My One Year Blogiversary!

 I can’t believe that a year ago I was writing and publishing my first blog post! I started my blog because I wanted a creative outlet where I could share my love of fashion. I wanted to make posts that would inspire readers on their personal wardrobe. With every new post, I learned what it takes to become a blogger and how I can make my articles better that the last one.
I was expecting that just my parents and my friends would read my blog. It’s pretty crazy the amount of support that I’ve received about my site. It’s been way more than I ever expected! It is heartwarming to read all of the positive feedback through the comment section, emails, and messages. I am so grateful for the people I’ve been able to connect with, and who I now consider my online friends. You guys inspire/push me to come up with new and exciting content. It makes the hours I spend working on blog posts 100 percent worth it. Your support of my blogging journey means more to me than you guys know.  I look forward to coming up with new outfit ideas and future posts! This year, my goal is to take my site to the next level!

Here are some of the things that I have planned for my blog in 2015 (so far)
1.) Start posting more frequently-  This is definitely the number one thing I will work on. Last year, I was crazy busy with school and extracurricular activities that I didn’t get to post nearly as much as I wanted to. I will get more organized this year where I will have a more consistent schedule with my blog posts and balance both school, extracurriculars, and blogging in a more consistent manner.  
2.) YouTube Videos- One thing that I am really excited to start is YouTube videos! I have some video ideas that I can’t wait to share with you guys in the near future!
3.) A New Blog Layout- New year, new blog layout. I am working on a new template for my website where you guys can easily access my content.
4.) ………AND SO MUCH MORE! ( Stay Tuned!!)
