The Sound of Substance
Give me more.
There's too many people who want the social status and regularly have photo shoots to grow just because it's accessible; not necessarily because they want to make an impact on others.
Influencers who I've hung out with that have huge followings don't really have anything to offer once you look past everything.
Now everything is commercialized and people are just doing things for the free clothes and sponsorships.
When you're an influencer regardless if you have 100 followers or 1,000 that's 100/1,000 people you can reach and have the power to impact.
I think we get caught up in the wrong aspects of blogging that we forget how versatile and powerful our jobs can be. We are so much more than a pretty face and materialistic.
I mean, look at Buzzfeed, aka the Disneyland of the Internet. Why are their videos so popular? Why are their video personalities more popular than most bloggers?
They don't have any personal aesthetic, they're not all Eugenes, they're not fashionistas. They're regular people who are opinionated and passionate.
THAT is why they have a bigger following. They may not look it but they're just as equally creative as any other Insta-famous creative you could think of.
