A Post Just for You (yes… you!)

THANK5These past few months of blogging have been quite the whirlwind. I started off with no clue at all what this thing would turn into, or where to even begin. I had been searching for a way to write, and to make a difference, but also to be able to open myself up to whatever opportunities the world might present through a blog.

I have been beyond amazed at how much exposure I have gotten in such a short amount of time. With numerous friends sharing links on Facebook and pinning my photos, I am blown away by the amount of support you have all given me! THANK YOU!

Thank you. Thank you.

And thank you.

I can’t say it enough.

The responses I have gotten in private, on Facebook, and in the comments from many of you have been completely overwhelming. Wanting to make a difference was and is my main passion, and your responses have made it worth every moment I have put into this “little” project.

I want to do some things that will help me get to know you better. Because YOU are why I write.

  • I know of a good handful of you who are keeping up to date via Facebook, but I’d love to have a better visual of who’s following! There is a little Subscribe button on the side of the page. (If you are on your mobile device then scroll down to the very bottom of the page and you’ll see it!) It’s a very simple process and the easiest way to stay up to date on when I’m posting. I promise I won’t spam you 🙂
  • I have nearly 800 followers right now!! AMAZING! I don’t know how you guys made this happen, but you did. I am SO interested in the impact that my posts are making on you/ any suggestions you have for me/ any feedback or response to things I’m writing about! I want to get to know each and every one of you. I wanna learn from you and see whats happening in your life. I want to know what you are passionate about, and why you keep reading. So let’s hear it! In case you don’t know there is a little comment box at the bottom of each post page. Feel free to use it. If you haven’t yet please leave me a little hello, so I know you’re here! I can’t wait to meet you!
  • If you have a business/ website/ blog/ etsyshop that you’d like me or my followers to check out then please tell me about it! I am always searching for new fun things to look at and find inspiration from. We are all here to help each other out, and what better way than a little networking? I want to be able to support your small businesses and good causes. I would LOVE to start sharing you with my followers and helping you get some exposure. Sponsorship side bar space will be available on my page for $25 for a full month as well as a link in each of my posts for that given month. Email me at bemyintention@gmail.com for inquiries. I would love to give you a little extra support as a thank you for supporting me!
  • Last but most importantly: What do you want to see more of this year? I am interested to hear what your favorite types of posts have been, and what you’d like to learn more about. Why do you keep coming back to bemyintention? Are you hoping read anything specific? I want honesty here, so if you have any suggestions for layout changes or anything else I am dying for your opinion! Your requests keep me learning about new topics and keep things interesting for everyone!

Thank you all again for EVERYTHING you’ve given me over the last few months. This has been the most incredible experience and I am looking forward to seeing what the New Year has in store!

With Love.

    Hey girl! I am a fairly new beginner blogger (as of December 2014) and looking for a little advice. How did you get your email subscribers number up? I comment on people’s blogs everyday, am a Pinterest FANATIC, have Insta, Twitter, etc and post regularly! I am a social media pro and love communicating with others. I think I’m doing a great job but my email subscriber list is going slower than I anticipate! Just looking for a little blogger to blogger advice 😉 Your blog is so incredibly amazing! So glad I stumbled upon it today. Thanks pretty lady!

      Gosh where do I even start?!
      Honestly a BIG part of it was luck. I think. Or something like that haha. I post regularly to Facebook and share all of my posts there so that truly is where the majority of my following has come from. I’d say the second thing is just from Instagram. I’m all over it. All the time haha.
      Fortunately/unfortunately the time period when I boosted my following a lot was when I started doing my capsule wardrobe! It was never my intention to be a fashion blogger so that part surprised me when people took to it so much. My number jumped an insane amount when I started posting about something that apparently a large community is interested in. It’s AMAZING that that helped however it’s the one thing on my blog I’m not quite as passionate about as the others. But it gives me a nice break and is still definitely something I enjoy and find a great amount of purpose in.
      Id say find a niche that grabs people’s attention. But be patient 🙂 cuz to be honest I have a ton of following but minimal interaction… And I’d really rather have it the other way around! So make sure you’re writing about what you’re passionate about and then the RIGHT followers will come. If you’re doing this for the followers and fame you’re gonna get burnt out. If you do it for you then people will follow 🙂
      I hope that helped a little! Can’t wait to check out your blog! What area do you live in?

        Aw thank you so much for the detailed, thoughtful reply! I love blogging and it has completely changed my life. I know what you mean, the interaction, new friendships and communication is the best part about blogging! And I firsthand experienced what you are talking about with choosing a niche! I first started out my blog hoping to do mostly fashion and self-improvement…I realized that I was much more gifted at writing self-improvement and self-help posts, which is now what my focus is on. In fact I think I only have done one fashion post! Plus..I love fashion but wasn’t really exactly sure how to “blog” about fashion. Your insta is soo cute! I am very active with my Instagram and Twitter but for some reason I am nervous to start a Facebook page and have people I know reading what I write! I think I worry too much what other people think when I know I shouldn’t. I’ve posted three posts so far to my personal Facebook page and got very positive feedback so I have been thinking about it. Thank you so much for the advice and reassurance…I read many blogs a day but for some reason, yours really sticks out to me! I think you write very beautifully and I am impressed with how much you truly care about your readers. That is so, so important! 🙂 Look forward to connecting more and reading more of your future posts. Oh, and I am from Green Bay, Wisconsin! Where are you from? 🙂 Take care, Kylie! :
