Being Accountable...

I recently read something about Miss Indie and how she was trying to figure out some sort of "formula" to be a successful (ie money making internet famous) blogger. If you don't know about the whole Miss Indie scandal, you can look it up yourself. It's something that I feel has been talked about way too many times and I don't know enough or care enough to comment. Someone in the comments posted about how she was a fake blogger, going through the motions of what should qualify as a successful blog. Now I'm not sure if that's true about Miss Indie, you'll have to ask her. But I realized something... it rings a bell of truth with me.

I've been blogging here at Seductive Mania for the better part of 2 years. I actually started this blog (on Wordpress) in 2010. Only in the past 6 months have I started to build a following and if I'm really honest with myself it's because I paid for them. I got smarter, I joined giveaways and started putting my face on peoples blogs. I've joined link ups and twitter friended. And I have met a handful of really incredible people.

But I don't think my blog reflects me anymore. It isn't my "seductive mania," it's my trying too hard forced and fake face. I've done everything I thought I was supposed to. I got sponsors, I had features, I even had a giveaway or two. I post about fashion when to be honest, most days my hair is up and I'm wearing Trent's AC/DC pj pants. 

I don't like the smell of books. I don't like pumpkin spice and I think milkmaid braids are weird. I love watching bad tv and I put sriracha on everything. I love my boyfriend and travelling makes me so happy. Farmers markets are heaven for me, so are kitchen supply stores and I don't own anything from Modcloth. I have a knife that cost me $170 and don't regret a penny, but I can't justify spending $20 on some cream for my face. My nails are almost always dirty and my toenails perpetually have chipped nail polish on then. Maps make me incredibly happy, I love planning and I love lists. I love scrapbooking, but I enjoy doing it at my own pace. I can't have a deadline and I lose steam at almost everything I do. I buy things instead of making them and my DIY's never seem to turn out right.

I'm far from perfect, but I feel like that was the first time I've ever really been real on my own blog. 

I've decided that the Seductive Mania chapter of my life is coming to a close, but I want to continue blogging. I'll let you know where my new adventure takes me, but for now here are some really awesome women to follow:

Thanks for everything xoxox

Things I Should Probably Tweet...

There are a couple of things I should probably say on Twitter, if I actually remembered to use my twitter, accompanied by various instagram pictures. 

Seriously how good are high school chick flicks. Like good down and dirty cheerleaders vs jocks with way too many pretty people in one place. 

I'm pretty sad actually that I never made the cheerleading team. I wasn't peppy enough.

My house smells weird and I don't know if I have the energy to clean it up.

I'm so super excited to go to Melbourne this week, I'm going to hit up the farmer market and maybe the aquarium, and it's going to be so awesome.

Does anyone want to give me the beginners low down on how to do my makeup... I'm so lost.

Celebrity morgue Halloween party next week and it's going to be awesomeeee.... once I figure out who to bed.

I should probably watch Factory Girl again.

I'm trying to decide if I should rename and change my blog or not. Not really sure.

Remember how awesome Amanda Bynes was before the whole cray cray thing?

I'm pretty sure She's the Man was the only time soccer was ever exciting...

My tounge really hurts.. is that weird?
