#500 : TSD is Now 500 Blog Posts Old | Completing 6 Years of Blogging and a Big Thank You

Friday 30 June 2017

Hey lovelies!

Today is a special day! Well, it's not any festival or event, but it ofcourse holds a special place in my life. Well it's because not only I complete 6 years of blogging this month, but, I also reach a milestone ie. completing 500 posts on this blog that I have nurtured like a baby.

I haven't been writing as often as I was till last year, and haven't shared any heartfelt post since a long time. So I thought the 500th post was a perfect time to share my thoughts with my readers and everyone who has supported me throughout my blogging journey of 6 years.

Recently, I was ranked 4th among Top 100 Indian Fashion Bloggers by Feedspot which also feels amazing, and makes me feel that I am going on a right path.

There have been times that I have felt demotivated or disheartened about not giving more time to the blog, but achievements like these push me to keep writing and engaging you all with the content that you have liked for years.

This blog had started out as a hobby for me during my MBA summer internship back in 2011, and I had never thought I would be able to make it big and reach so far. Even my family and friends had thought that I would get over this hobby soon, but the satisfaction of seeing those blog hits increasing day by day made me confident and I decided to take my passion seriously.

That's when I decided to invest on the blog, by first purchasing a DSLR camera and slowly investing into key wardrobe pieces that are still an important part of my OOTD posts.

While it's difficult to name just a few of my favorite posts on the blog so far, the Curvy Style Guide series is really close to my heart - as I started this Lookbook series to break the stereotype that curvy girls can't be stylish. I believe if you have the confidence and know your body type well, there's nothing that would stop you from looking your best. I have gained and lost weight so many times in the last 6 years of blogging, but what has been constant is my love for fashion and this OOTD series.

Apart from my full-time digital marketing job, I have also kept my love for blogging alive and I try to devote as much time as possible to the blog. To start writing more often, I have decided to make few lifestyle choices so that I can be inspired to write regularly.

I have also thought many a times to take up blogging full-time, but I believe I am still learning and there's lot more to achieve before I decide to take up blogging as a full-time profession.
For now, I am happy with these small achievements and brand associations that I get to be a part of time-to-time.

Here's hoping for another wonderful year of blogging and growing! Keep reading and keep supporting my blog like always.
