A few weeks ago I let you in on how I convince my husband to watch what I want to watch on Netflix. And that was the first thing I felt compelled to share with you since becoming a member of the Stream Team. Today I thought I’d give you a little background on why I’m excited to be an ambassador for my favourite entertainment brand and introduce you to some of the people I share this gig with. I’ve rounded up 5 of my favourite Netflix posts so you can get to know my teammates – because sharing is caring, and because I want you to see how amazing Netflix nerds are!
For quite awhile now, I’ve been consuming Stream Team posts to get all the latest: the inside scoop and my peers’ honest opinions about what they’re currently enjoying on Netflix. When I was asked to join the crew this summer, I was thrilled to be able to share with my readers how I use Netflix for entertainment as well as education. Netflix brings my family together in many ways; it’s our favourite Friday night tradition. It also provides entertainment for girls’ night in and keeps my inner need-to-know-it-all satisfied with endless documentaries for every facet of life.
Each month, I’ll be writing about something different – and if you have any questions or topics you want addressed on my blog, feel free to shoot them my way! If you want to check out other Stream Team members, these are the folks who inspire me to bring my best to my blog, every day. Let me know in the comments if you have a special Stream Team member you’d like to give a shout out to.
In this post, Louise shares the shows she and her husband, Gary, have convinced each other to watch, along with the ones they encouraged their kids to watch. What I love about Louise’s writing is that it’s honest, down-to-earth and never gimmicky. I also find that we have a lot of the same interests so her recommendations come in handy for me, too! Browse through her Netflix posts for a variety of great topics.
Salma is my go-to girl for motivation about my physical wellness. She’s always on the go, working out, preparing healthy meals and doing everything else a mom and writer needs to do. But she makes time to learn from Netflix and I particularly enjoyed her post about the food documentaries to watch. When my husband and I watched the first one she mentioned here, it completely changed some of our eating habits which we’ve maintained for almost a year now. I’m always grateful for her inspiration!
Jamie turned me on to Aziz Ansari’s Master of None and This is Us – both of which my husband and I binge-watched together. So, thank you, Jamie, for making “What do you want to watch?” easy for us! I love Jamie’s tweets (check #StreamTeam to catch what everyone’s gabbing about) because they never steer me wrong. She and I are both obsessed with This is Us…but I think this post shows that she is just slightly more crazy than me. Here Jamie talks about loving a show so much, you Google the sh*t out of it!
Raj and I joined the Stream Team around the same time but I am already enjoying her content. I’ve been an avid reader of her blog for years, and our lives have intertwined in such a way that I am proud to also call her my friend. Having said that, I’m still pretty picky about what I consume online (because there is SO much out there!) and I don’t just read or promote work because the writer is my friend. Raj has a great flair for the written word and is also a social media maven. In this valuable post, she shares the tools she uses to create better blog content – and you can read how Netflix comes into play!
And if you have ever felt the highs and lows of a Netflix binge, Alison will commiserate with you – and make you laugh. She is one of the funniest bloggers I know and she just tells it like it is! In this post, she talks about what it’s like to get sucked into a show – and I know we can all relate. She makes me feel normal and yet happy about my quirks all at the same time. I love her work and I am so happy to be a Stream Team member with this funny lady!
So, what are you currently binging on or what have you enjoyed lately? And don’t forget to tell me which Stream Team member I need to get to know!
