Blog Angel Reveal

Hola. ¿Cómo estás? Voy gran! Estoy sentado aquí beber una margarita en la piscina. Alright, so I’m not the best at Spanish and what I hope I just said was that I’m great and I’m just sitting here drinking a margarita by the pool. D and I are in Cabo San Lucas for a little R & R before the craziness of harvest begins later this month and all throughout October and early November.

As I mentioned in an earlier post {you can read that here}, I have been participating in a project called Blog Angel put on by Rosie at  Crafbotic. The idea behind it is that you are paired up with another blogger and for one month, you {anonymously} support them in any way you possibly can. Whether it be comment on their post regularly, tweet about them, or secretly help them out in some way, you are showing them lots of love for one whole month. Well, today we get to reveal who our new blogger friends is! I’d like for you to meet Brighton  who blogs at Simple Brighton.

First and foremost, I’ve said this before but one of my favorite things about blogging are the people you meet along the way and the connections you make with them. You can find so many like-minded people out there and also find those blog where you learn something new every time you open up to their page. Taking part in Blog Angel’s has giving us the opportunity to meet one more person that possibly you would never have met to begin with.

Over the past month I did my best, for the time I had {it’s been a busy month}, and tried to support Brighton through regular commenting on her blog and giving her lots of social media support. I will admit, it was, at times, difficult to give her tons of support and I started to feel a little guilty about that. Then I realized that this is about doing the best you can and not being the best. Any support is better then none, right?

Simple Brighton is a newer blogger, she only started writing in May, so it was easy to go back and browse all of her post. I laughed out loud when I read the post TV Soundtrack to My Childhood because I watched every single one of those shows as well {actually re-watching some of them now on Netflix!}. It was nostalgic to say the least.

Blog Angels

If you’ve checked out the blog Craftbotic then you know all about Blog Angels. If not, you can read more about it here but the main idea is that you are giving a blog to be a Blog Angel too and anonymously you give them lots of love :) Really, it’s just another way to make a new friend.

Summer 2012

Today marks the halfway point. The day we share a little bit about our experience thus far. Rosie, the gal behind Craftbotic gave us some good questions to think about and I thought I’d share them and answer them Q and A style.

1. How have you found the experience of helping out a fellow blogger?
I have always loved giving other blogs love. I think showing support and encouragement within the blogging community is very important and not too mention, it’s always fun to meet new friends in all avenues in life.

2. Do you feel like you are making a difference?

To be completely honest, I’m not sure. I do my best to support the blogger I was paired up with but you never know if it is enough. Not too mention, sometimes life gets a little hectic and you can’t always sit back and catch up on all the blogs you love. I try to give said blogger some love as often as possible in someway but I know I haven’t been able to do it as much as I’d like to.

3. How easy/difficult, fun/horrendous is it in reality?

I think this has been a fun experience thus far and I can’t imagine it changing :) Why wouldn’t you want to share the love and get to know someone else through the words, pictures, or projects on their blog? It’s as fun for me as it is hopefully for them to read my comments.

4. What have you learned from taking part in Blog Angels so far?

Hmm, good question. I’ve learned that I have a hard time with commitments. Lol during the summer. We are leaving tomorrow for four days and then again next week for two, then the that weekend for three and again the following week for Mexico for a week so, as you can see, I’ve been a little short on time. I’d say my biggest lesson is to just do the best you can and hope that is good enough.
