A Year of Blogging

I’ve been going through another uninspired patch – I seem to go through them every few weeks, or so* – but today is my one year blogiversarsy so I thought I should really post something!

Source unknown.

I can’t believe this blog has been going for a whole year already – sometimes it feels like I just started it yesterday (and sometimes it feels like I’ve been blogging forever); I’ve had a lot of fun blogging and I’ve made some fantastic friends. I’m not going to pretend it doesn’t do rather well for my ego, at times, too.

After posting outfit images on wardrobe_remix for a while I thought I may as well give blogging a go – I thought of it as another creative outlet for me and a good way to document my outfits and share things I love with others – that is why I started the Silver Screen Sunday posts and I hope to start doing them again soon. And it’s basically been a whole lot of fun, too (repeating myself, aren’t I?)

I never expected it to get so much attention and I’m grateful for every single person who follows and comments on my blog. Even though I’m rather lazy about replying to comments each and every one means a lot to me! I don’t want to blabber on too much, but I wanted to take the opportunity to thank my readers. I also have a lovely surprise in store in honour of my blogiversary but that will have to wait just a little bit longer.

I was going to look at my favourite posts, perhaps, but I thought it might be a little too self-indulgent (read: I'm actually too lazy to do anything more reflective than what I've already written) but feel free to tell me yours, if you have one. Hehe.

* I actually have a lot of ideas for posts, right now, it’s just a matter of finding the motivation to do them properly – I don’t like to go into them half-heartedly. And I’ve come to accept that one will feel uninspired every so often and, as I started blogging for fun, it’s best to let it come naturally (or as naturally as it will). 

Thanks again, everyone! Here's to another year of blogging fun.

P.S. Remember my We Love Colors post? Well, I forgot to mention they're offering free shipping to Australia and NZ for orders over 30$ until the end of August - the promotional code is WELOVENZAUS.

    I wish the We Love Colors code was for the US.. I actually never even heard of them until I saw your post, and ended up ordering four pair of colored tights and now I want more! lol :)
