I’m officially back in Louisville for the next 48 hours before heading off on another trip, which means last night I came home, ordered some food, watched the last episode of OITNB (OMG, such a good finale!), and fell asleep on the couch before I could finish this spot – sorry, not sorry. Traffic on the way home from Chicago was a nightmare. If you tag along with me on SnapChat (@TheKentuckyGent) you probably saw several sing-a-longs + sitting in bumper to bumper traffic. 

Some of y’all may be wondering why I ventured up to Chicago this weekend, and for once (in what feels like forever) it was a trip that didn’t involve work. After the last 6 months of busting my ass to get this blog up and running 100% I needed some time off, out of town, with some old friends, and that’s exactly what this weekend was. It was a chance to recharge my batteries and get my head back in the game before 2 more weeks of travel, followed by NYFWM in July. As always, thanks again for tagging along with me on this crazy journey. I wouldn’t be here without any of y’all! I’m headed to Henderson, Kentucky for a Bluegrass Festival tomorrow with Kentucky Tourism, so be sure to follow along over on Instagram. Be prepared for several outfits like the one from today’s post (minus the Cubs tank) as I’ve officially adopted drawstring shorts, tanks, and slip on shoes as my travel uniform.

  • Whoa, your blog is pretty cool. I rarely have stumbled across male authors in this niche.

    • Thanks Susan! I agree. We are a rare breed, and I’m hoping to capitalize on that.

    Hi Josh, I’ve stumbled upon your blog and it’s quite impressing! The pictures are so clear and the way you dress it actually refreshing, and that’s probably cuz’ it looks like you don’t even try that hard – and I mean it in the good way 🙂 I’m Andrei Lukass, and I’ve started my own blog, called the Metropoliteen. The thing is, I am actually doing my best and trying really hard, and trying, but nobody seems to be reading my blog. I haven’t even got a comment since I’ve started it, and that’s a long time. Do you have any advice? How can I get people to comment and read my posts? Anyways, nice finding your blog, I’ll like it one Facebook just to make sure I get all your updates. Hope to hear soon!

    • Andrei, thanks for your kind words! I definitely appreciate it.

      As far as advice, I’d advise you to the same thing you complimented me on. Don’t try too hard! People are attracted to others that don’t try to be somewhere they’re not. Other than that biggest jump in traffic/comments for me came when I found other blogs similar to mine to read, comment, and interact at with on their blogs + social media. Their readers will more than likely check you out if they see your face coming up on their blogs + social. Hope that helps! I’ve always shared some blogging tips here: thekentuckygent.com/how-to.
