I recently entered myself into a competition to be named Refinery29′s Next Big Style Blogger. Tomorrow they will be announcing five finalists, who will compete in “extreme blogger challenges” to take the title. I know it’s a long shot – I’ve been at this only a matter of months, a baby in the world of blogging – but I stand by my writing, really love this site and can’t help but hope for the opportunity to compete.
Refinery 29′s founding duo, Christene Barberich and Piera Gelardi, will be selecting finalists based on the quality of their submissions, but readers can show support by voting for their favorites. I’m overwhelmed by the positive feedback I’ve received thus far, already surpassing my personal goals. Thank you to everyone who has voted! In one final push to up my standing, I’m asking those of you who have not yet voted to please take a moment, visit the site, and click the heart by my name.
And while I’m taking care of a bit of blog business, I’d also like to send out some belated thanks. You may have seen the meme going around recently in which bloggers answer a few questions with lists about themselves then award 7 other bloggers with shout outs. I was incredibly honored and surprised to find myself on two such lists.
I’d like to say thank you to Neekoh of Live Love LA and Kaiami of Modern Princess. If you’re not familiar with their blogs, I encourage you to check them out. Neekoh’s look is the definition of west coast chic, and I love her outfit inspirations. Kaiami always brings a unique style, as well as a glimpse of her own fashion sketches and creations – I can already tell she will be a designer to watch.
Thank you again to everyone for visiting, following and supporting Covetous Creatures.
