May 16, 2019 marked a very special day for me! It has been three years since I launched Fabulous in Fayette! I want to thank everyone who follows me and that enjoys my content. It seriously means a lot!
Like I mentioned in last year’s anniversary post, I’m no stranger to blogging. Fabulous In Fayette may have just turned three, but I’ve been blogging for TEN years and had my previous blog for seven years before I shut it down in 2015 and just walked away. I just began thinking about my digital footprint and what I was putting out there. To be honest, it just boiled down to me not finding joy in it anymore. If you were involved in the blogging or content creation world back then, then you would know that that world was vastly different in 2009 versus what it was like in 2015 vs even now. Everything is different – the writing styles, photography, how we consume content, how we share content, and those things are just the tip of the iceberg.
I know I briefly mentioned this before, but fast forward to 2016, I wanted to start completely fresh and have one direct focus – Lexington and Kentucky. I didn’t want my blog to be about me. Contrary to what some assume about bloggers/influencers/content creators, not all of them have a website where the focus is themselves (If they do, there’s totally nothing wrong with that! Everyone who has a blog, website, or whatever you want to call it has a different mission behind it). I’m actually a pretty private person, so I thought about the concept and the direction I wanted to take my new site, and then I decided on a name – Fabulous In Fayette.
