This whole post idea started from a conversation that I was having with a colleague when the topic of what we really enjoy doing came up. To be honest, I don’t broadcast all over the place that I have a blog or send out requests to all of my friends to follow along (there’s nothing wrong with anyone who does that), but for some reason I’ve always kept it kind of private. After I disclosed that what I really enjoy doing is taking pictures and blogging, I got this blank stare of a look. They responded by saying, oh, so you just take a bunch of pictures, get free things, and post them for everyone to see. Well, I guess yes, but also a big old no. That’s when I realized that a lot of people who aren’t familiar with the blogging/influencer world really might not have a clue about what actually goes into it. And that’s ok, because you see, I was naive when I first made the decision to start blogging and had a similar mindset.
Purchasing products through their affiliate links. When I have a blogger friend that links something I love and I know I want to purchase it, I make a point to go back and shop through their affiliate link. It costs me nothing on my end other than remembering to go back and click on it, and by doing so, I feel better knowing I might have just helped them earn a few extra dollars.
To everyone who takes time out of your day to visit this little space of mine, I cannot thank you enough! This whole experience has been more than I could have ever thought of and it doesn’t come without your support. In a world where it is so easy to focus on the negative or only being concerned about ourselves, I would encourage all of us to be an example of kindness and support to one another.
