Ashley from 5ohWifey started this series back in February. Trial By Sapphire was only a week old, but I figured I had nothing to lose! I'm so glad I linked up back when I had all of 13 readers, because I met so many other women who have become real friends of mine. Since the first link-up, I've been a big fan of Ashley, and it's been fun to watch her adventures with her growing baby girl unfold and to see the increasing popularity of The Girl Behind The Blog. Ashley is an amazing woman, and I appreciate that she is always willing to listen to others and that she encourages them to express their opinions, whether they are the same as hers or not. She writes honestly and with tact, not to mention a lot of humor! Needless to say, I was stupefied by joy when she invited me to be her co-host this month! So here I am! This is, to me, my 15 minutes of blog fame as Ashley's co-host!
As soon as Ashley invited me to co-host, I knew what I wanted to pitch to her! Lucky for me, she agreed, and well, I've been busting as the seams and trying to keep it a secret for weeks! There are always things that I put on the back burner, because life gets busy or I forget. Months will go by, and I think, "Ugh, I still need to do that."
Raise your hand if you're in the same boat.
*looking out into a sea of raised hands*
Whew! It's nice to see I'm not the only one.
Now is the time to share the small milestones, lifestyle changes, and monumental dreams that you've had on the back burner! What better place to share those things than a supportive community? Who knows what kind of good advice you may get from a reader or other blogger? If nothing else, at least you'll have said it aloud, and possibly, gained a second wind to make it happen! You can share something things like:
"I want to run a 10k."
"I will try one new recipe per week."
"I've been dreaming of starting my own business."
"I need to be mindful of time spent with my family vs. blogging and social media."
"I'm nervous about it, but I want to record a vlog." Oh, hey! Look at that! Mission accomplished.
Next Wednesday, July 25 (one week from today), we invite YOU to let the blogging community in on a something you're hoping to begin, accomplish, or change. And maybe make a few new friends! All you have to do is follow both of our blogs, grab the button below to share on your blog, and post a short vlog answering the following questions. You'll only have to link up on one of the host's blogs because our links will be interlinked. We really hope you join us! Spread the word, and let's get to know each other a little better! Make your video your own, but please try to stick to these prompts and the time limit.
