100th Post Celebration + Gift To You

Hhhmmm... balloons... that must mean there is a celebration of some sort going on, right?! What on earth could we be celebrating though? Well, since you've asked... This post that you are reading right now is the 100th post on my humble little blog. It's strange to think that I haven't always written on www.thisisaine.com - it feels as though this blog has been a part of my life forever. But, it has only been 1 year, 1 month, and 12 days... but who's counting?

Anyway I just wanted to write a quick post to let you know what's going to be happening in the near future of this blog and also to say a massive thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you lovely people who read my blog posts. While I do write the blog mainly for myself and my own enjoyment, it means the world to me that other people are reading and enjoying my words too. It really is thrilling to push that publish button 3 mornings per week. 

So here we are, 100 posts in... where do I go from here? 

I have had some really exciting things happen since starting my blogging journey last year and I'm grateful for every opportunity that I'm given. At the moment I am most excited about the fact that I have been short-listed for Blog Awards Ireland's "Best Fashion Blog" category. I couldn't believe it when I was short-listed and I can't wait to see who the finalists are - if I ended up being a finalist I really could not be held accountable for my actions. 

Other things that are going to be happening in the future are that I will have many more posts. Hundreds more in fact, and I hope that you guys will be there to read every single on of them with me. I want to hear all of your opinions and thought and ramblings so please feel free to use the comments section of my posts to make your voice heard - that is what this platform is all about; opinions... and I want to hear yours. 

Also, as y'all know I have started a YouTube channel over the summer. I look forward to sharing loads more fun stuff with you guys over there so please do go and subscribe by clicking here. I currently have about 46 subscribers, how amazing would it be to get to 100... considering this is the 100th blog post I think it'd be pretty EPIC. 

Get ready for a change of scenery in my blog posts too as I am moving back to Dublin very soon and can't wait to explore the city and take y'all along with me. 

I know that there are other things that I should probably say and am just forgetting about... oh well, I guess I can leave it at that for now. Again, a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who reads and enjoys and engages with my blog posts. I genuinely do appreciate every comment and like. They make my heart feel all warm and fuzzy.
