The transition into fall is one of my favorite times of year - especially here in New England, where the leaves are changing, the weather gets just a touch cooler, and you can feel fall in the air. I always feel re-energized and re-inspired with each new season, and this one is no different. We've decided that YBC® is ready to do something new, so we are starting a podcast!
To celebrate, the YBC® team put together this fabulous fitness and fall finds giveaway, and I seriously love every single find our team picked. I am positive you're going to love this giveaway as much as I do. Each product hails from a small business we're loving and that makes my heart happy, as you all know how much I love supporting small business!
As far as the podcast, we are just in the beginning stages right now, and we'd love to hear from you as we get to work on the logistics. I'm visualizing the podcast as an extension of the blog. That is, topics would range from audio guided meditations and yoga practices to interviews to blog tips to travel diaries to just regular chit chat.
To enter to win this giveaway, we'd love to hear from you. If you're a podcast listener, what do you look for in a good podcast? What length do you prefer your podcasts? Do you prefer interviews? Is there anyone in particular we should invite as a guest? Any special topics or episodes you'd like to request? If you've created your own podcast in the past, are there any things you wish you'd known before you started, or any tips you have to share? If you don't listen to podcasts, why not?
We are all ears! Let us know in the comments below and then record that you've left a blog comment. We'll choose a winner on October 18th. This giveaway is open to those within the US, just due to legal reasons. If you have an email you use for promotional correspondence, please feel free to use that email address, because by entering to win, you agree to share your email info with the sponsors, who may be in touch in the future with newsletters and promotions. Thanks for shopping small and for supporting the companies that support YBC®! Good luck!
