The other day a dear friend of mine, called me and told me about this video. She is a blogger that I actually met at this conference. I got chills when I watched this short clip, remembering this was the turning point or Birdalamode, my blog, this is when I fully grasped the world of blogging. *my little cameo is around min. 4 🙂
A year before the Rewardstyle Top 200 Conference, I remember sitting at my computer buying a domain and learning the language of coding. I launched Birdalamode.com March 2013. I started my blog as a journal feel, documenting both my husband and I’s love story, the birth of our son, our travels, and then the #ootds began. 3 months after launching my blog we welcomed my daughter into our family. Around the same time of her birth I experienced some losses and as an affect got Bells Palsy, leaving half of my face paralyzed for 9 weeks all while trying to maintain my blog, and learn the art of mothering a second child.
I had wonderful support both by my readers and my sponsors, and I was thankfully picked up by Rewardstyle. Never in a million years would I ever guess the amount of doors that would be opened to me as I opened the window of my blog. Birdalamode.com went from a blog to a brand/business. Leading me to travel, negotiate, make friends from all over the world, and best of all I still get to be a mom. I am so grateful for companies who have made it possible for bloggers to make businesses out of themselves and for all the many sponsors. Non of this would ever be possible without my readers who really make the biggest impact of all.
The thing I love most about my blog is that I get to have this little space on the web, both where I can express my love of fashion, while also expressing myself. To all of you who have supported me along the way, thank you!
