Hey Busstas! Exciting stuff happening on the kellygolightly front. Cosmogirl’s site has a place where people who have started their own businesses can write about it and submit it to them. So I did in hopes of spreading the word and getting more people to know about us. Let’s hope they read it!
Also, as many of you know, we’re on Bust’s Girl Wide Web. Here you can rank sites from 1-10 and kellygolightly is often among the top-rated. Uh huh, uh huh! Of course, it takes people ranking us a 10 to stay there, so if you would show your support and unyielding dedication by clicking here and giving us a 10, good things will come to you. I guarantee it! And no, that’s not a bribe. Well, not exactly. And I’d like to give a huge thanks to everyone who’s reading the site and checking us out. For those interested, this is what I submitted to Cosmogirl!:
There are so many reasons I ended up finally taking the leap and started my own business. First and foremost, I’m a writer and artist, as are many of my friends, and recognized the difficulty for expressing my thoughts in a public forum. After all, it’s no easy feat getting your work published or getting the art world to recognize your utter genius. Since many of my friends were struggling with the same thing, and getting discouraged and starting to consider abandoning their dreams despite their awesome talent, I decided to finally take action and create my own site: kellygolightly.com — The site for all things twentysomething until we turn 30.
The goal is to publish funny and interesting articles, stories and artwork in a fun, honest and welcoming forum. kellygolightly is all about not letting that feeling of ‘what am I gonna do with my life’ get you down. Instead, it aims to nurture that, to encourage you to keep striving for whatever your goals may be. We’re trying to accentuate the positive and scream in the face of negativity. The aim of the site is to be a place for guys and girls to find commonality, though many guys have commented on the feminine leanings of the site. I can’t help it — I’m a girl!
In that vein, one of our most popular features is The DailyBuss. It’s like DailyCandy but for the budget-conscious set. We email out one totally cute and fab fashion find, that also happens to be affordable, to our subscribers every day. We love all the great fashion spreads in magazines but we want stuff that won’t send our credit ratings to their deathbeds, either.
We also have message boards so our visitors can interact and comment on articles, The DailyBuss and the Busstique art gallery. We have a very sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek advice column, and monthly ‘Horoscopes With a Twist for Minds That Are Twisted.’
We’re obsessed with all things pop culture, revel in gossip and weird news stories and love the feeling of being young with a world full of opportunities awaiting us. We’re Busstas, and we’re here to make a difference.
Anyway, I think other Cosmogirl!s would love to know about kellygolightly, as we tend to have a lot in common. Thanks for the opportunity to share — just one more reason to love Cosmogirl!
