The Purple Doll's 1st Month!

Sunday, November 13, 2011
My blogsite, The Purple Doll, is celebrating its 1st month today! And since I'm such a weirdo, I gave it a non-reality-existing cake.

Original photo from NiceCakeWorld.com; editing is by yours truly.

On the 13th of October 2011, about the same time, I purchased this domain and setup this blog. I initially wanted to just return to the blogging world after years of inactivity. But I was never really sure what type of blog I wanted to build.

After a month of happy blogging, I found myself driven to write more about food. So although my url -- thepurpledoll.net, doesn't sound like a food blog, I'm happy that it has become a diary for my food and restaurant adventures.


For the 32 days that I've been posting entries here, I am also grateful to have met amusing characters -- bloggers who I truly admire for their personalities and of course, their blogs.

I know it's weird to celebrate such a small milestone of my blogging journey. But nevertheless, I find it important since I've learned a lot not only about the blogging world and its community, but also some things about myself.

So to friends, online buddies, blogmates and to the random people who just accidentally landed here.. Thank you!

  18. That's great news, sis! And you've got great stats. I'm not surprised. This is a very informative blog (although shouldn't be viewed on an empty stomach haha).

    I'm reaching my first monthsary a week from now and I'm only at the 3,691 page views (but I'm already super happy with it hehe). How do you promote your blog, by the way? Can I get some tips? :)
