I am in competition with no one.  I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone.  I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday. ~ found on Pinterest

Nothing I have on today is new.  In fact, some of it is down right ancient by SL standards.  My blog has never been about what is trending right now anyway, whether it be fashion or Home & Garden.  It’s been about finding classic pieces I love, putting my own spin on them and showing the results off via this blog. And guess what?…Classic never goes out of style.

Early on in my career as a blogger I was fortunate to have the opportunity to blog for a couple of designers.  I soon realized that this was not going to work for me.  You see, I’m a control freak of sorts, and being told how many posts must be blogged, or it must be done this way or that way and if the outfit was not my style well, I was up the creek sans paddle.  Graciously backing out a few weeks into those relationships I have been blogging what they call ‘free’ ever since.  Well FYI it’s not free as I spend a small fortune shopping lol. But free as in no constraints; no one to answer to but myself?  You betcha.  If I want to publish one or two posts a week I can.  If I want to publish more I can, and if I don’t want to publish a dang thing then I am free to do so. I’ve never placed Classic Cougar Style on any feeds. Social media is way over rated to my way of thinking, and numbers and ratings mean diddly squat to me.  So why do I even bother to blog?

Because I love it.

Classic Cougar Style has always been an outlet for my creativity and therefore thoroughly enjoyable. More importantly, it’s been about learning something new, improving my skills and last but certainly not least, meeting fellow bloggers…and I have met some beautiful, talented souls through blogging that have become near and dear to my heart.

In the beginning when I started blogging I made a promise to myself…The day blogging became a job or a chore, is no longer enjoyable for me that is the day I walk away and Classic Cougar Style becomes nonexistent . Thankfully I have not yet to come to that point 🙂 I’m still learning, still get a rush when I see a like, a comment, or a follow and still enjoying my not so ordinary SLife.

Remember to be kind to one another.  TWMA♥
