Hello, my Pretties!
Happy New Year!!!
Oh, my gosh, another year has come and gone. It's no joke when people say times flies. It really does. So much happened last year, some good...some not so good. A majority of it not so good. But the one good thing that did happen to me in 2011 was the start of this here blog. Today I celebrate my BLOGGERVERSARY!
I remember doing my very first blog post. I was so scared and nervous. But I wanted it so bad so I did it anyway! I remember posting it and hoping I had done it right since I had never done anything like it before. I remember waiting to see if I would get a subscriber. And I finally did. Kristen of Kristen for President was my first subbie and first one to leave a comment on my blog. Thank you, Kristen for giving me a chance!
And the same goes to all of you who took the time to read my blog and comment. I know most of you read it and don't comment. That's OK. I write the blog for you. I know I don't have such amazing EOTDs or really helpful tips or tricks or anything like that. I'm always the last to get the "latest in thing" in makeup but you guys don't seem to mind. I don't have a grand collection of high end makeup either but a lot of you seem wowed by the fact that I can create a decent FOTD using dollar store makeup! You guys never judged me or ever threw me aside for the makeup I chose to use or the opinions that I had. Thank you!
My blog still continues to be a work in progress, even a year later. There is so much that I am learning from all of you still. I've seen other bloggies start their blogs after me and surpass me in subscribers and then those become my inspiration to keep pressing forward.
Thank you all for sticking by me through blog post after blog post and then times when I didn't blog at all.
I apologize for lack of experience and sustenance. I'm sorry for less than impressive swatches and unattractive photos of myself. I'm sorry for lack of reviews as well as lacking to use a menagerie of products. But I'll never be sorry for embarking on this fascinating and fulfilling discovery.
You all have given me more support, respect, love, and friendship than I thought I could ever receive from human beings I have never met in person. You guys have been a rock for me. A teacher. A best friend. Nothing is stronger than the bond of makeup addicted junkies! We speak an entirely different language than most of the human race. It is an understanding that is to be admired.
No matter what, you all have made this blog what it is today. You all keep me going every day. You all are my motivation and my inspiration. You all will never know how in debt I am to you for fulfilling a dream come true. I know the word "love" gets tossed around more than is necessary but I will wholeheartedly and honestly say, I genuinely love each and every single one of you for your unfailing support.
And just for fun, I decided to share with you all, again, my very first blog post from way back on Januray 1, 2011. How ironic that the title was On Cloud Nine. Tonight, I am definitely on cloud nine! My wish did come true. As of right now, January 1, 2012, at 11:37 p.m., I have 201 subscribers! You see why you guys mean the world to me!
I promise that I will do what I can to keep you all reading and coming back for more. I will never promise to be the best or better than anyone else, but I will promise that I will do what I love to do for as long as I am able to and try my very best to do the job well.
A million times thank you for being a part of me.
Luv & Luk,
