I have a lot of blogger friends who dress super adorably. Some of them consider themselves fashion bloggers, some don’t. I do some fashion posts, but there is no way I’d call myself a fashion blogger. But, we still like to dress up, sometimes! So, just like I did with the Creative Closet, I’m trying to use my clothes that I already own a lot more creatively. So, I am so glad to be teaming up with Brooke from Silver Lining for How We Wore It.
And here is another secret…my legs aren’t really that tan. But, I have to wear tights or nylons to work…it’s part of our teacher dress code. Well, why couldn’t I have just taken of the tights to do the shoot? Because my pale, sensitive skin was razor burned! Blech!
1) How did you come up with the name to your blog?
I came up with the name for another project, but when I was trying to decide on a title for my bible, I thought it went perfect for what my blog was about: not having it all together. My title, ‘Stepping on Dandelions’, means we all have our good days and bad days. A dandelions is typically linked with wishes. So on bad days you might step on a dandelion instead of making a wish because wishing seems pointless. But on good days, you might step on a dandelion because life is perfect in your eyes, and you don’t want to wish for anything more. It might not make sense to some, but that’s the basis of my blog’s title.
2) What is your blog’s mission or goal?
My goal is for each person to know that they are not alone. I’ve struggled with so many things in my twenty years of existence that very few people know about. I always felt alone, and I don’t want anyone to ever feel the way I did. So with my blog, I hope to give that little bit of faith and encouragement that I never had.
3) Besides blogging, what are some other hobbies of yours?
Definitely American Sign Language! I am currently majoring in it in college, and I love interpreting songs. It’s my favorite hobby besides blogging, of course! Another hobby is writing fiction. My dream is to publish a fiction novel in the future! Hopefully this is one hobby that can turn into a career one day.
4) What is the best thing about blogging for you?
The best thing about blogging is getting a comment saying that something I wrote touched or impacted them in some way. I don’t care about the stats, I just care about my impact. To me, that’s the best thing that can happen concerning my blog: to impact one person for the better.
