Hi, I’m Lisa, and this is why I blog.

Yes, I am partly jumping on the bandwagon with this post, following Chloe, Hannah, Georgia and many other bloggers who have re-introduced themselves and their place in the bloggersphere. But this is also an ode to myself, for finally having a lightbulb moment and understanding where I would like my very own spot in this crazy world of blogging to be.

As you may remember, I was quite lost with my blog in mid-2017. An inspiring morning with Vix Meldrew in a dimly lit pub in East London later, and I was motivated, full of ideas and ready to change the entire look and feel of Lisa Kristin x around. And then, well, then I didn’t really do a lot of the points we talked about.

You see, I am a perfectionist. I still have ideas and I still love my blog, but I can’t put anything into practice until everything is exactly how I want it to be. It’s a curse. It led to me feeling out of place again, albeit not as lost as I was six months ago, and just the other night, as I lay awake racking my brain about how I could possibly make a change to my blog no matter the circumstances, I finally realised what it is I would like to do on here.

What it is I would like to do above everything else. Before I have even written one word, edited one photo, and inserted one link.

I want to be the change I would like to see in the world. I want to have a positive impact on my readers, share stories, experiences and feelings to make you feel less alone, less isolated, less discouraged. I want to research, understand and educate. I want to document and share, and sometimes, I just want to throw an outfit post or beauty discovery into the mix because that’s what I like my life to be, too. A balanced act of seriousness and lightness, because life shouldn’t always be politics and catastrophes and crises.

I want to improve my writing skills and become more secure in and happy with what I am putting out there, much like I am trying to become happier with how I’m putting myself as a person out there. The blog was always supposed to be a reflection of who I am, and I would like this to stand out even more.

A reflection of who I am somewhat requires the knowledge of who I am, but even at the grand old age of 27, I think I am still trying to figure it out.
The only things I can tell you for sure are that I’d rather buy books than clothes or makeup, I’d rather write than speak, and if I was a bit more talented in the singing department, I would’ve gone into musical theatre. That England is my home, and Germany never will be, despite having grown up there, but that I will forever be grateful that my origin allows me to practice a profession I adore. That I prefer dogs over people, winter over summer, and crisps over chocolate.

Everything else, I’m sure we’ll all find out over time. Deal?

’til next time x
