My Dear Readers:
About a month ago, something funny happened. Several colleagues were standing around, one of whom happens to be a close friend of mine. One of the other ladies was scrolling on her BlackBerry and suddenly exclaimed, "Look what the JGIWC just wrote!" My friend's ears perked up. She couldn't believe what she was hearing.
"What did you just say?" she inquired.
"JGIWC! I love her blog. I read it all the time."
Well, my friend just about lost her marbles. She explained who I was and hilarity sure did ensue! What a small world. There she was, standing with people she knows well. People who, at the time, had never met me, had no idea who I was in real life, and they were JGIWC fans. We had dinner that night and she couldn't wait to tell me about it.
The moral of the story is: you never know who is reading. I am so pleasantly surprised by the reader response. Every day I learn that my audience is a little bit bigger - and a little bit broader - than I ever imagined, and I couldn't be happier.
With that said, I'm gearing up to compile a list of my favorite preppy picks - from boys to belts, from clubs to cableknits, from patterns to polos and from shades to shops. Have a preppy brand that you're looking to get off the ground? Want exposure for your company? Email me at email@example.com! This is the perfect place for press. I won't even charge you, though gifts are accepted and appreciated... :)
Looking forward to hearing from you :)
