Last night as I was making my way through my blog reading list, I was thinking about how wonderful it is that my blog reading list is completely unmanageable. As much as I liked being able to read every post from every blogger (as I could a year or so ago), I have learned to like it even more that there are undiscovered posts out there. The ones that slip by when I am trying to read on my little phone screen, or the ones by a blogger I haven’t found (yet) are gems that I hope to run across someday in the future.
When I first started reading perfume blogs, it seemed like the pool of existing and potential perfume lovers was finite. I don’t know why I thought this. Maybe it was because when someone new joined the community, s/he usually had a similar story of “I’m so glad I found all of you like-minded people.” It felt as though we were a scattered family who just had to find each other, and one by one we were.
But how silly! Of course people are falling in love with perfume every day, just like I did. People who never thought much about it before are smelling something so different/repulsive/entrancing that it causes them to Google “perfume different/repulsive/entrancing” and — poof! We all know what happens from there. (Spoiler alert: you will become obsessed.)
I’m curious. How do you feel about the perfume “pool” these days? How did you come to be here, or, have you brought anyone into the group lately? (I’m happy to say my mom is now a complete perfumista!)
