Hi Freebs! Hi! I'm alive! I'm sorry it's been a ghost town over here *tumble weed rolls by*. Life has been crazy and something's got to give every once in a while. But I wanted to pop in quickly to announce that I'm doing a HUGE giveaway, as a thank you for helping me reach 30K followers on Facebook!
As I declared recently, I've decided not to follow any blog rules and just…do what feels right. This means good news and bad news. The bad news? I'm not blogging nearly as much as I'd like to. BUT…the good news? I've been pouring my heart and soul into social media! It's become my mini blog of sorts, especially over on Instagram where I share many tips, insights, tips, and snippets of my day, namely in my Instagram Stories. It has been so fun to connect with all of you on Facebook and YouTube as well, so I've really enjoyed exploring that side of the FCF family!
SO…Why a giveaway for reaching 30K followers on Facebook?
Sure. We all know I've basically thrown my middle finger in the air and have decided to detach myself from the “blogger norm“. I'm not loving what “blogging” has become, and I've decided to break all the “rules” and pave my own way (like seeing how many times I can use “quotations” in a sentence…). Same with social media. I've decided to toss all the “rules” out the window and turn my social media channels into a window into my life and mind, juuuuuuust in case someone somewhere somehow finds a sliver shred of help or hope in it.
So do I watch my stats much? Do I stress about my growth? Numbers? Analytics? Engagement and reach? Nah. Not really. (And for any bloggers reading this, it feels amazing. I highly recommend quitting “blogging”.)
It's not always easy to stay in touch with someone through social media. I'm well aware of that. Our feeds are inundated with ads, shops, brands, friends, family, strangers, celebrities, and random cat memes. It's also hard to create a relationship with someone on social media, because we tend to post our beautiful snippets and leave out the crazy, messy, realities of life.
So the fact that so many of you not only follow me on social media, but CONNECT and ENGAGE with me, means the world. I don't know if you know this, but I read every single comment and message. Always have. It's mildly OCD of me, but hey, let's call a spade a spade. I can't physically reply to all of them, but I read them and appreciate them. To take time out of your day, even if it's only a few seconds, to say hi, or offer a suggestion, or issue a compliment, or shoot me your favorite emoji (we all know I love a good emoji…) just means THE WORLD.
THUUUUSSSS….(wow did I get long-winded on this or what?…)
I want to spoil one of you by giving you ANY Lily Jade bag of choice!
