My little blog turns 2!

Wow! My little blog is officially 2 years old today. I can't believe how time flies. It feels like only yesturday I started blogging. Von Dork hasn't been around for 2 years, but this blog has under different names.

I started this blog off as Cherrybomb beauty. I don't know why I named it that, and after a while I hated it. That blog lasted from March 12th 2012 until September 2012. The posts are still on this blog if you want to have a look - just use the blog archive at the side. Then in February 2013, I revamped it and Roseberry Lips was born. I chose that name because it, at the time, had meaning to me. Rose was my nans name who sadly passed away in 2010, Berry tones were my favourite colours - and Lips because i'm definitely a lipstick girl.

Roseberry Lips lasted February 2013 until April 2013.. I lost mojo. I used to scheduled posts a month in advance, so eventually I forgot as the month went on and I kept forgetting to post and slipped into the mentality of "it's been so long now, it can wait another day" ...and that day never came. Again, all the posts are still on the blog so check them out if you want too.

Then on October 28th, I was inspired. I found myself reading blogs and feeling motivation again. I loved reading beauty blogs and the blogging community. I loved watching make-up videos and learning new tips, tricks and techniques - and I wanted to be a part of that. So, Von Dork was born.

This is the time I discovered bloglovin' and got more involved in twitter, and talking to fellow bloggers instead of just being a lurker. I took more time on my content and put more effort in to producing good photos and writing good and interesting content, as well as making my blog look the way I wanted with content I loved. I swore to myself I would post something unless I was happy, I promised I was always going to be honest and that if I couldn't do that in a post, that I wouldn't put it up.

Since October 28th, I couldn't have asked for more. I feel like I have been welcomed into the blogging community with open arms, and have spoke to so many lovely ladies out there who have so much passion and talent. I am almost at 100 followers, and i'm so proud of my little blog - i geniunely never thought I would reach what I have.

So, thank you! Thank you for reading, following and commenting.. it means the entire world.
