I have noticed in the past couple of weeks that I have had a major switch in subscribers – tons of new ones, and a bunch of people decide to leave. I can only assume this drastic change is due to me posting about my daughter.
To those who are not happy with it, I do understand. Before I gave birth to Emerson, I promised this would not become a Mommy Blog. I despised those blogs where people constantly posted pictures of their “little pumpkin” and raved about first smiles, laughs, spit ups and such. This blog is called MY Wardrobe Today for a reason – it is about the wardrobe of an average woman – average American size, average budget, average lifestyle.
However after having Emerson in my life, I see how her existence affects my wardrobe just as much as my office environment, my work commute, my activities on a Friday night. To ignore her is if I ignored the reason why I only wear denim on Fridays and weekends – it's a major aspect of me and my wardrobe.
As I have stated before, I was NOT a baby person pre-Emerson. I found babies messy and loud and weird. I didn't like to hold them, I did often find them cute, but didn't go gaga over them. I felt disconnected to friends once they became parents because it seemed like a whole different culture and language from my own. So if you unsubscribe due to me posting about Emerson, I don't blame you and I fully understand. I have had people unsubscribe when I have lost weight, when my attire got less professional, when I got older. This blog cannot be relevant to every woman – my goal is to have it be relevant to many women, but also be a true reflection of myself as a woman.
For those who do like the Emerson photos and updates… I plan to keep them at least for the time being. They will be secondary on posts, will be smaller photos and take up less text… but they will remain. Also I will be posting pictures from events I attend, pictures of my husband, friends and family (when they are cool with it), and what in my life makes me me… and determines what is in my wardrobe today! 🙂
