We absolutely love BeHappy.Me and we know you’re going to love it, too. If you haven’t heard of BeHappy, it’s where you want to go if you want to be inspired, lifted up and reminded that there is always a silver lining in life.
We got the chance to interview Julie who is listed as ‘Our Talker’ on the popular site.
Without further adieu, here is our interview with Julie with BeHappy.Me.
We love the idea! Can you tell our readers what is behappy.me all about?
Behappy.me is a website devoted to sharing daily inspirational quotes that are nicely designed, and easily shared. You can choose to receive them in your inbox every day, or follow us instead on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.
The idea in general is to spread joy and happiness, or just make your own day a bit brighter. If you want, you can also get your favourite quote framed, and we’ll send it to you
How did you come up with the idea?
The idea was born out of understanding how social media works these days – people are ready to share great content. So why not create great content to be shared? We took the wisdom of this world and put them into nice designs. Now these great messages are more likely to be shared around the virtual world.
Also, people these days are hungry for information, but don’t necessarily want to read an entire book to get the wisdom. With Behappy we’re spoon-feeding it to the people, giving them small, easily-digestible bit of information that they can take with them throughout the day.
Where do you find inspiration for new quotes?
We take quotes from the wisdom of this world. There have been so many inspirational people, with so many great quotes. We choose the ones that mean the most to us, and hopefully they’ll mean something to our friends and followers too.
What are the three most popular quotes?
69 thousand stumblers on StumbleUpon: “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” -Rumi
14 thousand stumbles on StumbleUpon: “Wishing things were different is a great way to torture yourself.” -Raptitude.com
130 shares on Facebook: “Grudges are a perfect waste of happiness. Let it go!” -Unknown
Which quote touched you the most? Why?
The quote that has impacted my life the most is by Leonardo DaVinci “It has long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”
It’s just a great reminder that to be great, you have to go and do. Things won’t happen otherwise, and the future is entirely up to you. So if things aren’t turning out the way I want them to, then I remember this quote, change my attitude and behaviour, and go and do.
Can subscribers choose quotes by themes?
Subscribers can browse through our quotes by keyword or author. Say you like Einstein quotes, just type in “Einstein”, and all of his quotes will pop up. Or you can check out the quotes by seeing the most recent, most commented, or most popular. But generating your own quote is a feature that you might see in the future.
Where can we find you quotes outside of your site? App? Twitter?
Right now you can find is in many different places, and choose whichever platform is easiest for you! There’s email, all you do is subscribe on our website (www.behappy.me). You can find us on Twitter at @behappyme, or Facebook. We’re also on tumblr (http://behappyblog.tumblr.com/), and we’re also on Pinterest and Instagram.
Tell us more about the framed quotes? What are the options? How much do they cost?
The framed quotes are the first available product to get your favourite quote at home. Right now they come in two sizes, a smaller size, and a larger size. They cost 15.90$ and 19.90$ respectively. But each day there are 5 new quotes, and for that day, they’re available for a special discount – 4$ off of the price.
What’s next for behappy.me?
There are many exciting changes in store for Behappy.me
One, we’ll make our quotes available on more products. What our users have been asking for are more price-friendly items, we we’ll be making things like stickers and t-shirts.
Another great idea we’re working on- a quote generator. Anyone will be able to create their own quote, and get them on their choice of product.
But definitely we’ll keep providing great quotes on a daily basis.
