On Monday, something pretty cool happened: my Twitter following hit an arbitrary numerical milestone! Hooray! Can you believe 5,000 people saw what I had to say and thought, “I want more of that in my life”?
I created my Twitter account to promote this blog, and I created this blog to help people. At first, it was to help other therapists struggling to find kid-friendly telehealth interventions, but it has since expanded into mental health education for the general public. There is so much stigma around mental health, and there is so much misinformation in the media. I want to provide accurate, helpful information that you don’t need graduate training to understand. I want people to be able to advocate for themselves and make informed decisions about their own treatment.
Anyone can create a free blog and start posting things. Without readers, I’m just screaming into the void here. You all gave me feedback on what information is helpful, and you shared what I wrote so that more people actually saw that. For all of this, I am so grateful!
How do you express gratitude? By giving away free stuff! I’m going to use an app to randomly choose ten followers. Five will receive a printable copy of It’s About To Get Real Unprofessional, and five will get a personalized Cameo-style video of Armani telling them they are great. Armani will accept requests for custom messages, but he reserves the right to say things at his own discretion.
Since winners will be chosen randomly from my followers, everyone who follows me is automatically entered to win! If I notify you that you won, and that reminds you that you actually never want to hear from me again, I’ll pick new winners until there are 10.
I’m also going to give away one autographed and inscribed copy of Armani Doesn’t Feel Well. Because of shipping and stuff, you have to be in the United States to win this one. Please fill out the submission form below to enter, and I will again choose a winner at random. I will inform the winner via email so that you don’t have to give me your contact information unless you win.
I will select winners the weekend of October 9.
When I started this blog, it was a big day if 10 people wanted to hear what I had to say. A bit over a year later, here we are. Thank you so much!
