Three years ago around this exact time I started a little fashion blog known as Reality Chic out of an attempt to figure out what I was passionate about. Fast forward a rough year later after not being able to find a job and two more years of one of the worst recessions our country has ever seen, and I decided to create my own by starting a company called Canopi.me.
I discovered that readers didn’t know where to search when it came to blog content. In other words there was no “library for bloggers”. Not to mention there were all these bloggers like myself who had troubles figuring out how to get someone other than their mom and Facebook friends to read their site. So that’s when we came up with the concept that was formerly known as Righting Style and is now known as Canopi.me
While I was creating a job for myself, not to mention my husband and co-founder who decided to quit his Fortune 500 position to come onboard, we decided to develop one place where people could go to find, follow, & read blogs. Canopi.me, is an online community of bloggers and readers across a variety of interests and categories. Readers can find new bloggers and follow their favorites, all in one place. Bloggers can get a jump start, hone their craft, and gain recognition. Sound like the best of both worlds? It is!
When I’ve been slacking on recent posts via Reality Chic you can at least know it’s all been in good faith to bring you something better than I’d ever be able to create alone. And now I can finally invite all of you into what’s been keeping me mum for the past year along with encouraging you to Sign Up on Canopi.me’s beta site. While we’re officially live, we’re still in the middle of fixing and adding things to our site. Feel free to send us any feedback you may have. Can’t wait to see you under the Canopi…
