GUEST BLOG | A Letter to Young Women Struggling to Love Their Height

Dear 16 year old Jenna,

You're not going to fit in (wow, that's a tough one to hear). Being 6+ inches taller than your peers makes fitting in physically impossible. My advice? Stop trying to. It will be hard at first, but the good news is that the sooner you accept this fact the sooner you will be able to begin the journey of learning to love how much you stand out. 

I know high school is a time when fitting in is super important. The desire to wear the same clothes as the other girls, or to be able to talk with your friends and actually be eye level with them is a valid thing to want to happen. But it’s unfortunately not going to happen. And instead of focusing on all the things that aren’t going to happen, try to shift your focus to the things that being tall opens up for you. Like never having to worry about getting a good view at a concert. Or never having to sit in the middle seat in a car. Or excelling in sports. Or how you will be looked at as a natural leader. I could go on forever, but you get the point. 

Dating will suck at times. You’re not going to understand why the tall boys you have a crush on always go for the shorter girls (*sigh*). It’s like c’monnn the short girls have so many more options!! Leave the tall boys for me! But that’s okay, high school isn’t for finding the love of your life. :) Being tall and having such a strong presence can intimidate people. It’s not your fault, and it’s not theirs either. They may just not be confident enough to date someone as powerful as you. But just you wait. Your time will come. In your twenties you’ll start viewing your height as a positive thing, and your inner confidence will radiate so bright that men of all ages, shapes, and sizes will be asking for a shot with you.  

Try not to worry so much about the boys, anyway. Have fun with your girl friends in high school. And don’t forget to go easy on your friends, as they’re fighting their own battles. So if they don’t understand exactly what you’re going through, that’s okay. <3 Build as many memories with them as possible, those four years will go by quicker than you could even imagine. 

Seek strong tall female role models, whether that’s actresses, business women, social media influencers, or athletes. There are so many amazing women for you to look up to. And don’t forget the best role model of them all: your mama. She’s your biggest supporter, number one fan, and loves you eternally, so never be afraid to open up to her when you’re feeling unsure of yourself. 

Lastly, the most important thing; when you walk through the hallways between classes, keep your head up. Don’t walk with your head down looking at the ground, hoping to blend in with the other students. Walking with your head down won’t make you appear to be any shorter, it will only make you look awkward. So instead walk tall. Keep your shoulders back, your head high, and be proud of all that you are. You. Are. Amazing. And the best is yet to come.  

All My Love,

26 year old Jenna

If you’re focusing on comment marketing as a reputation and branding effort, you can place more importance on popularity and relevancy, and less importance on the ease of the click-through. Examples for a search company might include
The obvious way to do this is to use an RSS reader. Personally, I like to use Hootsuite for this. I create a separate tab that houses my RSS feeds so I can glance at them whenever I check my other networks and leave a comment early on a new piece of content.

Blog commenting not only gives people an idea of who you are and what you’re about, but also allows you to build a strong presence that can draw traffic and leads to your site for months and even years to come.
If your goal is to get traffic, it’s critical to find blogs that offer a direct link to your website from your comment (instead of a link to your profile on that site). That can make a world of difference in the amount of referral traffic that you will receive. For example, good targets for a search marketing agency might include

Most Internet marketers treat commenting primarily as a link building tactic (spamming, basically) and don’t really give it a fair shake as a real marketing tactic.
But true comment marketing is about sharing meaningful opinions and thoughts in a forum of like-minded individuals in order to encourage interaction, make connections and earn exposure.

Hello, I’m Mikael Rigby.

Welcome to my about page. I started writing in my early school years after a creative writing assignment for my English teacher. I did creative writing for almost a year before I thought about doing something else.
I had always loved doing research papers because I’m passionate about learning. When you combine writing talent with a love of learning, dissertation writing only makes sense as a job.
I’m passionate about aiding the students of the future in their school career. When they get too busy, I am there to help.

Hello everyone, it’s Philip here!
I work as an academic writer and have created this content with the intent of changing your life for the better. I started honing my writing skills in my school years. I learned that my fellow students needed writing help—and they were willing to pay for it. The money was enough to help pay my tuition for my remaining semesters of college.
Ever since college, I have continued to work as an academic writer. I was hired by a writing company based in the United Kingdom. Since then, the essays that I have written have been sold around Europe and the United States.
In my line of work, I have become used to hearing, “Philip Flowers, can you help me meet my writing assignment deadline?” I know that I can save their time.

Thanks for stopping by my page! I’m Magdalena May.

Even though I jokingly credit my aunt for my writing talent, I know that it is a talent I have fostered from childhood. Though my grandmother is a writer, I also started out young.
I’ve always had a way with words, according to my favorite teacher . I was always so excited in English when we had to do a research assignment .
Now, I help current students achieve the grades that have always come easily to me. It is my way of giving back to students because I understand the troubles they must overcome to graduate.
