I'm really quite terrible at remembering my blog's anniversary for some reason. I had it in my mind that it was in November when it was actally October. Anyway, I'm a month late but I still wanted to acknowledge the milestone since it's been two years that I started on this journey. I'm so happy to still be here and incredibly grateful for all the friendships and opportunities that blogging has brought me.
This has been such a fun creative outlet to share things that I love and I hope to continue doing it as long as I enjoy it. What I've learned is that blogging should never be a chore and you shouldn't be afraid to be yourself. The biggest compliment I ever get from people who know me is how my blog writing voice sounds exactly like me. I've really enjoyed getting to know you all through your comments here and your blogs and I find that to be one of the most rewarding aspects. I was seriously overwhelmed and touched by the generous outpouring of encouragement when I was ill last year. It meant the world and really helped me get past a pretty difficult time.
Another thing I've learned is that you just can't fake it when it comes to blogging. That's why to date, I've done exactly one outfit post. They're just not my thing but I will pop up here occasionally. Along the way, I've shown you all my bookshelf, the contents of my purse, the sweaters in my closet, and my abnormally large mitten collection amongst other things. I hope to get back to more of these posts soon and I also have a few new features planned. Is there anything you'd like to see more of?
I wanted to celebrate and thank my readers with a little giveaway. Up for grabs is a pair of BaubleBar Chevron Studs in Orange. If you'd like a chance to win these fun little pretties, just hit up the Rafflecopter widget below. This is an international giveaway that everyone is welcome to join. It's sponsored by me and will run through November 18th. Good luck!
