Eco Warrior Princess was born from my need to share my complex thoughts on subjects I care deeply about: fashion, environmental issues, social justice, politics, you get the gist. At the time, the blogosphere was filled with many fashion and beauty blogs, but they were (and many still are) just aesthetically beautiful sites full of beautiful images of beautiful individuals posing beautifully editorial style at home or at some beautiful-looking location.
The fashion blogs particularly seemed to just perpetuate what I could find in magazines, minus the quality fashion journalism.
I am a lover of fashion, its history, but I also have varied interests. Limiting ourselves as women to the fashion, beauty and lifestyle ‘box’ is boring to me. I was intellectually unstimulated. I wanted to do away with that friggin’ box. That box was stifling. More depth and substantial discussions, less shallow and superficial ones. That’s what I was after.
My partner Ben encouraged me to start blogging. I credit him for the idea of launching Eco Warrior Princess. If he hadn’t suggested it and kept on my back about it, I would never have started it.
So, on the 5th of August 2010, Eco Warrior Princess was born. Last week we turned 8 years old! My goodness time has flown. Now you’re probably wondering why it’s only now I’m getting around to writing about this? One reason actually; we had partnered with an amazing brand to run a giveaway and out of common decency I didn’t want to detract from it by sharing our birthday news and giveaway bash. Yes, there is such a thing as manners, even in a social online world where the focus is often “me, me, me, oh, and here’s more of me” lol!
Anyway, here we are. We have come along way since those lonely and very quiet beginnings, we have seen and observed wonderful changes in the environmental and sustainability movements, covered many topical issues, contributed to many discussions, and shared news, stories, ideas, events and campaigns.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your ongoing support. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for you. Your emails, comments, messages, ideas, stories, donations, encouragement and criticisms, have helped shape the media brand you see today.
