1000 Pageviews!

Well hello there!

I can't even believe I'm saying/celebrating this!

I started this blog a little over a month ago and I'm already at 1000 views!


I originally started this because I was tired of making YouTube videos on my iPhone. I'm pretty sure my iPhone was tired of me making videos with it.

I did 18 videos before I decided it just wasn't for me. The thing about doing videos is that you really have to take the time out to edit them and film them and prepare for them. Don't get me wrong, I loved seeing the end result, but it just wasn't satisfying to me.

Having the right equipment is something pretty essential for videos because if it's not quality enough, you're not going to get viewers or subscribers. It's also a pretty big disappointment when you spend days editing and filming to get 2 views.

That's why I love blogging. I can sit here in my pajamas with no makeup on, watching some Arrow in the background while talking about stuff that I love. Writing has always come easy to me which is why I prefer it much more. I also love how photography comes into play when blogging is involved. 

The real reason I actually started this whole "post something to the Internet where other people can find you" thing is because of Zoe Sugg. 

You might know her as Zoella, but she is a British YouTuber/Blogger who on YouTube alone has over 4 million subscribers! She comes across as this extremely relatable sister to her viewers and it inspired me.

That's why I had started a YouTube channel first. After watching her for months, I found out about her blog and how she started that first. I was curious and I'm pretty sure that I read every single post she had. 

While doing some videos for YouTube I decided to test out the whole blogging thing. And now here I am! I've stopped making videos on YouTube and I post here daily. 

I find it a lot easier to share a written post than a video one because it's not as embarrassing to me. I'm also really proud of myself once I finish writing a piece because I've always loved it.

Now that I've really kind of figured out where my passion is on the Internet, I'm more willing to post and to spend time on it. I kind of described this as a fashion blog with hints of other things, but in reality, it's just kind of become things I love mixed with random things that come to mind. 

I appreciate you reading this post, along with all of my other ones. I'd like to thank those of you that have subscribed (by clicking the link on the right hand side and entering your e-mail)! I'm going to set a goal for myself: to have at least 2000 pageviews by May 15th, along with at least 10 subscribers (currently at 4)!

Which means, I'm going to need some help from you! If you like a post enough and are willing to do so, share it on Facebook and/or Twitter! There's a little share button up at the top of the blog, just under the URL bar where you can chose where to share it! Also, if we are friends on Facebook, you can always just share my post!

Yet again, thank you to those that have read this blog and support me! I wouldn't be doing this if it weren't for you!
