Jewelry Fashion Tips is 5 Years Old!

I actually had to go check my calendar, but yep…it was back on April 8, 2011, I started this blog. How can it be that five years has flown by so quickly? I thought I’d share with you how this blog ever came to be.

I was dating a professional blogger, and we were driving home from dinner over in Half Moon Bay. This is how the conversation went down:

Him: “I think you should start a jewelry blog. You are so passionate about jewelry, and it would fit in perfectly with your image consulting business.”

Me: “Are you frickin’ crazy?! I have no idea what I’d write about!”

Him: “OK, get out a piece of paper, and start writing down article ideas. Tell me when you get to 50.”

I started jotting down ideas and continued the list when we got back to my apartment. I got to 50 without even really trying too hard. I couldn’t believe I had all these ideas swimming around in my head. Who knew?!

About 30 minutes later he said, “Go to JewelryFashionTips.com. ¬†It’s yours.” I did, and this is what I saw…

I was shocked, I was excited, and I told him, “I HATE the name! Why can’t I have something cute and catchy?” He explained it was a name which would be searchable online, and he was right. (Damn it! I hate when he’s right.) Organic search is still the #1 way people find my blog.

So now, 5 years later, I still have barely made a dent in my original 50 topic ideas, and I can’t stop writing. Thank you to Jeff, who’s still my bestie and blog master, to the talented people I’ve met in the fascinating world of jewlery, and to you, my fabulous readers. I cannot thank you all enough for your continued support!

Now, time to eat that dee-lish chocolate and coconut cupcake from Kara’s that I purchased¬†to shoot the photo. Cheers! xoxo
