I hope you are all having a productive week!
Lets get right to it, this blog post is a little different than my regular fashion posts.
I want to let you guys in on my reality and the reality of many bloggers I've met.
As you might have noticed from the tittle: Is blogging the new "side hustle?"
I'm here to tell you, that for many bloggers including me, this is true!
For me, blogging began as a hobby. It is a part-time, a way of staying connected with one of my passions. The reality is that I graduated with a bachelor's in social work and I'm currently attending graduate school to obtain my masters. This is the part where you say, (WAIT WHAT)?
Long story short I’ve always had a passion for fashion but growing up in a Hispanic household, I was expected to go to college and follow a “normative” career, which I did.
I enjoy my professional career but deep inside I knew something was missing.
When I began blogging, I realized how fulfilling and satisfying it was to me.
With the progression of social media I felt encouraged to pick up my passion and began my fashion blog a year ago. It has been such a rewarding experience! I’ve been able to meet amazing people, attend fun events and also collaborate with some of my favorite boutiques.
I usually don’t share this part of my story, but I recently learned that I’m not alone and that many bloggers also have a “side hustle.”
I've met bloggers who are law students and science majors! I also have to hand it to all my mommy bloggers!
Having the security of knowing that you don't need to drop everything and risk financial instability to become a blogger, it's the most empowering feeling ever. Because lets face it, blogging is
not financially rewarding until you haven't completely established your brand.
I hope that by being more open with my story, I can encourage other's to follow their true passions even if it’s on the side. Because it's never too late to do what you love.
