My time holding The Baton

Happy Monday everyone!

As you all know I held The Blog Baton on Friday and was so excited to do so! I signed up for the exchange within a week of Mason announcing it and yet I was given a date three months later! The response both from interested participants and the interaction between bloggers has been really cool to watch.

I was actually a little nervous to hold the baton. What if no one liked my photos? What is no one responded? What if I didn’t gain a single hit on my blog or followers on my Instagram? I had nothing to worry about! So many of my fellow bloggers, friends, and family commented and liked the pictures showing me that I was not posting to crickets. I also had double the amount of views of my blog and gained 15 new Instagram followers. Overall, this was so worth doing and I’m excited to get to know my new friends better!

Here are the photo I posted in case you missed it:

I was sooo excited to upload one of the incredible sunrises that I see every morning on my walk to work but of course it was sleeting on the day I was scheduled to hold the baton.

I wanted to share a photo of my view at work!

My favorite part of holding the baton was being able to interact with other bloggers. I was heading out to dinner and drinks with some friends and couldn’t make a decision on an outfit. I posted this and asked the ladies to tell me what they thought.

They chose and I got so many compliments on my outfit ๐Ÿ™‚

I wrapped up the night with this evening shot (the white light near the top is M&T Bank Stadium) and thanked everyone for hanging out with me!

Tomorrow I’m going to do a week recap of my 12×30 Challenge photos!
