I stopped…

I stopped

I stopped blogging for Femstrong two years ago. I know. I know.

Bad Madison.

I stopped because I met someone, and I felt like Femstrong was only for badass independent…single…ladies.

I stopped because I didn’t feel strong anymore.

I stopped because I didn’t have the answers like I thought I had when I first started the blog.

But mainly, I stopped because I didn’t have anything to say.

I stopped because I didn’t know where I wanted Femstrong to even go. And if you don’t know where you want something to go, then how is it supposed to get there??

I stopped and then 2020 happened. Where I went into the year feeling all kinds of confident and successful, like I knew how to navigate this new world we’ve created for ourselves, like I knew how to make this business thing WORK, like I could handle it.

But instead of having ANY fucking answers at all, I’ve really just been throwing a bunch of shit at the wall with nothing sticking.

2020 has been a year of frustration. A year of defeat. A year of negativity. A year of BULL SHIT.

BUT. It’s not done yet. 

And just because I stopped blogging for Femstrong 2 years ago doesn’t mean I can’t start blogging again.

Why the fuck not? 

It’s my blog. I make the rules.

Even if I don’t have a destination in mind for the blog…why not just mindlessly wander for a bit?

Because I miss this journal style of blogging. I miss being able to talk about what I’m up to without having to fit into this “professional box” that I have created for myself with my photography business. I miss saying what I actually mean.

I miss having the freedom.

And I miss feeling strong.

Sooooooo, with all of that said – I’m back, baby. The map is out the goddamn window. Sure…Femstrong IS about divorce, independence, body positivity, feminism, and being a strong ass woman.

And it’s about whatever else I feel like writing about.

I never said I had all the answers.

I just said I’d be real.

Till next time.


hey I’m Madison!

I’m a 29 year-old divorced wedding photographer (gotta love the irony there). This is my journey to becoming an independent and badass chick, who refuses to settle. Travel, money, divorce, sex, and all the emotional shit that comes in between.... Maybe, in the past, these are topics I would have tried to sweep under the rug, but I figured it was time to stop apologizing for who I am and what I like. That’s part of being FemStrong.
