First things first: thank you to Jackie Aina for inspiring me to write today’s blog post. She dropped an incredible Youtube video a few weeks ago that resonated with me! Inspiring me to write about why I don’t quite fit in with the influencer industry.
I’ve been blogging for 8.5 years now, and the blogging/influencer industry has changed so much over the years. While I’ve been able to build an audience and successfully and consistently partner with brands over the years, I can safely say that I don’t really have the same mindset as most influencers either, which isn’t a bad thing, either way!
I know that most of you who read this blog aren’t bloggers/influencers. However, I think a lot of people can relate to this post, whether you blog or have a career in another field. Even when I had my 9-5, I never felt like I fit those positions ever. Did I think I rocked at my job? Yes. Did I fit in with my other coworkers? Absolutely not. And you know what? It’s ok if you don’t necessarily fit in. Just keep on shining!
