As 2010 comes to a close and 2011 begins, I'd like to take some time to reflect on some of the blessings in my life.
I had been reading beauty blogs for a while but on March 3, 2010, I took the plunge and created this blog for Mai and myself and wrote my first blog post. In the 9 months since that initial post, 60 people are now publicly following with others who are not following but reading my little ramblings. I feel so blessed that you find what I write interesting enough to read.
Technology is truly a wonderful tool. Yes, it can also be a dangerous tool but when used properly and with proper precautions, it's definitely a wonderful tool that can open up the world to you. I have friends in Austria, Japan, China, US, UK, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Guatemala, Venezuela, Holland and many other places in the world that I have met through technology (not just beauty blogging). Beauty blogging enabled me to expand my horizons a bit and meet more people in all corners of the world. By starting beauty blogging, I have "met" other beauty bloggers who I can truly call friends. I have been inspired, expanded my beauty repertoire, have been enabled and have enabled others and most importantly, feel better about myself and more self confident. I am quite shy by nature but being able to meet and get to know people via blogging makes me comfortable enough to want to meet in real life. All of you who I have met through blogging are truly the most awesome and generous people and I am so blessed to be able to call you friend.
In November I got to meet up with Kay of cosmeddicted, my first blogger meetup. A super sweet person who is beautiful both on the inside and outside.
I look forward to more blogging in 2011 and making new friends. I hope that 2010 was kind to all of you and may 2011 bring you all much joy, happiness and prosperity. Happy New Year to you all!
