Guest Blog Post - Tumblr - Formspring- Pinterest-Purple

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

On Monday, I did a guest blog post for Rose over at Austin Sun Drops. I wrote a post on what to pack for a "warm" cruise vacation. Head over there and starting planning your next (or first) cruise today!

I now have a tumblr account. I am not a fan of tumblr for an actual blog, as I like the Blogger interface better, but I do like the quick almost "facebook newsfeed" aspect of tumblr. For example, if  I see a motivational look (like the one below from Daniella of Nany's Klozet) I can just post the picture, and same with quotes, etc. On  Blogger I like to do  about one post per day. That way the blog post is up for everyone to read at different times. If I posted every few minutes with something fashion related, things would surely be missed [enter stage right] TUMBLR!! It's great because I can update my fanpage, my personal facebook, and my twitter all at once as soon as I click create post! One stop updating to my fans and friends :-). Anyway enough rambling here is the link Follow me if you like, and let me know if you have tumblr so I can follow you!

I would love for you guys to ask me questions via my formspring account. I love answering them, and some of you may not have noticed that I coded the question box on my right side bar →. You can ask me questions there anytime, or go to this link to ask me

I have been a member of pinterest for many, many months now, but this weekend was my first time actually using it and creating boards. I would love to follow more people on there. So if you are on pinterest leave your link below in the comments!!

For the last 3 weeks, I've been featuring a different color on my fanpage based on votes of the followers of this page. This week purple won. I'm going to have redo the other colors because I came up with some more ideas on how to focus on purple. I'm also trying to make my fanpage more interactive. So if you have a picture of yourself wearing purple, recent or past, from just a ring, to a headband, to apparel, please post it on my facebook page! . I even changed the profile picture for the first time since I created the page!

And this crazy compilation of topics is the main reason I got a tumblr. I didn't want to create separate blog posts for each of these, because at the end of the day...the blog is still mostly an OOTD blog! :-p

  2. Right I only know how to do what the base has...but I see so many people have cool tumblr pages, but I have no idea how to work that thing, and that's exactly why I chose blogger! haha

  3. I agree with Danielle... I need tumblr for dummies!!!! I have one but have yet to post!!!! I may NOT even remember my past word!!! lol

    We're hosting a chatroom tomorrow at 8pm eastern and we'd love to see you there because you have such an amazing voice. Our last one was a HUGE success and we were able to meet tons of new people because everyone repped their blogs & twitter names for the final 30 minutes! Hope to see you there! You'll be sure to have a blast!! =]

  14. Hi dear Shasie!

    Thank you so much for trying! I know, there is a problem: you have to disable your Secure Browsing:) From your Account, go to Security Settings, then choose Security and then disable the Secure Browsing!!!! This is why you probably could not see the contestants!

    Thank you so much, you are very sweet:D
