2013: My Blogging Year in Review

Since it's always fun to jump on the bandwagon when everyone else is doing something, I too decided to summarize my year of blogging for you as we approach 2014 at midnight tonight!

First off, I have to say that this year has been a truly amazing one for me. I have accomplished so much with the help of so many lovely individuals, and I truly owe a lot of my success thus far to these unofficial sponsors of my life and blog! I only hope that 2014 brings me as much success and happiness as 2013 and that I can continue to expand Erica Exposed to be a major Canadian plus fashion blog!

What I accomplished in 2013:
  1. Started blogging officially and transitioned my blog from a Tumblr account to Blogger
  2. Took on a new persona and transformed myself from Big and the Beautiful to Erica Exposed (and registered my first domain name!
  3. Started doing some plus size modelling in Toronto, including:
    - Walked in my first adult fashion show: The Fuller Woman Expo (Fun Fact: I was a child model!)
    - Took part in my first official photo shoot
  4. Met some amazing friends and individuals in the plus community
  5. Attended my first ever store launch (Addition Elle Queen Street)
  6. Attended my first blogger event (Big Deal Toronto)
  7. Attended my second blogger event (Consign Your Curves)
  8. Attended my first plus size fashion Launch (Nina Bitton)
  9. Attended my first ever plus size media release event (A Toast to Curves)
  10. Made it onto Addition Elle's Fan Friday page as a blogger
  11. Made the most consecutive number of blog posts I have ever done, 13 in a row (1 per day)
Not to mention, I graduated with an Honours Bachelors of Applied Science Degree in Psychology, with Distinction in June. I also got accepted to a Masters of Social Work program, and finished my first semester there (3 more semesters to go!). 

All in all, I am extremely proud of my progress this year, not only in my professional life (blogging, modelling, etc.) but in my personal life as well. I have changed so much as a person from my experiences this year, and I can only hope that I continue to grow over the next year. 

I wish you all a Happy New Year in 2014, fruitful in love, joy, happiness and success!
