Something really, really cool happened this morning.
When I woke up, and rolled my still-sleepy bod over to the computer to check my email I was floored. Shocked. Speechless. Flabbergasted. My inbox was a sea of new messages! 600+ new email notifications! All from Tumblr!
I had lovely new followers (you!), crazy post-reblogging, hella ‘like’ action and TONS of questions in my Ask! I tried to figure out what I’d done wrong, or what button I’d accidentally pushed (or maybe I was still sleeping?). Mistake right? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I was thrilled, but it just seemed like a lot in only a few hours.
So I logged in and … found out that TUMBLR HAS FEATURED ME IN THEIR FITNESS SPOTLIGHT DIRECTORY!
Get out! Get OUT! AMAZING! Woot! Yay! Happy Dance! Excitement OVERLOAD!
Seriously, it’s awesome. And really means a lot. A lot. Plus, I’m the only Canadian, which makes my national pride tingle, even though I’m hoping that won’t last very long!
The spotlight feature alone is wicked, BUT I’m also alongside some seriously amazeballs fit-bloggers. These guys are fitness BEASTS! If you’re NOT already following them, do it now. Your body will love you for it, and you’ve probably seen me reblog their stuff from time to time. I am in awe that I’m in their company. Complete awe. They inspire me tons. (Wow. Am I gonna cry? Oh no… I think I might! Ahhhh, my mushy emotional side is showing!)
Whew… Moving on!:)
In addition to that big ball of awesomenews, I’ve been getting SO many questions from you & messages that have been making my heart melt. Your feedback is truly appreciated, fellow beautiful bad asses. I read every question, every message, every reply and LOVE them. But of course, things are getting busier and busier and this recent surge has meant a few things for me and my bloggy space…
One: I’m going to be redesigning in the next few weeks to make sure that the site is easy for you to navigate & find information on your favorite topics. I wasn’t sure where this blog was going at first, but I’ve got a clearer idea now and more importantly, I want to be able to share & connect with all of you in the simplest, easiest way possible. Work, yes. But it’s gonna be soooooo worth it!
Two: Fit Villains is expanding! I’m going to be getting some help from a few local trainer friends who I have mad lovin’ for! That means more body image posts, workouts, recipes, motivational blah blah, VIDEOS (yay!) & covering all the topics that we love to love! For me, more posts means more discussion, and I’m kinda addicted to hearing your thoughts & getting your points of view. You guys inspire me every single day and I love your fearlessness when replying. Keep it up homies!
Three: More questions means more answers! I’ve been posting my replies as quick as I can, but a sudden boost in my Ask means I’ll need a little more time replying. While I’d love to get one on one with each of you, I may group similar questions together & will be posting video replies to some of the more common & recurring questions I receive. I really try to make sure to give you guys the most recent information, using solid resources that encourage healthy living, shameless self-lovin’ & fitness development. So don’t be discouraged if you haven’t seen a reply right away! It means I’m taking the time to make sure to get you the best answer possible, k? Keep sending them in rock stars!
Lastly, a big old thanks to those who’ve been supporting this little project of mine over the last few months! I’ve learned tons and tons, will continue to make mistakes, but am hella grateful that I’ve had as much support as I do! It’s mind-blowing that I literally have THOUSANDS of you following along & being a part of my fit-life. I really do mean this from the bottom of my heart: you guys are AMAZING. Newbies: I can’t wait to get to know you too!
Ahhhhhhh, life in the spotlight. Crazy, but so far, I like it.
Wishing you ‘Bad Ass Beautiful Energy’ and all the self-loving you can handle,
Talk soon, right? Right. :)
