I am so excited to finally be sharing my newly designed/branded blog! This change from Sincerely, Syd to Anchored in the South is a huge milestone in my blogging career, and I can't wait to see what this new blog has to offer me. Today, I wanted to take a look back at all the things I accomplished while writing Sincerely, Syd. Goodness knows that my first few months of blogging could be compared to middle school, embarrassing and horrific. I'm warning you now, not to look at any of my posts made in 2014! But I am proud of where my blog is now, so without further ado let's take a look at my lovely memories thus far:

Collaborating with a lot of fabulous bloggers & brands:

Bloggers Get Cookin' Linkup (I was so proud that I only messed up one batch) // Scentbird

Turning 17 and no longer being able to sing "I am sixteen going on seventeen"

My First Outfit Photos which are always fun to look back at for a good laugh!

Being nominated several times for the Liebster Blog Award!

Hosting my own linkup!!

And most importantly, I am SO incredibly grateful for everyone that I have met through blogging. It is a very unique and welcoming community, and unlike anything I've ever been apart of. I sincerely thank you if you have ever commented on my blog, liked one of my pixelated photos on Instagram, or just simply decided to stop for a quick moment. I love that I have this little piece of the internet that I can call mine and be able to share with all of you! The outlet that blogging provides me is something that I cherish...Okay this is starting to sound like a Nicholas Sparks novel. I will let you get on your way, and I do hope you stop by soon!

Other Quick Announcements:

I have just reopened my Ad Shop, where you can directly purchase ad spots
on my blog. With the new relaunch I thought it'd be a great way to include a few promo codes. If you are interested in purchasing my Newsletter Feature Ad you can use the code RELAUNCH for $5 off. Unfortunately I only have one spot open, but I still have other advertising opportunities.

With that being said, feel free to subscribe to Anchored in the South's Email Newsletters. It's an easy way to stay updated with my blog! Only one email will be sent out each month to prevent spam because that's never fun!


  1. I'm so obsessed with your blog's new look! Congrats on this huge step in the right direction! Can't wait to see what other great things you do with Anchored in the South!

    1. Thank you so much Rebecca, I'm very excited as well!!

  2. Oh my gosh, I LOVE it! Is that a picture of you underneath the hey y'all? Can't wait to see everything you do as Anchored in the South!


    1. I'm so glad you like it Katie!! And yes, that's me in the picture! I tried out a twisty hair tutorial from Pinterest, and it actually turned out pretty well!:)
