First and foremost, I'd like to thank you all so much for visiting my website! It means more to me than you'll ever know. Creating a blog was always something that I've wanted to do, and I finally took the plunge. I was hesitant at first because I didn't want to be known as "just another blogger", or as someone who was trying to do something because everyone else was doing it. Also, I'm very private (as hard as that may be to believe), and therefore sensitive about what I put out to share with the world. It's intimidating and it really does leave you vulnerable and exposed. With entering a brand new year (*EDITOR'S NOTE*: this post is a liiiittle late, I know - HI FEBRUARY!), and making it a point in my life to try and experience everything that life itself has to offer, I knew it was finally time to ignore my doubts and insecurities and bring my ideas to life.
I had always dreamt about blogging. I fell in love with the thought of sharing certain elements of my life with whoever was willing to listen (in this case read), and with those who already liked my vibe and simply wanted to get to know more. I also created this space to help and inspire people, no matter how huge or minuscule the impact. Whether I help 1 person or 1,000 people with the content I post, it's a huge deal for me. Huge.
I'm not going to act like I know everything about blogging, because I'm really learning along the way. There's so much more to just providing content and posting. I'm constantly researching and observing. I do know, however, that I want to be 100% honest and upfront with everyone about everything.
While most of the posts on my blog may be about fashion and my personal style, I don't want to just categorize Alexis-Baker.com solely as a personal style blog. This site is going to be a compilation of things that have inspired me, things that I feel represent me, products I've used and ended up falling in love with (even things I've fallen out of love with), places I'd like to visit, where I've been, chats about life and everything else imaginable. Think of it as my personal online diary that I'm choosing to share with the world in a sense!
I am going to keep this first post short and sweet, but I'm SO excited and nervous to see where this whole thing goes. Again, I can't thank you enough for taking the time out of your life to come visit Alexis-Baker.com. I've got some pretty great things in mind for the blog, and hope you all end up becoming frequent visitors to my site! I can't wait to go on this new journey and to have you along for the ride!
