Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”Oscar Wilde
This is absolutely one of my favorite quotes. Why? you might ask. Well, you’re looking at it.
It’s eclectic, unusual, not at all like the “blueprint” given for successful blogs.
But it’s so me.
It represents my personality. My fun spirit. My silly nature. My ability to have fun and laugh at my own jokes.
I debated many times about whether I should change to a more conventional theme, or make the background white, or lose some of the colors.
I agonized over whether I would get any readers at all or would they click off as soon as they saw my design (P.S. I appreciate you so much for sticking with me and getting this far!).
And as I was in the site customizer, choosing the conventional white background, I saw this quote staring at me.
It was if it was shaking its head at me, saying, You just don’t get it.
And then I got it—I have to choose to be myself.
There are enough conventional, white-background, simple-font, professional-images types of blogs out there. The world doesn’t need another one.
The world needs me to be authentically me. And it needs you to be authentically you.
So let your uniqueness shine through in everything you do.
