Last year I came back from a trip to Mt. Hood and realized that I should make my own site, my own blog that features a girl who rides mountains on a snowboard. Not your typical girly girl…but a girl who cares and knows what boards she rides, waxes her own boards and loves to write about snowboarding. What came of it was this blog, now a year later it’s still just a blog but I have loyal readers, awesome companies who support it and had made some great friends to talk to because of it.
In the last year I have made nothing off this site. I chose not to advertise (quite honestly, google ads look like shit) and I figured to gain respect I would need to earn it…without making money from it until I have respect. I have received some perks along the way, free stuff to try out or wear for the season which I’m always honest about what is given to me. And while I have made nothing in terms of monetary value, I have gained so much and invested so much of me in this site…which is amazing, an accomplishment to write about snowboarding year round, often daily.
A big thanks to my readers…Thanks to you for helping me along this journey and keeping me writing, keeping me inspired to write about being an average rider. Over the past year I’ve helped pick out gear numerous times for people, answering questions about upcoming products as best as I could and I try my best to reply to every question that comes my way.
So Happy Anniversary to The World of Snowboarding through Fembot Eyes and keep tuned…snowboarding Hood comes in 2 days!
