Casey Leigh at The Wiegand's and Ashley with The Shine Project.
Today, the both of them started a new series called Bloggers in Real Life. They each will feature the same blogger where on Casey's blog the featured blogger will share a personal story while on Ashley's blog they will share advice whether it be about fashion, parenting, or business related. Here is a little summary they both posted today....
Creating, sharing, and inspiring connects us all together. Every day we are drawn to blogs that make us feel something, and we take a little piece of it with us. Behind every one of our favorite blogs, there's a person. A person with real emotions, fears, goals, and weird quirks that we never really get to experience first hand. We've brought together your favorite bloggers to give you a more intimate take on their lives, so you can catch the little details that make them who they are. Every Wednesday, we'll be capturing the lives of the people behind your daily reads in a way that you wont experience anywhere else.
Today, Ashley shared her personal story on Casey's blog. I really enjoyed it and thought I would share something she said...
"As I have grown up, I vowed to never, ever, walk away from something I've worked hard for again. In our lives, things are never perfect. They aren't supposed to be. We spend time doing things we love, and other things that we have to in order to get by. If we gave up at the first sign of discouragement, we would never amount to anything.
Almost every great leader that I can think of has had to withstand trial, after trial, after trial.
But that's what makes them so great. Their ability to conquer gives them strength. And in turn, they are able to give it to those that they lead.Don't give up. Don't settle for second. And when it seems you are in your final inning, with more pressure that you could ever imagine, allow yourself to Shine." Click Here to read the entire story
Then you can read part 2 on Ashley's blog. She gave advice on "How to be noticed in the blogging world". http://www.ashlemieux.blogspot.com/
I really enjoyed both of these posts today because her personal story was extremely inspiring while her advice was very helpful. My goal is to become a better blogger and have a bigger audience. I know I have a long way to go!!!
