Just Me. I was playing with some color on my eyes...
I didn't realize that I had been doing this for a year because it seems like so much longer. I first had the notion to start a blog in 2009, attempted and failed. Usually, if I attempted something and it didn't work out, I would just write it off and try something completely different. With this I couldn't do it and I had to try again. So, I began to read other blogs that I loved and studied their formats and content. I soon knew that I wanted to try and carve out a spot for myself in this amazing world I had discovered. I tried so many different names and angles for my blog that Hunny was beginning to get tired of hearing about it and just wanted me to pick something already. It just wasn't that easy. My blog was very personal to me and had to reflect the person I am and all the things I love.
One day I was staring at my blog and realized that I couldn't post on something that wasn't beautiful that it gave me no inspiration to write anything that would draw people in. I immediately began looking for blog designers. I decided that I didn't have the time to try and learn HTML design and would rather pay a professional to do it. By investing in my blog I was investing in myself. After I got my blog designed, everything just began to click. Now I am posting almost daily and it excites me to think about all the ways I have already grown and will continue to do so!
In celebration of From Jasmine With Love's First Year, I am hosting my first GIVEAWAY!!!!!
