When my students challenged me back in 2014 to post an #OOTD (Outfit of the Day) to my social accounts each day, I never realized it was going to become a whole thing. I mean, it was a joke to me… just something I did to be funny. But then, people started paying attention, asking questions, and encouraging me to keep going… so I did. In time, those silly posts morphed into something more.
Over the last few years, I have started this blog, participated in influencer events, built relationships with local creators, had important conversations with a few major brands (some of whom I have been lucky to represent), and grown in tremendous confidence in photo shoots. I am proud of what I have done, however modest my following may be. I really believe that I can be an influencer of note, if given the opportunity and an audience.
I know that I may never hit the BIG TIME… but I would love to try. Somewhere in the vast internet world, there has to be a place for a relatively ordinary, 40+ fat lady to make a difference and be heard. You can help me… I know brands start listening with larger followings. If you don’t already, please follow me on Instagram and here, on the blog. Encourage your friends to follow me too. I’d really love to hit the 2K mark by the end of the year… and then some. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
