I once read a study that found a positive relationship between the number of times one logs on to facebook per day and the traits of narcissism. Immediately, I can't help but to think of the correlation between blogging and narcissism. Blogs concentrate more on a specific interest as opposed to facebook, which functions more like an outlet of self-promotion; nonetheless, fashion blogs in particular are usually plastered with self-portraits and to some extent, bound to carry more narcissistic traits than any other type of blogs in my opinion. The study also shown that those who have lower self-esteem tend to spend more time on facebook. Similarly, blogging can sometimes work as an ego-booster for those who seek recognition and in a way, a popularity contest just like most social media actually. It would be interesting to see the results if the same study was conducted on fashion bloggers. Something I think about in my down time: do fashion bloggers attain more narcissistic qualities or/and lower self-esteem than others? Thoughts? If there was such thing as a low self-esteemed narcissist, I think I am one. haha :)

Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend!
Next up, another DIY post!!

    Fashion blogging is about sharing and expressing but also wanting recognition for your own style. Nothing wrong with that though :)
