Happy Holidays, Happy Birthday. A whole lot of celebrations going around here my flaneurs! A year ago this day, I posted my first outfit post. It has been a long journey, and I have all of you to thank for reading my blog and your kind words that keep me going. It seems as if it was just yesterday that I was struggling to learn html to code my website. Sleepless nights, frustration of many whys. Why are my widgets not being aligned on my page, why is there a border around my pictures as soon as I publish a post? Why are my viewing numbers so low? Being a blogger is no easy business. From freezing outside in the winter just to capture one good shot to raining when you really need to shoot for next week’s post.
No one prepares you for what lies ahead. Through trial and error as a blogger you learn, and one way or another you also grow as your blog grows too. “It takes time” everyone will say, so cliché you will think, because you need advice to grow and you need it now! But my blogging experience taught me that there is no magic recipe to success. Numbers will also cloud your creativity. Blog with your readers in mind, and don’t look at your numbers. Others will say numbers matter, and of course they do. You want to see your blog grow, but don’t make it your only priority. Creativity merges from enjoyment, not numbers.
I am so thankful for your support, and as a thank you, I have many exciting giveaways coming up this month. Make sure to follow me along on Instagram as well as many giveaways will be conducted through there.
Can’t wait to see what the year ahead holds! Thank you!
