Night Rambling

I've been going through my blog archive, browse through my old posts and writings, and all I can say is that I am proud of myself for sticking to who I really am. Blogging for more than 7 years can change you a lot, but I am glad that even though I have changed, I change in terms of maturity, not personality. My personality has remained the same, the way I blog has also stayed the same. I sometimes receive input about the way I blog, that I should change my layout to look more professional, buy a better camera or lens to produce higher quality photos (the twisted logic of  "the better the bokeh, the better blogger you are"), pose more elegantly - like a model  (but I'm not), find other interesting places to take pics, etc. But I don't, because that's just not who I am - and that is not my purpose of blogging. I am even comfortable with my blog domain which still uses .blogspot.com. I don't feel the need to put on makeup just for a blogpost. This blog is my diary, not something I sell and monetize. And I like to keep it natural. Even if I sponsor some brands, then that is just about it. I sponsor them without having to try so hard to adjust myself to the brand's image. Instead, the other way around.

I love myself.

Good night! :)

This is the main reason why I love reading your blog and your old posts...because they are just original!

I know some other blogs that are more "staged" than yours and I think more people like that kind of "staged" style better. But everyone's taste is different.

And I'm glad you haven't changed the way you blog until now! :)

Yes! I really love the way you blog, it feels so real and I just love the way it is! You are my true inspiration. I never skip a day to check your blog because I feel like I will always see something new but yet it's so you!

Wonderwoman is truly exist and it's you. Thank you for inspiring me for 7 years. It's awkward the first time I knew you actually from your deviantart. I thought you are an artist (which is right too) instead of blogger haha. Stay happy and bubbly kak diana! Happy new year (:

Aku juga pernah dapat komentar soal ganti kamera dan domain. Tapi sama kaya Kak Diana, aku juga masih nyaman. Kayanya gak ganggu apa-apa juga, deh :) Tetap have fun dengan bloggingnya, ya. Selamat tahun baru!
