Sorry the quality isn't amazing, It was taking forever to upload so I resized it! Better than before though hey!
So yes! As the title suggests my blog is THREE YEARS OLD. I literally can't believe I've made it this far to be honest. There has been highs and lows over the last few years in my life as well as on the Internet Surprisingly my blog has always been the one constant thing in my life. When I dropped out of university and moved home I was so lost and downhearted about my life and the direction of what I wanted to do. I ended up going to the local art school where they asked us to create a blog and post on it regularly. Im sure they wanted me to go in the art direction but I ended up doing Fashion stuff. So I did, and from then on I got addicted to the online world of blogging. When I started blogging outfits around the beginning of 2009 I never really thought it would mean anything. At the time no one really did high street blogging so I felt a bit out of place. Flash forward to now and there are so many amazing high street fashion blogs written by girls like me who like clothing but don't necessarily have the money to prance around in hundreds of pounds worth of clothes each day!
Blogging overwhelms me most of the time. Like I said I never expected to become a "professional" or "full time" blogger (not that I agree with that title), it was just a hobby that grew beyond my wildest dreams. I feel incredibly privileged to be who I am today. I really want to make it clear to everyone, no matter how "big" or "small" in the blogging world is that you mean something within the community. If you have no followers, then keep going until someone notices you! It takes ages to get followers, it's so rare they come over night. It is disheartening having no one read your blog, but you should write for yourself until then. I personally don't think there should be so much emphasis on getting readers. If you influence the number of people who do read your blog then that's better than having a bunch of empty faces in your Google Friend Connect. At the end of the day blogging is basically an online diary, and if people so happen to read it then thats the bonus.
I do just want to say a big thank you to you all for CHOOSING to follow my blog and read my posts. It really does mean the world to me, even though if Im not good at expressing it properly! My three year blog anniversary giveaway will be going up tomorrow and I can't wait to show you all as Im super excited about it!
