I’ve reached a milestone here at Exile Lifestyle: 200 posts on the site since I started.
And though a few of those were guest posts, and I’ve written more than a few guest posts on other sites, I still wanted to commemorate the event with a little roundup of notable scribblings from the history of the blog.
For example, I get asked all the time about how to start up a blog and establish a brand and voice. I want to show you this as evidence that it took me a little while to get my style established, and in fact my very first post was incredibly bulky, tiresome and overly-verbose.
Below is just a big list of other posts that caught my eye as I ran down the archive (for one reason or another), and if you have only started recently reading the blog, you may find something new there.
These are in chronological order, with the oldest at the top, so you’ll be able to see a bit of evolution along the way (I hope!).
