Time for a Celebration! {100th post}

July 6, 2012
Cue the lights! Drop the confetti! Pop the champagne! 
It’s my 100th post!! YAAAAAYYYY!

I had no idea what to write about to celebrate such a momentous occasion, but Betsy gave me the great idea of looking back at the most popular posts and my favorite posts.

But first, I’d just like to say… THANK YOU. Thank you for being awesome, amazingly devoted readers. Thanks for listening… err… reading my ramblings every day. Thanks for commenting, encouraging, tweeting, interacting. For everything you do, I thank you.

I never thought I’d get to where I am today. On the verge on 200 GFC followers, almost 600 followers on Twitter, 100 posts… it’s truly stunning to me how everything took off. Sure it took about seven months to do so, but it’s so worth it.

Without blogging, I would be a lonely girl in the world of Houston. Without blogging, I wouldn’t know about the latest fashion trends. Without blogging, I couldn’t buy a beauty product without being sure of the quality. Without blogging, I wouldn’t be able to express my thoughts, feelings, and opinions to the world, releasing them from inside.

Most of all, I cherish the relationships that I have built with each one of you. Even if we’ve only spoken once, I am thankful for everyone that I’ve met through blogging.

To the friends that I’ve gained through blogging, I really don’t know what I would do without you! You are truly irreplaceable.

Looking at my most popular posts, I have to say that I’m pretty surprised!

Most Popular:

#1: My Favorite Trend: Ikat

I’m pretty shocked that this post is my most popular, to be honest! This was a post that I threw together one day when I just needed to get something out there… plus, it only has 2 comments! What is it about this post that people love so much?

#2: Wedding Post: Fixed

This was actually a guest post that I did for another blogger! Unfortunately, due to my lack of experience, I didn’t realize that I needed to send HTML for the post instead of just words with pictures attached and the post didn’t turn out right at all. It shows different things that I believe to be the foundations of wedding planning.

#3: I am a D. I am a DZ.

Not only was the one of the most popular posts, but it was also one of my favorite. I wrote about the important of staying involved with your Greek organization for life. 

My Favorites:

#1: Why I Support Health Care Reform

Many bloggers don’t want to post anything political or controversial on their blogs. Understandable, but I’m not one of them. As a very opinionated person, I felt it was necessary to speak on an issue that so closely affected my family. Not everyone agreed with me, and that’s okay. I even had some great political discussions because of it. But I’m very glad that I decided to post it.

#2: Some Inspiration

This is the first post where I laid it all out and just wrote. I feel so much better when I do that! I had just finished reading Jen Lancaster’s Bitter is the New Black and she inspired me to start being myself on my blog.

#3-5: Wedding Posts: Before the Ceremony, Ceremony, Reception

This was such an important event in my life that I wanted to share it with everyone! I broke the day down into three posts, all of which I loved. I still get chills looking through the posts!

So here’s to another 100 posts! If my calculations are correct (*pushes glasses up nose*) then I’ll probably hit 200 around Christmas time. Let’s make these next 100 even better than the last!
