Making the decision to create and launch my very own website was/is probably my hardest personal decision. Even after successfully buying the domain and hosting, I felt stuck for the first two weeks. Mostly because it’s one thing to fail at something when you’ve not really committed yourself and pretty much no one knows you. And it’s a different and essentially more hurtful ball game to fail at something after committing yourself and biting the bullet. However, like I’ll always say:
‘What’s Life Without A Little Risktaking?’
If you’ve been following my social media accounts for a while then you’ll probably have noticed my change and growth in the less than a year I’ve been online, most especially the name change from ‘quirksandoutfits‘ to ‘vincentdesmond‘. The name change met with a lot of people saying it was a wrong move as an online brand but the reason I stuck with the name and also adopted it as the name of my website is quite simple: I felt like while quirksandoutfits was a great name, it didn’t quite express how I wanted my website and brand to be perceived. And using my name gives me the feeling that this online space is truly and totally mine to do with as I please and express myself in totality.
Welcome To Vincent Desmond.com
I’ll like to first of all say, Welcome to Vincent Desmond.com – an online platform to share my personal style, faith, lifestyle and life in a city in Nigeria that doesn’t quite get enough online credit.
Here are a few things you should probably know about Vincent Desmond.com
Content: I plan on creating and curating content focused on Fashion, Lifestyle, Port Harcourt Living, grooming and faith all based on my experiences and perspective.
Schedule: I’ll hopefully have a new post up every Monday and Thursday. While I personally want to be posting thrice weekly or more but Twice weekly is probably the only way I’ll be able to have quality content up without having to constantly apologize for missing my posting days.
Affiliate/ Shopping Links: While I don’t shop online regularly and mostly only do so when it’s being paid by mum or it’s my only chance at a particular item, I’ll be adding these links to make it easier for you to shop pieces or products I wear and review respectively if you like them so much.
Brands: I’m putting this out there for both my readers and brands out there that while I am open to working with Brands and will take compensation for posts and Social media ads I will only take deals that fit my brand’s aesthetics, I will reject and accept collaborations from brands as I see fit, and every post with sponsored content will be marked with an asterisk (*) and/or will have a disclaimer at the bottom or top of the post.
I’m extremely glad and excited i’ve gotten to this place in my creative journey and I’m even more excited for what the future holds for my brand and content. And I’m certain I would never have gotten here if it hadn’t been God, you amazing people who stayed engaged to my content, my few but amazing friends who make me feel like I can do anything especially Collins.
Thank you and welcome, I promise it’s going to be an amazing journey. So help me God.
What do you guys think of the name change? And what sort of content would you guys like to see from me?
