I wanted to take a moment to give a special thanks to those who participated in a blog ad swap with me this month. This was my first time trying something like this so I'm happy there was any kind of response. Truth is I don't get hundreds and hundreds of views a day. I'm happy just to get 100! I also don't use this blog to make money. I use it to promote my shop which in turn will make me money (I hope) but I'm not one to seek out paid advertising.
Of course I want this blog to be more than just my shop but sometimes I struggle with that part. I don't like to photograph myself much so you won't see many pictures of me wearing pretty dresses from Ruche, Shabby Apple & ModCloth - because I don't own any, I wish I did. I don't get to go on many fun weekend getaways because of budget restraints so I can't share any tales like that. I'm not a very good cook and I hardly ever get the chance to cook other than the weekends and even that is rare so I have no extravagant yummy recipes to share. I don't talk much about my boyfriend here because he's a very private person and I respect that. That birthday tribute I did for him last month is the most you'll probably get.
All I have are my shops, my blog reading obsessions, a day job I am desperate to get out of and my dreams which at times I think are too far fetched for me to reach. I'm trying to chip away at the wall I've built after previously being a little *too* open online years ago. I am not knocking any other blogs that may include the stuff I mentioned above because I love visiting them, my Bloglovin' account is full of them. Just bear with me while I continue to get comfortable with my online voice. :)
