What I’ve Learned After 5 Years of Blogging

Hello, friends! Let’s go back to the beginning, shall we?

At the end of January of 2013, I pulled the trigger on starting a blog after multiple requests for one had rolled in on my Instagram, after spending much of 2012 sharing my personal style there. It was a little nerve-wracking, venturing into something I knew nothing about, but truth be told, I was hungry for connection and suffering from boredom.

See, about six months prior to the launch of Sequins & Things, I had just moved back from living in Denver, Colorado. During my time there, I wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms by the ladies I had met in the circle of friends I found myself in. It was a time in my life where I had never felt more surrounded by people yet so alone at the same time. I’ve always been a little bit of a shy person but, through the years, I’ve become much more comfortable in my own skin and inquisitive around new people. After challenging myself to say ‘yes’ to everything and venture outside of my comfort zone, which is always necessary when you move somewhere new, I constantly left feeling like it was all for nothing. I had never been so blatantly disregarded and rejected before and it was, honestly, one of the most hurtful experiences I’ve ever been through. Of course, everything happens for a reason. I ended up back in Jacksonville and I truly believe it was so that I had the opportunity to spend the last 15 months of my Mom’s life with her, under the same roof. More on that in this post! But, as if that wasn’t enough, it seems like it was for more than that, as well.

As I was sifting through and dealing with the feelings of rejection that my time in Colorado left me with, I decided to focus on things that I really enjoyed and brought me fulfillment and happiness. I had grown to love sharing my interests in shopping and personal styling through my posts on Instagram. I had grown to love interacting with the women who found my account through those posts, all of which had similar interests as me. And, I had become increasingly intrigued by the idea they kept throwing out to me about starting a style blog, which would make sharing the details of my posts much easier, as the links to everything would be all in one place. I thought it was a great idea. It also seemed pretty fun. I have always had a bit of a knack for the creative side to things, and thought … how hard could it be?

If you had told me five years ago that the blog I was starting as a hobby would end up being my full-time job instead of nursing, I’m not sure I would have believed you! At the time, I wouldn’t have understood how that would even be possible. At that time, I understood that the blog posts would be of service to people who were looking for style inspiration but it never crossed my mind that a blog could generate an income nor did I have a concept of how a blog could be beneficial to these brands I was wearing and stores I was purchasing from. In hindsight, I was pretty naive but I’m pretty comfortable blaming my nursing major designation for this as it, shockingly, didn’t afford me the ability to take classes on marketing, digital media strategy or business. So, you can imagine my surprise the anxiety mounting as these concepts started presenting themselves as things I should know and understand in order to do this whole blogging thing well.

The truth is … there’s a lot to learn when it comes to running a blog, much more than I ever imagined. So, today, on the first day of the next chapter in my blogging career, I thought it might be helpful … and fun! … to share some of the most important things I have learned over the past five years!

You’re not going to be for everyone. You’d think I already learned this from my ‘friends’ in Colorado, huh? No. Sadly, this is something blogging has reminded me of many times. As much as my blog is a place where I feel at ‘home,’ it’s also a place where people sometimes stop by to offer their unsolicited opinions about me, my appearance or how I choose to run the blog. Thankfully, this doesn’t happened too often but, the experiences I have been presented with have helped me strengthen my IDGAF muscle. Excuse my ‘language’ there but, it’s true. It’s a waste of energy for me to try and please everyone because it’s truly impossible. Everyone is wired differently and for good reason! There would be nothing special about the connections we have with certain people if we were all made the same and made to connect the same way. There are people out there who are going to rub you the wrong way and I might be one of those people for you. You might be that person for me, too. It’s cool … we’re just different but, there’s no need to shame the other person over it.

When I get these unsolicited opinions, it’s helpful for me to remember this quote:

“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world,

and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” Dita Von Teese

This same lesson applies to brand partnerships. Whether we bloggers want to believe it or not, the truth is that you are not going to be a good fit for every brand, whether you’ve worn their clothes for years or not. It’s important to align ourselves with brands that not only respect our place in the industry but also value our voice in the market. So, if a brand isn’t biting, don’t get yourself down! There are plenty others out there that will!

Let’s take this out of the blogging world and apply it to everyday life. Remember: There is nothing wrong with the way you are wired and who you are as a human being. Does humor tend to be a quality that MORE people gravitate toward than, say … the ability to play devil’s advocate? Maybe. But, if you kept that unique characteristic about yourself from other people, wouldn’t it be a shame if someone you came across really needed someone with that ability? You just inadvertently robbed them from a blessing. My point is, don’t only share the sides of you that are the ‘most likable’ and the ‘most appealing’ in order to gain popularity. There are people out there that are looking to connect on the level that maybe you crave, as well. So, get out there and be yourself … no matter what that looks like!

“Always be a first rate version of yourself instead of a second rate version of somebody else.” Judy Garland

Quality over quantity. As the blog has expanded into more than a style blog, I have found that the time it takes for me to put certain posts together is considerably more than the amount of time it takes for me to put together one outfit post. Yet, I still schedule five blog posts to go live a week and, if you’ve been following me for awhile, you know how inconsistent my posting schedule is. The truth is, I have a strong desire to get five posts to you a week but I also have a strong desire to make sure that those posts are up to my standards and, often times, they wouldn’t be if I did actually post five times a week. It took digging deep into my analytics from this past year to show me just how important quality posts are compared to the number of posts I share. I used to prioritize putting energy into posts that y’all didn’t even ask for, and push back the ones you begged me for, because the one you didn’t ask for was going to get done quicker. I prioritized my desire to get a post up no matter what it was and was met with a rude awakening, that I honestly should have expected. The analytics made it very clear that those posts I threw together for the sake of having a post up had considerably lower traffic than the posts I shared that more in-depth, personal and, overall, better quality. Those resonated with y’all so much more. It made me realize that my blog is turning into something different and I need to shift how I plan my content and my idea of a ‘successful’ week in terms of blog post content. I want my blog, now more than ever, to be a place where you can go to get answers to your questions and genuine opinions about places I’ve been and products I’m trying. If making sure that’s what I’m giving to you guys means that I only get three or four blog posts out most weeks, I think it’s going to be okay! 🙂

Don’t be afraid to take a step back from the action. This has been a lesson I’ve been learning in a couple of different ways over the last couple of years.

– While living in London in 2016, I had to take a bit of a step back because living there was a once in a lifetime experience. I wanted to make sure I took full advantage of being there and I was dating someone who wanted to take advantage of the fact that we weren’t long-distance anymore, and rightfully so! Living in London challenged me to stop chasing success so much. I’ve learned that that life, chasing success and numbers, is nowhere near as fulfilling or life-giving as investing in your relationships, saying ‘yes’ to spontaneous outings and adventures, and not being ‘on’ all the time and, instead, being ‘present’ with who is in front of you. The truth is whatever success, or goal, you’re chasing is never going to be enough. It’s like the handbag you ‘have’ to have. Once you have it, it’s not as appealing as it once was. I’m not saying that bloggers should be ashamed of themselves for wanting to be successful or setting goals for themselves. Please don’t get me wrong. I’m just saying that getting caught up in this industry happens and it can be really unhealthy so, it’s important to be aware of when you’re potentially reaching that unhealthy level. Taking a step back and assessing your personal health, mentality and wellness is important. Ask a friend to be your accountability partner and kindly call you out when they think it’s time you take a break. Doing life outside of the online world is important. Investing in your real life relationships, sans your phone and sans asking for outfit photos to be taken when you are in a cute brunch spot, is important. Yes, bills need to be paid and all of that but, really, truthfully, I think we can afford to go without posting from time to time. We all can, whether we’re bloggers or not.

– This year, after my Eastern and Central European road trip in January, I made it a point to focus on the organizational back-end of what is now Alyson Haley. I’ve been busy putting together new spreadsheets in place, organizing files, brainstorming new processes and employment positions with Justine, analyzing data and reader behavior from last year in an effort to learn what you want to see more of from me, and getting ready for this massive launch. I needed to take a step back and get those things in place without also committing to [and putting so much pressure on myself to] also have four or five blog posts up a week and multiple Instagram posts a day. Is that considered best practice? For some, yes. For me, yes … it is what I am aim for … as long as I’m not taking a step back to work on something that is more important in the long run [i.e. this new rebrand and site redesign] or brainstorming where we go from here, what’s next, etc. If we never take a step back from the day-to-day rat race that we always inadvertently fall back into, how can we ever move forward? There needs to be room for analysis and strategy and the room you make in your day, in your week, for that time to brainstorm has to replace something that is already a part of your everyday, unless you want to add another couple of hours to your workday … which, to me, screams burn out! Sure, it’s always hard to not be ‘on’ and posting as usual. Sharing what I’ve worked to create for you guys is one of my favorite parts of what I do but, I’ve learned that trying to do it all only leads to unhappiness and feelings of failure. You have to set realistic expectations but, as scary as it may seem, I can promise you that for every step back I’ve taken, there was a huge success that wouldn’t exist if the break hadn’t taken place. And, although I realize success isn’t everything, I can enjoy it because I made room for balance and realistic work flow. It might not be what everyone does but I’m convinced that my best work comes out of me allowing myself to take time away from what everyone else is doing.

Your worth does not equal the number that everyone else sees: I don’t think there is a blogger that exists that has ever NOT been negatively affected by their numbers before. Whether it’s the number of likes they’re getting on a photo, the number of page views they got last month on their blog or the number of people on Instagram who unfollowed them yesterday, numbers have made us feel invincible and they have made us feel like a failure. Numbers can have such an unfortunate power over us. I’ve seen it bring out some pretty ugly sides to bloggers. I’ve seen it dictate who certain bloggers will allow themselves to go on trips with or become close friends with. It’s so sad to me how it easy it can be to forget that these numbers do not equal our worth on a number scale and that these numbers do not make us better than any other individual. It’s important to remember that we’re all just human beings doing the same job, in our own way, to the best of our ability. So, why not just be friendly? Why look down on her because her influence and her Instagram feed aesthetic isn’t ‘as good’ as yours? Why only gravitate toward the people that can somehow benefit you? Why not tell her she’s doing a good job instead of seeing her as a threat or seeing her as inferior?

“I’m not interested in competing with anyone. I hope we all make it.” Erica Cook

Comparison is the thief of joy. If I had a dollar for the number of times I’ve had to remind myself of this. This is truly one of those things that everyone on social media had struggled with since having a social platform. It’s so easy to see what looks good in everyone’s lives that it’s hard not to compare it to what you know is going on in yours. As many have said in the past, remember that everyone shows the highlight reel because, really, no one wants to read depressing or pointless captions about something that is really not that exciting or groundbreaking. Remember: No one is exempt from struggles, heartaches, frustrations, setbacks, etc. We all get them! And, as it pertains to blogging, what looks great in a photo isn’t always reality, so stop wishing you had certain parts of someone else! We’re all beautiful and need to be confident in that! If you’re struggling with comparison, unfollow accounts that make you feel insecure and put a few sticky notes up on your bathroom mirror with self-affirming quotes! And, don’t forget … you ARE awesome, brave, strong, bold and beautiful!

You can only do so much by yourself. It’s okay to open up and trust other people. There are good ones out there. I haven’t ever really been shy about the fact that the to-do list for a blogger is longer than one person can truly handle solely by themselves. Maybe it’s a bold statement. Maybe someone will comment and prove me wrong, but I’ll then ask what your house looks like and how much sleep you get each night. Just because you are running yourself ragged doesn’t mean you’re doing it right or you’re working harder.

I’ve learned that one of the best ways to move forward and get after the dreams you have for your blog is to find a team member to join you in going after those dreams. I hired my assistant, Justine, two years ago and it has been such a dream having her to work alongside. She is focused, rational, smart, and doesn’t get bogged down with the details. She is everything I’m not, essentially! It’s hard to believe there are people out there who want to work for bloggers who aren’t actually bloggers but, I can promise you there are, and I can guarantee you that this blog wouldn’t have ever of been able to expand into the travel vertical the way it has without Justine. This new website design wouldn’t exist, either. If you’re struggling with letting people into your circle and knowing what it takes to run a blog on the back end, consider letting someone in. It was one of the best lessons I learned [you’re only one person; you can only do so much] and one of the best business decisions I’ve made in the last two years!

Be sure to had back here on Wednesday! You’ll get to meet Justine!

 • Enjoy the journey. Like other jobs, blogging can be stressful and frustrating but it is also a huge blessing. Whenever you find yourself feeling a little down about something work-related, think back on all of the things you’ve been able to achieve professionally. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like enough so we have to keep working toward the next thing but, other times, it can be extremely fulfilling and encouraging to remind ourselves how far we’ve come! So, embrace and enjoy the journey!


When I started Sequins & Things in January of 2013, I was wrestling with feelings of sadness, of rejection and of loneliness. We all want to belong, feel validated and loved somewhere. It’s humbling to me that while I was crying out for connection while living in Denver, God heard those cries, brought me home and, in part, used this blog to give me just that. Of course, I have the love of my friends, family and church to thank, as well, but, this little space on the internet has helped me understand how truly freeing it is to feel like you have a place where you belong: where your thoughts on a topic matter, where your interests cause others to reach out and say ‘me too!’, etc.

Interestingly enough, during this time, I found my faith in Christ, which helped me know and understand that my worth cannot be found in the acceptance of other people. I didn’t realize it at the time but this lesson would be extremely helpful throughout my blogging journey, especially when it came to the numbers game. Needless to say, the beginning of 2013 was a very enriching time in my life and thinking back on how monumental and strategic the timing was in everything makes it even easier for me to believe that God had to of had a hand in everything.

All in all, this blog has been a blessing to me in many ways but realizing that God used it do immeasurably more than I could have ever asked or imagined is truly humbling. Five years in, I feel like He has me right where He wants me … connecting with you, sharing my life with you, etc. and I can’t wait to see what is on the horizon!

    About a year ago I unfollowed almost every single blog except for yours. I found I was spending too much time comparing myself to others and buying things to “keep up”. I also wasn’t getting anything else out of those blogs other than more stuff to buy. It wasn’t healthy. It was an easy to choice to keep reading you though. Obviously, your content is great (and I still buy stuff occasionally lol), but your genuineness and positivity just shines through.

      Wow, this means so much to me. I started feeling like a mannequin a couple of years ago and, it took me awhile, but I knew that I wanted to turn S&T [and now Alyson Haley] into a digital destination for a woman to find information she needs, an outfit to wear or just an encouraging quote to leave with. Your comment makes me believe that I am achieving that. Thank you! xo.

    Hi, Haley!

    I think a lot of women struggle with finding their niche and always trying to please everyone! This article is so relatable and I loved the way you wrote it! I think we, as women, don’t realize what we’re capable of, but also that we cannot do everything well and that we cannot do everything alone. But that just reminds me of the scripture reading “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 🙂 I don’t usually read a lot of the posts that bloggers write, but I really did enjoy reading yours. I hope everything goes well with your surgery! I’ll be sending some prayers your way. 😉

    I love the new blog design!! So beautiful. And I love everything you wrote ❤️, one of the many reasons I enjoy following you is that you are real and honest. It is very easy to get wrapped up in what we “see” on social media… perfect lives, homes, experiences but we all need to see the beauty in ourselves and our lives. My house is generally a disaster and there are most days that my kiddos are dressed cuter then I am 🤣 but I wouldn’t have it any other way, I get to be home and raise my 4 beautiful babes. Comparison is TOTALLY the thief of joy! Keep up the beautiful work!! XO!

      One of the great things about this redesign is that there is page that allows you to shop my looks from Instagram WITHOUT having to wait for an Instagram Round-up from me OR download the @liketoknow.it app. From the main homepage, hover over ‘SHOP’ in the top right corner and click on IG OUTFITS. That will take you to this page: https://alysonhaley.com/ig-outfits/

      Simply click on the outfit you want to shop and and the product you want. No sign-up necessary! xo.

    This is by far one of my favorite blog posts that you’ve done yet! I can’t say how much I love following you on Instagram and your blog. Anytime I DM you, you always come back with such a quick and helpful response. Although I have never met you, I feel like I have before! You are so real in all of your post, especially this one, and it’s so refreshing! You are so much more than just sharing the latest and greatest style (although, you rock at that too!) but you share about life, and dig deeper and I love you as a blogger for it. I am officially saving this post as a bookmark on my favorite so that I can refer back to it, when I need a little boost! I am a nurse in a NICU and you wouldn’t believe how much I can still relate to your post (nursing and non nursing). For example, the NICU isn’t always a happy place to be; babies are very sick, and it can get emotionally tolling watching parents sob and weap over their 1 lb “babies”, but on my lunch breaks, I can always count on a post about a cute outfit, or insta stories of your cute little furbabies, etc. from you to boost my mood! Thanks for being more than just a fashion blogger. You are such an inspiration girl! Keep it going!!!! XOXOX

Loved the refections and lessons from the past 5 years of blogging and definitely some great insights! You write in a way that is shares information but it feels like a chat with a friend (vs just someone on the internet). I can tell you really put your heart and soul into this and I pray as you pour into this, filling others buckets that God is filling your bucket to overflow. And this next season will be taken to even greater heights and that God will wow you in ways you never even imagined or dared to hope for. ❤️

    This is an awesome, reflective post! The part about stepping back from the day-to-day so you can move forward with your long term goals really resonated with me. Right now I am looking at Masters programs that would require me to move away and quit my job, which is a huge, scary step. But it’s true, if you don’t intentionally make time for long-term growth then it WON’T HAPPEN! You may not have taken the classes, but you’re a pretty sharp businesslady 😉

    This blog truly opened my eyes and allowed me to see that I’m not alone in feeling like I’m alone when surrounded by others. I’m currently in college to become an Special Education teacher and have always wanted to start a blog, but have been too scared to fail. I think this was the push I needed to know that if I want it bad enough I can get it. Thank you, I truly appreciate it.

    I work in the fashion industry, and I when I first started out, I often found myself comparing myself with everyone else around me. I’ve been following your blog for a few years now, and I’ve seen you talk about comparing yourself to other much like you did in this post. Can I just say how REFRESHING it is to see a blogger talk about this kind of stuff!! It’s a struggle so many of us face! Your content is amazing and that’s what initially drew me to your blog, but your dedication to your readers and your honestly through your posts is really what made me want to stick around. I think I speak for a lot of readers when I say how thankful I am for your openness.

      Aw, thank you Christina! Comparison is running rampant but we all live behind this facade that what we’re seeing on social media doesn’t bother us. It’s natural for it to exist but I think we need to be less ashamed by it and more motivated to DO something about it. Starting with just saying ‘hey, me too, guys’ was a natural first step for me, I guess. There isn’t anyone that looks at what they do and says ‘MAN, I’M BETTER THAN EVERYONE. I’M UNSTOPPABLE. LOOK HOW GREAT I AM.’, even Beyonce. I’m sure she is hard on herself, too. Hah! Anyway, thank you for sticking around. I’m happy to have you here. xo!

      I think so! Somewhere! Haha, I’ve always gone by Haley. My Mom and Dad made my brothers and I go by our middle names. No particular reason. Just something unique and different. Also, my Dad’s pick for my name was Alyson but my cousin’s name is Allison so my mom was like ‘no, she can’t go by Allison’ [even though my cousin goes by Misty lol *face palm*]. My Mom’s pick was Haley and she was pretty set on me going by Haley, and Alyson Haley [she thought] sounded better than Haley Alyson .. hah. So, that’s the long-winded story. I was painfully shy growing up so I always told her that I hated going by my middle name because I always one of the ONLY kids in class on the first day of school that had to actually say something other than ‘HERE’ during roll call. She was like ‘I think you’ll live’ 😉 Anywayyy, that’s that! xo.

    Alyson – Thank you so much for your vulnerable, beautiful post. I’m emerging through the woods of a personal life crisis I experienced this fall, and I can share in your joy that God truly does work all things together for our good. Ironically, my mom just said to me this morning, “Use the pain you experienced to keep embracing your faith with bravery. Witness and share this with others.” This blog post couldn’t have been timed more perfectly!

    I wish you continued success and blessings as you see what He has in store for your life. And again, thank you for sharing your journey with others <3

      Hi Bekah! I absolutely love that quote from your Mom. No terrible, heartbreaking, and brutal experience we walk through in this life will be in vain. It could be used to teach us something, to allow us to be a source of comfort to someone better in the future, or for our own well-being, even if it’s hard to see in the moment. Keep pushing forward, brave girl! You got this! Happy this post came at the best time for you today. xo!

    Over the last couple of years I have been following you through your blogging journey. As much as I don’t see my self becoming a blogger, I was very inspired by your story. I am actually a Trauma-Surgical ICU nurse right now and to have heard that you were previously a nurse I felt like I connected with some of your stories on a new level. I also appreciate your perspective on so many things. Your transparency with us as followers is so refreshing, because no matter how much we all try to have it all together and make life look easy, in reality it’s impossible. I look forward to following you through your journey and wish you the very best!

      Thanks Mikalena! We nurses certainly do have a connection don’t we? The line of work is unlike any other and, when I meet a fellow nurse, it’s like I have an immediate level of respect for that person, even if I barely know them, hah! Thanks so much for following along 🙂 xo.

    This is one of THE most easiest blogs I have ever navigated. I also love how you made your new website your name. Your name is such a unique thing to just YOU and this website is all encompassing of that. I especially love the travel posts and seeing all of the places you have been around the world. I know you have heard this a million times but CONGRATULATIONS! I built a website for my work and I know just how tedious that can be. You go girl, you rock! Ps my email doesn’t match my name because I am a newlywed and still like to keep my email as my maiden hehe #realtalk

I just turned 32 in February and I feel like it’s finally taken 32 years and becoming a mother to a baby girl to fully understand my self worth is not in the hands of other people.

Comparing myself to other Instagrammers and bloggers is something I have a really hard time with especially when I see the “follow” count change so dramatically in a day. So important to remember that we are all different and can bring something new to the table.

(I’m also the one who saw you at AB nails and didn’t say anything haha – scared much) and it’s amazing to see what someone can do even when there is fear rising. I think you’re one of the many few bloggers who ask our opinions and are afraid to take some time off for yourself because you don’t want to be greedy…and I am happy that we as readers agree that you’re not being selfish and to do you and recharge! Your time in London made for some wonderful content (IG stories and blog posts) and I as a reader learned more about you.

  1064. Love the post. I was sent to your blog via a friend who was kind enough to listen to me cry about the woes of the hush-hush blogging world. I am super new (7 weeks old) and I share many of your same feelings you had when you started. Thanks for sharing. You are such an inspiration. Love the site! XOXO- Marissa

    You have consistently been one of my favorite bloggers because of how you write from the heart! It is one thing to just write about an outfit, but when you get into more personal aspects of your life, it makes you so much more relatable!! Congrats on 5 years and here’s to many, many more!

  1073. Haley – I LOVE your blog! I have followed it for some time and I’m not even a fashion person! I just love who you are and what you stand for. I live in Colorado – and what I wouldn’t have given to squeeze and love you the way you deserved to be treated when you were here. Of course, as you said everything happens for a reason and God used that situation to absolutely bless you in the long run but I am so sorry you were treated that way.

    I am an aspiring blogger – just starting my blogging journey. You were so sweet to answer my question in one of your posts about which everyday tote to use as a blogging carry-all for your laptop and essentials. Thank you for taking the time to write your QUALITY posts! It’s been such a joy to follow you and gain such insight into your life and career.

    Thank you so much for this post and for giving us bloggers some great tips and encouragement as we navigate the blogging industry. God bless you Girl!

    Much love for Colorado! Xoxo
