This November coming up I will officially be celebrating my two year blog anniversary. I cannot believe how the time has flown. Blogging has opened the doors for so many opportunities and allowed me to get to know so many amazing women. I pretty much text/snap/email at least 10 or more bloggers on a daily basis. I have always loved writing and researching everything to the extreme (if you haven’t noticed). Having this outlet to share my life and finds has been such a fulfilling experience.
Before I had my own blog, I was what you would consider a “closet” reader. I didn’t have my own blog but would read 5-10 blogs on a daily basis. I always read Christina’s, Helene, Cely (she is hilarious) Whitney (she has updated in a long time) and other random fitness blogs. I would read their words and stories and wanted to respond but I felt like since I wasn’t a blogger…..could I do that? Like who is this random stalker girl who is reading their blog and writing a comment. I felt so awkward. Here is the thing, it’s not awkward at all, I promise!
This is my reach out to all the “non-bloggers” who read blogs. I know exactly what you are doing right now. Sitting at work, needing a ten minute break to find some local inspiration on the new restaurant that opened. Or you didn’t know that Sephora is having a sale but hello now you do after that post and you are totally going to pull the trigger on the glamglow mask. Or maybe you just need a good laugh in between your meetings. That was me. I know you are out there.
Reach out. Tell me who you are. What things about my blog keep you coming back for more? Do you like the fitness posts, product reviews, local restaurant spots, or my general musings about running into garage doors? Let me know!
I can’t tell you how excited I get when I get an email from someone out in the Midwest who is a fellow barre addict or that picked up one of my hippie girl products and is totally digging it. Or someone who just likes coming for a daily laugh. It makes my day when they reach out and tell me why they identify with what I have to say and what keeps them coming back. My first question usually back to them is, “tell me how you stumbled on my site?” I always love to know through which avenue lead to this little ole spot of mine.
So here is my public service announcement for the day. We are not all bloggers who read blogs. I used to be part of the “non-bloggers club” if you will. I never felt like I could comment on someones blog because I felt super awkward about it. Please comment! I respond to every single email. I love getting to know everyone who stops by. If you still feel weird about commenting (which I hope by now you know is totally 100% fine please do!) shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
Tell me what posts you like reading the best. Which posts you roll your eyes and skip over. What keeps you coming back for more and if you like me telling you random Amanda life musings. This goes for all the blogging gals as well. Stop by and give me some feedback. I love hearing what people like and don’t like.
Now to all my “non-bloggers” out there, if you are totally digging the blog, I ask this of you. Please share it with your friends! Tweet about it, share it on your Facebook, email your fellow barre addicts about it. Share the love. I promise there is plenty of me to go around. At the bottom of every blog post there is a + Share sign. Click it and you can see all the ways you can share your favorite daily read over here ;-)
I hope this has helped! Trust me I was right there with you and I promise, I am always excited to hear from you. I hope you have a fabulous day!! xoxoxo
