I’ve been having this blog for a while, yet I have never actually talked about why I started blogging / what plans do I have regarding it … until now. That’s why today I am going to share with you the history behind FBX.
When I first thought about having a blog I was sixteen. I was a dreamy teen who was spending her days and nights reading Kristina Bazan’s and Chiara Ferragni’s blogs (it may sound like a cliche, but they are my all time favs). This world they were exploring looked so attractive, so magical… the way they played with clothes, with words, how they were sharing their ultimate passion was beautifully insane.
As many other little girls, my biggest dream was to become a model/ actress. Don’t ask me why, I just wanted so. Growing up, these dreams faded, of course, but my love for photography never did. I have ALWAYS loved taking pics, always tried to create stories behind them. That’s why I got extremely excited when I discovered the blogging world.
So this is how it all started. I must admit I was not active at the beginning. There were many posts waiting to be published, yet my confidence was not that strong. And there was also the fact that the blogging industry was not really developed in my country at that time. I now realize that was a plus, but then I saw it as a disadvantage. Even if I was not posting, I was daily checking other blogs, analyzing new trends, getting informed etc. December 2015 was when I decided to let go of my insecurities and just set my passion free. I have been creating content on Fabbix ever since and it seems it pays off. I’ve had my first collaboration with a brand from the UK, which got me immensely thrilled. I felt like a real fashion blogger when I got their package. *such a kiddo*
No, I don’t do it for the money. But seriously now, when I hear famous bloggers saying “you should never see your blog as a business” / “you’ll have more success if you don’t focus on money” / “don’t think about statistics or whatever, write for yourself”, my eyes roll for a bit. I mean, it is true, there is more to blogging than that, but what blogger would not love to work with big brands? It’s like asking a model to not dream about being a VS angel. Or asking an entrepreneur to never dare to wish for his company great success. Absurd! If I had not wanted people to find out about my passion or about my experiences, then I would have simply written my ideas in my diary only.
FBX is not my business, is not my main priority, yet I am open to any opportunity that may come along. I write whenever I feel inspired, I write because I feel joy even if there could be only one single person reading my posts. I am addicted to people and things which make my life beautiful, so what wouldn’t I share them with the world?
