This first year has been a mix of highs and lows. I didn’t make it “big” my first year blogging. I don’t regularly receive polish from nail polish makers (indie or mainstream) to demo on my site, and I still have far under 500 followers (I don’t know why, but that was my target). However, in this past year I have found a wonderful community of other women passionate about art, nails, and shiny things. And it has been FUN. And more than that, it has given me a vent for what would otherwise have been a very frustrating first year of graduate school!
A few statistics (I like math…):
# of polishes: 151
# of wordpress followers: 156
# of bloglovin followers: 56
# of facebook followers: 34 (ok, so maybe that’s sad)
# of posts: 234
In honor of this momentous occasion, I’m going to contrast a few of my older and newer designs (I wanted to do something new that was old…but of course with the 31 Day Challenge I just ran out of time!).
I will also, FINALLY, be doing two giveaways! The first will start tomorrow and run for two weeks (check back tomorrow for details) and the second will start when the first one ends. My first giveaway will run for two weeks, and will celebrate nail friends. The second one will also run for two weeks, but will be a nail art contest for my followers (because let’s be serious, that is FUN).
So, happy blogiversary to me, feel free to peruse my memory lane, and check back tomorrow for the giveaway post! 😀
