Happy 3rd Birthday Day Through the Sole!

On this day in 1952, Elizabeth the II was proclaimed the Queen of England. In economic news, the NASDAQ, the world's first electronic market, opened for trading.

In shoe news, on this day in 2010, Through the Sole: A Shoe Blog was founded.

I want to thank all my readers, my friends, and family for their continued support. 

In the past year, I have written about a variety of topics, including the history of the stiletto, Madonna's new shoe line, and Kate Middleton judging a shoe contest.

The first post of the third year was on Linsanity, which kicked off a sneaker theme, such as how to shop for sneakers, and new sneakers made of a woven material

This year, I also looked at using shoes for a cause. Although shoes are often thought of as frivolous, they are a necessity. In Detroit, they are using recycled material to protect the feet of the homeless.

Through the Sole took on a more personal tone as I wrote about my experiences living through Superstorm Sandy, and documenting my experience through the lens of shoes. For the first time I share pictures of myself and my neighborhood in order to illustrate the devastation and the help we have recieved. 

The social media presence of Through the Sole expanded this year, including joining Pinterest, and a new Twitter handle solely dedicated to this blog, @throughthesole. Through the Sole now has its own e-mail, Please send me your thoughts and comments. Through the Sole's Facebook presence is going strong and gaining more likes. Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter give me more ways to communicate with my readers and the ability to post more updates, including pictures and updates during the height of Superstorm Sandy.

It is an honor to help inform you about world events and to help you find that next great pair of shoes.

Here's to another great year!

As always, please let me know what you would like to see on this blog.
