May marks the one year anniversary since I started my “I Love Birkenstocks” blog.
In the past year my love for Birkenstocks has grown and I have been able to connect with other Birkenstock wearers on many different social media platforms.
While I do enjoy talking Birks with other enthusiasts, I do not enjoy the unsolicited emails, photos, comments and messages from people with foot fetishes. That is not what this blog is about. My blog is about all things that I love about the Birkenstock Brand.
While I appreciate social media making it easy for me to block people with fetishes from my account, I do not like there is no firewall to prevent it from happening in the first place. I am not getting paid to blog and I do not have to put up with offensive and degrading remarks from social media trolls.
I blog because I want to connect with other good people who like Birkenstocks. Not because I am fishing for foot compliments.
I have been using Instagram and Facebook to promote my blog. But, I have been getting so much unwanted communication from non Birkenstock wearers with foot fetishes, that I have decided to take a social media break. I have temporarily disabled my Instagram Account and am considering doing the same for Facebook.
I plan to allow Google searches to bring the correct demographic to my page. Google has been doing an incredible job thus far.
My blog will remain active. If you would like to get notifications about new blog posts then I recommend you sign up for my newsletter.
