I cannot believe it has been two years since I’ve purchased the domain to Simply Taylor Rae…it’s really emotional for me. When I had begun blogging, I never expected things to happen the way they have. In two years, I have gained thousands of blog views, close to a hundred followers, and so many readers. But that’s not just it.
This blog has taught me so much: website design, photography and photo editing, writing and journalism, business handling, and much more. I also learned so much about myself. Simply Taylor Rae is just as the title states: It’s simply me. Everything I enjoy is here. This is my outlet to the world – to display my love of everything fashionable, beautiful, geeky, and food. It seemed like an odd mix, but it was me and that was the most important factor for myself.
And in two years, I already feel successful. I’ve written over 100 posts. I’ve talked to so many people and bloggers. I’ve had opportunities I never dreamed of prior to starting this journey. I’ve made some close friends and I’ve seen so much support from the friends that were there from the start. My family has shown so much love and support and they have proven to be my biggest fans. And my fiancé, Anthony. He was the one who helped me begin this amazing chapter of my life. He has coached me through the process of making it, editing it, photography, and graphics. He has also encouraged me to do what I feel is best and to always remain myself in the process.
But, the success of a blog always falls on the readers. So to all of you who have followed STR from the very beginning or even as of recently; Thank You. From the bottom of my heart. You all have encouraged me to continue and I am truly grateful.
Sorry to get all emotional and what not, I may have teared up a little bit while writing that! Ahhhh!
I suppose I should tell you all the news, yes?
First Off: If you don’t remember me mentioning last year that I wanted to get back into singing, WELP. I am. I’m currently in the process of putting together songs and then I will be in the process of making my own little mini-album of covers!
Secondly: I will be doing a weekly installment of my adventures in Animal Crossing: New Leaf! I’ve been wanting to do this for a year now and I am finally going to do it! So, I hope you all enjoy that when it debuts!
Third: My YouTube channel will definitely be more active with the following videos: “The Geeky: YT Series” “STR Dances” “SimpleMe: Vlogs” “STR Ultimate Lookbook” & “The Initial Reaction: YT Series”
Fourth: More Anime & Gaming Convention Coverage. Yes, I plan to attend as many of the local conventions as financially possible and cover them for you guys! I did this with Katsucon and I hope to do plenty more.
And Finally!: I have been in talks with Geoff & Griffon Ramsey from the wildly popular Gaming Forum/Site: RoosterTeeth.Com and although I don’t want to give out too much information quite yet…I can tell you that awesome plans are being made. So, please look out for that when it becomes available…
SIMPLY TAYLOR RAE HAD THE CHANCE TO INTERVIEW THEM. So, that will be up later this week!!! I PROMISE!!
So, that is it for today! I hope you all enjoyed this post and I hope it gets you excited for the next year ahead of us!
REMEMBER: I am beyond thankful for you all & I am sending all my love for two amazing years! :’)
