8 Month Update on 8.8

I just wanted to write a post updating you guys on some things that have happened recently or are going to be happening very soon! This will probably consist of me rambling about my “baby”, The Trendy Chick. If this is your first time on  my blog, welcome! But I would suggest you start out by reading some of my previous posts instead of this one.

I have gotten asked quite a few times Why I started blogging, so here is the short answer:
8 months ago it was a cold December evening. I was doing some shopping online and thinking about how I loved watching youtube fashion videos. I was thinking about starting youtube, but I didn’t have a good enough video camera to do that. Plus, I have always liked writing a lot, so I decided to begin a fashion blog. It was an idea that came to me and I just rolled with it, without even thinking about consequences. Luckily, only good things have come out of this blog! It took me months to gain followers, and even now I am still pretty small. But that is okay. Just knowing that one person is reading my blog, and possibly taking something away from it, makes it all worth it. Plus, blogging is a lot cheaper than retail therapy 😉

One big thing that is about to happen is I am almost at 200 GFC followers!  Thank you so much to those who follow, and for those who don’t, please follow now and help me get to 200! I would like to do a giveaway soon to thank everyone, but I am not sure if it is too early for that! I am trying to plan something though. If you are a company that is wishing to partner with a blogger for a giveaway, feel free to contact me!

Another exciting thing is that I recently got nominated for 2 blogging awards! Thanks to those who nominated me, I am so thankful. I don’t have enough time right now to nominate others and follow all the rules, but I will be doing that in the future!

Award by The Lipstick Clique on July 18th, 2012
Awarded by The Fashion It List on July 22nd, 2012.

Another exciting thing that happened to me personally, is that I won a giveaway on Hairspray and High Heels! The prize was a bracelet from Prairie Charms, which is an amazing company! Please go check out their shop right now if you haven’t recently… everything is adorable! They also have a great blogger program if you are a blogger. And they donate 10% of their proceeds to an amazing organization! I never entered giveaways until I started my own blog. Now I just think, why not? It barely takes any time, and if I win that’s great, but if not it is okay too!

And lastly, I am starting school again in the middle of August 🙁 So if you see less posts from me, you will know why! I am trying to have some posts saved up, so if I end up not being able to write for a few days, I can just post one of those! Also if anyone is interested in guest blogging on The Trendy Chick, please email me at k.jones1296@gmail.com. I would like to have 1-2 guest bloggers on my site per month, especially once I am busy and won’t be able to post as often.

So that concludes my 8th month update on August 8th. If you have any comments or questions, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will reply to you ASAP.
