Three years ago today I launched my first blog post here on TTS! I never would have imagined that a random idea to start a style blog would have led me to today, three years later, still in love with taking pictures of what I wear and posting it for the world to see. Back when my mom was the only one commenting I wasn't sure it was worth it (I still struggle with my own self-worth in the blog world). Gaining confidence in the blog world is difficult. There are so many blogs out there now and the community has grown exponentially! Guys and gals are actually getting paid for blogging-- that's crazy y'all.
The relationships I have developed over the last three years would never have happened without this blog. I would not have gotten involved with NOLA Fashion Week, which is one of my favorite things that has come out of this! I would not have been able to spend a Blogger Bling Ring Weekend with Dani, Bekah, & Sarah. I would not have had the opportunity or gumption to apply for my internship at College Fashion. I would not have met my favorite local bloggers who have become my real friends and not just my blogger friends.
But most of all, I would not have had the confidence to do what I love, focus on it, and leave behind things I thought I was passionate about. This blog has become what I am passionate about. I love waking up in the morning and planning my posts for the week and figuring out which outfits I want to wear. I love editing my photos. I love doing photoshoots with my mom because 1) pro bono and 2) I like her. I love having the space to show who I am to more than just my fellow grocery store shoppers.
So thanks for reading, newbies and veterans. I appreciate you.
