There have been few posts put up lately because I have been doing some self-evaluation and some very much needed blog-evaluation. I've come to notice and take account of the fact that i haven't been being myself on this blog which really defeats the whole purpose of me having a blog. 

See, its all too easy to take pictures from a website, and say your two pieces and be done and depending on who you are, its a bit challenging to come up with something new and interesting to blog about every single day.

Obviously i need to work on the latter teehee.

But this isn't just an issue about me, but about other blogs and blogs-to-be out there. And i know i have no experience with blogging (clearly!) especially being a newbie myself to be telling you what to do. BUT there is a simple fact that needs to be let known. 

YOU ARE YOUR OWN PERSON, so why shouldn't your blog be the same... its own.

I came to this realization while searching the net for useful tips on how to be a better blogger, practically forcing myself to read the common point over and over: be unique in your blog and others will see your uniqueness.
No one wants to see a copy of someone else's blog, why look at yours when theirs stands out so much more?
And yes it may be hard, you may be in the middle of nowhere using that as an excuse to even paraphrase another blogger's post because of "lack of inspiration". I know because i've used it myself many times before.

But really what are you gaining if you're only piggy-backing another blogger? Especially since that blogger probably put more effort into what they are doing than you are. 

Instead of blog-stalking and then posting the same material, find what interests you about the topic and blog that. Keep it light, and interesting and most importantly, keep it YOU.

In the words of the great CoCo Chanel:

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." 

Now take that and run with it!
