Wow, it's crazy to me to think that one year has passed since I started this blog. One year since I decided to put myself out there for the world to see, mistakes and all. In this rollercoaster we call "life", creating a blog has been one of the best decisions I have made to date. I've been given amazing opportunities, met friends, made connections, and done things that I never thought I would do in a million years.
I started out by making this blog to give myself another outlet to share my life with the world-- and all the things I loved; beauty, fashion, lifestyle, travel, and more. From the moment I started I had a really positive attitude about everything, and was mostly just doing everything for fun. I had a love for getting my pictures taken and of course, shopping! I asked one of my best friends, Sydney, if she wanted to be my photographer and boy has it turned into a full time job! Sydney has already been to New York with me for fashion week as my photographer, and I think if you told both of us that when we started we would've laughed. I'm excited to see where else blogging takes me and also Sydney. Thank you a million gf!
Besides the fun photoshoots, blogging has definitely turned into a job. Don't get me wrong, I'm not making an full-time income with blogging yet. But it has gone from "for fun" to some business faster than I expected! With exploring blogging as a job, comes a lot of mistakes. I have no background in marketing or business, so I'm learning everything for the first time. With that being said, I'm still learning and I still have A LOT to work on. Thats the best part though, honestly. Its something that I'm interested in and I also get to learn and enjoy during my free time.
I wish I could do a really cool post on how I've been growing my blog, and tips and tricks with everything I do...but the truth is, I still need to learn a few things before then. It's a wild adventure and I'm so grateful that I took the first step to start blogging, because so far it's been a dream come true. To those who continue to go to my blog and read my posts, support me on Instagram, say kind words and encouraging things to me, I hope you know it doesn't go unnoticed.
Thanks for stopping by, and cheers to one year!
