Blog Angels Halfway Linkup

Hey y'all!
I don't know if you knew,
but I've been participating in an awesome little project called
Blog Angels

[I'm hopin they decide to do another one next month, for all you peeps that might want to give it a go]

Well part of the parameters of participating was being willing to do a half way post
detailing how the project has been for you so far.
So guess what? That's what I'm here to do.
It's also still ultra hush hush who and how you're helping,
so it'll be a better more fun surprise at the end.
So I'm gonna borrow the questions that Rosie shot us
in an ultra helpful reminder to get our butts on board!

What have you learnt about yourself from helping another blogger?
I enjoy supporting others. I kind of already knew that, but at the same time, doing it on a consistent basis has really helped me to grow in blogging. A more consistent shout out on twitter/facebook as well as helping to support publicize/participate in whatever I can has been a lot of fun.

What has been the most fun thing about being a Blog Angel? What has been the most frustrating?
I think the most fun is seeing the happiness that a simple thing like 'good job!' makes people. I know it does it to me. since I've been trying to get myself out there on a more regular basis, I've been getting more comments of my own as well, so I know how awesome they are. The most frustrating? Probably the fact that I don't have her on my blog feed. (which come to think I might have found a way to make sure). So I have to make sure to remember every morning to go see her instead of just catching the newest story on my daily feed.

Has being a Blog Angel changed your approach to blogging? How?
It has. I think mostly because it's showed me how it does take a bit of effort to write a supportive message, and that getting feedback on a message is really super cool. So it's made sure that I take the time to reply to every single one I get. Also, it's given me more courage to do things that I want to do instead of what I think other people might like. (coincidence, turns out they're usually the same thing)

How have you made time to help someone else out?
I make sure every morning, in amongst the daily skimming/reading I do of everyone else's blog, I make sure to go check in with her. See what she's doing? Check on her tweets. See if I can help promote anything or comment.

Have you been trying to work out who is helping you or are you more concerned with helping others?
Goodness I have absolutely no idea who mine is. I haven't been trying too much. I've been so busy with giveaways and all that kind of stuff that I haven't given it much thought. but whoever you are, thank you so much! Because I know I've felt a lot of love lately.

How does being a Blog Angel affect your experience of blog land?
I think it's brought me a lot closer in the community. Before, I was beginning to kind of step a toe in to see what it was like and finding it amazing. I'm beginning to get more immersed, more involved, more friendly with everyone. Did you know that nearly everyone who has a blog is like totally sweet and cool? At least all I've run into. Must run in the genes ;)

TO her
I've had fun following you along so far.
and I hope that I've been doing a good enough job of boosting your spirits.
I know that I could be doing more, somehow,
I'm sure of it. And hopefully I'll be struck with a bolt of genius.


  1. This is such a lovely post. I am glad you are getting lots out of the experience and that you are enjoying helping your blogger! Thank you so much for taking part. Also, love the flower in your blog design. :)
