A Sentimental One Hundred posts!

It's been a long time since I first started this blog, I've missed my Blog anniversary even, but I feel reaching 100 posts is a milestone too. Thank you for sticking with me through the thick and thin, I know it's been a rough ride. Sometimes I'd not post for weeks then I'd kind of go bananas with ideas, hahaha.

A big thank you to all my readers, either those following quietly or signed up through Twitter or Google Friend connect. Huge thank you to all of my SUPPORTERS! I have a great support team and I've come all this way because you each and every one of you that have supported me. Both family and friends, I'm always mentioning them here or in my videos.

I remember when I started off this blog, I wasn't sure what to write on or even if people would take the time to read the ramblings of a science nerd. My first post was on cutting my hair, my week and a main feature on an Indian restaurant named Sitar that my family had been to, and while I wrote that post, I thought , "maybe this will turn into a food blog like The Daily Kimchi". That was one of the first blogs that inspired me to write. It wasn't only about food, but the writer took a great care into capturing the delicacies he was about to eat and still told an interesting story of his adventures of teaching in South Korea. That blog really inspired me and I'd definitely love to give him credit for it. I'm not sure if Gdog as he called himself still blogs, but I really appreciated the effort you put into your blog.

Some interesting history about this blog:
  1. The original name was the Lemon Happiness or something similar and the domain name was the Lemon Wedge Smile. For some reason I was extremely excited about that name and the thought of acid and sweet together was the perfect oxymoron for me.
  2. My blogger name was the Sour Jelly bean. I don't know what it was about me and candy or sour anything at that point lol.
  3. I ended up neglecting this blog for sometime because I wasn't managing my time well between  trying to post and do school work, so I made a deal. I would balance my time around this blog, school and YouTube and then I could reward myself by trying out Twitter. (Now a love of mine hahaha)
  4. I kept my blog separate and somewhat a secret from my Yotube until I was making good consistent content.
  5. As I got more interested in make up and followed more beauty bloggers I decided to capture my hauls with some amateur photography. (I still don't have the best camera, but some day I'll get a better one, hopefully a DSLR).
I use my blog as a time capsule almost, not for beauty blogging only, but I like to share my thoughts here, and find out if others are feeling the same way. I can look back at my thoughts, my feelings, and inspiration.

Through these 100 posts I feel like I have matured as my blog also has too. The template, layout and background has evolved and I hope to improve my writing and content with your help and support.

Again I'd like to thank everyone who has stuck around to see the changes that have come about.
