I’m beyond excited to be celebrating my 1st year blogiversary!! I can barely believe it has already been a year. It feels like just yesterday I set up my website, wrote my first blog post, and struggled with tagging my outfit details. I can’t wait for what’s to come. As it is I’ve been really lucky to have had a couple of great opportunities come my way within this first year. So I can only dream bigger and imagine what we’re going to be involved with in our second year. I am so grateful you guys have embraced me and my blog.
As I’ve mentioned it before, my blog has been a dream come true. I wanted to start one since I was fourteen, but I was too afraid to go through with it. I was embarrassed to put my feelings out there for people to read, I wasn’t sure my style was worth following, and to be really honest I wasn’t sure I was pretty enough to become a blogger. Yet, last year I decided to get rid of all those inhibitions. I saw sooo many girls and guys pursue their blogging dreams online, so I figured I could do it too. That’s when I took the plunge and went for it. I talked to the two people in the world I am closest to about it, my middle sister and my boyfriend, and no one else. They encouraged me to go for it right away and have supported me so much within this first year. They give me advice when I ask for it and they always help me decide which pictures to post on Instagram when I can’t make up my mind. It’s very important to surround yourself with people who believe in you and will support your dreams even if they don’t really understand what you’re doing. My business partner and boyfriend has helped me so much within this first year that I can’t thank him enough. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t even have a blog to begin with. He motivates me to do better each day, has taken all my pictures since day one, and has been there to give me the best pep talks on the many occasions I’ve had meltdowns and have been ready to just give it all up. I am so appreciative to have someone like him motivating me everyday.
In my personal life I’m a bit of a loner. I don’t have many friends and I spend the majority of my day alone. Yet, my blogging journey has allowed me to meet so many people from the Los Angeles area where I’m from, to girls across the country, to many others around the world. We have been able to create such beautiful connections, you guys are now my new friends and family. I feel like the luckiest girl when I read the daily comments you send me, emails you write to me, and now even watching the snaps you make for me on Snapchat (@posh_scene). Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and for following my daily adventures on Instagram.
For this upcoming year I’ve decided to launch a YouTube channel. I think having a channel will help me connect with you guys a lot more, as you’ll be able to hear my voice and get to know me better, and in turn I’ll get to know you too. I definitely want it to be personal and very interactive. So stay tuned! Great things are happening and I can’t wait to have you be a part of it.
