A Blog Anniversary


I seem to have a bit of a blindspot when it comes to remembering this blog's anniversary for some reason. This year I'm about two month's late and since it is the third one, I did want to acknowledge it as I'm happy to still be here. I realize I can be a little all over the place with my post topics but that is a reflection my interests. I tend not to get too personal cause I have no intention to use this space as my diary and my everyday life would probably be quite boring to read about. I'm thankful for this blog as it has been a creative outlet which has allowed me to express, learn and connect with so many incredible fellow bloggers and readers. I went back into my archives and pulled up some of my earlier favorite posts and I hope that you'll visit one that catches your interest and come back to let me know your thoughts on it. One of the best things about this blog is having you all share your perspectives with me.

Morning Rowena and happy blog anniversary! Oh wow, third year? Well done, to many others to come! I just think the same of blogging, I think yours just perfectly reflects the person behind it, full of interests, nice and sweet :) I remember many of the posts you picked, Rena and Ian are so cute, you should keep to tell their stories!:) And the one I like most is your outfit, you are very stylish and lovely!:) Have a good week ahead and happy December my friend, many hugs! xo

Happy blog anniversary from me too! If only I had found your blog earlier... I understand you about the personal posts... I didn't want to do it on my blog, but somehow it did happen. Anyway. So, you've been blogging since 2012? Nice, me too :) I really like your blog as it covers many topics and every post is different and interesting. From your favourite above I really liked the NYC in snow photos! You should make it again this winter! And I can see from your book shelf why you are so good in photography! I really like the "eye candy" posts, whether it comes to women, or men! Ah, I almost forgot - you should do more "dine out" posts and outfit posts as well! Once again, I find your photos great and they inspire me and give me ideas! Happy Monday, Rowena! xo

Congratulations on your blog anniversary! For my first couple of blog anniversaries I forgot the date too (actually, I don't even think I made a post for my second year anniversary). These things tend to sneak up on you lol!

Corinne said...

I always miss mine too, I think I had my second year not long ago.

Congrats on 3 years :)

Happy blogging anniversary!! I am the same—my anniversary just sneaks up on me. Three years is a lot to celebrate though! It's a lot of work, but if it's what you love then it's all worth it. I really love following along with you! Here's to another great year :)

JeannLiew | Luminnej said...

rowena, congrats on your anniversary!!

After discovering your blog last year, I have come to truly enjoy reading your blog posts. Your little "all over the place" is just to show how wide your interest areas are and I think that's a good thing! So much more to read and discover, for me *_^

Am so glad you recap your old blog post because they are really awesome. I love the chanel exhibition one as the styling for all are so inspiringly beautiful. It's amazing how just a LBJ can do to a person's look, if done well. It must have been quite an experience, being there in person to take it in, all. Nothing beats being there! Like watching a concert sort of feeling.

Your NYC snow captures are truly marvelous! I know by now you have a love/hate relationship with it, am sure I would probably feel the same if I ever stay in NYC, haha. Not that fun when it's slippery and dirty *_^ But having said that, you captured the most beautiful side of snow.

I love White Collar series too! They are so suave and cool looking *_^ Looks like we share about the same taste when it comes to men *wink wink*

Your food captures always make me want to eat even more! haha (not good for my waist line, heehee).

Of course, I absolutely love your eye candy posts, that is what got me started my version of star gazing, though yours are way better, I feel.

Above all, I truly treasure the "virtual" friendship that I have come to experience, exchanging ideas and thoughts for things that we both love and passionate about, reading about each other's life experiences along the way. I guess that's what blogging is really all about after all, connecting with light minded fellow bloggers and hopefully, cementing a long lasting friendship along the way!

Congrats again and keep the good work coming *_^ Hope this virtual friendship will turn into a real one, when we finally meet face to face one fine day! yay.

Have a great week ahead.

Big hugs,
Jeann

Happy blog anniversery...so your blog is a toddler now:) Many happy returns<3!
I think my thirst anniversity is about this time (maybe it even passed already) too!

I think that there is no need for us to make our blog fit some norm...I like and read all kinds of blogs, not just ones that focus on one subject...and on my blog I post about whatever I feel like posting.

Aww happy 3 years on blog land! You're just like me. My 3rd was last month and I am yet to do anything special. Was thinking of maybe doing something next month though since it's the silly season and I don't think I'll have the time to do something with a bang!
