When I started this blog, it was never clear where this was all going. I simply went with the flow and have learned so many things along the way.
And it wasn’t always up, there were a few down time and challenges, which made me question whether blogging was something I should be pursuing or not. Not forgetting the fact that I was also a new Mom, who was embarking a fun and crazy journey with her little bean (of whom turned 3 recently and is now half my size haha).
In the end, I’m grateful that I did not quit and I feel blessed because I have people who stood by me regardless, continued to read my posts and cheered me up when I needed it the most. And for this, I cannot thank you all enough.
Blogging is a ‘full time job’ and as frustrating as it can get when things don’t turn out the way we planned them, it’s also very rewarding. The reward doesn’t just come from receiving new products or getting paid for what you do, but from the little things I call ‘the real blogging perks’. One of your readers goes out their way to email you just to say THANK YOU, or when an individual or brand you follow and love give recognition to one of your posts, that day when your stats just go bananas and comments flooding in, late night tweets with your bffs from across the globe, these are just a few of the perks I’m talking about.
Perks that make such a difference to a blogger’s day. So whenever you get a chance to drop by on someone’s blog, take that extra time to leave them a comment or share their post. You never know, you could actually be turning their gloomy day into a fine one.
And now, the time has come that we get this party started! LOL. One lucky bean will be rewarded and have a sweet time pampering themselves from head to toe. I’m also thankful to the brands I’ve worked with, who are kind enough to spoil my readers and sent me the products to give away, while the rest of the products were purchased and put together by me.
