One year ago today, I published my first-ever blog post here on Sophistique Noir. it was just a silly bit of babbling about why I was interested in blogging, and a chance to get my feet wet using Blogger. I really thought no one would be too interested. Now, just 12 months (and nearly 225 posts) later, I have 466 followers on Google Friend Connect, 296 on Facebook, and a wonderful group of regular commenters that I look forward to interacting with on my blog as well as theirs!
I’m seriously getting weepy writing this, because this blog had become so special to me. Not only has it become a much-needed outlet for creative expression, it also puts a very personal part of me out there for the world to see and crititque. But most importantly, I’ve grown to love this little online community and the interaction with fellow Goth ladies of all ages and nationalities. I feel connected here in a way that I certainly don’t amongst the “normal” world. So thank you, all of you who read and comment, for making the past year a rewarding one for me on a whole new level!
