One Year

I almost forgot – last week was my one year blog anniversary! A year ago I started Feather Factor for a school project and I never thought 365 days later, there’d be almost one million views or that I’d still be writing the blog and creeping out my neighbors by taking tripod  photos outdoors. For that I owe my thanks to you, the readers.
Thank you very much for taking the time to stop here because I know there’s a lot else out there that you could be reading. I hope in March 2013 I can celebrate another year, and in the meanwhile if there are any suggestions for the blog – things you’d like to read about, topic ideas, constructive or even just barely constructive criticism – let me know, please. I would so appreciate it. Thank you again!

    I have not followed your blog for very long now, only just the past few weeks. I think however that you have a very beautiful and sophisticated style that inspires me in my outfit choices, too. I love reading the interviews you do with all different people because they are unique.
    I think you should continue just this way!
    I love and won't stop reading your posts and looking at your pictures, your hard work is great and I think it really pays off!
    All the Best!

    So funny about creeping out the neighbours! I could never do public pics, I'm the smudge in the mirror.

    Happy blog anniversary!

    I totally get your point, I mean, the sunglasses are just a piece of plastic, so where does that hefty price tag come from? Anyhoo, you look just amazing and stylish!

    Happy Monday!

    Congratulations on your one year anniversary, Katherine! I follow your blog because you're just so fun and down-to-earth. The fashion and food are just icing on the cake for me. Had to laugh at creeping out your neighbors. Goodness knows my neighbors must think I'm crazy when I crouch low in the garden to take photos. They've caught me piling iron chairs on the lawn once so that I could get "that shot"!

    – get readers to submit Qs for your weekly interview and perhaps pick 1 Q from a lucky reader for your interviewee;

    – post more entries on food (I'm a foodie!).
