Last week was International Women's Day and it was AMAZING. Dazey Ladies were posting left and right and the empowering vibes were everywhere. What a day to be a woman! On that same day I was lucky enough to collaborate on a photoshoot with three amazing blogger babes, @EmilyVartanian, @OfficiallyQuigley, & @FrankVinyl. We had so much fun working together and it just felt like the perfect thing to do on the perfect day. Emily was so inspired she went home and wrote an awesome article on how we can all focus more on collaboration over competition. In the blogger world the competition can be especially fierce, but in reality if they work together and help one another they would all come out ahead. She really captures that in her words from a bloggers perspective, and I think there's a strong takeaway for all of us in it.
International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate ALL females no matter the age, ethnicity, size, shape, color and everything that’s in between! I spent the day hanging out and shooting with @OfficiallyQuigley, @FrankVinyl and @DaniDazey.
It was the perfect, on-the-whim way to spend Women’s Day…with three creative, beautiful, unique and inspiring women! The afternoon inspired this post, which was not a planned one, I might add. I just felt compelled to write my thoughts on the blogging space and how we can all be collaborative female bloggers and not competitive ones.
In this day and age we talk so much about female empowerment, supporting each other, raising each other up. But, are we really putting our 100% into it? I question that A LOT when it comes to the blogging space and that’s just my honest opinion. Sometimes, as much as we post kickass quotes, comment, like and share are we REALLY supporting each other or are we putting on a show for our own selfish reasons? Really think about it, if a blogger was to ask you how you gained 1000 followers in a day would you share your secret? If they were to ask you for the contact to the amazing hotel you stayed at last month would you send them the direct contact email? More often than not the answer is NO…you wouldn’t. And that you guys is NOT the example of female empowerment.
I get that this space is oversaturated and filled to the brim with girls trying to do the same thing. But if we all TRULY support each other, from an honest good-loving place then we all grow together, there is space for everyone! Below are some simple things I thought we could all do to collaborate rather than compete with each other.

Funny how this girl Emily talks about collaboration … when I complimented her she will speak back but when I asked her multiple times how I can improve my editings she ignored my messages. Not that she had to share it with me, she could have been polite and responded that she rather keeps it a secret. More ironic is that she goes and pretend to be collaborative …. fake!
