Train of thoughts: My blog as a diary


Hi everyone,

It’s time for another train of thoughts where I am letting my thoughts take over control of my typing. See it as a form of rambling, but I’ll try to stay on topic!

Check out my previous train of thoughts about Pokémon Go if you are curious 😉

For today I want to talk to you about my view on my blog at the moment. From the beginning I think the main focus of my blog has always been fashion. But as I am growing older, yes I turned 26 last week, I want my blog to grow with me. I am getting more mature and I want my blog to mature as well. So at the moment I am thinking a bit about changing it up a little. To ensure that my blog can grow further.

Because sometimes, as a blogger with a main focus on fashion, I feel like you can only get really big if you have a lot of money to buy clothes. Or for example if you can borrow designer stuff at PR firms / friends / family etc. Let’s just be honest, I lost my job and will be unemployed starting November if I haven’t find my next challenge by then. So I just don’t have a lot of money to spend. And in my opinion, if you want to grow your blog, you really need to invest, at least a little. For example as a fashion blogger you need to be able to show nice on-trend outfits or at least, very diverse outfits. And as a beauty blogger you want to be able to review new products to create new make-up looks with.

My blog as a diary…

Therefore I am thinking that perhaps I need to transform my blog a little bit. At the moment I am just not able to share a new outfit every week and I also want to share more than just my love for fashion. Not only do I think sticking too much to fashion limits my blog a little bit, I also feel like I just have so much more to offer!

I would love to be able to share more personal stories, but it would also be great to share more magazine types of posts, posts where I can show of my writing skills. I always shared some more lifestyle related posts once in a while but I think I should share more of these. From posts about my latest travel adventures, inspiration posts, trend reports, must haves et cetera.

Basically I want my blog to become more ME, more Saranda. I am still working on the exact changes and how I want to do everything. But let me just assure you, it’s not all going to change! As mentioned earlier I just want Serendipity to evolve and to grow with me. What this means, hopefully, is that this blog will not only grow mature with me, but also with you as my readers… So please also let me know what you would like to see more of on the blog and I will keep it in my mind!

Let me hear your train of thoughts on this topic and stay tuned! 🙂

    Sorry to hear about your job hun, but the silver lining is you can now search for a new opportunity. And regarding your blog, I think it’s natural that the blog grows with you. As you change so does the blog and your readership as well ☺

    What a open minded story. 26 years is still young! If you love fashion and want to blog about it , find a way. Switch clothing with friends , find interesting cheap pieces to show. Share your own style and not what’s in the magazines. Then your never running out of fashion!

    Although.. I like that you want to take us in an more inspirational kinda blog.
    Excited to see what’s coming up!

    Much love,
    Tina ♡
