Woo Hoo, if you didn’t see it on my Facebook Page I just got my first online feature on Wayfair! Let me say that again, because it’s still hard to wrap my head around. I. Just. Got. My. First. Feature. On. Wayfair! 🙂
Of course I said YES! and very shortly after received a list of questions about our patio and how we came to choose our lounge furniture.
Being featured by a brand as large as Wayfair is a big deal in general; but, it’s a huge deal for someone who’s only been blogging a short while 🙂 I’ve had my webpage for a few years but I didn’t start seriously blogging (or really know what I was doing) until several months ago.
So ya, having Wayfair feature you this early in your blogging journey is mind blowing.
It is truly the best compliment I could have received!
I’ve loved Wayfair and been a customer for a long time. Most recently I purchased the industrial Gooseneck Lights we installed over the sink in our Kitchen Renovation. I knew exactly what I wanted and was ecstatic when I found them. The best part is they didn’t break the budget.
I was nervous so of course that allowed the negative talk to creep into my brain. “What if they didn’t like what I had to say?” “What if I wasn’t eloquent enough?” “What if I wasn’t clever enough or my little patio retreat wasn’t as cool as the others?”
“Wake up! Of course they loved your patio!” “They came to you didn’t they?” Even if they didn’t end up including my patio in their article it was still an honor to be considered.
I’m sure they appreciated the before and after pictures. I still love looking at what I started with.
Our tired and beat up wicker table got a makeover.
Now it’s a great landing spot for the cigar box and ashtray, or drinks and snacks.
My sun worn butterfly still looked good.
But it really pops after getting a bright coat of paint.
Even our old seagrass rug got a face lift.
Never painted a rug before? Then be sure to check out my video.
After I quieted the negative self-talk I sat down to respond to their questions. Of course I read and reread them many times over. Then I held my breath as I clicked “send.” And then I reread them again, just in case 🙂
My contact at Wayfair told me he’d let me know when it published. But it had been several weeks so I was wondering if I didn’t make the cut.
Wayfair Featured Me!
Yay ……I made the cut!
The day it published I was at a leadership summit at my church. I saw the email from my contact come through on my phone and I couldn’t stop smiling. I didn’t hear much of what the speaker said from that point on until the break 🙂 I couldn’t wait to get outside and read the full article.
They put together a great round up of patios if I do say so myself :). I mean, I must be an expert because they said so at the end of the article 😉
