So there have been quite a few changes around Clothed Much lately if you've noticed.. If not that's cool. Carry on! I've added Kari and Melissa to the blog; I've added more blog crushes; I've added more guest bloggers; I've had posts up M-F two times a day. There are two reasons behind these recent changes that kind of go together so maybe it's just one reason...
I'm burnt out, not from the blog but from everything. It's mostly due to stress. I need a vacation!!! So I've been trying to step away from the blog without physically stepping away from the blog. I've just been bringing more and more people into it, which you guys didn't seem to like. And it makes me sad. I know I'm not going to make my husband take pictures of my outfits forever and that I will probably stop one day (Nooo!!!!) but I also didn't want to just stop blogging forever and wanted to transform Clothed Much into more of a modest fashion community blog than a blog about MEMEME. (Hello, run-on!) In order to achieve this modest fashion community blog, I need more authors than one; otherwise it's not a community! My plan is to have modest fashion bloggers contributing to the site from one girl to another -- no experts, no professional style tips, but what we've all learned through trial-and-error and bring it all to the table. It's not going to turn into a magazine but where we can talk to each other about clothes, style, our different ideas of modesty and how we incorporate it and apply it in our lives.
This may mean less of me on CM. I started this blog when I didn't have a sense of style and now two years later, I've come to the point where I'm happy with my style and fashion sense. I've come such a long way and I don't think I need this blog any more and I think others would benefit from it more than me at this point. If you'd like to join me (and these nameless future authors) on this journey, I'd love to have you stick around and add in your two cents. If it's not of interest to you, I'm sorry to see you go! This is something I've been thinking about and working towards for a while now so it's not out of impulse or boredom on my part.
If you guys have any thoughts or suggestions on this, I'd love to read them.
