A year ago when I started this blog, I made a list of the goals I had for it and for the social media part of it. The social media aspect is kind of the driving force behind a lot of the traffic I am able to get to my blog. It's definitely the part that makes me the most uncomfortable, vulnerable and feeling way out of my comfort zone, but it's also the part that has taught me a lot about myself this last year. The blog, the writing, this part of it, is what I absolutely love to do! This is the journal therapy for me. Anywho, I reviewed those goals today, a year(ish) later. I was surprised to see how many I was able to check off!
My greatest accomplishment so far happened this week! I finally became a LIKETOKNOW.it influencer! For many of you this means nothing, or maybe you don't know what this means. For me, it's a game changer. I have applied six times over the last year and persevered, which makes the accomplishment even sweeter! The free LIKETOKNOW.it app allows social media influencers to share their items along with shoppable links. For me, over the last year, my followers would see an outfit or something I shared and then they'd have to go searching for it on their own or I would have to find them the item and send them the link in a private message. Well not anymore! Now anyone can shop my looks on the app or right here on the blog under the Shop My Instagram tab at the top of the page, super easy!
The best part, as far as reaching goals for this blogging business goes, is that I will now receive a small commission off the links that I share when people make purchases from them. I have been sharing outfits, sales, clothing, accessories and much more for nothing, well for the fun of it, this whole time. And while it is VERY fun for me, and I LOVE when people love what I share, it makes it all even better to be compensated for it.
Being a part of the LIKETOKNOW.it app also allows for my content to be seen all over the world. People can search an item and if something that I have shared falls into that category, my page will pop up. This makes the world so small and so collaborative, which is very fun to be a part of. Isn't technology awesome?! While this new step in my adventure brings me more work and responsibility it is also bringing a great amount of opportunity and has me motivated to add more goals on my list for me to just cross off! Happy shopping!
