Why We Decided to Start a Lifestyle Blog – One Month into Blogging
Why did we start our blog?
One month ago, when we first started building our website, we had no idea it would turn into such a staple in our lives. In fact, we had very few expectations at all. The Angelinos started very spontaneously. We kept up with other bloggers, and one day we started talking about having our own. Hours of designing, branding, and url-purchasing later, The Angelinos was born.
However, our reasons run much deeper than a spontaneous Sunday project.
When we first started dating, documenting our time together was difficult for both of us. As a new couple, we were uncomfortable taking pictures with each other. As a result, we’ve missed a lot of opportunities to look back on those first months. After starting YouTube this past Spring, we decided we wanted more ways to capture our life together.
We’re both visual, creative people.
Together, we end up spending a lot of our time wanting to create. In a lot of ways, creating The Angelinos broke down those barriers that kept us from documenting as much as we wanted to. Now, much of our time together is spent being creative. We love taking pictures of each other and of our life, and it’s exciting to know that we’ll be able to look back and remember all of these moments.
This was a great decision for us.
Starting this blog has transformed our lives. We get to take inspiration from everything around us. Our home and our city have become our muses, and we get the opportunity to make the most mundane aspects of our life beautiful. Most importantly, we get inspired by each other.
We started this blog on a whim.
But it was a whim built on a need to push ourselves to capture our life together. We wanted visual memories, and a place to put them. Now, taking pictures of each other has become second nature. We can make a day out of an impromptu photoshoot and just have fun together. The Angelinos has pushed us to be better creators; we’ve both gained so much from this blog. One month later, it feels like blogging is a permanent part of our lives, and we absolutely love it.
