“Fashion is so often presented in the culture as a thing of froth, which, of course, it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with care and a sense of values.” - Anna Wintour

3rd Year and 18th Day!
So...school has finally gotten so busy that I forgot to mark my blog's birthday, hence the ridiculous post title. I would have almost written off my own birthday (which is 4 days after my blog's birthday) if it weren't for my amazing friends who surprised me with a dinner while I was in the midst of completing a group project. So much love.
3 years. It's not really a special number. No one holds big celebrations for such an odd number. But to me, it's another year gone by that I've stayed true to who I am. Being in a business program, you learn a lot about self-marketing. You're told to use social media as a tool, to network, to find those connections that will open doors...and I sit there and think, sure, I can do that, but in terms of my blog, I will never use it as a catalyst towards exposure and fame. My blog is me, not a business.
If there's one thing that remains sacred, it's my blog. I will not worry about SEO, I will not create numerous social media outlets for my blog, and I will not post to become popular. I post for myself and I post from the heart. Recognition may be a result, but never the driver.
