This post not only marks the end of June 2012, but it also marks the 500th time I’ve written to all of you since I started this journey over two years ago.
But let us first have one last glance at the month that was June 2012…
- Introduced you to Sara of Ladylike Delicacy and Taylor of CoverGirl + Converse
- Re-introduced you to Tokyobahnbao of Le monde de Tokyobahnbao, my first-ever blogger profiled, as well as my first-ever bilingual profile
- Went outside the box with Laura Ellis
- Snagged an interview with Waterfront Fashion Week founders Peggy Duffy and Clinton Deckard
- Celebrated Pride Month with a few LGBTQ musicians
- Prepared ourselves for the 10th anniversary of Forecastle
- Turned up the runway to fashionably loud levels
- Published an article for The Truth About Cars about Louisville’s newly reopened Ford Louisville Assembly Plant
- Created my first-ever advert for this blog for The Citizen Rosebud
- Re-opened my two most popular posts (my coming-out post re: Alexandria’s Genesis and my rare profile of Tabitha St. Germain, respectively) for commenting — while keeping new posts open and old posts closed — thanks to a PHP code that allows for this to occur; thank you girliegeek!
- And finally… published my 500th post, which just happens the one you’re reading at this very moment
Five hundred posts in over two years. I don’t know what to say. Five hundred posts ago, I had no idea what to do with my blog at all. Could I even blog about fashion in the first place? How would I go about it?
Where would I end up?
Five hundred posts later, my blog has given me so much: An internship at a local radio station, invites to local and international fashion events, writing opportunities elsewhere, the chance to meet and profile others in fashion and elsewhere, being profiled in a high society paper…
But most of all, my blog has given me… you. Whether you’re a friend, a fellow fashion blogger, an automotive blogger, a brony, a music lover, a Louisvillian, or — yes — even a follower of my little violet-eyed cult, all of you have been a huge part of this blog’s success.
