on May 1, 2013, discountthief.com celebrated its one year blogging anniversary. if you're new around these parts, here's the background on why this blog was started.
over the course of this first year, i've been observing and making notes as to what's going on in the style blogging space. to be quite frank: i don't see many bloggers keeping up with the ever-changing landscape.
blogs haven't been redesigned to accommodate mobile viewing, many bloggers are still relying on intrusive pop-up ads as a means of making money without regard to their readers' overall experience, and last but not least - veteran bloggers, who've been repeatedly shoved in our faces as the authorities on this subject, are offering the same blogging best practices they've been touting since 2008.
this video is the first in an installment where i share my perspective and advice. if your interest in blogging doesn't go beyond a hobby and/or receiving free products - click away now. this wasn't meant for you.

to clarify: when i stated sometimes i question why i even started a style blog, i say that from the point of view of me not being the typical glammed up style blogger you see on a daily basis. my core focus for this blog was and always will be about saving money. an "outfit of the day" and accompanying Instagram selfie aren't required.
now i want to know what YOU think. did you break any blogging rules or wish you had? how do you really feel about fashion blogging or blogging in general?
