Pleased to Meet You, Blogosphere

Hi! If you’re reading this, I guess you’ve stumbled upon my humble attempts at the beginnings of a fashion blog——one that I hope will someday do justice to the level of depth which I confess to be involved with in the fashion world. Until then though, I am completely a novice, absolutely out of my element in the blogosphere, so I hope that even if you can’t bear with me (I won’t hold it against you) you will eventually check back. I’m a quick learner, I promise. So, let’s get to it, shall we??


            My name is Mya and I am currently a twenty year old college student at a large public university in Virginia. And, I believe, now the face behind the blog that is “Believe In the Color”. =] I’d like to start off my first post as a bit of an expose on why I decided to start a fashion blog, and perhaps touch on the hopes and dreams that I have for it. As a brand new blogger, I hope not only to make an influence on the internet fashion community but also meet tons of cool fashionistas like myself, and also the ones not so like myself. Maybe they’ll help me get inspired!


            I’ve held off on blogging period, let alone about fashion, for a long time now. Fashion may consume many a waking moment for me, but it isn’t the only thing I think about. I mean, I’m a college student with a job. Why not blog about THAT? Never mind that I check daily a bookmark list of my favorite fashion blogs that is perhaps twenty sites long, or that I am obsessed with sample sale sites and may go broke because of them. I guess you could say that I wasn’t really sure I had anything to contribute to the fashion community that was worth reading, and I felt that way for a long time. I was content to read all my favorite blogs without the need to reply. But, like every fashionista, my needs changed. More and more I found myself combing the internet unsatisfied with the posts of blogs I had previously found innovative and original, now rendered repetitive and even sometimes boring. I don’t expect this blog to solve that problem for any one else out there feeling the same way, but I do hope that it will inspire you to maybe look at your fashionable life and find the voids as well. Maybe it will help you color in the holes. That’s why I’m calling this blog “Believe In the Color”.


            So, I hope for the time being that this brief introduction will suffice as I delve into the fashion world. Having stood on the sidelines of the internet fashion blogosphere for a long time, I have a good idea of where I’d like to go with the site, but trust me, that idea is NOT set in stone. If you have comments, suggestions for a post or for the blog in general, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I always appreciate feedback and would love to hear what you have to say. All of the above being said, I’ll hopefully have your first fashion post ready for you guys within the next twenty four hours. Until then, go be your colorful, fashion fabulous selves.

Love Always, Mya
