It’s the Gray Asparagus’s Two Year Anniversary!
It’s been TWO YEARS?
I cannot believe that TWO YEARS have passed since launching The Gray Asparagus.
Let’s back up…
I started keeping a diary at the age of seven. It held the basic secrets of a seven-year old… who I thought was cute and who my current best friend was. One day I found out that my brother had read my entire diary! In a panic, I took out an eraser and erased the contents… I erased all the words I had written (in pencil, of course) as if this too could erase the words from my brother’s memory. It didn’t, but life went on.
Blogging has always intrigued me and, quite frankly, scared me. Just like my journal being read, blogging reveals your otherwise private thoughts and feelings. No matter what subject, I am letting others read my thoughts and ultimately I am opening myself up to criticism from people other than my brother. That in itself can be scary.
But in doing so you also make yourself available to meet wonderful people… and that can be pretty amazing.
When I wrote the first post in February of 2015, I didn’t have a plan for The Gray Asparagus. I entered the blogging world quite blindly. I typed my thoughts out of frustration and didn’t even know if I would allow anyone to read them. I asked about 3 friends to review a few articles before making my decision and they all gave a resounding “Do it!”
The Gray Asparagus has become so much more to me now.
It is my online journal. I write about what I am going through…
Whether I am trying to achieve a personal goal or sometimes I just unload all my current thoughts about a new strategy I want to try with online selling.
I never know if anyone will feel the same.
But if type it all out- it challenges me to come up with a solution- it helps me work out my situation and see that there is a way it can work out. If someone says “Me too!” it makes it all worthwhile. Logging in and writing new posts and reading your comments is one of my favorite parts of the day.
I hope the Gray Asparagus is a place where people who may be looking for a different spin on the basics, ones who constantly question “why”, and the sellers who are frustrated and just need a fresh view on their situation, can all come and find that.
In the Past Two Years…
Over the past 2 years we have discussed a lot of subjects.
What it means to be a Crazy Cat Lady.
We have debated ad nauseam different sharing tactics.
And went through big changes – like the addition of men’s and kids and so many other new features on Poshmark.
Everyone wants to know more about the Suggested User Program.
Of course we all want to be a SUCCESS…
But what’s My Absolute Favorite Part?
My favorite part about the past 2 years has been YOU.
I read every question and every comment (here and on Poshmark) and believe me when I say that I am so very grateful for every like and every share.
I am so very thankful that there is a really awesome group of readers who are supportive and quick to share their experiences too.
Oh, and speaking of Hosting Poshmark Parties…
I wish I could say that Poshmark was celebrating my blog anniversary too… but it’s PURELY coincidence that…
I am HOSTING A POSHMARK PARTY on FEBRUARY 6th!
(7pm PST/10pm EST)
To help me Celebrate Two Year of the Gray Asparagus, I ask that you:
- Head over to Instagram to the Anniversary Party post
- Leave me your closet name- I want to check out your closet!
- Feel free to follow and tag a PFF or 3
(if you are not on Instagram, no problem. You can comment with your closet name below and subscribe for updates!)
I want to check out all of your closets for potential Host Picks!
While I can’t guarantee a Host Pick and this isn’t a contest (all closets must be compliant Posh rules and must be a listing that fits the theme and deemed HP worthy!) I want to have all your closet names easily accessible to start the search in a couple of weeks.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for coming along on this ride with me for the past 2 years!
