A large milestone has occurred today. Today is the two-year anniversary of Fashion teal. I feel like it was just yesterday I was announcing the one year anniversary, hoping to be around for another year, and here I am! Time does fly when you're having fun, and blogging has certainly been fun.
First and foremost, I'd like to thank my constant, steady flow of readers, some who have been here since day 1. You know who you are. Thanks for letting me and my little blog live through another year. Your support has done more than you can imagine. Whether it's reading, commenting, or emailing me, every gesture you make is meaningful to me, and has been for the last two years.
I remember my very first blog post back in 2014 exactly two years ago. It was a mess. But that's okay! I was new to the blogging world, having got my account back in July. It would take some time for me to get to where I am now, and I know that as I grow as a person, my blog will be growing alongside me. So for you aspiring bloggers who are only dreaming of starting a blog but worried about the process, don't worry! You'll probably start off a little clunky, but as long as you put your blog out there via social media (I found that Bloglovin' really helped my blog get views) and word of mouth, you'll get views in no time!
I'm just glad to have found blogging. It is a hobby of mine, just like sewing or following the latest trends in the fashion world. It's a place to write my thoughts out and express how much I adore fashion. Without my blog, I wouldn't have a place to ramble on excitedly about my successes, DCFW and the fashion show I put on at my school as examples. Blogging is a great place where birds of a feather can freely flock together and loudly squawk (keeping up with my bird metaphor) about fashion trends. It's a pretty cool place on the Internet, and I'm glad to have established my own place that has been standing for two years.
I know, as I said last year, that I have plenty to improve. I'll never not be moving forward as I blog. I'm proud looking back, but I know that with looking back comes looking ahead to see what I can do better in the future. Most people would shy away from it, but I am ready to face what comes with a determined attitude. Two years of blogging has taught me a lot. One of the lessons that I have learned is that while I may have goals, it will take some time to get there, and that's okay. I'm not near my goal yet. Not close. But, it can happen, and I choose to believe that it will. I'll just keep doing what I do and get better while doing so.
So, two years. I'm happy. Thank you to everyone who has been with me on this journey, and I look forward to letting Fashion teal expand for years to come. Wonder where I'll be in another year, or two. Wonder where Fashion teal will be at year 10?? But for now, two years is good for me.
