Visuals tell stories. Sometimes even better stories than what’s written because people are left with their own interpretation of what they see. Then add a great story and the visuals are amplified. And of course, I had my own selfish reasons for changing my layout as many times as I did.
It’s my website. It’s me. As a blogger, this is my work of art. It expresses who I am and how I feel. A fashion blogger’s focus is their physical appearance. That’s their work of art. So does that make it okay to be stuck on appearances? Yes, but if for a good cause.
We all have our reasons for wanting to look good. One reason is to bring out our inner emotions through how we look. When I’m happy, I like to dress up. When I’m feeling down, I look like a hobo. People recognize this. People can sense if you’re the type of person they want to know more about or intentionally pass on the street. As an adventure and travel blogger, my physical appearance is my website. When I look at my site, I ask myself, if this was just another website on travel and adventure, would I follow it?
