If you asked me on April 15th, 2017 when I launched my website that I would have any success with this blog, I’d laugh in your face and say “maybe-we’ll see”. Since then, I’ve grown so much since that first day.
It’s been three years since I launched my first blog about what I wanted to do with this chapter of my life. That blog changed my entire life I and I wouldn’t even know it at that time.
It feels so good to say that I’ve consistently blogged for 15 days straight. It’s a goal I’ve always wanted to accomplish and here I am on Day 15, one the most important days of the year. Having this platform to speak about my confidence journey, fashion and lifestyle advice, and all my passions that embody my reasoning for blogging is so special to me.
Where The Passion Started
I remember sitting in my class at UT learning about how to create a blog. At the time I thought it was a silly assignment. A semester later, I used that platform to my advantage. I relaunched my “Cheyenne Style’s Blog” to “Blogs By Cheyenne”. After a couple of months of blogging I changed it to just Cheyenne Lenore. Just me! After my first year, I knew this was something I wanted to do for as long as possible no matter what.
During my second year of blogging, I knew this was meant to be. I was able to reveal more of my story each and every post. My evolution of confidence and writing grew so much.
Now that it has been three years, I am happiest I have ever been with my content. After posting 50 blogs during this year – I know they are my best I’ve ever put out. The content from here on out will only get better which makes me so excited for the future!
Accomplished and Conquered Girl Boss
I am so proud of how far I’m come these past three years. I’ve made so many memories and been my most vulnerable self. During my third year, I truly became the ultimate girl boss. I haven’t been this passionate in anything ever – the closet thing is when I wanted to be a singer.
I am so proud of all the accomplishments I’ve achieved throughout my blog this past year. Who knew at year three I’d be partnering with the company that has helped me gain so much confidence I didn’t even think I needed.
Last year I remember mentioning how bright my future will be with blogging – I can’t believe how true that statement would be this year. Throughout this year, I would find more success with my blog over any year I have posted. This was the year I was so open and vulnerable with my blogs. Jumping outside of my comfort zone with fashion and lifestyle was my true
Why Did I Start Cheyenne Lenore
This outlet is an outlet I never knew I needed. I didn’t think I would ever share my story the way I have with so many of you. My past that I never shared with anyone is out there for all to read and I am the proudest of that. My journey to loving me and being confident and believing in myself is something that I want to share again and again until the whole world knows that this happens way too often to people.
The confidence I have now was not the confidence I had then. I didn’t love me. Cheyenne back then would look up to the Cheyenne now. When I think back to the girl who use to write songs on her bed wondering why no one talked to her that day or think back to when that girl didn’t know how to be confident and hated herself – it makes me want to help her.
I want to help the girls who were like me. The girls who look like me. The girls who don’t look like me. The girls who have no confidence like I did. I want to help the girls who are sitting at there foot of their bed crying everyday about when the bullying will stop. I want to help the girls who feel lost or don’t know their way. I’ve been there. I know how it feels.
I started blogging because I wanted to share my journey of how I got where I am today. I wanted to share my experience with my confidence and learning to love my body. I want to promote loving yourself and body positivity. I grew up different for a reason. That reason is this right here.
Every year I say the same thing – confidence isn’t something you are born with, it has to be learned. I truly the most confident I have ever been. It’s been the longest journey of self-love, but I wouldn’t change anything.
My Goals For Cheyenne Lenore
I have been dedicated to dreaming for years. Since I started blogging, I’ve dreamt of working with brands I love or seeing how my blog could inspire people who have been through the same thing I’ve gone through from self-esteem issues and confidence doubts – But I made it and know so many people out there can do it too. I’ve always said that if I can inspired one person, I would be happy. Now that I know I have inspired so many people with my blog, I know I can do anything I set my mind to.
My goal for this upcoming year of my blog is to continue with consistent posting. I have been enjoying daily blogging and I know this won’t be something I stop doing for a while. Additionally, I would love to post more vulnerable content and keep diving into clothing that is out of my comfort zone.
I want to take your requests to hear what blogs you want me to do! There are so many opportunities for year four ahead! I want to write more blogs about my confidence journey and being body positive. Of course I will post fashion and lifestyle blogs also! These are my favorites to write and collect content for. My goal is to make content I’m proud of and content that you all will love and inspire you to be the best version of yourselves.
Every year I make a list of the blogs I loved creating this past year. Here are a few of my favorite top blogs: A Girl Boss Mindset , 2010 VS 2019 The Decade of My Confidence Journey , Life Lessons A Pumpkin Can Teach You, , Plus Size Stereotypes Debunked , Boardwalk Style w/ Torrid , New Orleans Travel Blog
It’s a tradition every year that I write this blog while listening to Happily Ever After from Magic Kingdom, so I want to leave you all with my favorite quote from it; “Grab hold of your dreams and make them come true, for you are the key to unlocking your own magic.” Your goals and confidence is the key. It is the key to everything. Making your dreams a reality. Thank you for allowing me to share with you all my journey to unlocking my own magic.
I cannot thank you all enough for supporting me throughout these three years. Whether you were here from the first blog or just joining today – it means the world to me that you take time out of your day to spend it reading the blogs I create. Thank you for surpassing every blog record ever – the support this month has been unreal and I cannot understand this many people have seen my blogs. Thank you thank you thank you.
Thank you for the best 3 years!
