Happy Shminkiversary to me!
It’s crazy to think one year has passed since I launched this blog!
I launched QS on October 5, 2011 and so much has happened this past year.
There are SO many of you who have been following the blog and I truly thank all of you for your support. I’m thrilled so many of you enjoy it!
I put the blog out with no real idea of what would happen or what could come from it — I was just looking for a place to share things that I enjoy.
The more time I spent working on and developing the site, the more I realized how many possibilities and opportunities there are.
To be honest, I wasn’t really into the idea of putting out a blog at first!
I remember flying from Miami to Vegas with Future (Aubrey’s DJ) and he said to me, “Why don’t you put out a blog? You’re so into fashion and girls always like what you wear. Make it about stuff you like, not just what everyone else is doing.”
I said, “Everyone is a blogger these days. Who cares what I have to say?”
After a little convincing during the flight, I decided to go for it…and I’m glad I did.
I never thought the blog would really go anywhere or be recognized in one year, but it has, and it’s pushed me to work harder and reach higher goals. Actually, it’s pushed me to work harder and reach higher goals in regards to everything in my life.
I couldn’t been more happy! From the features and collaborations the blog has been included in, growing in my career alongside one of my best friends and all of the great people I continue to meet; this past year has been fabulous and I’m glad you guys are along for the journey!
