Some of the most amazing experiences about blogging - but one I still have to get used to - is getting featured on websites and in magazines. When my friend Esmée told me that she'd seen my picture on She.be, I was totally surprised.
The article is written in Dutch, but it was somewhat emotional to read that the authors at She.be find me one of the most important and most famous bloggers in Limburg, the region where I live. It's completely surreal. I definitely don't see myself that way and it wasn't the reason why I started the blog. But nonetheless, it's very, very sweet of them. Other things the article talks about is my interview with Scott Schuman a.k.a. The Sartorialist (see here). It was my first big event and I was so nervous, I can't even describe it. I start to cringe now that I see my early lay out and writing. I definitely need to fix the lay out in my early posts ASAP. :D Another event they talk about is my interview with actress Elizabeth Hurley (see here) and my meeting with top model Anouck Lepère (see here).
Looking back on these events, I can't believe the opportunities I got thanks to this blog. Blogging is hard work, but I haven't regretted it for one single moment. The experiences I've been through, the people I've met... they are totally worth the tons of work and efforts I put into Shark Attack.
I'd also like to thank you, my readers. If it weren't for you, Shark Attack wouldn't have been what it is today. The sweet comments, tweets, emails... That's what keeps me going in the first place. God, I sound like a total cliché, but you know what they say: most of the clichés are true. So once again: thank you!
