my week in instagram #59

poetry reading // video game playing // yearbook meeting // concert photographing

This week has been pretty low key as I have been sick (and missed two days of school) + we all got a day off of school. But in between meetings and events, things have still managed to stay busy.

states of being

dress: borrowed // belt/tights: forever 21 // shirt: thrifted // rainboots: gift

Recently I've been thinking a lot about blogging, what I'm doing with it, and where I want Introvert's Introduction to go. At this point in my life I have no desire to make it my full time job (or even a part time job), simply because I don't have the time or the platform to do that. When I was just reading blogs, I figured it was pretty easy to do. Take a couple photos, write some words, have people send you free stuff. Sounds like the life, yeah? Since I actually started blogging, I realized how much work it actually is. And I'm not even one of the "big" blogs with all the advertisements and c/o items and giveaways. I do have great respect for bloggers that do that kind of thing though, because it really is a full time job and a lot of work. For me, I usually spend about an hour and a half from shooting photos to editing and processing them, and then anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour to write a blog post. Then I spend about an hour going through emails, replying to people (which I love!). Then of course there's the planning process, which I haven't been very good about since school started--planning blog posts, brainstorming ideas, etc. It's a lot of work, but I really do love it.

Outfit posts are kind of the easy, fall back thing, but I like doing them and I like sharing them with you. I don't know if I necessarily want them to be my main thing, but it seems that more often than not I just use outfit photos to accompany my thoughts, like with this blog post. One thing I really love sharing are my adventure posts. They're more photo diary entries about my daily adventures, and I just love being able to document them and give them a proper spotlight on the internet. I also really love sharing photography stuff, such as behind the scenes, tutorials, and before and after videos.

What I love is sharing what little knowledge I have with you to help you along the way, whether that be through photography, or being an introvert, or giving you the push to explore your backyard, or even trying a new style. I just want this blog to be a place where people can come to be helped.

So here's a question: what do you want to see more of on Introvert's Introduction? I want to be here to help you in any way that I can, be it through tutorials or outfit posts, or even something new. Life is too short to go through it alone and I want to be there for you guys.

I hope you have a very wonderful day!

shirt: thrifted // pants/belt: target // shoes: forever 21

Cue that spongebob song that I always sing anytime someone mentions being indoors. These photos were taken during one of the long rainy days where there was no break in the clouds for even five minutes. This is the kind of outfit that happens when I'm still sleeping and trying to get dressed in the dark. Somewhat really colorful and kind of crazy, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless.

Also I supposed you could say that this is kind of a sneak peak to my room, and if I ever find a spare moment I'll give you a lovely apartment tour, but for now I'll just let the curiosity foster inside of you.

Hope you have a great day!
