#45 Send another blogger some love.

I love love love getting emails and comments from readers.

I am absolutely blown away every time someone reaches out to let me know they enjoy reading my blog each day. Furthermore, when someone writes to let me know that it’s actually inspiring them to make changes in their own life –  I can’t even wrap my head around how cool that is.

I decided today that I wanted to reach out to a blogger who has had a huge impact on my life, Mark Manson. You’ve probably seen his articles floating around (he’s a pretty big deal), but if you haven’t, I highly recommend reading anything and everything he has ever written.

In his own words, he writes “personal development advice that doesn’t suck.” I love his unique (and hilarious) writing style and uncanny ability to connect dots I never knew co-existed. He also manages to consistently come across as a no-nonsense asshole in his posts, without ever being abrasive.

I know he gets bombarded with emails and most likely never gets around to answering any, but that’s okay. I sent him a quick note to let him know what an impact he’s had on my life and my own personal development.

If you want to check out his blog, here are a few of my all-time favourite posts (I’ve been known to obnoxiously quote parts to friends frequently) to get you started:

P.S. HE WROTE BACK! HE WROTE BACK! HE WROTE BACK! AHHHHH! He said, “Thanks :)” I think I may have just peed my pants a little bit.

When was the last time you sent another blogger some love?



  1. You blog is a refreshing reminder to things we already know. As I read it I think ‘I can so do that’.
    I really like that your posts are in random order.
    I look forward to the next day’s post!!

    • Thanks, Hawberry. Really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment. 🙂

  2. I’m pretty new to blogging, but I’ve already figured out that you can’t get if you don’t give. Today I will be a kinder person. Thank you.

    • To be honest, now that I’m in the rhythm of doing it each day, it’s not as hard as I thought it would be. It almost makes it easier to do it every single day, as weird as that sounds!

      Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  3. Comments are a great way to connect with bloggers. I love to make comments–your blog, well, I am lazy. I need to open up a whole different window to comment on your fun ideas! So, I don’t very often. Emails are also great. I adore communicating with others. Words are fun to share!

    • Definitely. I love connecting with people from all across the world. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave your comment. 🙂

  4. Haha. I have just sent you an email via your contact form. And now I have seen this 🙂
