We All Start Somewhere

16 Nov

I love discovering new blogs. I actually found a few new ones to add to my Google Reader this week.

One of my favorite things to do when I find a new blog I really, really like and that is very well done is to look at their very first post. It’s always a positive reminder to me that all bloggers have to start somewhere, and that many of the bloggers we follow and for lack of a better word, idolize, all got their start the exact same way the rest of us did. It’s funny how many of them had tiny site images, somewhat forgettable outfit posts, and posted more re-posted content than original content.

Here are some screenshots (and links to the posts) of some of my favorite bloggers.  For example purposes, these are bloggers who’s sites I know get a ton of traffic.  I follow bloggers of all sorts so these are just a sampling of who I know are some of the most popular ones for the fashion/personal style circuit.
