Okay, so I'm a bit late with my 1 year anniversary post of La Petite Noob. My official start date was December 14th, 2014 so while I've missed the exact anniversary by almost a month, I still wanted to devote a post to it since it's a huge milestone for me. When I first started La Petite Noob a year ago, I had absolutely no idea what a huge part of my life this blog would become - nor how personally fulfilling I would find writting it would be! I still can't believe how much fun I've had developing my little internet space, or how many awesome opportunities and situations have come of it. Looking back, these are a few that really stick out:
Guest Blogging for Wonder Forest
I have been an avid follower of Dana's for years now and her amazing blog Wonder Forest, as well as her helpful blogging tips and tricks, were instrumental in helping me create La Petite Noob. When I first applied to become a contributor, I figured that it was just a shot in the dark - I had only been blogging for a few months, and thought that there was no way a huge blogger like Dana would ever consider me. I will be forever grateful that she took a chance on me and my blog and not only gave me so much exposure, but also forced me to be creative in creating content for her. I don't know if you're reading this Dana, but if you are - thank you, thank you, thank you!
Lauren Conrad's Chic of the Week
I seriously couldn't believe it when I scrolled through my 'Bloglovin feed to see my photo listed on her blog, saying that I had been named her Chic of the Week. I've always loved Lauren Conrad since the beginning of her career (team LC!), and was beyond honoured to be featured on her incredible lifestyle blog. It sounds nerdy, but I still sometimes go back and re-visit the feature article just to get that giddy feeling again!
Connecting with Fellow Bloggers
Whether it be through blog comments, Instagram conversations, or even in real life, meeting and interacting with all of you has been the absolute best part of this whole journey. Every single comment gives me the warm fuzzies, and I am constantly drawing inspiration from your blogs. I'll admit, the thought of putting myself out there on the internet was a huge fear and was the main apprehension that held me back from creating La Petite Noob for so long. Little did I know that the blogging community is made up of incredible, supportive, and generally just all around lovely individuals and I am proud to be included!
It's hard to think that I've been blogging at La Petite Noob for an entire year now - the time really has flown by! The journey has been incredible, and I want to thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart for following along with me. I'm excited to see what the future holds for this space, and I'm grateful to have you all along for the ride!
