This past weekend, I was proudly able to say that I stuck with CollegeGirlKendra for an entire year! This fourth of July, CollegeGirlKendra turned one year old. I honestly never thought I would still be blogging under the same name today. When I originally even thought about creating a blog, I had a number of fears that kept me hesitant. I thought that it wouldn’t be accepted by many people. I thought it would be too hard to keep up with and not be as beneficial to me. Thankfully, with time, I learned that my assumptions were wrong. Having this blog has opened many doors for me. I was able to start interning for College Fashionista as a Style Guru. I joined a great on campus organization, Her Campus Georgia Southern. I started out as a weekly contributor and then later was named the Vice President. I learned very quickly that having a blog on your resume is beneficial in several ways. If you’re a fashion marketing major, having a blog is not only a great way to showcase your style but is also a great way to prove your commitment.
Having reached a year, there are several areas where I can say that I’ve grown as a blogger. Looking at pictures from a year ago compared, there are major differences. If there’s one thing that I truly enjoy as a blogger, it’s editing pictures. I love ‘setting the mood’ for all of pictures. I’ve also noticed growth in my writing as well. I think that having my internship has definitely helped me in that area.
Well, now that CollegeGirlKendra has reached it’s first year, what can you expect for year two?
I want to do so much more with my blog. I started off today with changing up my layout. I made my own header (which I think is pretty cute). I’ve trimmed the fat off of my blog. I simplified it more just to give my readers the good stuff. Be on the lookout for new outfits, features, and videos in the next year.
Cheers to year numer two!
