I’m filled with love, joy, and gratitude for you all (all 10k+ of you 💚). And if you’re wondering why I chose this picture it’s because finding this matcha step made me happy haha!————In earlier posts, I would write about follower milestones a lot. (“I’ve reached 1K, 4K, blah, blah). I cringe as I look back. Social media is funny as your page’s “success” is often judged on how many people you reach (e.g. followers, likes, etc), so at times it feels more like a popularity contest. Oy. Who knows…I suppose when I was starting I needed to see the progress of how my page was doing. But I don’t see it like that anymore (don’t get me wrong, I love you all) but after a certain point I just focused on writing about my experience & everyone’s support started flowing in. So why am I posting about this now?———🔹10k is waayyyy more than I would have ever imagined & I’m grateful. And really, its just a number. I’m more enthusiastic about our connection. If you’re following, something on my page resonates with you..whether its yoga, aerial, PA/medicine, coffee/tea, my jokes (jk I’m not funny). Regardless, I’m happy we’re connected in some way but I’m also in awe of YOU! your journey, which we may share some similarities in but is also very different. And I value that tremendously. You all.. friends…across the world share your stories & perspectives & help me grow as a person. thank you.🔹Since hitting this mark, I’ve gotten a slew of questions on advice on how to build followers. I really wish I had a set/standard answer. My advice is to be yourself, be genuine in what you share. And careful not to attach one’s happiness & success to an if/when statement…”I’ll be happy if I get more followers/likes, I’ll be happy when I hit x amount of followers.” Life is much more than social media…trust me!————I wish I had enough time to look through everyone’s page, so please tell me below what you or your page is all about! Would love to hear from you all 💚Plus you may just find a cool page/person to connect with! (Btw this was taken in SF for all you Matcha lovers).
