"I started Ooooooo La La!  so I could have a place to voice my own opinions and not have an editor chopping up my writing. Even when others said, 'you're just wasting your time with that' or 'but, there are so many other blogs out there already' ... I didn't listen to them, and I continued on blogging. This blog is my baby, it's my passion, and I've managed to build up my own brand, all by myself, which has turned into a small side business. So, never listen to the doubters! If you have passion, if you're focused, and if you believe in yourself that you can do anything, you'll succeed!"
