Welcome to the new TARYNNEWTON.COM website! YAY! I am so happy that you are here. It has been a long time coming, and it feels so good to have a site that is truly represents me and equipped to serve my community. If you have been here for a while then you know my original blog name was Glamorous Versatility. Back when I started blogging, all the successful bloggers were doing it…so of course I had to follow suit and name my blog something. When I look at my past mistakes most of them stem from not staying in my lane and cultivating my own personal success. If you are new-ish here my previous blog website was glamorous versatility.com. (so long and even hard for me to type haha). It was time to simplify and just be me. Insert tarynnewton.com.
What can you expect to see here? You know how I am always talking to you all about how I am long winded? Well my site gives me an opportunity to actually share all my thoughts constraint. My site will allow me to go more in depth on all the areas of life I enjoy sharing. If there is a particular topic you would like me to share please let me know in the comment. You will see fashion, parenting, finance, home, travel, and everything in between.
With the launch of the new website I really wanted to also start my weekly community letter. I get a million and 1 emails so I didn’t want to have multiple emails coming out each week. And if I am being all the way honest. I really can’t commit to more than that. My weekly community letter will go out on Sundays. I thought this would be a great day, because I can give a recap of the week ending, and also motivate you all for the week ahead. By signing up for the newsletter you will get the first of everything. You will get a first look at our Youtube videos, stories that don’t make IG, and outfits styling that is just for my community.
I understand that I have some new faces or maybe some friends that have been around for awhile but don’t know the story. I started officially blogging back in 2016. I initially had the feeling that I wanted to start blog way before that. However, I let the fear of failing and what people may think stop me from actually starting. April I hit 5 years of blogging. It started out having no clue what I was doing. We were living in the apartment at the time, working on our finances. And I just asked Rick to start taking pictures of me in our courtyard. It started off solely as fashion. I never shared really anything else, and dressy fashion. As the first year went on I realized that this was not authentically showing who I am. I love being dressy, but honestly that was not the norm. I am not in heels every day of the week. The issue with not staying in your lane is you easily get burnt out, and I found that I really wasn’t building a community.
in 2017 I found out I was pregnant with Cyrus, and with a tough pregnancy along with being uninspired. I took a break from blogging, focus on my pregnancy and delivering Cyrus. Not to mention working a full-time job. At the time I wasn’t sure if I would go back to blogging. After taking a year off. I remember saying to my friend “I really want to share a little bit of everything” My kids, home, and style. She was like “just do it.”. When I made the decision to come back at that time I knew that I wanted to do it authentically. I wanted to just be Taryn. I stopped looking at what all the successful bloggers were doing, and just started improving on my content and started putting out consistent content.
Throughout the journey there has been tons of trials and errors, but I feel it is has grown me to learn who I am, and what I love to share. My favorite part of blogging is truly the connections that I have made with so many amazing women in my community. I love that we are all from different walks of life, but no matter if we are different seasons of life we still can connect.
This entire journey has been such a learning experience along with trusting and knowing what I bring to the table. While yes there are millions of bloggers out there no one is me. Once I learned that I feel that is when I started truly connecting.
If you are starting out blogging know that someone needs to hear what you have to offer. There is someone that needs to hear your voice. It can get easy to see where someone is 10 steps on your journey and get discouraged. Don’t let it discourage you, know that you are getting equipped to handle everything that comes at step 10.
I know that I do have some aspiring influencers and new bloggers so wanted to share.
I would love to share a variety of topics with the relaunch of my blog. Please comment if there are any topics you would like me to share. My mission for this blog is to serve my community. I don’t claim to know it all, but I am committed to share my experiences openly.
