Collecting Isn't Dead...
Updated: Mar 27, 2021
Upon registering an account with Instagram in hopes to use it as a fun extension of this blog, I’ve already had tons of conversations and quick interactions with a bunch of you. A lot of kind and supportive words filled my feed and honestly… it made my heart flutter. It was so amazing to hear
“I used to read your blog back in the day-”
and “I was wondering if this account was you!”, but the comments that really stick out to me right now are the “I found your blog a couple of months ago!”,
“I Just found your blog and used it to start building my wardrobe”
and “I’m a bit late to the game, but your blog has been helping me!”.
I didn’t think people had stopped collecting. I still run the blog’s facebook group and see people interacting all the time. What surprises me is the amount of newcomers and the sudden growth boom in the Twilight clothing community. At this point, I can only assume it was because of the release of ‘Midnight Sun‘. Perhaps a majority of the newcomers were too young back in the day? Or maybe some of them just weren’t in a stable position to be collecting? (I’d love to hear your stories!)
