Storytime: Blog Release Mixer
THE DAY IS HERE
The time has come, I have everything in order and I am ready to launch my blog, Kinky Kurly Chic. But wait, am I really ready? Originally I thought it would be a simple process to set up and launch this event. First establish a date, next set up a time and then most importantly, find the right venue to launch my baby.
In my corporate business mindset, I outlined the agenda for my presentation and I made sure time was allotted for people to mingle once the presentation was done. Everything just needed to stick to the script.
WHO ALL IS COMING?
Well I hadn’t factored in that many people planned trips or vacations to enjoy time with their loved ones. Also this was the time of graduations and celebrations. I didn’t really consider that when I was planning my launch. I just wanted to kick start my blog journey and get the ball rolling. There is never a perfect time to step out of your comfort zone and embark on something new. So like Nike I thought ‘Just Do It’!
As a result of my starting time of 4:00pm no one had arrived. It became clear that I would be starting much later. Subsequently It was more like 5:45pm when a couple of friends began to arrive. I was privy to the fact that day, that some of my guests were at previous planned engagements such as graduations.
It was really difficult for my guests to determine when a graduation or the celebration for their loved ones would be over, and if they would be able to attend my event. However, I was prepared to present my blog with whomever was able to make it. Fortunately for me I did have friends to show up so I was happy. This particular venue is a very popular place and is normally to capacity most nights. Luckily there was a light crowd present that day which was excellent, since the venue is a small space and I wanted my guests to be comfortable moving around.
TIME TO PRESENT
I ended up presenting twice for the first crew of people and then the second influx of individuals. I was ecstatic and relieved when that part was over. A gentleman who came to my event with a friend of mine, had wanted to give me money because he was so impressed with my blog. I thought WOW! I had to make it clear though that I was not selling anything at this point but simply wanted to let people know that this blog is live and available for people to use.

Everyone who came had a great time from talking about hair to kids to work and current events. In my eyes it was a success! I created a video to highlight the event and received positive responses and inquiries as to when the next event will be! Well I guess I better get ready.
