It may be a Monday, but today is a special day for me! Today – January 30 – marks one year of My Styled Life and all I can say is wow…what a year! While I blogged before My Styled Life (read some background on that here), when I started MSL last year I had no idea what was in store for me. Over the past 365 days I have worked with so many amazing companies and brands, connected with some of the most inspiring bloggers, and learned a lot about myself.
So many windows of opportunity have been opened for me as a result of this blog and while I could take all the credit that wouldn’t be right because my success is not solely a result of my own doing, it is a result of YOU! It is a result of you taking the time to read MSL, keep up with all my adventures on social media and support me even when I’m busy and have to take a few days off from blogging. Because of you, I’m able to pursue something that I’m so passionate about, something that is very time consuming, yet never feels like “work.”
I want to thank you for all the lovely comments you leave here and on my social media accounts – especially Instagram, the DMs, the emails…all of them. While I’m not able to respond to every single one because I’m only one person, I do take the time to read all of them and I cannot count the number of times that one of your comments has brightened my day.
Despite what many people think, blogging is not easy. I don’t just snap a photo, type a little blurp and boom there’s a new blog post. It takes hours and hours of work for one post and some days I do get discouraged, but reading your kind words always inspires me.
The celebration of my one year blogiversary will continue all week so make sure to subscribe to MSL by entering your email in the sidebar! That way you will be the first to read my upcoming posts!
p.s. How cute would this dress be for Valentine’s Day?!
Thanks for reading!
