Okay, it's no surprise things have been slow around Simply Evani lately. I keep trying to "reinvent" things (aka the constant layout changes) but the real problem is with me.
Online, I worry about the
potentially stupid decision to put my real name in the blog title. It was catchy, kept the field of focus general and I knew it was something that would never change. But it's also made me hyper aware of what I put online. How many Evani's do you know?
That's what I figured.
So, I censor myself constantly. I worry about seeming too "immature" posting about Disneyland all the time. Or being perceived as a "partier" if I post about too much alcohol. Or not writing professional enough to be approached by brands or companies that I wouldn't mind working with (admit it, if you're a blogger, you know you wouldn't mind it...). There's a whole lot of worrying happening over here.
But I was reading back a few posts on my blog lately and the only word I can use to describe them is BLAND. Boring. I lost the little quirks about my blog that let you know who I am. I forgot how to be me. So I promise in the coming weeks, I'm going to think less about what others think of me and just bring back more of the "Evani" in Simply Evani.
To tide you over for the weekend, I've got some amazing blogger friends that HAVE it together. So without further adieu, I'm going to share their posts to hopefully inspire me as well!
I love Alyssa's "Spill it" posts, because it's always fun to get to know your readers.
Setarra's engagement story is so sweet.
Nicole is the BEST at organization, I mean she even blogs on the weekends! Check out her new series BOW: Balance and Organization at Work.
If you love fashion and wine, Lauren is your gal. She's a winery on the weekend gal, like yours truly.
I don't encourage voting for every blogger in the world but Niki, she's the real deal. Vote for her in a Nordstom's contest, she's simply the best!
No one, I repeat no one does a weekly wrap up like Lyss. She is the ultimate connoisseur of blog links.
Alsoooooo just because it can't without being mentioned HOW BOUT THEM BRONCOS?!?
WOO HOO. Also, this weekend, I'm seeing these bad boys...
Okay, so they don't look like that anymore but you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to be screamin like a 13 year old version of myself. Best. Weekend. Ever.
