Hello people of the internet! As you can tell by the title, it's Cardigan Jezebel's second birthday. Two years ago today, I was in Dan's sitting room looking up domain prices. I had the named picked out for months before. I had been considering making a blog as a place for all of my photography and writing. Plus, I read a lot of blogs and wanted to do it too.
I just wanted to write a post to thank you today. Thank you to every single person who has taken the time to help support me over the past two years. That includes reading my posts, commenting on them, sharing my work, helping me out, and just investing your time into me and my blog.
I also wanted to say thank you to my past self for finally saying "fuck it" and starting my blog. If you told me two years ago that I would be an award nominated blogger or, that I would be running my own photo-a-day challenge and the hashtag would have over 16,000 posts in it; I would have laughed in your face!
Honestly, I had a bit of a breakdown on twitter last night. I couldn't see the point to all of this blogging. I've put two years into my life into this blog, what do I have to show for it? Reading every single one of your lovely tweets reminded me exactly why. I blog because I love being creative. I blog because I love sharing reviews and my opinions. I love being creative and having a place in the world to put everything. And most of all I love the fact that I have all of you to talk to. The people who follow me and read my blog are there for my best and worst days. I'm so lucky to have found a community of amazing people on the internet that I can share my life with.
So, thank you again for the past two years, Whether you're a new reader or you've been here from the very start. The fact that you enjoy my ramblings makes me happier than you will ever know.
Here's to year three!
