In this blog post, I’m seeing red in Loft plus size. I’m sharing why our engaged community is so important. Why it matters how we as plus size women feel and speak our minds if we want to see change.
I want to first say I’m overwhelmed by the response I received on the blog post on TIPS FOR PLUS SIZE ONLINE DATING. I got some really good feedback. One response or comment that I want to mention is “This is such a cute picture! Why do you think dating plus size is different from a straight size person dating?”
When I write a blog post I do them for different reasons. I want to provide information/education on a subject or a topic. I want to bring brand or event awareness, Some posts are done in response to questions/ or request from blog readers. S/N I love those posts the most because that means my people are engaged. I responded to her comment (I respond to all comments on the blog, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter) with this “thank you ☺️. I believe as [a] plus [size] women social media treats us different than our straight size counterparts.”
Being a plus size woman my life is not like my counterparts that are straight-size.
The majority of my blog readers are plus women trying to navigate their way through life just like I am. Working a 9 to 5 and looking for a date to the movies. I’ve chatted with some readers about online dating and said I was going to do it. The post was me saying I’m on an app too you’re not alone in this. The tips within that post were meant to be helpful to plus size women. We have all watched enough episodes of Catfish to know people don’t react well when the person they thought they were getting from online isn’t the people they got in real life. It’s important to show the real you. Also, it was a reminder that there are some people on dating site solely to scam so be careful.
I’ve been on the app a little while before I created the post. In real-time, I updated my readers on my social channels my current status as it relates to online dating. The app I’m using caught wind of my social post and reached out. They asked me what were some of my issues with the app. I’m currently compiling a list so leave a comment what are some improvements or changes you’d like to see on dating apps.
I hope this post provides encouragement and style inspiration which we all are looking for, insight on content selection, as well as confirmation on why this community matters. Also In all my posts, I ask for comments. This allows me to provide feedback to brands that are looking to partner with TFGOF. Things don’t change overnight but I know brands are watching and listening.
Lastly! This dress is on sale with code WANT – Happy shopping.
