Wow, the last few months have been a whirlwind of events, interviews, giveaways and just overall fun! Before I even start this post, a huge thank you is in order to each and every one of you who read my blog and continue to come back for more.
When I first launched my blog in July 2012 I had a clear strategic vision of where I wanted to go with it, what I wanted to write about and how I wanted to position myself in a sea of millions of bloggers. I knew my reasons for starting my blog and those still ring true today. Dealing with the adversity of the online world has had its challenges but at the end of the day, knowing who I am and what I stand for is all that counts! I’m a go-getter!
Blogging is something that continues to evolve and I love the constant change. I have gone through one major makeover, a few layout changes and now I’m showcasing my most recent re-branding, giving my blog a more professional look and feel. I’ve opened myself up to more diverse opportunities for more unique content, event coverage advertising and more.
In the next few months, even more amazing things will be on this lil blog of mine, including a few new contributors writing about fashion, food, cars, and life in general. I am super excited to partner with these folks and I can’t wait to introduce them and share their greatness with you too!
I have a few local companies and influential peeps lined up for my PegCityChat with Nat radio show in the next couple of months. I will also be working with local tourism to showcase the fabulousness of Winnipeg – super pumped about that for sure! Plus, after hanging out at the Junos this past weekend, I am ecstatic to be interviewing (maybe live on location at their next gig) with some ridiculously mind-blowing local talent like Panicland and Jupiter Storm (I might even sing a tune with Carlen)!
Oh yea and I’ll be launching something special at the end of this week too (teehee), just in time for my ultimate NYC getaway. You’ll just have to come back on April 4th to see what it is! It’s pretty cool and will have an awesome giveaway attached! 🙂 In the meantime check out my new Events page where you can find a variety of local, national and online events.
Authenticity has been a part of my mantra and in a world of “I’ll just take what I can get” type of people, I want to stand out as someone who is credible, someone who is real and I know I’ve been able to achieve that. I’ve been very fortunate to partake in some really great events, review some amazing products and even interview great people. If it’s something I actually, use, eat, watch, or attend, it’ll be talked about on my blog, in my words, on my terms. As I’ve stated numerous times before, what you see is what you get. Who I am offline is who I am online, no alternate persona, this is me!
A month or so ago I did something pretty wild and exciting – I auditioned for Entertainment Tonight Canada.
The audition experience really catapulted my already relentless drive into a higher gear, fueled by a few humbling and unsolicited comments by my family, friends, PR reps/agencies and other companies I’ve worked with.
All I can say is that I am blessed. I know that I am on the right track and you will see so much more of this from me folks, so get used to it! This is what I’m meant to be doing 🙂 Mom always said so!
I had to share with you the overwhelming positive experiences I’ve been having and will continue to have because I live my passion, I implore you to #LiveYOURPassion! Once again, thank you for your support and coming along with me for the ride!
