to create a blog on fashion design and pattern making, but without success, because I made the mistakes that everyone does. After all, I’m like you!
So no, making a blog is neither easy nor fast, and success is often not coming.
THEN, WHY MAKE A THIRD BLOG?
Maybe because I’m stubborn.
WHY THIS BLOG HAS MORE CHANCES TO WORK?
Because, this time, I really took into account all the advice I gathered.
- My sons, whom I thank, who patiently watched my videos on a subject that does not interest them at all,
- My husband who is my tireless assistant,
- All the bloggers who send their weekly newsletter and that I read carefully THIS TIME
And especially because this 3rd blog is primarily a VIDEO blog
BE PREPARED TO DISTURB YOUR FAMILY LIFE
Yes, it takes time
Yes, it messes up the life at home (see photos of my living room)
Yes, husband and children should be interested in your project
Yes, free time, outings and restaurants are greatly reduced (but at least the leisure budget is reduced too).
I came to this conclusion:
Making a blog on a subject that you are passionate about is great but be ready for a big change in your family life
