one year birthday: the after party {closed}

Ok, so my last post was a little emotional but it's something I've been wanting to get off my mind, (and out of my blog drafts) for months. I hope none of you took it offensively- I just believe this community is worth much more than an uncredited photo and I get all Rosie Riveter about a subject.

I can't believe it's been one year. That's nuts. Here are my goals for 2010 Blogger style:

-New layout
-Outfit posts (yes)
- Less smaller giveaways and more bigger giveaways
-More personal (probably not but imagine the day that'll happen)
-I don't call myself a professional photographer but I'll be taking more photos indeed

One thing I didn't mention in my post is how grateful I am for this blog. This blog has been the motherboard to so many connections. My best friends are across the screen, and just like the Format once sang, the need to fit in is harder when living life from a screen, I believed it at one point. Now, I can't imagine my days not skyping my best friends across the world, using Twitter as a form of communication, and of course, blogging.

Blogging has helped me dig out a voice hidden, opened me up to wonderful people and here's to 2010!

Ok, now the giveaway part: It's a Diana Mini with 3 rolls of film to get you started. My original blog posts were all about Lomography and it's what brought me to begin blogging in the first place. Fitting.

January is my BLOG birthday month :) I know, I'm a nerd for even bringing attention to it.
