Three years ago, I decided to start a blog after meeting this man who made me feel pretty awful about myself. If I saw this man again, I wouldn’t recognize him, but I want to take a second to thank him. Thank you for making me feel unaccomplished. Because of you, I decided to start Endless Bliss (though it was called something else back then), and three years later, it’s grown into something that I couldn’t have even imagined. Because of you, I’ve been given so many opportunities that I wouldn’t have thought possible when you first spoke to me. Because of you, I learned to follow my dreams and believe in myself.
I also want to thank YOU. Thank you for going on this journey with me. Whether you were with me from the very beginning or you’ve discovered my blog recently, thank you. Thanks for reading my posts, sharing them on social media, commenting with your thoughts, emailing me with questions, asking for advice, collaborating with me and helping me believe in both myself and my writing.
To celebrate, my beautiful friend, Hannah, from Southern Aire Photography took some blogiversary photos for me. Hannah is also the one who has taken all of my professional blog photos that can be found here. My co-worker, Trishun, so graciously woke up super early to come and do my make-up and help me look fabulous. Hannah is a miracle worker, and she’s an absolute joy to work with. I love love LOVE how these pictures turned out.
So thank you to all of the beautiful and wonderful Endless Bliss readers. Thanks for giving me the motivation to want to write and show the world how dorky and nerdy I really am. Thanks for giving me a place to share my thoughts, views and opinions on things I care about and for encouraging me to continue to do so. Also, thank you for adding a little bit of sparkle into my everyday.
This blog and its readers have truly given me the confidence to be unapologetically me. It’s been three years full of adventures, strange stories, amazing “blates” (aka “blog dates”), opportunities, growth and BLISS. Thank you so much for being part of my blog journey. I’m excited to continue this crazy ride with y’all!
