2 Years & Counting...

Two years ago today I posted my first Blog entry...

What started out as a way for me to share my thoughts and showcase things I like, has now become so much more to me. This Blog is a conversation starter, has helped me get writing gigs, to now having people reach out to me to be featured on it. This Blog shows my growth as not only a writer but also as a person.

From making sure there is new content posted every few days to making sure it's visually appealing; in some kind of way my blog has become my little baby. Because it constantly need my attention, and I have to remained dedicated to it.

With the music and clothing posts, my thoughts on certain issues, and my personal stories; this Blog truly is about stuff I enjoy. My thoughts and opinions that are posted on here are really things I discuss with friends. Nothing I post on here is for attention or shock value. It's just me expressing myself through my passion of writing.

When I first decided to start this Blog I told myself I wanted it to grow organically and readers would support it simply because they like the content. I'm proud of myself for not wavering from my original intent. To this day I still only post things that spark a reaction and grab my attention, because I have to stay true to who I am.

In a previous post I wrote about being an inspiration through my writing. It's the best feeling in the world to receive emails from people I don't know telling me how much they enjoyed something I wrote or how I inspired them.

When you share your passion with the world you open yourself up to receive any kind of feedback, positive or negative. So I am very thankful that within the last two years I have received nothing but positive feedback about my Blog.

Thank you for supporting this Blog, reading my articles, and purchasing earrings. I'm working on several new ventures so stay tuned.
