how I got into blogging

18 October 2017


I first started blogging in January 2014. At this time, blogging was just something you did for fun. There were not that many bloggers out there. It was no industry, no opportunity for a marvellous job. There were a lot of fashion bloggers. Then, we all came together : the beauty lovers, lifestyle dreamers, foodies and traveling bloggers. Well, next thing you know, there were hundreds of bilions of bloggers all over the world. Soon, everyone was becoming a blogger. Then, Instagram arose and we all started to share more than our lives. We were selling a picture perfect life.

Let's turn back time, my birds. Blogging didn't use to be so perfect. Back in 2014, it wasn't all about selling the dream, the perfect lives, only showing people what they wanted to see. It was more like sharing a piece of yourself, talking about your dreams and passions. It was more like creating a bridge between you and the world. Everyone was blogging for themselves and no one else.

~ How serenbird was born

What was the idea between Serenbird? I wanted a place to share my thoughts. I needed a place to express myself and to talk about the things I loved. In the beginning, I was sure I would never get any readers. I was not doing it for the fame. I was blogging because I loved writing but then the most incredible thing happened. People came across my blog. They sent me emails, followed me, left comments on my blogposts.


The world was responding. There were people out there.
And that, my birds, was the most wonderful thing I had ever seen.

~ Why I decided to write in English & how my style evolved

The very first bloggers I followed were InTheFrow & Llymlrs. They are amazing girls with a killer style. They were sharing pictures of their everyday outfits. I was fully aware that I would never be able to do outfits posts. I don't have the resources or the knowledge to do so eventhough I freaking love fashion. So I turned back to my other passion : makeup and beauty products. I wrote very small reviews and started taking pictures. They were far from perfect but I was trying my best. My pictures are still not as good as I want them to be but I've grown to love my blog. My style has grown and evolved. I love composing pictures, mixing patterns and playing with lights. As for my writing style, at some point I even tried to write my blogs in English and French but ended up sticking to English. It took too much time and I didn't have many French followers. I prefer writing in English anyway so I didn't see why I should do something I didn't like.

While I know I would never be a famous blogger, I'm very happy to be in the position I'm now. I have given a lot of time and efforts into this blog. What I am most proud of as to be you: my birds. I'm the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you for making SERENBIRD real. I would not be there if it wasn't for you. Now, I'm not only writing for myself, I'm writing for you, my birds. ♥
