Style Speaks Louder Than Words' 1st Birthday

According to my blog archive, my first ever post was on the 22nd April 2011 - so it's a belated blog birthday for me! What a year it has been. Before I started this blog, I ran a personal blog on Tumblr which I did enjoy, but to be honest, it was just hours of re-blogging random photos which didn't belong to me, and whilst I still wrote, it was just a 'what I've done today' sort of thing. At the time I was in my second year of university and wanted to branch out with my writing skills. And so I moved to Blogspot to get a fresh start. I'd also noticed that there seemed to be a bloggers community on here rather than just communicating through re-blogs like you do on Tumblr. It's obvious from my earlier posts that I hadn't a clue what I was doing, and I'm still learning now! But I like to think that I've grown and developed this blog into something better. Running this blog has not only enabled me to constantly practice my writing, but I also get to design which I love. 


However one of the most rewarding things about blogging is the people I've met. I've made some great friends and whilst I've said this about 10 million times, it's nice to have people who know what you're going on about. Take for example my dad, he still doesn't get the concept of outfit photos, I think he thinks I'm going loopy but my blogging pals understand. I see my blog as my outlet when I'm stressed, I get to write about fashion and beauty which are areas which I'll hopefully get a job in one day! While I'm no-where near 'big' in the blogging world, I appreciate every single person who reads or follows my blog.

So here's to another year. If it's anything like the past one's been, I'm ready for the ride!

Now you get to enjoy an amateur animation of me blowing out my candle. Yes, I'm a dork!
