'Colours of My Life' Turned One

I realised a few days ago that I've been blogging for an entire year! I guess it's not really a big deal but for the last couple of days I took some time to figure out a few things about this little blog o' mine. I asked myself...

"Why do I blog? Why did I start in the first place?"
"Should I continue?"
"Does it really matter?"

Sometimes blogging seems quite frivolous but I realised it is only so when there's no real purpose behind it. I'm not here to win a popularity contest. I'm here because I love writing, sharing and being creative. Plus, I like challenging myself to try new things and meet new people. So far I've made many wonderful connections with people from around the world through my blog. At this point I couldn't ask for more. 

To all my blog friends and readers, thank you so much for making this one of the most positive experiences of my life. Your comments, e-mails and messages mean a lot to me (albeit I've been very bad at replying them all on time lately!).

You, my lovelies, are the colours of my life *Hallmark moment*

P.S. New layout is being put up so please bear with the work in progress.

I love blogging as well. Through blogging, I 'met' you! =) Keep on blogging, love.

Be blessed.
Congratulations and happy anniversary!
I just realized I think I have been blogging for 1 year too.
I was just about to shut down my blog because I haven't been writing much lately since I didn't have my computer. But then I saw some comments and they warmed my heart and reminded of how blogging has helped me grow as a person.
InshaAllah you will continue to blog too and we may continue to be blog friends (though I do hope to meet you one day in real life cuz that's how cool you are!)
Love ya!!!!!

Salam my dear! Congrats and I love the new look (but I loved the old one too!)

I have asked myself similar questions about blogging. I sometimes wonder if my blogging goes against everything that I believe modesty to be. But I also realise that I know for a fact that at least one person benefited from my posts. And that is what makes it worth it.

RS: Awww, you're such a sweetheart! InshaAllah we'll both continue to blog.

hispanic muslimah: The feelings are mutual hun. Would love to visit you
the States one day. Stay in touch! <3

L&S: Honestly you're one of the sweetest people I know from the blogging world... you're never short of positive things to say mashaAllah. <3 you.

edimmccrappy: Thank you *throws confetti*

bosnishmuslima: That's so kind of you to say. Thank you *hugs*

Atiqah Adnan: Yes, my life is definitely more colourful after I started blogging lol.

Mona: I know! In the blogging world a year doesn't feel so long!

hatim: Welll it was my birthday in September =P lol thank you for the wish hatim!

Rene: Likewise darlin' ;)

Smiley: Glad I found yours too *hugs*

Aisha: Blogging wouldn't be as fun if I didn't meet such talented, creative and warm people like you so thank you for that =)

Jasmina: You're always so sweet! How do you do it? Thank you for all the support you've given me for the past 1 year.

Yunne: My followers will never cease to amaze me =) Thank you for the lovely comment. InshaAllah see you at Yuna and Hana's event.

hijabi hippie hypo: You're awesome! ;) Thank you

Houda: Wassalam sis. Thank you! You're amazing and you took the words right out of my mouth. I went through the exact same thing... I think hijab has made me more modest (inshaAllah) in the past few months and I've decided to make some changes in myself and my blog. As much as I love fashion and it's probably the easiest thing to blog about anyway, I'm going to try and write more about the bigger things in life =)

Amalia: Thank you dear! <3 kisses for Nora
