Yesterday was my blog’s 7th birthday! Thank you so much for reading The Fat and Skinny on Fashion for Seven Years. I can’t even believe it. I really can’t. When I started the blog during the first semester of grad school the Obama’s were just entering their first year in office. I never knew I would still be writing this thing for so many years. I am so thankful for my readers and fans. I am so happy with how far I have come with this blog. I have finished two degrees, gone to several fashion weeks, made so many friends, and had so much fun! Here’s to many more!
Sorry if I have been somewhat inconsistent with the blog. I have been thinking of taking the blog back to the way it used to be, but most importantly I’ve been working hard on school work. I am in Collections class now, so I will be showing several garments for my first fashion show at school in March. The pressure is on. I have redone one garment so many times. I have literally remade the pattern and then sewn the dress in muslin like a million times. Please bear with me while I try to get my fashion education on! Thanks. Photo from here.
I can’t believe it. The Fat and Skinny on Fashion Blog is six!! The little blog I started as a hobby and then became my graduate thesis project is growing up. I am so proud of my baby. Because of my blog, I have gone to various fashion weeks-including New York Fashion Week, met a lot of cool people, and made some awesome friends. I have experienced so many wonderful things because of my blog that I would have never dreamed of doing.
Happy 5th Birthday The Fat and Skinny on Fashion! I am so proud of what you have become. I started this blog as a graduate school project 5 years ago today. I still can’t believe I have stuck with it. This blog has helped me graduate from graduate school, meet new people, and learn new skills. I am a computer whiz now!
Fashion website StyleSayshas just launched a feature for style bloggers that not only helps them post their blog posts to multiple social media sites at once, but also lets them make money from the service as well. The feature was released Monday and lets you publish your blog posts to Blogger, WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Lookbook, and Chicisimo. The new affiliate program lets bloggers share items, and when someone purchases that item, the blogger makes some money. StyleSays is really trying to revolutionize fashion blogging.
This past Saturday, before I went to the SC. State Fair to see The Roots perform an awesome concert, I went to the Carolina Bloggin’ at Gervais & Vine. The food was amazing, the speakers were amazing, and the sponsors were amazing. Thanks Firefly Vodka and thanks That Teowonna for holding this wonderful event again. I got to meet some new bloggers and see some old friends. If you have just started a blog, or have had one for quite some time, go to a blogging conference. They are so much fun, you get a wealth of knowledge, and you get to meet a bunch of great and awesome people.
