Today is the one year anniversary of my blog. I can't believe I'm actually still here, it's incredible! I usually don't stick to something once I start it, but I wasn't expecting to love the world of fashion blogging as much as I do.
Is this where I have to say something deeply profound and thought-provoking? I don't think there's anything to say about this past year that deserves that pretty expectant title, though maybe it just didn't happen yet. (I have big dreams, remember?!) There was the time last August when I was invited to the Image Diversity Show by Montreal editor, Patricia Gajo. Now that was heavenly, most definitely something I'll never forget.
"XOXO, Nina" started as "Confessions of a Fashionholic" (because I thought I was important enough to make up new words) and then was called "Nina Morena's Blog," for some time because I seemed to have forgotten about the small amount of creativity in me. Now I have my own custom domain and a perfect name for it; everything is finally settled properly.
It's difficult to put this into words. I feel somewhat accomplished for being determined through all the writer's block and happy because all the feedback has been positive so far. I do remember going through a phase of never writing anything, just posting designer news instead of analyzing it to detail like I do now. I've written too much, too little, went off-topic, posted too many photos, ran out of photo space, freaked out and deleted them all. Have I found a better balance by now? Of course Polyvore sets were always a big part of it, to show you my personal style through clothes I don't have access to.
What will I be saying in a year from today? Only time will tell! (I feel terrible typing that overused line, I couldn't think of anything that sounded better.)
