Just To Say...

So, as you may have noticed I haven't posted much recently, to which there has been a reason!

A little while ago I read some negative comments about my blog from somebody who I actually know, who then had the audacity to steal my blog title for herself too. These comments were along the lines of "if you don't take your own pictures and just copy them off a store website then you're not a blogger and you shouldn't call yourself one, nobody will enjoy it."

To start with the comments really knocked my confidence and I felt that maybe they were right. However, now I've had time to actually think about it and I am finally feeling better about what I do.

I don't post pictures of my own 'style', that's not what I started this blog for. I created this blog to show items that are available out there for petite ladies and to showcase new petite brands. I am not going to change this (mainly because I don't feel comfortable taking photos of myself and I could never buy all of the items that I want to show on here!) just because of the comments. However I do realise that it does make a blog a lot more appealing to you readers and it is something that I hope to do in the future.

On the subject of being classified as a 'blogger', just because I don't take my own pictures doesn't make me any less of one, and the use of photos doesn't technically alter what a 'blogger' is (see said dictionary definition below).

A weblog.
intr.v. bloggedblog·gingblogs
         blog·ger n.

To write entries in, add material to, or maintain a weblog.

I write because I enjoy writing and it's something I would love to be able to do as a career in the future, I don't claim nor aim to be a photographer, if I did then okay maybe these comments would hold more of an argument and valid point.

So, after all of this I'm finally ready to come back and (hopefully) start blogging again on a regular basis with more of a structured schedule!

I hope that those of you who do read this blog enjoy it and I appreciate all of the lovely comments that you guys do leave, even if I am terrible at replying, so thank you very much!

To those who don't enjoy it, then don't read it and stop putting other people down.
