Yes, Chloe.Ash is finally 4 years old. It’s true when people say time flies when you’re having fun. I’ve never kept up with a hobby this long. Seriously. My attention span is worse than a 5 year old. Someone asked me before how I promoted my blog. Seriously? I don’t. How do you promote your blog? People just find me and they’ll stay if they like what they read. I have no idea how you, my readers and friends, come by, how you found me, but I’m glad you did. I have no idea how my stats have increased every year, but I’m glad it did. If you knew, then maybe you could let me know.
So what have I learned in the last 4 years of blogging? Let’s make that 4 things:
- Stay true to yourself, true to your intentions. That includes not selling out, being honest and as unbiased as you can be (because let’s face it, we’re human).
- Enjoy the community. I’ve made so many good friends along the way, great people in fact! I love how supportive and engaging this community is. Sure, there are sour people along the way, some unpleasantness here and there, but I take it as an experience, and an opportunity to grow.
- There are only so many new and shiny things you can own. It’s a never-ending cycle. I lust after many new things, but there are only a few things I’d buy. We only have 1 face after all.
- Relax, enjoy and take it easy. I’ve never really had the urge to be the best beauty blog or to be famous. I don’t know how, and I don’t want to. Because of that, I don’t compete or be jealous of someone else’s success. I like my blog the way it is, and if you’re here, I’m sure you like it too. Let’s just enjoy our time here, and let’s be friends 🙂
I know there are some of you who are anxious to know who won the surprise giveaway. Some of you are new to my blog BECAUSE of the giveaway, but I hope you’re not those greedy giveaway stalkers who leave as soon as the giveaway is over. Yes, those annoy me even though I know it’s unavoidable. Anyway, if you’re new here, I hope you’ll stay and enjoy the updates I have for you. So… finally….
