When Madeline, the co-founder of Wikifashion emailed me telling me she made a page for Pandaphilia, I was super excited to fill in some information to enter the database. I was even more excited to find out that today I am Wikifashion's Featured Article! I feel so honoured and blessed to have so many lovely supporters and to have made wonderful friends through the blogging community. I have come out of my shell a lot, not only from the fashion perspective, but also as a person.
Blogging has made me think hard about my ideal image of myself and whether it's practical. Becoming involved in this community has also made me more wise in considering that truly whatever I sign my name on or leaves my lips should be considered carefully and thoughtfully before I say it. This past year has been filled with learning experiences and been a journey about reconciling new hobbies and passions with my self-image and not beating myself up for any incongruities with that ideal image. I have no idea why I'm saying this during this post, but it's something I have to get off my chest. I am super grateful for all the support I've gotten from the blogging community, my family, and finally my friends because I've finally mustered up the nerve to come out of my fashion closet, at least a little.
A book is simply binding, covers, and paper if it's not read - the same goes for a blog. I thank everyone who has visited Pandaphilia, left sweet comments, tweeted with me, and subscribed over the past year and given me so much love. I couldn't be happier! ♥
