We’re Turning 2 Today!

Today marks two years since I started this brand. It’s crazy to see how it’s evolved so much over time. From an unknown blog, to a brand, and then to working with other brands, it’s been quite the journey! So excuse me if I gush a little.

Last January, I decided to re-focus my blog on mostly traveling. I remember feeling nervous that I wouldn’t have the content or that I would go broke because I would have to travel a lot more. But now I see that it was the best decision I could have made. Fast forward a year later, and I’ve written my first travel ebook. I can also proudly say that in the last two years, I’ve had an editorial go live every single week. I’ve not missed one week.

I am so proud of the work I’ve created week after week, and year after year. I’ve met some amazing people and got to work with great brands. I was bold and fearless. I took chances and I reached out to people who I thought would never give me a chance. People took chances on me and worked with me because of the content I created, not because of my following. Thank you to those people!

So without writing about all the crap that I’ve learned in the last two years, because it would literally be a list 100 things deep, I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you to all my readers and followers, and fellow boss girl bloggers who’s blogs I cannot stay away from (you know who you are).

Here’s to another freaking year! Happy two, Coat and Coffee.

  5. Happy blog birthday! Keep up the amazing work. Keeping at something and creating content, especially when you’re focused on one topic is certainly no easy feat and very commendable.

    I don’t know how you do it. I can’t even commit to doing 1 photo a day on insta let alone a blog post per week!

  6. Congratulation on two years! That is so exciting to look back and see the change and growth that’s happened. Can’t wait to see what this year will bring for your Coat + Coffee!
