... fashion blogging-wise:

1. Dear Anne's comment on my previous post:

[...] after following countess fashion blogs, I continue to follow only yours. This is because you are personable, you speak with your readers, you post with clear intention and make it relevant, unique and interesting to yourself rather than focusing on "being the first to do something" or what not.

I think this blog is a perfect example of what a fashion blog should be and I enjoy it very much :)

I always look forward to Anne's comments because they're insightful and get the conversation going (seriously, if Anne comments on your blog, you should be flattered! I am. Note that she's also a brilliant writer), but this one especially made me feel incredibly happy. It means so much to me that you (my readers) enjoy my work.

This is one of the greatest compliments I've ever received - in general, not just as a blogger. Thank you so much, Anne! :*

2. Remember my post about The Coveted vs. The Coveted controversy? The situation has resolved in Jennine's favor! So many bloggers were hoping for this outcome, but I think none of us could imagine it would happen this quickly. TheCoveted.com has rebranded as The Coveteur and will be using this name and domain from now on.

There's one good aspect to The Coveted imbroglio: it made us aware that we need to protect our work. Vahni's post about claiming your trademark on Grit & Glamour has been extremely helpful. If you're interested in how you can protect your brand online for free, I strongly recommend you read it.
