I'm making my Monday deadline by about 6 minutes. This afternoon I went live as the 12th and newest member of life-casting platform, Non-Society! Those of you who have kept up with K&T know that I've been a long time follower on Non-Society, and more specifically Julia Allison's career. For those who are unfamiliar with Non-Society, it is a life-casting platform made up of branded personalities that each have a specific niche. My life-cast will deal a lot with social media, but it is also going to follow my day to day life. It is just like reality tv, just on the internet!
I've had a lot of people ask me why I choose to join Non-Society since I have my own blog. I will tell you what I told Julia Allison, I felt that K&T was getting stale. Plain and simple. I had made such a point to keep all content "on brand". I don't talk much about my job, social media, or my relationships - really the things that make up my life. I love a great H&M dress and #manicuremondays as much as the next girl, it just isn't the whole story. I gave some thought into turning K&T into a life-cast, but that felt like a bait and switch. My readers, You (wonderful and amazing YOU!), have come back every day and expect to see certain content. It just didn't seem fair to all the sudden start talking about digital strategy and my new obsession with debating the difference between age vs. life-stages. Joining Non-Society will allow me to do that.
So what does this mean for K&T? Will I continue to post? And if so, how often? What content will go where?
I'm still trying to work out some of these answers, but here is what I have so far. K&T isn't going any where. At this point it is so apart of who I am I couldn't even fathom getting rid of it. I will continue to post as much as I can. As I've mentioned countless times before, I am currently working with a site designer. Together, she and I have switched platforms 3 times now. Now that I am on Non-Society we have decided to build K&T2.0 on Tumblr. This will make reblogging between the two sites very fluid. In the beginning I'm sure I will be re-blogging more from my life-cast onto K&T versus the other way around. I think this is going to be a little bit of trail and error, and to be honest and I intend on things being shaky at the beginning. But I promise I will do my best.
And now... time for the mushy stuff. I just really wanted to say thank you. I started this blog in 2008 because I had something to say. I wasn't sure what at the time, but I knew it was something. Over the past two years, through this blog, I have found my voice and found my passion. Seeing readers come back day after day has been the most amazing support and motivation. Every opportunity I have received in the past year has been because of this site and because of YOU. I don't take that for-granted and I will do my best to stay faithful to You, my loyal readers, who have been reading since brown rice sushi and feathered purses. I hope that you will follow along with me on my Non-Society life-cast and support me in this new chapter of my life.
