Some of you may be unaware that Toronto Beauty Reviews is actually the 2nd blog I started. I had another blog called Curls and Pearls but I merged the two this past spring.
I haven’t really paid attention to when I started blogging but it’s been definitely over a year since I started Curls and Pearls as I recall it being in the beginning of Summer. It got me thinking about what made me start blogging.
But first, let me start with an outfit and then I’ll take you through the story.
Necklace and bracelet: Avon
When I would shop for clothes I used to think “if it doesn’t fall off, it fits!” Then I discovered style blogs geared towards petites such as Alterations Needed and Extra Petite which showed me that fit was very important for all woman, especially petites since clothes were not necessarily made for the proportions of shorter women. I became OBSESSED with blog reading and then the Alterations Needed forum was born and that’s when the community interaction began. I started to “get to know” many of the ladies and felt more comfortable posting comments and questions.
I was contemplating starting my own blog but I was still really apprehensive. Then I saw a picture of myself wearing this same skirt at a friend’s birthday dinner:
Avon Bohemian Princess Bracelet (here and here)
The beads are somehow attached to the closure by crochet I think?
So, you have this skirt to thank or blame for my blogging 😛
My fellow bloggers – what made you start blogging?
