I was invited to take part in being a secret Blog Angel for the month of June by Kaitlyn at Dreamy Meadow and Rosie at Craftbotic.
Today is the halfway point and these are some things I wanted to share about my experience. This is actually something that comes easy for me to do so I was excited to jump at the chance to do this.
What have you learned about yourself from helping another blogger?
I learned that I need to make it a point to be creative because I may get someone who is totally different than me which could be a challenge but there is always a way. Which also taught me that I need to start doing other things so I can have more in common with others.
What has been the most fun thing about being a Blog Angel? What has been the most frustrating?
The most fun is knowing that I'm on a mission to encourage her and whatever I do even though little, could brighten her day. The most frustrating is she's different therefore I have no clue how to help. Not in a bad way, it's just not as easy as I thought. I can't say why or she'll know who I am!! :)
Has being a Blog Angel changed your approach to blogging? How?
Not really because I've been doing the things suggested all along to other bloggers because it's what I do. It's in my nature to want to help others. I am however more aware of those around me and try to reach out more with every page I visit rather than just skip over and leave the page so quickly. I know we as bloggers work hard at creating posts no matter what the subject and it's very encouraging to have others leave encouraging comments and spread the word.
How have you made time to help someone else out?
I have their blog on my bookmark bar and visit their social media links daily. I try to comment on all their posts which is so obvious to me because it was someone I have never met / read before so I think they'll know I'm their angel by me showing up out of the blue on June 1st and stalking every social media link they have and commenting on all their posts. =)
Have you been trying to work out who is helping you or are you more concerned with helping others?
Yes, I have but I haven't had anyone stand out, things have been pretty show in the comments and emails so I have NO CLUE who my angel is. I'm excited to find out though!! Yes I'm concerned with helping others. I read though the assignment post and the suggestions posts regularly to make sure there isn't anyway else I can help. I feel like I may go through this experience without making a difference and I don't want that to happen.
How does being a Blog Angel affect your experience of blog land?
It helps me to know we can all work together and build each other up. By having 75 bloggers participating in this first round in short notice shows how many people are willing to help and be supporters.
Find out more info here. There will be another round coming up in August!
