Do you remember that time when the internet was suddenly all about guilty pleasures? When people were trying so hard to make a point of writing about them? 17 Food Guilty Pleasures, 25 Guilty Pleasures on Television, 90 Guilty Pleasures in 90’s Music, A Girl’s Guilty Pleasures, A Dude’s Guilty Pleasures, A Dog’s Guilty Pleasures, A Blogger’s Guilty Pleasures… You name it, it’s out there somewhere. I was not at all impressed by this trend that was flooding my Facebook timeline. There is, however, one guilty pleasure that I’ll admit to. Just one. And just one time. I’m never mentioning the words ‘guilty pleasure’ ever again after this post. Promise.
I have seen quite some trends over the years. I started my first blog when I was around 12 years old, constantly experimenting with HTML and changing the layout of my page every so many weeks. There were times when I was so addicted to it that I changed it once or twice a week. I created countless collages of my favorite celebrities and used them as the main focus of my greatly creative webpage. My blog ‘featured’ Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jesse McCartney (about 100 times), Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron… And probably a dozen others who at that time was interesting to me because of a cool (teen) song, movie or other type of entertainment.
