Happy 1 Year Blogiversary!


One year ago today, I was sitting on my couch at home with my mom and best friend. I told them that I wanted to start a blog but I needed help with a name for it.

Together we came up with, From Queen to Queens. 

For any new readers, my middle name means Queen and I believe that every woman is a queen in her own right. Therefore the name was definitely fitting. I began with wanting it to be a self-help, inspirational blog and after a while I ventured into a few race relation topics. Now, a year later I’ve decided to expand the content we cover. I’ll still be focusing on helping and up building you Queens, so don’t worry. The only thing changing is that you’ll have so much more to relate to. I’m excited and I hope that you are as well. Wednesday’s post, ‘Monochromatic Fashion, Done Right’, was just a glimpse of the new content.

Now one year later, I’m on the same couch typing on the same computer… It’s honestly a nostalgic moment for me. I’m a pretty emotional person so when I think of all the things that you all have said and all of the kind words, I’m truly taken aback. The blog has been viewed in Spain, Italy, South Africa, India, and more. I couldn’t be more thankful. If I’m able to touch just one person with this, I’ll know I’ve done my job.

In honor of a year, let’s reminisce on the things that we’ve covered. Here are the 5 most viewed articles of all time. Feel free to read any that you haven’t or reread the ones that you have. Enjoy!

  1. Requested: Sex Before Marriage (A Woman’s View)

  2. An Open Letter to My Sisters…

  3. Bruised… not Broken

  4. The love you deserve? [Part 1]

  5. Dealing with “pint” people

From Me to You, tons and tons of Love.
