Happy 1st Birthday Pretty Loved Blog!!

Decorated Cupcake

Much to my surprise, it’s been a whole YEAR since Pretty Loved was created! (Its 1st birthday! Awww!) It honestly has been so much fun every day creating this blog that time has just flown right by.. So much has happened in one year that I never imagined happening.

First of all, I want to say thank you so much to all of you who have not only taken the time to check out my posts, but followed my blog (630 of you on WordPress alone!) and also left me sweet comments! It really means a lot to me that you take the time to give your thoughts.

I started this blog as a creative outlet and because I am somewhat of a loner and I can say now that I’ve met so many wonderful friends through blogging. I’m truly so happy I decided to carry on. <3

    Congrats on finishing your first year of blogging strong! Happy 1st birthday! I have a smaller blog like you. I am close to hitting a thousand followers. What is your best advice for approaching brands? I would love to work with some but have yet to do so.

      Hey girl! Thanks so much. It’s been a great year, truly. I guess my biggest advice would be to start smaller — when I first started I joined Brandbacker and did a product review from that. Then I approached smaller companies and let them know I’d love to do a review for their company. For a bit, I really focused on growing my numbers: Twitter, facebook, etc and I think that really helped. After a while, companies were approaching me. I’d just say – approach them politely, offer what you have and what you can do for them and just be sure to keep it shorter, to the point and sweet. Just don’t be afraid! They won’t bite and if they maybe say no now that doesn’t mean it’s a no forever. Sometimes they get limited samples of something. Don’t take it personal. Xo Good luck!
