Faking It Until You Make It…

So what exactly does that mean? To me…it means living my DREAM now. But what exactly is my dream? I know I want to do something in which I’m allowed to be creative, ask questions and inform the masses. I know I would love to write for a magazine, maybe a lifestyle magazine…one involving my favorite music artist and other important figures that I enjoy. I also want to be able to make my own rules, and be able to express myself and let my views be known (in a respectable manner that is) all the while helping  people.

I want to bring something that has never been seen before….BUT doesn’t everyone? I’m a HUGE fan of blogging, I love to read blogs and I LOVE finding new ones. I remember the first time I actually started to really get into blogging. It all started on MYSPACE lol, I would occasionally post a blog about something that was bothering me and what not…but what I really enjoyed was reading other people’s entries. Probably the first MYSPACE blog that I would read on a regular basis was my girls Kioko blog lol. It was always funny and interesting to see her post about roommate issues and stuff like that.

It wasn’t until I was involved in a domestic altercation with a guy that I was dating back in 2008 did I really have the desire to have a blog of my own. I needed away to express how I was feeling about what was going on around me…I also need someone to talk to. And at that time, I was not in the mood to be bothered with anyone…which is pretty understandable after your world is rocked in such a way. That’s also when I joined a sneaker form…I was actually put on back in 2004 from my ex boyfriend. Mainly its a form for sneaker heads to trade and buy shoes and talk about the newest shoe to come out…but I was more interested in the General section of the form, which is where my ex would always show me these wild and crazy stories.

So in 2008 I decided to actually sign up and stop lurking on the site. It was there that my interest in getting a blog of my own was peaked. They had a topic in which people were sharing their favorite blogs as well putting up a link to their own. And one of the first blogs that I actually started seriously following was this guy Tommy blog. LMAO…shit was hilarious, and my favorite part about the blog was that it was just a regular blog about a regular guy (not that anything is regular about you Tommy), but he wasn’t talking about buying the newest hottest fashion or LV this LV that. He was a QUOTE UN QUOTE sneaker head…and he was FUNNY like bring tears to my eyes funny. And after reading his blog I started reading his boy Micah blog as well…once again regular guy…that anyone could relate to…also FUNNY as shit. So after leaving comments and talking back and forth online I decided to start a blog of my own…Tommy & Micah were one of the first to encourage me to do so.

That was back in 2008…and since then I have gone thru like 3 blogs that I have started and never completed…one of them being THIS blog that I have yet to delete. The first one I let someone get to me and scare me away from writing…which was a HUGE mistake. DREAM CRUSHERS aka HATERS they’re everywhere. Also I felt like my blogs weren’t “cool” enough to keep. So now I’m here with my latest and hopefully last “personal” blog. I named it Courtney Lynn because I wanted a place in which people could come and relate…and feel comfortable. I want it to be like hanging with a friend, and well shouldn’t you know your friend’s name?

Sorry…I know this kind of turned into a “Why I Blog” post…but my point is, I know I loving writing, I know that I love blogging. It’s just that sometimes I get caught up in reading other blogs and find myself thinking that maybe I can’t make it in the blogging word. That maybe m y stuff isn’t interesting because I’m not talking about the latest fashion or the newest music to come out by some new and upcoming artist. I’d love to be able to run a blog that got THOUSANDS of hits every day. But then I remember that this isn’t one of THOSE type of blogs…this is my blog. So until I get to “Popular Blogger” status in which I can get the coolest interviews and make money of what I LOVE to do…I’m a just keep pushing on…Faking It Till I Make It!

PS: Tommy your OWN post is still on its way…lol!

  1. Courtney.. you honestly expressed a number of things that I’m feeling. If we could get paid for blogging and meeting people to interview and go places to explore, I’d be in heaven. But I figured it out.. we just need to start our own magazine. We’ll set our own rules and boundries. HAHHAA. I love this entry.. seriously.

  2. Lol…man I so would be down. I’m still trying to figure out this latest project I’m working on. Our magizine would be so DOPE tho.
