Happy 1 Year Naturally Far Out

Photography: Karen Stauffer Photography

oneyear8 Happy 1 Year to my fashion blog, Naturally Far Out. It has officially been 1 year since I launched my blog. At the time I had no clue what I was doing, and had no clue where I wanted the blog to go. I started with a Nikon Coolpix Touch Screen digital camera, it wasn’t till a few months later I updated to a Nikon D40. Still not the best camera, but it is a step up.

I decided to blog daily for the first few months of blogging but quickly learned that as a blogger I would rather have quality over quantity.  There were many problems I ran into when blogging everyday which was: I ran out of outfits, I would run out of words to say, and I could always feel the pressure of wanting new content out. It was then that I knew I wanted to really work hard on the content I had already created and for future post I would post between 2-4 times a week. Even though everyone’s ratio maybe different, this is the perfect one for me. I want to be real with you guys, connect with you all, and really share my life with you.

oneyear6 oneyear7 What I learned in the 1st year of blogging:

  1. Quality over Quantity.
  2. Write something meaningful in my blog post.
  3. Don’t force writing.
  4. NEVER COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS!!
  5. Engage with other fans and other bloggers.
  6. Visit and comment on other bloggers websites.
  7. Engage personally with people who comment on my social media platforms and on the blog.
  8. Hosting and being apart of Giveaway is a lot of fun.

oneyear5 Blessings I received within 1 year of blogging:

  1. A Nikon D40 Professional Camera.
  2. Worked with well over 1o Brands that I absolutely love.
  3. New Blog Logo
  4. Officially have my Fashion Blogger business cards.
  5. My own photographer who I admire so much.
  6. Was nominated for the Better Homes and Gardens Blogger Awards.
  7. Got excepted into liketoknow.it within the first year of blogging (one of my biggest goals).

oneyear3 So here are my Top 10 Cheers to many mores:

  • Cheers to many more years.
  • Cheers to many more awkward photos.
  • Cheers to many more mistakes.
  • Cheers to many more busy nights.
  • Cheers to many more shopping trips.
  • Cheers to many more trips that I plan to take in the future for my fashion blog.
  • Cheers to many more fashion, beauty, and lifestyle bloggers that encourage me everyday to become a better version of myself and my blog.
  • Cheers to many more blog post proofread by my wonderful boyfriend Michael.
  • Cheers to many more fans that I cherish to death.
  • Cheers to many more past, present, and future supporters that will keep my vision true, dreams high, and fashion style top-notch.

(Outfit Deats: This romper is sold out already. Purchased it at Charlotte Russe a few weeks ago. Seriously everything I get lately is sold out online in a days time, or only has a few sizes available online. Manufactures need to fix that problem, don’t you think? )
