After blogging for nearly three years, I can say that I'm very pleased with the upward trajectory my blog stats has steadily gained. Despite the positive increase in numbers, I realized that the biggest mistake I could make is to be complacent, and not allow - not just my blog- but myself to evolve.
In case you missed it my wife Rina, who happens to be the Photographer of The Pickiest Eater, has started her own Mommy/Lifestyle blog, called Rina's Rainbow. There, not only does she share her learning experiences as rookie mom, we now also have a more detailed chronicling of our daughter Rain's growing up.
When she started her blog, it gave me an idea on what I could do to help me grow as a blogger. Since The Pickiest Eater covers food with a bit of travel, and Rina's Rainbow handles the Home/Living/Lifestyle topics.. I decided that I would expand my horizons, and create a new Blog, covering a totally new landscape for me.
This is a bold venture, because it is something totally out of my element, but I do want to give it a chance and see where it will go from here.
So my "Huge Announcement" is that I'm starting a whole new blog, and I hope you will all continue to support me, as relentlessly as you have my original blog, "The Pickiest Eater In The World".
Without much further ado, I present to you a teaser from my newest blog.....
THE PICKIEST FASHIONISTA IN THE WORLD!
Don't get me wrong.. I don't really have any designer duds or anything like that. But Fashion blogs aren't always about high end designer clothing. It's about sharing your own personal style with the world. It's about whatever clothes you feel comfortable in, no matter how loud, no matter how plain.
I hate any shirt that's too tight and feels constricting. I'm a makulit guy so I need to be comfortable with my mobility.
I'm not the most statuesque person in the world, and normally cargo shorts aren't the best way to go for someone my height, but I couldn't care less. I've been using these shorts for the past few years and I'm not even sure if it's mine. (I might have "accidentally" swiped it from my brother hehe). But I like using it because of the side pockets, and Rina says it accentuates the curves of my butt (
She never said that).
These Elton John-esque shades... well.. I have no idea whose they are. Rina actually just found it in the car on our way to the shoot location. The frame was nice and light though. I honestly think it's for girls.
My choice of footwear on a leisurely day is Sanouk. The rubber soles are extremely comfortable and great for walking. I've had this pair for around two years or so, and they've shown no signs of wear and tear (they kinda looked beat up to begin with). Perhaps my only comment is that if you do some heavy walking, the moment you remove your shoes from your feet, you will get a good whiff of what evil might smell like.
So there you have it! My first attempt at a fashion blog post. I hope to improve as I go along, so I appreciate the constructive criticism. But please be kind? hehe
