FIVE YEARS LATER
The year has come to an end, and 2012 is just around the corner.. it makes one reflect.. and for me, it marks the 5th year of blogging! Five years ago to the day, I decided to start a fashion blog called The Vintage Society. At the time, I was considering opening a store (with that name), and I thought starting a blog was a great way to spread the word (to friends and family.. at least that’s what I thought). Slowly, I started posting about inspirations, thoughts and eventually my own personal style… the days of using a digital snap and shoot.
Whew.. five years later.. it looks so different.
I switched my blog from The Vintage Society (didn’t open the shop) to B. Jones Style.
Back in the day, I’d step in front of a tripod, snap one (YES.. one)Â picture, post the one (YES.. one) photo and be done with it. Now, we have these fancy cameras, with cool effects and run around cities taking photo after photo.. who knew?
It used to be a hobby, and now it’s my job.. again.. who knew?
I used to be twenty-six, and now I’m thirty-one.. who knew?
I used to just blog, and now I blog-tweet-facebook-youtube-instagram.. who knew?
It’s crazy how much has changed in five years, but one thing has remained the same.. I’m blown away and so grateful for my readers.. YOU!!! I couldn’t believe the first time I received a comment from a reader (who wasn’t my mom), and I still get so excited to read and hear your comments.
With this year ending, I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your loyalty, thoughts, encouragements, questions, and emails. I absolutely love this community here on B. Jones Style.. and I couldn’t do it without you. If you have followed me from the very beginning.. a double thanks for sticking in there.. and giving me five years of little minutes throughout your life.
SERIOUSLY.. thank you.. and I hope you all have the Merriest Christmas! Love on your family and close ones, laugh till you cry, eat like you just don’t care, and reflect on the amazing blessings in your life.
