Welcome to This Girl Wears Heels!
Can I first wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!! 2018 is here and I am grateful that I am still here with all my faculties intact!
As I sit in my living room typing this, I’m amazed at how far I’ve come through life’s unexpected twists and turns. Starting this blog in itself has been a bit of a plot twist! I was speaking to a friend on 28 December about her plans for 2018 and when she asked me what my plans were, I loosely said I might start the blog. I’m sure she was secretly fed up of me saying I would do this (probably rolled her eyes – girl if you are reading this, you know you do like a good eye roll!!), but as a good friend would, she encouraged me to stop second guessing myself and to go for it. To make life easier, she even came up with the name for it. I’m not sure what came over me, but I got the domain name registered and Instagram page set up by the end of the day! Et voila! Here we are. It’s been a long time coming but I finally bit the bullet!
Over the last couple of days I’ve read a lot of material about blogging – what kind of posts are popular, how often I should post, how to drive traffic, curating a great Instagram feed etc. There’s a lot of material out there. It is overwhelming to say the least. While all these things are important, my focus is not on the stats. I’m still working on the direction this blog will take – but as my husband says, it’s easier to direct a moving object, than a stationary one. Now don’t get it twisted – I’m going to need exposure and engagement and likes – so don’t be stingy. Ok? Thanks 🙂 But more than that, it’s about authenticity and my personal evolution as a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife, a broken soul and a person trying to figure it out. I promise it won’t all be soppy!!
I’m looking forward to getting started and getting to know you. I hope you will be able to connect in some way with the content I put out. Do comment – I’d love to hear from you!
Thank you for stopping by – make sure to follow me on Instagram. I hope to see you again soon.

PS – I might actually get to a point where I’m comfortable with you knowing my name – but that day is not today 😉
