Milestones & Coming Soon…

glosslogosleekwpQuickly and quietly, without any hubub, The Gloss Menagerie turned five years old this month. I am now going to say all the clichés people expect, that I couldn’t do this without all of you, and how happy I am for all of your support– but I really mean that. The people I have met and things I have been able to do both personally and in my career just because of running this site are completely beyond my imagination 5 years ago. I’m not one of the most successful bloggers by any means, but I have been able to achieve a simple dream that I think anyone can relate to. I can honestly say I love my career. If you didn’t know or realize, I work for Allegro – a division of Conair. Yup, that Conair. And I truly can say I love nearly every minute of it. ;) I never would be where I am if I hadn’t started this website five years ago, and I certainly wouldn’t have kept on doing this if all of YOU hadn’t been there for me. I feel blessed and grateful. Thank you.

As a present to myself, and to all of you, I recently began working with a designer to redesign the site. Many of you have probably already seen some changes from other bloggers due to the new FTC guidelines (*joy*), and I haven’t rushed in to do them just yet because I want to incorporate them into the new design that is coming up soon. :) I just wanted to give you guys a heads up in case you see anything wonky with the site over the next few weeks, because it probably means we’re pulling on wires behind the scenes. I appreciate your patience. It’s all for the better! ;)

In the meantime, as I am doing this redesign, I’m curious to know what your favorite / least favorite features on beauty blogs are! Hit up the comments with your likes/dislikes.

And to those of you who were Google Reader followers, my condolences. I want to remind you that you can still keep up with the blog via Twitter, Facebook, Bloglovin’, and the RSS itself is linked above. If I get enough requests to add the feed on to any other services similar to Bloglovin’ I may do that too so just let me know. There is also the “old fashioned” method of having it emailed to you (I actually prefer that for blogs I love!). Let me know what you guys like and I’ll do mah bestest to make it happen!
