Blog Birthday, Blog Future

Image via
My blog is a year old! It was officially a year ago on Saturday that I published my first post, but better to celebrate late than never. 177 posts later, here's a look back at some of my favorite moments from my first year of blogging. 

4. I shared my secrets for dealing with chub rub. (and I realize now that I never posted part two of that series)

You're probably noticing a trend here. All of my favorite posts are focused around body image or feminist issues. Anyone who knows me "in real life" would not be surprised to hear that, but I'm not sure that I've represented myself the best in the blog world. I've been feeling a little disenchanted with blogging lately. For one, I've been incredibly busy. I also haven't really felt like taking pictures of myself and talking about my clothes all the time. I love clothes but I hate feeling like I don't have the freedom to write about other things. 

So I'm going to mix things up a little on here, and I hope you'll stick with me. I'm definitely not doing away with outfit posts or wish lists, but I anticipate a little more feminism and a lot more personality. 

What would you like to see from Hips and Hangers in my second year of blogging? 


  1. Happy blogiversary! I think you should take the blog in whatever direction makes you happy :) I'll certainly be sticking around!

  3. Happy one year! It's always so fun reading bloggers' first posts :) And I totally love the chub rub tips...I actually cut stockings and wear them as biker shorts under skirts/dresses in the summer!

  4. Happy anniversary! I loved all of those posts. Like you, my favorites are the "heavier" posts I write. I can't wait to see where this next year takes you!

  5. Congrats on 1 year of blogging!! So happy for you! You should definitely write about what makes you happy :)

  7. Yay, it's great to see you back! I always look forward to your posts and please, don't ever feel that all you have to do is talk about clothes. I love your feminist posts and your views on it, it's sort of a view that I think is lacking a little bit in the "fashion/style" blogging world and I admire you so much for how you dress issues and all of your work and the organizations that you work with in your down time. I would really like to see maybe your thoughts on feminism and how it relates to personal style, but anything you write, I'll read. :)

    Oh and happy blog b-day with your one year of blogging!

  8. CONGRATS!! All the best to you this year. May 2013 be filled with many blessings.
