My first blog was called Thrifty Girl Vintage. My first foray into blogging was a joy and I think it shows in how happy I was in my photos. It was a thrill to find this huge, encouraging community of personal style bloggers of all ages. I kept my blog going for about a year and hit around 100 followers. I took my blog down when my life took some unexpected turns. Still, it was such a positive experience that I couldn’t stay gone forever.
Here are my first photos from Thrifty Girl Vintage. I was heavier then…and blonder! But what I like about this community is that whatever you’re size, age, size of your town or nationality…we are all welcome here.
The first photo of myself I shared on my blog was this headshot.
About the time i started my first blog, a 30 for 30 Remix was just about to begin. It sounded like a lot of fun and it would force me to jump in feet first, posting an outfit every day for 30 days. I took the plunge and added my blog’s name to Kendi’s list. I was excited, but still I wondered…was I going to go through with it?
Day 1 came and I took photos on the porch. Then I took photos in the yard. Lastly, I tried photos indoors. It took three tries, but I finally came up with something I didn’t mind posting online. Looking back at it, I wonder why I decided to post my backside?!?
I am happy to say that I stayed with the 30 for 30 Remix and posted my outfits for the next 29 days. It was a challenge, but it was a great way to jump in and get started. I would advise any new blogger, just to plunge in and go with it.
I’m glad I did.
Live your lemonade life,
