The most common question I get is “Do your friends and family know about your blog, lookbook, interest for fashion?” And the god damn truth is no. No they don’t.
I have for a very long time wanted to have a fashion blog. But as many of you teenagers know, to have that when your a teenager boy is very “gay-stampled”. People judge you way too early and even guys who know you think you are the weirdest guy ever. Especially in group! We guys can say so fucking stupid things.
Anyway it was in the end of September, a normal sunday. I had nothing better to do then sit by my computer. Somehow I got into this site Lookbook. Lookbook is a site where you basically post outfit pictures. I thought what the hell, lets do it! I made an account. Right then I had no idea that this ws the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I told two of my closest friends who is kind of into photographing and asked them for help to take the pictures. It didn´t take long until thing got serious. I started planning my looks. The clothes, poses and location. After that it didn’t take long until people started hyping, commenting and sharing my looks! After a while I didn’t feel ashamed of myself anymore. So I decided to start blogging. I also told some of my closest friends about this, but today there’s only about 20 people I know (inclouding my family) who know about my blog and Lookbook.
Today I’m not scared of people knowing. I know that EVERYBODY will know someday. Ofcourse I’m nervous about how everybody will react, but I kind of want it to happen.. soon!
I must also say that I wouldn’t have felt like this if it wasn’t for all of you amazing readers! 700 fans on Lookbook, 5500 views on Tumblr and 440 followers on Instagram. Thank you! <3
