sunny sweetheart's 2 year anniversary!

I cannot believe that today marks the 2-year anniversary of Sunny Sweetheart! I started this blog during spring break of my sophomore year of college. It took at least six months for me to begin posting regularly. It's crazy to look back at old posts and see all the changes: how my "voice" has changed, how my writing has improved, how my style has changed.

Even the 1-year anniversary of Sunny Sweetheart blew my mind away. I missed the 1-year anniversary last year by a few days, haha.... This is my very first post, from March 6, 2011. 

Looking back on my original goals....
1. Post once a day
I have a total of 484 published posts, 66 from 2013 alone (one per day this year!) Even though I do get busy, I always try to find time to blog, even if it's a short post. Unlike some of my other commitments (like going to class) blogging is something that I do just for me. There is no one telling me I have to do it. But I love to do it anyways.

2. Outfit Posts
I accomplished my original outfit post goal in 2012 by putting photos of my outfits on the blog. My 2013 goal with outfit posts was to begin incorporating .GIF outfit posts! (Check). I also set on improving my photography last year in class. I'm definitely still working on my photos and photo editing, but I know a lot more about my DSLR than I used to.

Future goals....we'll just have to  wait and see! I've learned that patience is key. I do my best to post at least once a day to keep the content fresh in addition to practicing my writing skills. There are so many things I want to add to this blog and I have a vision of where I want to take it. However, I need to remember that these positive changes happen slowly and that I can't do it all at once! I'm still a full-time student involved in so many activities outside of school, which need to come first. (Even though sometimes all I want to do is blog!)

For now....
I just started up a profile on Pose! I'm still getting used to the site, but I'd love it if you followed :)
 

I'm also on Lucky Community - still getting that set up. I made a profile ages ago but haven't had time to get into it! Here's the profile :)

And, since we're on the subject of following, I'll do some more shameless self-promotion.... here are links to my Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter, and Bloglovin'. Okay, done with that now. ;)

Whether this is your first visit or your 50th, THANK YOU so much for stopping by! I truly enjoy interacting with other bloggers and reading every single one of your lovely comments. You guys are the BEST. Really.

Cheers to two years!
