It’s Our First Birthday!

Wowsers! What a whirlwind our first year has been. Last April, IMAGEdaily, now affectionately known as IMAGE magazine’s digital sister, came into existence with a rocking party and our live supermodel shoot.?After a good few months of dreaming it all up, it was so sweet to see the site come to life. And come to life it literally did. The site filled up with wonderful words and beautiful images. We photographed houses, foodies and fashion designers. Talked to beauty mavens, graphic designers, writers and retail renegades beating the recession.

Our panel of contributors grew and continues to grow. I consistently love the words of Jenny Coyle, Ann Marie O’Connor and Vandra Costello and of course our in-house ?ber-talented word-slingers. Fear & Loathing by?Roisin Agnew, and Star Trekking by?Jeanne Sutton are on my constant re-read list. There are’many more of the IMAGE publications crew who manage to somehow share their output with us despite their manic production schedules, so to them all, a great big thank you.

We’ve had a lovely growth spurt lately too, more and more of you are logging on, reading and sharing our content, so I thank you for that.

So what’s in store for our second year? Well, we have some more great writers coming on board, some super-exciting awards in the pipeline and a great programme of cute little events where we’re going to get to hang out- with you! We’re fans of a great party here at IMAGEdaily, so there’s more to come and we can’t wait. Oh, and of course, there’s more content. Six posts most days, so keep on clicking, darlings!

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy our collection of some of your favourite posts from the last year. Oh, and please do come to our first birthday party in the video below!

Cake anyone?
