Happy Monday, guys! (although to me it feels like Sunday). Anyway, I’ve been thinking lately about how far I’ve come with my blogging. I remember a few years ago, actually like 7, when I started an Interior Styling blog called Revamped By Me. The blog focused mainly on DIY projects, usually centered around paint since my husband and I own a painting company and I had somewhat of a background in interior styling. Unfortunately, that blog was short lived since I’m a mom of four, business owner, etc and it was a challenge to actually complete a damn project! But of course, getting dressed isn’t. Fashion’s always been my first love and design my second, so I thought why not post about all the things I love with my main focus being fashion and that’s when Live By Ronni was born … and then it wasn’t. This was around 4 years ago and as soon as I bought the website I instantly felt embarrassed. I feared I was going to be judged even though anyone who knows me wouldn’t be surprised by it. Never the less I gave in to my fears and put it on hold for like a whole year 😦 However, throughout that time the ambition never went away. I was always trying to find someone to help me build a website and teach me how to edit photos, eventually I said fuck it, what am I really waiting for? and I figured it out myself! I realized that I was wasting time, not because I needed someone to “teach” me how to do things but because I was worried of what “everyone” would say or think of me. Even up until I moved to San Diego I worried each time I took photos that I would run into someone I know and they would think I was too old, vain, or conceded. I started figuring out quickly that I simply don’t care what others think, I can’t let my insecurities get the best of me, this journey was for me. ❤

Now, don’t get me wrong, I know those people are out there. The one’s I never hear from but I’m sure are reading every post, in some way judging how or what I’m writing and that’s ok, also, none of my business. I guess all I want is to enjoy something that’s truly my own and to inspire others to follow their dreams no matter what others think! Live By Ronni is something from my creative mind and thus far has been an absolute pleasure to work on. ❤
