When I first started my blog, I never thought I would get the response I have done. Ive passed the 50 followers mark now and I have some truly lovely regular readers. I love it when people comment on my posts, regardless of whether they agree or not with what I am saying, I love that people are taking the time out to read my thoughts, look at my pictures and leave a little note as to what they're thinking. I read each and every one and a couple of times a week I sit down and reply to everyone. I'm really grateful for all the recognition I have received from companies like Models Own and Me Me Me who have acknowledged my wall posts on Facebook or tweeted about me and retweeted links to my posts when I've reviewed their products. In my short time blogging, I have also been featured in the Models Own weekly blog wrap which I was just absolutely over the moon about. It feels great to know that people value my opinion and take it on board. If I have gone out and bought something with my own money, I will always give you my honest opinion, otherwise, whats the point?!
I know there will always be much better bloggers than me out there and people with thousands more followers who read their posts, but I just wanted to let you all know, however many of you there are, that I am really really grateful for all of your support and friendship. I heard a saying the other day that 'Facebook is for friends that are now strangers. Twitter is for strangers that should be your friends'. This is so unbelievably true. Thank you everyone for your friendship =]
Last week a lovely blogger called Lorin tweeted me to say that she featured me on her blog, Toxic Constellation, in a post about the top 10 blogs that shes reading at the moment. She wrote some lovely things about me and linked to my blog which was nice. Here's what she wrote:
"What Laura Loves Blog
What i adore about Laura's blog is that she does blog about her life. If you take a look now, you'll see posts on a concert, make up and tea! I love the diversity of the posts, and every one has me hanging on to each and every word. Also, she's gorgeous!"
Thank you Lorin! I think shes making it a weekly thing too which is great because she gives some fab recommendations. Its a really good idea to write about the blogs that you're loving at the moment, I think I may share some of the blogs that I enjoy too at some point.
Which blogs are you enjoying reading at the moment?
