Today I find myself wondering where I stand in the blogging world. Am I primarily a retailer who blogs or am I a blogger who sells? There are so many creative people out there who choose to express themselves through their blogs (some of them succeed, some of them don’t, but then who am i to judge) they then become a vehicle for adverts and are able to turn their blog in to a money making venture. Its like there’s ever increasing ways to make money, so even when I read a blog which has heart and soul I now find myself wondering if they are in it for the cash only. For this reason I think I want to classify myself as a retailer who blogs. I started this blog to tell people what I wanted to achieve and that is to sell shoes. Although if no-one buys them, maybe I can pretend I’m just a blogger who keeps lots of shoes in her front room…
I was heartened to see yesterday that Baukjen, a brand which I admire for its simple marketing and straightforward clothes seem to have the same idea as me as to which flats should be staples in a wardrobe. They are selling these for SS13 at a slightly more expensive price than I will be selling my very similar ones for.
You may be asking yourself why I’m showing you these, bearing in mind they are so similar to my Kingston style, but of course Baukjen only go up to size 8. My Kingston’s will be starting at a size 9 – although I will be carrying more size 10’s & 11’s.
Verification that I’m on the right track! Delivery expected w/c 11th March – watch this space.
