2011 was a big year for Logical Harmony. The site went from being just another beauty and fashion blog to having a fresh new focus. After I decided to live a vegan lifestyle, Logical Harmony also took on an animal friendly tone. It’s been a lot of fun to grow and adapt over the past year. It’s also been great to see what a lot of my long-term readers have also grown and adapted with the changes at Logical Harmony as well. I’m so thankful for all the new readers, companies who have wanted to help my vision, all the other vegan bloggers who have inspired me, and everyone who has been supportive along the way. There are three amazing new contributors to the site and so many new things to share with the readers. I’m really looking forward to the future of Logical Harmon and seeing what’s in store for 2012.
With 2011 coming to an end, it’s time to kick back, sip some vegan champagne, and reflect on the best posts from Logical Harmony over this past year.
