We've Come A Long Way

Wow! Just looking back at old posts and how the blog used to look... Its crazy! Its the first month of 2011 and we already have 122 blog posts in. The month isn't even over yet. And back in 2009 we had 88 posts within 5 months time... The work put into the blog since those days has grown a lot! I can remember what the blog used to look like... Its honestly crazy think about it. It was just black and white, with the word ADEEN! in all capitals. January of 2010 was the start of things to come for us. I had first linked up with Great Scott and Jovany and linked up with Diggy. With that jump start we worked our BUTTS off in 2010. We managed to muster up 1083 blog posts on blogger. Not including those posts we made on NBRHD! 2010 was an amazing year for Jovany and I. We've seen ups and downs but over all... I'd say this has been an amazing year. We launched our brand and actually started making things. 
And As far as views, its just been incredible! We used to get little to no views everyday. And now... Our views are about 1000+. Well, our page views are around 2000+, our visits are 1000+. I don't mean to come off as braggy or anything... Just I'm happy... I feel a bit accomplished. By no means do I feel I am successful. Or satisfied with where I am, I won't be happy until I get at LEAST 10,000 visits a day. I won't be happy until I have an established brand with, freedom to create whatever I think of. But to get there... Its all about YOU. The reader. Those daily visits. You may think its just a blog, and its just one of dozens you visit a day. But... its more than that... Those numbers and those visits, and those views on videos and even the comments you guys give us, help us get certain deals with people and brands. We can go to meetings and present that as WHY these people should deal with us. Because in the real world its not about what you can design that necessarily will get you a deal, but if you can sell that. If you can get people to SEE it and be interested in it. With the visits and views and comments you HELP ADEEN become bigger and better. 
Although we have been getting better and better in time, as we gain experience and knowledge, we are always still learning. Trying to find new ways we can expand and become better. Our best month was in August, (as far as visits and views are concerned) and best believe that I go back every week to see what it was that we were doing right. To me it was the hustle! It was the month before the pins ACTUALLY dropped. It was when I was blogging the most and I was soooo dedicated to each post and promoting the blog in anticipation of the release. And after the release I focused more on the pins and sales. So I kind of let the blog slip. But No more! I want to get comments like we used to. I want people to be excited like they were. I know its REAL hard work to run a blog as perfectly as I'd like to you. But for you guys sake and for our sake. I think it must be done. Back To Doing USTREAMS, Back to photo shoots, back to just being a great blog and a great Brand. I promise you guys. And I promise to go through with my promises. 4-5 blog posts a day at least. And I know this is a lot to read but this comes from the heart and the head. Love you guys for being with us for more than a year now. Thank you! And Now finally... A trip down Memory lane of previous looks :D
