This was the second blog I started and it only lasted a few months. It’s a little embarrassing and I always reserve the right to pick up any blog again, but it didn’t take off like I had hoped.
I started The iLOVE Project with the hopes that I could post more about positivity and motivation. I wanted to motivate myself to volunteer and do good to others. I also wanted to reach out and virtually hug those readers who were going through depression and needed words of love.
The task turned out to be too big, though, and I started to feel like a hypocrite because I didn’t have a perfectly happy life. I started to feel a little inauthentic. I was also discouraged all around at the lack of money I was making for having two blogs and trying to run everything.
I learned lots, though.
I learned that I can start another blog and have a moderate amount of success after a few months. This might have been, however, because I told me other followers to check it out.
I also began experimenting with guest bloggers and had a lot of fun coming up with ideas with a group of people. I am, again, a little embarrassed that it fell through because I had some amazing women behind me.
I learned more about site design and tend to use this blog to experiment with different things since I’m not overly attached (I say that now, but if something happened to it I would probably be sad).
Check out the blog:
(just remember that I’m not currently updating it)
Just my @amandaRdewitt accounts. (I changed them from @theiloveblogger)
I still use #theiloveproject on Instagram regularly and so do some of my awesome friends.
