Are you tired of hearing about the trips I am going on? Well here is the thing. I have been blogging for almost 5 years, watching other bloggers get awesome opportunities to go interact with companies on their home turf and being insanely jealous. Partly because, hello? Free trip away from the kids. But also because I am a dork who loves finding out about the behind the scenes stuff about the companies I love. Also hello? No kids!
So, you all have to bear with me through one more trip. Because I am so stupid excited about this one.
I had to dig through the archives to figure out just when I fell in love with Toyota. I know at first I resisted my “swagger wagon”. But then, like anyone who has ever owned a Toyota Sienna, I fell madly and deeply in love with my car.
Last year, when Clever Girls took applications to join their Toyota Women’s Influencer Network, I jumped on the chance. And then didn’t get asked to join. Insert sad face here. But then, at the beginning of this year, they opened up applications again. I think I wrote a heart felt ode to my Sienna and lo and behold I was chosen!
Next week I get to head out to Los Angeles with several other bloggers and drive the newest Toyota’s. And, ok, so I get to stay on the beach and go out to nice dinners without the kids. But I am so excited to work with Toyota for a few months as well and find out all they are doing in innovation and community efforts (one of which I am excited to tell you about next week).
Let me know if you have any questions you want answered or what you want to hear about from Toyota. And make sure to follow Toyota on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as well as following the TWIN members using the #toyotawomen hashtag on Twitter.
