WE’RE BAACCKKK! I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break and had a safe and fun time celebrating the New Year! I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited to see what 2015 has in store! (:
Today’s special Tuesday post is to celebrate e31.’s six month anniversary. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six months and people are still following us! I honestly was not sure how this whole blogging thing would turn out when we first launched, but we were blessed to have a fantastic start in 2014 and I am excited to continue to grow and improve in this coming year. While it’s always intriguing to check the stats out every once in a while, I want to express that it really doesn’t matter if we have 1 or 1 million readers each week. As I mentioned in the launch post on August 6th of last year: if this blog helps at least one woman to find her own confidence, then I can still sit back and smile knowing that this is what e31. is all about!
There’s been plenty of people involved in e31. thus far and this post is dedicated to everyone who has been involved at any capacity! e31. would not be where it is today without you, so a huge, huge thank-you!
In our first six months, we had 8 guest bloggers featured as #TodaysE31. The typical reaction that I get when I ask people to guest blog is “thanks, but I really am not a fashionista”. Again, while an element of this blog is about the clothes, that is not what it is all about and I will stress that over and over again. Guest blogging on e31. is all about being yourself and allowing your personality to shine through your words and outfit. The part that gets me the most excited about e31. is getting the chance to read other women’s post and it is then when I become the biggest e31.fan! We aren’t looking for perfect models (nothing against models and we will happily feature you if you are one); but rather authentic and driven women. (Read more about it here). So if you think that is you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get the dialogue started! It can be intimidating at first, but once you get over the doubts about why you shouldn’t, it can really be a lot of fun. Plus, you never know who you may inspire or connect with along the way! (:
That’s it for today, but don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the very first #NewPostWednesdays post of 2015 and then next Monday to find out who #TodaysE31 is going to be!
Until next time, work hard and be nice to people!
Brina & the e31. team
