Over the past few months there has been a surge of new people discovering Anna Marie Loves You. I am flattered and extremely grateful to be able to connect with so many people. Every time I get a new Facebook fan, or have my pictures liked on Instagram, my brain gets flooded with dopamine. But I started this blog for more than just the rush that attention brings.
I love fashion and the sense of empowerment I feel when I dress nicely. I want to share that with the world and inspire people to look their best. And of course, I do enjoy having people like and comment on my pictures – I mean who wouldn’t! However, while it is undeniable that we give and gain respect and credibility through our outward appearance and presence, at the end of the day physical appearance is very superficial.
There is so much more to life than how you look. I spend most of my time thinking about big picture things like physics, personal growth, and spirituality. I want to understand how the universe works, why we exist, how we can find purpose in our lives, and so much more. We are all on this journey of life together, and I want to connect on a deep level with and hopefully even inspire all the people who have found me on the Internet.
This is why I have become bored with the content that I am currently producing. The pictures I post of me in cute outfits are visually stimulating, but lack depth. I want to make more of my increased attention and transform Anna Marie Loves You into a place not just of breezy blog posts of new my outfits, but with profound relevance and insights into people’s lives.
Scrolling through my Facebook friend list, I realize how lucky I am to have so many beautiful and inspiring men and women in my life. They have taught me so much, and I know their stories would be valuable and perhaps even life changing for many of my fans and followers. I believe sharing the stories of the people who give me inspiration is the new purpose of Anna Marie Loves You.
So, sit tight, keep coming back and soon I hope to have first set of interviews up. It will be amazing. Stay tuned!
