Whats the main goal of your site?
I talk a little about it yesterday, but the main goal of my site is to share a bit of my life.
When I started blogging I was a kid, and blogging wasn't a big deal at that time, and I did it anonymously, and I didn't think so much of it. I just loved to shared my thought and life, and I got a few good friends from it, and I loved every moment of it. At some point, I stop, because life happens, and I end up always coming back but never be so active as when I was a kid. I would often follow other bloggers, special as I got older, but as I got older, I started getting frustrated cause I never could find people that look like me, that was either handicap or black or both.
I still have trouble finding people that I can relate too, instead, I saw a lot of white people doing fashion blogging, and I thought "Oh, this world is just not for a girl like me.". But as blogging became bigger and bigger I started asking "why isn't it for me?". I didn't really care about people following me, it wasn't the number that keeps me coming back, instead, it was the thought of a little girl, a version of me outside in the world and looking for bloggers to follow.
A girl who is black and handicap and she can't really find anyone with scars that tell her she is beautiful even tho she doesn't look like those people on the media, A little girl that can't find anyone who is in a wheelchair that makes her feel she is normal, she can't really see a girl with an unperfect body with scars and not "model thin" body that has a great taste in fashion and feels beautiful, she doesn't see a normal handicap girl living her life making food, dating guys, study and socialize and having a normal life. What also made me keep coming back, again and again, was also that I always loved to write, I started written diaries at the age 11, and I have always written in them and I loved written my thought and making collages or written poems and I just loved that part of it.
I made my blog for that girl. I wanted that girl to feel seen, to feel heard, cause I still haven't seen that girl in those Magasin, runways, tv, social media, getting attention not because they are handicap but because they just are successful, or beautiful.. because they are great at fashion, makeup, business or whatever. I'm not saying they don't exist, cause I know they existed I have friends that are some them, but having friends and seen it on the media is not the same, and when you are in a world where you already feel small or not seen because of your skin color, adding handicap doesn't make it better. I know they are out there, they are just hard to find, and I wanna be a voice to make them feel more seen, more hear more inclusive.
So the main goal with my blog is to share my life, even if it is bad or doesn't fit the "normal", because I think we are a point in life where everyone who once felt invisible should feel seen and hear. My main goal is to share my life and my thought, and advice on mental health and if I in the process can make one person feel more seen, and heard and less alone, that is just a bonus.
