It’s kinda strange in a “wow, fate is actually real” kinda way that today I randomly decided to find out what day/year (yes, I honestly had no idea) I started my blog. When I clicked to the “last” page at the bottom of my blog, I was actually shocked to see that, whoa, TODAY is my blogaverasary…and SIX years at that.
Strange again, it’s also Amber’s. Weird, I know.
I don’t even know what to say because my blog means so much to me, as do all of my readers. Back in 2006 it was still very risque to blog, especially when you work in PR and I actually got in trouble when my old company found out that I was writing for CollegeCandy.com. I didn’t care. Damn the man! I do what I want. My first post ever was about my quarter life crisis – hence, WHY I started this blog in the first place but guys, that was SIX years ago and you know what, I still have moments just like the moment I wrote about so many years ago. And that’s OK. I still don’t have tons of money or take fabulous vacations (or an “amazing” boyfriend, for that matter) but what I DO have is A LOT and I’m very greatful for all of it. When I started this blog at 23 I was absolutely freaking out and even though I still consider myself to be going through my own version of the quarter life crisis, I can say that I’ve learned a lot over the past six years and this blog was a big part of that learning. Over the past six years I’ve accomplished some amazing things that I’m just so proud of and I’ve managed to partner with brands that I truly believe in (Degree, Refine Mixers, Ralph Lauren Pink Pony, SoleSociety.com, Shape.com, etc.) – I wouldn’t have it any other way.
my first blog post EVER
So thank you for reading. Thank you for being a part of my journey with me.
