Happy 1st Birthday Through the Sole!

Through the Sole was started in February 2010, so at its 1 year anniversary, I wanted to look back at how this blog has changed over the past year.

When Through the Sole was founded it was for a class I was taking as an undergraduate at Cornell University. When my class ended, I decide to restart the blog and make it more personal. Since then I have added pictures and videos to make the content more engaging. I have also covered events, such as the Washington, DC High-Heel Race and the Rally to Restore Sanity. I have also tried to make the posts useful and interesting, including tips on how to buy comfortable shoes.

Through the Sole can also now be found on Twitter and Facebook.

During this year, Through the Sole has been featured on ABC7 Eyewitness News and the Cornell University Communication Department’s Website.

By unique hits, the most popular posts have been The Controversial Ugg Boot, Like! Through the Sole joins Facebook, and Blister free, comfy feet: Part 2: How to make the high-heels you already own more comfortable.

Some other highlights include: Live-Blog: Footwear Choices of Cornell Students, Designing a Shoe, and Would you get married in the shoe aisle of T.J. Maxx?.

I recently started a sister blog on new media and its effects on society, Through and About New Media, so please check it out.

In the next year, I hope to continue providing engaging and useful content, such as tips, shoe and fashion news, more live-blogs, and my shoe purchases. After all, the best part of loving shoes is buying new pairs.

I appreciate my readers and everyone’s support. Please let me know what you would like me to write about!

Here’s to a great second year!
