The Girl Behind the Blog Prompt: Your Non-Blogging Passion

Have you ever been the new girl? 
You show up to a room full of people who already know each other and let out an awkward "hello."
Not always so fun. But what helps in situations like these is the people who take you in. That girl who invites you to sit with her, who introduces you to her friends, and who makes you feel like you belong.

Ashely, aka 5ohwifey, has been that girl for many new bloggers, myself included. 
I'm pretty sure that I'm standing and Ashley is sitting. They don't call me pint-sized for nothing!

In both online life and "real" life, Ashley is GENUINE, inclusive, and is seriously gifted at helping people connect with one another. I know of many true friendships that have formed through Ashley's Girl Behind the Blog link-up. And at the Influence Conference last year, Ashley was the girl starting conversations, looking out for women who needed a friend, and making everybody feel like we'd know each other for years. (She's also a rare combo of super sassy + incredibly wise, which I love.)

I am stinkin' excited to share with you that I'll be co-hosting this month's Girl Behind the Blog link-up with Ashley! We want to hear about your passions outside of the blogging world. Maybe you love painting, could spend hours talking about music, or have a dream to work with children in Africa. Whatever it is, we'd love to know what you dream about, you know, other than blogging ;)

So, Thursday, April 18, 2013, we invite YOU to get all tell us where your passions lie outside of the blogosphere. And maybe make a few new friends. All you have to do is follow both of our blogs, post a button anywhere on your blog, and post a short vlog answering the following questions. You'll only have to link up on one of the host's blogs because our links will be interlinked. We really hope you join us. You can grab a button below to put up on your blog. Spread the word and lets get to know each other a little better! Here are the deets... feel free to make your video your own but please try to stick to these prompts and the time limit. 

The Girl Behind The Blog- Your Non-Blogging Passion 
Time limit: Vlogs should be 2-3 minutes long 
What topic could get you talking for hours, if someone asked you to share? (Fashion, parenthood, history, etc.)
What are your hobbies and passions that you might not talk about often on your blog?
Is there a reason you shy away from sharing this passion on your blog?

  1. Loving your blog! I'm visiting from 5ohwifey blog and am a new follower on bloglovin! I just basically went through all of your blog posts, and you are so cute and baby Nicholas is adorable! Looking forward to your next post!


  2. I'm thinking that I might do my first ever v-log and join in- I like this topic :) Do you just film it on your laptop and upload the video via blogger? Or do you upload it to youtube?

    1. You can do either! I personally always upload to youtube... I hope you join us!

  3. YES! You have no idea how excited I am for this :). Earlier in the afternoon I actually sat down and attempted to film a vlog but had no direction or prompt. I secretly wished for TGBTG, but didn't know when it would be next! Having you as the co-host with this particular topic is the best news today! :)

  4. Yaaaay! So excited that you're hosting :)

  5. This is super exciting :) I've always (well, always since I started my blog, haha!) wanted to try this. Definitely gonna do this!

  6. You are literally the sweetest ever

  7. I might join for the first time! Little nervous about vlogging though... eek!

  8. So true. Ashley had introduced me to so many friends through this linkup. Can't wait to join again! I'll be in Mexico so I think I'll finally record from there! yay!

  9. Even though I'm taking time off of writing, I'm definitley planning on doing this! This will be my first vlog ever! I can't wait to get to know what other blogger's non-blogging passions are.

  10. I have soooo been slipping on doing this link-up, but I hope to get back to it this week. No idea what I'm going to talk about though, lol.



Every comment means a lot to me, so feel free to say hello. Thank you!
