Building a Community of 500+ followers!

Today I woke up to see that My Instruction Manual now has over 500 followers on WordPress, plus many more on Facebook and Twitter.

I wanted to thank YOU for being part of the My Instruction Manual community. I’m so grateful for this mighty band of positive people who are focused on being happy, healthy, organized, connected and inspired.

Thanks for joining me on this journey!

To mark this milestone, I want to share a few updates about the blog.

1. Beyond the Blog

My plans for My Instruction Manual go beyond the blog itself. I’m not ready to announce anything official yet, but stay tuned for news about books and a podcast I’m planning to launch in the fall.

In the meantime, there are other ways you can be part of the community. I recently launched a Facebook page and would love it if you liked the page here to access extra content. If you want to follow me on Twitter, you can find my profile here. I’ve also recently claimed my blog on Bloglovin and you can follow it by clicking here. Instagram and Pinterest are coming soon!

2. Awards

I’ve been nominated for a few different blog awards. The Star Blogger award is decided by reader votes, so I would appreciate it if you head on over to the How To Addict blog and cast a vote for My Instruction Manual. You can vote here.

The other award nominations involve me passing on the love to other blogs. Some bloggers don’t like to participate in these awards but if you do and want me to consider your blog, leave a comment below with a link to one of your best posts. Alternatively, you can contact me through email here. These awards I’m looking to pay forward are the Blogger Recognition Award, the Mystery Blogger Award and the Real Neat Blog Award.

3. Self Improvement Blogger Alliance

If you’re a blogger who writes about personal development / self-improvement, there’s another way we can connect. I’m bringing together a group of positive bloggers who write about these topics. I’m calling the group the Self Improvement Blogger Alliance, or SIBA. The idea is that we will support and learn from each other, collaborate on projects and promote each other when it makes sense. If you’d like more information, please send me a note by contacting me through email here.
