500 Followers!! A Real-Talk Thank You

That’s, right- Dolled Up by J has officially surpassed the 500 followers mark!

This is an amazing milestone considering I started this blog on a whim while putting off studying. I never thought I would reach even fifty followers. 500 followers means 500 of you fellow bloggers have decided my blog is awesome. In the blogging world, it is so much harder to acquire followers and regular readers than Twitter or Instagram followers, so this means a lot. I didn’t even have to spam people! (I see you random people and your linked comments……) No shade, to each their own, but that isn’t my style.

I’ve had his blog for about a year and a half and chose the honest, slow growth method because I wanted to gain followers for good content. I also still don’t have any photos of myself because I’d rather you follow me because you like my voice rather than my face. I’ve started to notice companies reach out to me for promotional posts, but I haven’t accepted to do any because no free product was offered- that’s just the truth. I mean, why would I collab with a brand I’ve never tried, and then tell you all it’s great?


Anywho, thank you to every single person who follows me, reads my posts, leaves a comment or simply scrolls through to  enjoy the photos. Every time I get your positive feedback and comments it’s so reassuring- especially because I’m not one to sugar coat anything. It’s been so much fun sharing my thoughts and (ample) opinions with you guys. I have so many great ideas and things to share coming up. Stayed tuned my beauties!

      Thank you Kaily!! I’m glad you agree about the spamming thing. I was hesitant to mention it because a lot of people do it, but a lot of people also find it annoying. Thanks for reading as always πŸ™‚ xo
