Being a Blog Angel


Earlier this month, I signed up to be a blog angel.  I wanted to get to know other bloggers and I thought this would be a great way to do that.  Being able to stalk them and actually have a reason seemed like a great plan.  

We are now a little more then half way through the Blog Angel time and its proved to be an interesting ride.

1) What have you learnt about yourself from helping another blogger?
I have lots to learn about blogging :)  The person I have has many many more followers and posts under her belt.  I feel a tad inadequate to be supporting her.  

2) What has been the most fun thing about being a Blog Angel? What has been the most frustrating?
Fun: Getting feedback from the person I am supporting (in the form of gratitude)
Frustrating:  Not knowing really how to support them.  I am a little clueless on how to give them what they might need.

3) Has being a Blog Angel changed your approach to blogging? How?
Its helped me feel a little more comfortable in encouraging someone. 

4) How have you made time to help someone else out?
I haven't done as much as i would have liked.  My person hasn't posted much so I've had to be a little creative in how I encourage her.  (Not her fault, she's just a busy gal)

5) Have you been trying to work out who is helping you or are you more concerned with helping others?
Yes, I think i read too much into random tweets or posts but I, on some level, have tried to figure it out.

6) How does being a Blog Angel affect your experience of blog land?
Its helped me be more encouraging and outgoing in how i interact with other bloggers. Something in me often is shy in commenting or tweeting about others.  I think its more of a shyness (that is in my real life too) and a worry that i will weird people out.  This has helped me move beyond that.

Overall, its been a fun experience.  I wish I knew how else to support my person, but hopefully I can find more ways in the next week or two!


  1. I am glad you are having fun with this! It brings me joy to know that you have come out of your shell a little to encourage others in Blog Land! I hope you keep it up too because it's a great way to network and bring more followers to you as well. Helping out others via comments and social media are amazing ways of getting yourself out there. I'm not sure what you have all done for you angel so far (since we don't want to ruin the surprise) but some ideas to do more for her would be sponsoring, social media love, make her something and email it to her saying you really like her blog and thought you'd create something fun to show you cared, etc. We hope to see you in round 2 in August as well! Thank you for participating! :) xo

  2. That was my thinking too... 'Who's this new person tweeting me? Blog Angel?' haha! It's been fun right!?

  3. Well, I wouldn't feel too intimidated. Lots of big bloggers are often contacted for help, advice or something...but don't always get the interest in them. So every comment you make or shout out is appreciated. You are awesome. Thank you for taking part.
