Last Wednesday, 17th December, my little blog turned ONE. One year ago, after a lot of contemplation with myself, I decided to start my own blog. I didn’t really know what that would entail but I finally plucked up the courage to start something new and have an outlet that I can control myself.
Looking back to my first ever post I realise how far I’ve come. I’ve still got a long way to go but I’m happy to take everything one step at a time and be able to look at my blog and say ‘This is all me’. I started off with fashion because that is something that I am extremely passionate about. But I didn’t want to fall into the trap that if I don’t have any fashion-related posts then my blog runs flat. So basically, I started expressing all the things that I care about on my blog; be it fashion, beauty, travel, personal posts. I don’t like categorization and I don’t want to be solely restricted to one thing.
I feel that by the means of the blog, I’ve also grown so much as a person. It is safe to say that I am not one of those people that can make conversations with total strangers. I find that extremely difficult and very nerve-wrecking. But through Splashes of Looks, I forced myself into situations where I have to put myself out there. As months went by, I feel that meeting new people and making friendly conversation with people I am not necessarily familiar with became a tad easier. For that, I am so grateful.
Finally, I would like to thank YOU. I am humbled every time I look at my stats and see how many of you take the time to read and look at what I have to say. A blog is nothing without its followers so thank you.
Here’s to many more years!
