WOW! Last week, I found out that CHAPTER FRIDAY is nominated for a Bloglovin’ Award as Newcomer of the Year. Even just being nominated is a huge honor to me (previous winners have been Olivia Palermo and Chiara from The Blonde Salad) and I really want to thank all of you.
When I made a new move and turned my personal style blog This chick’s got style into an inspiration platform six months ago, it was quite an exciting decision. It wasn’t one without risks though, as I had no idea how my long-term readers and commercial partners would react. But as I was getting daily e-mails of girls asking me how to make it in fashion or blogging, I knew that many of you were looking for more in-depth information, for personal experiences and inspiring career stories that you won’t easily come by online. Girl power is where it’s at!
How it all started
Spending the beginning of the year in LA gave me the opportunity to look at the bigger picture and think about the future of blogging – or at least my small part in it. And so… after months of late nights at the office (are those under eye bags ever going to go away?!), CHAPTER FRIDAY was born. An online toolbox packed with career, fashion and lifestyle tips for young ambitious women.
Thanks for your love and support!
I’m still overwhelmed, incredibly proud and humbled by how positive you – my dear readers and followers – have responded to the big change. Me and my team are working on improving the website every single day, and being up for a Bloglovin’ Award really feels like the cherry on top of the cheesecake after six years of blogging. (I’m a blogging dinosaur by now!).
And where to vote…
Honestly, I can’t thank you enough for your love, support and trust in six unforgettable years of blogging. It would mean the world to me if you would vote (which you can do here) for CHAPTER FRIDAY, which is the first Dutch blog ever to be nominated. Let’s take this baby home from New York!
THE BLOGLOVIN’ AWARDS TAKE PLACE AT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK ON SEPTEMBER 7TH. VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITES (CHAPTER FRIDAY FOR THE WIN!) HERE. THANK YOU! LOVE, YARA
