Say Hello (500 Follower Celebration!)

Dress; Thrifted, Sweater; Hollister, Tights; C&A, Boots; Thrifted, Necklace; H&M

Hooray for Milestones, everybody! Today I have reached 500 followers on this little blog.  Honestly, I never imagined when I started the blog a little under ten months ago that it would grow into something more than a way to keep friends and family updated.  It has, though, and I'm over the moon! Thank you for your comments, your support, for being a part of my life at this little corner of the interconnected webs. I really appreciate it!  You have no idea!

Reaching this milestone means that there are a lot of new people reading that I haven't yet said hello to. I've done this on my blog a few times and I feel like it's time to do it again: Introduce yourself! Tell me who you are, what you love, why you blog, whatever! Leave your links to your blogs and shops and websites...I would love to come  take a look. Heck, even if we already speak regularly please feel free to leave a comment about yourself, so others can find their way over to your blogs as well! I love meeting new people and making new friends. It fills my heart with joy. 


P.S. There are still a few spots open for my huge 500 follower group giveaway which will be hosted here this coming Monday. Please email me at Darylnicole@gmail.com if you're interested!
P.P.S. Have you signed up for Christmas in July yet? You haven't? You could be missing out on sweet presents!  

Linking up with the pleated poppy.

Hi.

I'm a reasonable new reader. I live in South Africa and I make handbags. I started blogging as an extra way for people to find my Etsy shop, but now it's mostly just me sharing bits from my life. I moved to a small country village with my boyfriend and our 3 dogs last year and since then I've had so much more to blog about.

I believe I did this last time, but I thought I'd say hi again :P I blog over at eighteenthofmay.blogspot.com about my life and occasionally about my wardrobe! I am also in the process of setting up a photography business, and our website http://oliverfrances.com/ is almost finished :P I have just got to finish the 'introducing the team' page :)

Love your blog, Daryl!

Hello! I just found you on the Pleated Poppy, I am your newest follower! I have been blogging since before the word "blog" was formed. I started back in 1998, in natural health, then years later blogged about my beliefs, then I tried to help wives be happier in their marriages because so many blogs were about miserable marriages and honestly, I have had so many blogs I am having a hard time remembering now what they were about. One thing that has been challenging was that I was having difficulty connecting with women on my other blogs. Maybe because my blogs were not engaging enough, or I was too preachy, I don't know. But just a few months ago I started a fashion/style blog and I am in love with it. It feels like I am finally home! I am finally connecting with woman and just having a lot of fun, which is exactly what I want to do. Thanks for reading! :-)

Betsy said...

woohoo, congrats! what a milestone. I've been reading for a few weeks now but don't think I've commented yet, so HELLO. I was an expat, too, but just moved back to the States from London - I started blogging to chronicle my adventures abroad as well. It's wonderful to see where you and your husband are and to think that I might get there one day! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Congratulations on 500 followers! I hope I can get there one day as well. I love blogging and I'd love to make something out of it.

Baylee said...

Congrats! I'm Baylee! I started following your blog about a month ago. I love all things cats, unicorns, glitter, love, astrology, photography.. and lots more! I started blogging because I had recently gotten out of an abusive marriage and wanted to help other people in abusive relationships get out of them. I also wanted to meet other young divorcees. (Still in the process). Now I mostly blog about life with my cat, dog, tarantula and fiance. Hope you can stop by!

Naomi said...

Congratulations!!! I'll be hitting the 500 mark probably in the next month or so (based on my growing pace so far), and I'm thinking of doing something big time too! I don't know what, though...

Well, I don't remember how I found your blog, but you've been in my reader for a good long while now! I love it! I have my own blog where I mostly share pics of my life in Missouri with my husband and two (almost three!) kids. It's been a ton of fun meeting so many new people!

Allie said...

Yay Congrats on that milestone! That is huuugee!

I'm Allie and I'm kind of a new reader and I have fallen so in love with your blog. I love everything about travel and have an awful case of wanderlust, so looking through your blog just makes me want to hop on a plane and leave. To wherever. I'd go to Kansas just for the experience of it. Though obviously Europe would be much more ideal :)

Alex Butts said...

Ahh congrats, you deserve!!

Sara Louise said...

Alex said...

I'm Alex, I'm just trying to make my way through college and getting my Bachelor's (woohoo done in Spring!) and then my Master's (ughhhh two more years). I love reading and traveling and wish I had enough money to go everywhere I want and buy every book I want. I blog to remember how stressed I tend to get and hopefully as I look back on it I'll realize the small things don't matter for the bigger picture and to learn to RELAX.
