A year ago, I started shonshon8 to express my love for fashion, share design that excites me and use the blog as an experimental creative platform. At first, it was a challenging project—though I can be outspoken and passionate, I am also an introverted, shy and private person by nature. The thought of putting my photos online was actually terrifying! However, through blogging, I’ve learned to be more open about who I am, not to mention, having complete, artistic freedom is the ultimate dream!

In celebration of my 1 year blog anniversary, here are my top 8 fashion posts.

1. My first post ever!

……..

A year later, blogging continues to be a big passion of mine. That said, I don’t always have as much time as I’d like to post new content! Sometimes I post more, other times my work (I’m an art director and stylist) keeps me up until 4 in the morning, so I have to put it on the backburner. But I appreciate you readers checking back and I’m always active on facebook and twitter. Let’s just say I’m currently finetuning my life so I can focus on what I REALLY want to do; eventually there will be more time for blogging.

P.S. For my blog’s birthday, it would be a fantastic gift if you could let friends know about shonshon8.wordpress.com. Feel free to use any of those share buttons below. 😉

Fellow bloggers, please leave your blog link in the comments section; if I haven’t already seen your blog, I’d love to check it out. Let’s start a dialogue. Thanks!
