I’ve always wanted to write this post but never had the time. But I’m gonna keep it short and sweet and tell you why I started Brilliance Of B.
It was October of 2009, when I decided I wanted to do something different in my life. I had been out of college for 5 months and working in Boston in a cubicle. I was so bored.
I started to think about the things I thought about in college and even before I went to college. I just knew I was going to be a Fashion Magazine Editor.
So, I asked myself the question, “How can I become a Fashion Magazine Editor when I just got a degree in Computer Science?” Then it clicked. I can join my dream and my skill together by creating a blog. I win both ways.
My every intention for this website was to write about fashion and makeup. I looked at this platform as a website that would one day become a fashion magazine. I wanted to share my views on fashion and what I thought was the latest and greatest. I only followed a few blogs back then, so I didn’t have a plan or even a blueprint of a fashion blog.
But, it formed into one of the things that I couldn’t see my life without. I had a love-hate relationship with blogging. Coming up with things to write about just to keep it interesting. It was hard but I still decided to write even when I didn’t want to. It formed and helped me shape my dream and encouraged me to strive for those memorable highlights in my life. Like attending fashion shows, press release parties, and brand showcases. Meeting and interviewing celebrities and feeling like I was one.
This little ole blog has even helped me get some amazing jobs and experiences to write in magazines that I thought I’d NEVER be in the position to do. Like, I’m seriously grateful for this piece of internet space I have.
Can you remember the first blog post that you saw from Brilliance Of B? I’d love to know!
