These days there is nothing I enjoy more than spending my weekends at my parents' house doing all the activities that bring me pleasure and that I don't really have...
5 Years of Magical Thinking
It is that time again, when we look back and celebrate yet another year of magic and wonder. It’s been 5 years now since we started our online journey and posted our first article on the blog.
We sometimes get nostalgic looking back at those times, when we were just a handful of blogger girls, all knowing each other and being truly passionate about what we were doing. Since then, technology has evolved, times have changed and the underground became mainstream. Unfortunately, things are not done out of pure passion anymore, but with clear goals in mind and in most cases with an already tested recipe for success. We do miss those early times, when originality was a religion, when everyone had their own special thing going on and still respected and acknowledged the others.
Another year has passed and, in spite of all the hard work and devotion we put in every post, we must admit that we can’t manage to make a living out of it. Sorry for bursting your bubble, but without a pre-established minimum monthly income, we can’t believe one can realistically live only from (fashion) blogging, here in Romania – with very few exceptions, of course. Maybe we haven’t discovered the magic formula yet, but considering that most of the brands offer reimbursement in products and others pay after several months, it’d be difficult to even pay your bills.
All our lives we felt like underdogs and we still do, but growing up makes you see things in a different light and you know what? That’s ok. So, if you are still supporting us after all this time, we’d like to thank you from our hearts. Without your small gestures and kind words, The Hearabouts wouldn’t exist. So please bear with us, this ride might get bumpy, but it’s still going strong.
Lots and lots of thanks to Laura for the photos
