Today is a special day for me. One month ago, I wrote my first post on this blog, Leila Lina! My blog has become a huge part of my life since then. I have published 30 posts on topics ranging from beauty, to fashion, to music reviews. I have also written two diary entries on my decision to go vegan, both of which were met with warm support and encouragement. The blogging community has been so welcoming to me, regularly offering supportive comments and even nominating me for several awards. The fact that bloggers took the time to notice my tiny blog means so much to me. In the beginning, my goal was to reach 50 followers by the end of the summer. I now have 286! It is unbelievable that so many people are interested in what I have to say. Thank you so much! I am beyond appreciative of everyone who has read, commented, or followed my blog! I have found an amazing little world in the blogging community and will work towards making my blog better and better in the months to come.
