Honestly, I never thought I could reach 10K one day when I started Violette Daily. Thanks to you guys, I did it. And I sincerely feel so thankful to you all!
Thank you for believing in me, reading my blog, and giving me this confidence I could never have without all your kind comments. Believe me, it means a lot for me.
I created my blog (for many reasons I won’t get into it for now) over a year ago after a serious accident to practice written language which was a disaster, consequence of this accident. My biggest fear was that someone find out and see who I became after this accident. That’s why I chose to keep my blog only for me, like a very secret diary.
Until the day people discovered it, it was like the worst happened! But I finally got caught up in the game, and it turned out I took a real liking to it. It was a sort of way to escape reality, overcoming how people were seeing me through my new appearance, being myself, feeling “free”, and forgetting all the concerns I’ve been through—I think I needed this.
Since June, month of Violette Daily‘s rebirth (thanks for a friend’s precious help!), I do care a lot for this new baby as much as I love my bags! He‘s like a part of me, someone I couldn’t bear to live without. Of course sometimes we argue or can’t understand each other properly, you know HTML and SEO… But he does know me, so well than he‘s more aware of me than I am. Like Google knows you better than you think!
Since the new design, I took this blogging stuff beyond than serious, without taking myself seriously—thing I hate more than anything!
You also have to know that, if you’re about to do something with me…well…you have to deal with him too (haha sorry for the ones I’m having lunch or dinner with!)! Okay, I’m a bit exaggerating though!
I am putting all my heart into it. I create the content with a lot of sincerity and love. Taking pictures of the Eiffel Tower or my cappuccinos have become an obsession. #DuckFace selfies are on my side. Even if, lately, the #CrossingTheStreet became a bit rarer than my beloved #DoorsCrush, it still dwells deeply in my heart.
I have learned to accept this so short hair I never asked for. I gained this powerful strength that I never would have had. You gave me this powerful strength to enjoy blogging so much, that it encourages and inspires me more and more everyday! I’m not exaggerating!!
I have never been used to express my feelings, smiling all day long, never complaining about anything, being satisfied by the smallest things. Only idiots never change their mind, I think I’m not an idiot (no claim intended). So I changed and now I express myself—depending on my mood, fashion crush, and favorites cafés or restaurants, because I have so many things to tell about my Parisian hectic life. Always easier to write than speak.
Surprisingly, crazy and terrifying as it could be, Violette Daily became a major element for me throughout that tough recovery.
Thank you again to all of you, you who support me, and the kind people I met.
Sending you much kisses, hugs, and love from Paris,
