Happy (belated) Birthday Blog!10:30 AM
2009 was a big year for me, I had finally graduated from Oakland Community College and was starting classes at Oakland University in the fall. I was working full time, and taking three college courses, while also trying to do all the normal life things like eat, sleep, and bathe regularly. Oh and I also brought home a puppy that spring. I am not sure why I thought starting up a blog in the middle of all of that was such a great idea at the time, but on October 6th, 2009 I wrote my very first blog post. It was about my shitty car.
Eventually, this blog morphed into what it is today: a melting pot for all of the things I think are pretty cool. Everything from personal style, to Doctor Who. I am a person with many, many interests, which has lead me to follow several different types of blogs. Foodie blogs, high fashion blogs, product review blogs, fanfic blogs, and the hodge-podge blogs like my own. Through these blogs I have met some amazing people, the first being Lauren. Lauren was the gateway drug to other bloggers, and through her I soon met so many amazing other bloggers, several of them I feel quite comfortable with calling my friends.
There are also several others who I have never met but talk to through blogging, Facebook, twitter, etc. almost daily. I love interacting with these people and keeping up with what is going on in their lives, which can sound really strange, but it isn't at all.
Some of my favorite memories of the recent past have involved bloggers. From fashion shows, to thrifting, picnics, and clothing swaps, all really good times. Tiffany and her sister Whitney accompanied me to
stalk meet Hiddles in Detroit last summer. Lauren flew up from California to stand up in my wedding. Blogging/online friends are real friends!
Although I know that this blog will never be a "big" blog, I still enjoy blogging. I am sure to forget to proofread posts, forget to post actual posts, see typos/mistakes weeks later and go back and correct them even though no one else cares, etc. Blogging is an outlet for me, as well as being a sort-of scrapbook for all of my other interests. I can't believe that I have actually stuck with it for four whole years, but then again, I can be a creature of habit. So thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this blog! I appreciate all of the comments, feedback, and emails I get from you guys. You are all so awesome and amazing :D
