Subscribe to Blog Trends Chat

Happy Wednesday Everybody! I was reading through the comments from yesterday's post and was deeply touched by your responses. A lot of what you ladies wrote in your comments, is exactly what I was thinking and feeling. I appreciate your candor and thank you for sharing your thoughts. It helped me and I know it helped others.

If anyone missed yesterday's post I encourage you to read the responses. They're very enlightening, encouraging, uplifting and proves there are many AWESOME bloggers out there. I also encourage you to subscribe to their blogs. I responded to well over half of the comments (they were amazing!) and will finish responding today. I have to get my income tax done today. LOL :P

After reading the comments of yesterday's post, I want you to know there is a wonderful support system for bloggers called Blog Trends: The Twitter Chat For Fashion Bloggers. You can also find them on Twitter @BlogTrendsChat. I was introduced to Blog Trends Chat by fellow blogger and co-founder Lindsay of Black & Blonde towards the end of last year (Thank You Lindsay!). Bloggers meet EVERY MONDAY at 9pm on Twitter and discuss things that we think, worry and are concerned about as it relates to blogging. ONE topic is discussed every Monday. Topics include:

  • Blogging Etiquette
  • Promoting Your Blog
  • Getting Inspired & Standing Out
  • Writing Tips & Tools
  • Photo Tips & Tools
  • ...and So Much More!

I really think you guys would like it (their topics have truly helped me) and Membership is FREE! Use the link above to sign up and you'll get a cool badge to display on your website (as shown at the very bottom of my blog). I haven't physically participated in awhile (bad kimmy), but you can never miss a beat because they post their transcripts on their website. I strongly encourage participation, because your input is invaluable for other bloggers and it's a great way to connect and MEET other bloggers.

*this is not a sponsored post, I just like to spread awareness of "tools" that are out there to help bloggers. Blog Trends Chat is a site I frequent and I feel you would like it too. :)

...And Now! The Winner of the 250 Stickers from PrintRunner Is...
Congratulations Laura! 
I am forwarding your name and email address to PrintRunner. Enjoy!


A BIG Thank You to PrintRunner for providing such a wonderful giveaway prize for my readers. PrintRunner is your convenient online printing resource. Check out their custom sticker printing services.

Everybody Have A Great Day!

I just saw your comment! Thank you, you are always so kind! I do try and comment on other blogs, although I don't have as much time to as I'd like, but it seems that once I have started following someone they stop commenting. I try to form relationships but they always seem to fizzle... I am at a loss, I have been doing this for eleven months and it is just hard to keep up with it all. Over the summer I hope to form some new relationships.

BlogTrends really is a great idea. I'm so glad it exists. Even if I don't get to participate as much as I'd like I still read it every week. It's so nice getting ideas and knowing that I'm not alone.

Marion said...

Sounds like an awesome Twitter group to meet other bloggers, gain insight and perhaps a whole new perspective on a topic! Thanks so much for sharing it with us on your blog Kim. I participate in #BlogBrunch once a month, but it's on the weekends which often makes it hard.

Anyway, I always love to hear about bloggers encouraging other bloggers!
