Hey guys!

Do you see the beauty that is that photo above? Yes. The Blogilates Social Network (beta) has LAUNCHED!!!

2 YEARS in the making.  THOUSANDS of development hours later…your ideas and my vision have intertwined to create this ultimate health and fitness haven.

What is it exactly?

Well, imagine a place where you can go in and be immediately embraced by love and inspiration from people all over the world. A place where all your friends support you and actually want to see you succeed. A place where you can equally exchange ideas, tips, and stories with people who appreciate your contribution and who need you as much as you need them.

This community is made up of POPsters from all over the globe who you may not know yet, but will become very close friends with very soon 🙂 If you share a passion for sweat, salads, smoothies, and motivation…this is the place for you!

Why did I start it?

Back in 2012 was the first time Facebook started charging me to share my posts with you guys. And no, I am not talking about “sponsored ads.” They changed the algorithm so that if I (the owner of a fanpage) posted a status update, like a simple picture of me stretching, NATURALLY the picture would only show up in the main feed for 10-12% of my facebook fans. Why? Well see below:

facebook charging

I understand that every company needs to make money, but not like this. $1000 so that I can show all of you guys my new yoga pose? Back in the day, what I post is what you see! Because you made the effort to come all the way over from YouTube or this blog to give me your “like” and subscribe to my posts. But nooooo, facebook didn’t want it that way, not without a price.

I was OUTRAGED! Not only did my likes go down, but the worst was the loss of the community we had on there. I used to be able to see your posts, reply to them, and get a sense for who you were. But after that, no more. I felt sooo disconnected from you.

So what was a girl to do?

Start her own social network. THE BLOGILATES SOCIAL NETWORK.

blogilates map

THE MAP. It’s amazing how you can take anger and frustration and turn it into positive energy 🙂 Above is one of my fave features from the Blogilates Social Network! It’s the POPster map! This was a snapshot from yesterday as people were pinning themselves! Soon enough, you’ll be able to find local POPsters in your city to workout with, train for a half marathon with, or even just grab brunch with! The point is the connect you guys together…to make real, long lasting, healthy friendships.

my.blogilates leaderboard

GROUPS. One of the best parts of planning the site for you guys was thinking up what groups you would want to join! This is a fantastic way to meet other POPsters with your same interests. Some are by location (ie. Aussie POPsters) and some are by hobbies like “runners”. Join as many as you fancy!

THE LEADERBOARD. Oooh? Did we never discuss? You’ll see that when you’re logged in, you are able to earn POPster Points. What does that mean and how and where and omg!!??? Haha, you shall see 🙂

blogilates workout calendar

THE CALENDAR. Working out couldn’t be any easier. Here is your #AprilAbs workout calendar complete with playlist 🙂

blogilates forum

THE FORUM. So far, I am most addicted to the conversations in the forums. I LOVE how you guys are spilling out your real thoughts and emotions in here. I think it has to do with this one common thread we all share. We trust each other and we know we’re here to genuinely help one another. Guys, this is special. Never lose this.

Guys, after 2 years of developing this site and starting from SCRATCH with 3 different development companies, I can’t believe we finally launched! It really took me so long because I only wanted to give you EXCELLENCE. Nothing less.

The first 2 companies I worked with delivered sub-excellence and I wouldn’t have it. We were so close to launching both times but I said, if it isn’t going to be good enough for my POPsters then it isn’t going to ever go live. The time and the money spent over and over again on getting this right finally paid off…because after seeing your tweets to me upon initial launch, I knew you appreciated everything you saw 🙂

Oh and ummm…upon launch y’all broke the internet. The site died for a good 40 min before my developers could put it back together. You were stampeding to my.blogilates.com!! It was a scary but proud moment for us all I think 😛

Now, the site isn’t perfect. We’re still in beta and from your responses, I know that there is a page loading time issue and a profile editing issue. Please be patient as we debug everything! Also, comment below if you see anything weird with the site. You feedback is necessary to make the site better and better every day!

Anyway…I really hope you guys like it! This project is made just for you 🙂

OH!! And before I forget, here is my latest video “5 Best Thigh Slimming Exercises”:

The 5 best exercises to sculpt your thighs are:

1. Inner thigh lift

2. Pointed inner thigh lift

3. Criss-cross scissors

4. Leg circle Lowers

5. Butterfly kickouts

Alrighty guys…GO MAKE a my.blogilates.com account now!!! I’ll see you on the inside. And don’t forget to add me as a friend!

<3 Cassey

    I wanted to check the site out since i hadn’t been there in a while. Now it’s gone. i really want to know what happend.

  2. Shaylyn says:

    Did my.blogilates.com get taken down or something? The links all direct me back to this website, anyone know why?

  3. SondraVee says:

    Hi there!
    I was wondering what happened to the community?
    It seems to be gone, the link is redirected to the blogilates homepage?

    Thanks for any news on this. 🙂

    1. Diana says:

      I wonder the same thing!! Cassey please answer!!

        1. Amanda says:

          Same here! Loved having all the daily videos all lined up, but with some effort I can prepare them the night before instead, it was just super convenient having them ready! Any plans on bringing the site back?

          1. Tiegan says:

            SAMEEEEEE!!!! i hope it comes back! 🙂

          2. leo says:

            WWHERE DID IT GOOOO 🙁 cassey we love you but you cant seriously just ignore this and not address the issue at all!

          3. Julie says:

            You can watch all the daily videos on her youtube playlist, ligned up ready to use: https://www.youtube.com/user/blogilates/playlists?flow=grid&sort=dd&view=1

            Hope the network will come back up again!

    2. supremely says:

      any update on what happened to the social network??

  4. Darrel says:

    At this time it sounds like WordPress is the top blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  5. Miruna says:

    You are just AMAIZING Cassey! I love you! For real. I like your new social network. It is a great idea. But you have to fix the notifications. I can’t see them. Anyway, you are doing a great work. You are helping so many of us to live healthy lives and be stronger. Cassey, you are serious motivation. 🙂

  6. Julie says:

    I LOVE the social network!! It’s soooo so great!! Congrats. I have three ideas to improve: Today’s workout keeps landing on april 7. And second, when you message a person – the newest messages are at the bottom so you have to scroll all the way down to read the newest message. Also, third, I love the design but each time I click on something in my menu in my profile – I have to scroll down to see it – which means that the profile info etc. takes up a lot of space… I don’t know how this could be improved…. Maybe the menu could be deleted, since it is also in the right side of the website – as far as I can see. And maybe the trophy-thing can be removed or minimized – maybe next to the name – because it takes up about an inch of space.. 🙂 But I love that you have done this, it shows that you have a passion and you fight hard to achieve your goals!! you are of great inspiration!

    1. may alrent says:

      how can i post something here ?

  7. Christina Henderson says:

    This is so beautiful! I think I will have an easier time staying motivated and active.

  8. BIkkaTeeks says:

    I LOVE YOU Cassey.
    No, really. Thank you for all the videos and now for the social networking site! I found you a some weeks ago and I’m hooked. I joined the website a few hours ago and now I have friends and having conversations, giving supports, and receiving them. This is amazing. THANK YOU and keep up the good work! Sending tons of good karma your way! XOXO

  9. Rachel says:

    Hey there! Here’s a bug I found – I’m trying to edit my “base profile” and get this error every time: “Please make sure you fill in all required fields in this profile field group before saving. ”
    I’m filling in ALL the fields, and I’ve tried in both Safari and Firefox.
    I’ll keep trying 🙂

    1. Jessica says:

      Same thing keeps happening to me too! Hopefully it will get sorted soon 🙂

  10. Carina says:

    Hey Cassey!
    I tried to sign up at my.blogilates.com several times now but i never got an email confirming my account.
    I don’t know what to do. Please help me i really want to use this platform :/

    1. Julia H says:

      check your spam e-mails

      1. Carina says:

        Yes i have but they’re not in there either. I checked every folder there is :/
        But thanks for the suggestion 🙂

  11. Ashley says:

    I;m still wondering what the PoPster points are for! #curious

  12. Pris Bustamante says:

    I don´t understand all the complains about the calendar being available only at the social network, it is still available here, and the videos are at YouTube as well…

  13. Kristy says:

    The site worked fine yesterday and I loved it but today it won’t let me login. It keeps saying “unspecified error”

    Kristy

  14. Angelique says:

    well. what the h….???
    Nice that you launched a social platform, butt now i have to find myself an workout video because the whole page is down…Too bad.
    This blog worked just fine and i was really motivated.
    Hope you fix it soon or get the vids back on here.

    Love

  15. Caitlin says:

    Hi Cassie!!!

    I want to go on the new site, but it’s not loading for me:(
    should I try something else?

    Caitlin

  16. Izzy Burridge says:

    Cassey, someone thought of a name for the may calendar on the app, we would like to ask for it to be focused on the lower body and butt: so it could be called May Bootay! Or something like that… 🙂 thanks so much for these monthly calendars you do for us, we appreciate it!

  17. Daniela says:

    Dear Cassey:

    I love your website and everything you do with that kickass energy you have! I’ve been following your workouts as much as I can, every morning specially. Thing is, I cannot enter the new website, therefore I can’t watch all the videos for todays workout: :/ I’m from Chile, would that be the reason why? I get is a beta version, but I hope it will work soon 🙂
    Thank you for cheering me everyday to shape my body the way I want it!
    Lots of love!!

  18. Julia H says:

    Hi Cassie!

    I tried to create an account but I keep on getting invalid keylinks 🙁 Could you please ask your people to fix this?

  19. Navina Bonsack says:

    I NEED HELP BECAUSE I CANT REGISTER!

    Dear Cassey and dear community,

    you are great and such an inspiration and therefore I love talking with you guys. Cassey, the idea of an social network is fantastic but I’ve got a problem. I tried to register three times now and I neither get an confirmation e-mail, nor can I log in! I’m so sag especially because your calender is only availbale at the network. I hope you can help me guys because I want to be part of our network too!

  20. Lena says:

    I just signed up for it and am amazed with all the supportive and friendly POPsters out there!
    But I was wondering if I could somehow link my account to my Facebook account? I noticed that I was given the choice of doing that when I was creating the account and I now regret not linking it :/

  21. Briana Courtney says:

    That’s awesome! Oh, and this has nothing to do with this post, but I noticed some of the items in your shop like the seamless thongs don’t have an XS size, and me, being a tiny 15 year old, would LOVE it if you made some! Thanks Casey! You are such an inspiration! 🙂

  22. Anne says:

    Hello Cassey
    I am so happy to join this social media platfrom. I keep sharing ideas and thoughts and found few good friends here.
    NOTE: I am facing problems with the POPsters point. It is all stuck to a number and only increases when I am adding a buddy. I am just curious to be visible on the leader board too but I am stuck. Please help. Thankyou.

  23. Amanda says:

    Hi Cassey.

    Thanks for providing a community for your followers! I like the site. I’ve tried to edit my profile and even though I’ve filled in every box, I keep getting an error message that says: Please make sure you fill in all the required fields in this profile group before saving. Thanks again.

  24. Dayna says:

    Hey cassey! I love the network!<3 but sadly i am unable to view the map, i waited a few days now but nothing has changed so i thought i better mention it. Im from the uk if that makes any difference and am viewing the page on my ipad.

  25. Irmina says:

    Cassey! I love your social media platform! I had problems with finding POPsters in my country and now it’s no problem! Thank you:)

  26. Dean Joseph says:

    Wow! My mind is blown. You are an inspiration! A social media platform? Whats next? Great Job! Dean likes this….

  27. K says:

    Such a great idea Cassey!!! Haven’t signed up yet, but hopefully I will soon. And I’m guessing you saw my comment on that Facebook post of yours since that’s me and my mum in the screenshot you have showing us that you have to pay (????!!!!!!) to post things on Facebook!

  28. Cassandra Luis says:

    Is anyone else having issues creating a forum..? it doesnt allow me to !! am i doing something wrong or not going to the right place? lol someone please help me figure this out!

  29. Estefania says:

    I LOVE IT SO MUCH! Thank you for this awesome gift Cassey :’)

  30. Katharine says:

    This is SUPER exciting! It’s an AMAZING website (with the exception of a few bugs)!!!! And everybody on it is SO nice!!! One thing: Will you (as in Cassey Ho) add new groups regularly or will we just have those groups?

  31. Kate says:

    Hey Cassey!!
    Love the Blogilates social network! However I keep trying to edit my profile base info (name, location, birthday etc.) and for some reason none of the info will save! I think it’s because the birthday section isn’t popping up – I’m not sure if it is registering that as being blank, but whenever I do try to save my info (all lines being filled out) it says: “Please make sure you fill in all required fields in this profile field group before saving.” So none of my info will save. Just wanted to let you know, so excited to get more involved on this site!

  32. Sarah says:

    THIS IS AMAZING! I realize there are bugs and glitches, but the two times I’ve been able to log in and explore I have LOOOOOVED it! I appreciate the specific forums and groups and whatnot; I actually had a bit of a hard time with the app because it seemed like a lot of people were posting shots of their legs, abs, etc. all the time and it was hard not to look at those since they tended to show up in almost every category of the app. As someone recovering from an ED, that kind of thing was not helpful for me to see, and I finally took the app off my phone. But with the specific groups and forums on my.blogilates, I’ve been able to talk and connect with others and stick with the areas that are super helpful and motivating for me and steer clear of the “before and after” area, since that’s a bit triggering for me in my current circumstance (though I get how before and afters could be wonderful and motivational for others—we’re just all in different places). So whether that was intentional or not, thank you so much for the forums and groups for that reason. Your workout vids and positivity have been key in getting me better, and now having the social network too looks like it will be an awesome support network as well. THANK YOU for all you do, Cassey!

  33. Maria says:

    I love this so much THANK YOU CASSEY
    Just made an account, the website is actually a little slow but I guess a lot of people are signing up. I feel a lot more safer in it, can’t wait to join the blogilates calendar 2 months from now, because I’m currently on the Insanity program. But still following you and your videos Cassey!! You’re amazing love you

  34. Naydie says:

    Ah! I’m there on the Forum screen cap! Nayda B. That’s me, yay!!!

  35. Heather P. says:

    Congratulations on getting this up and running! I’m sure you’ll have kinks to work out, but it’s great that you found a way to create your own community online, rather than having to pay Facebook to grow what you had over there!

    Best of luck, and I’ll sign up right now if it’s working…if not, I’ll definitely be back soon!

  36. Tracy says:

    Seems like the server is being over loaded and running slow

  37. Mónica says:

    Oh Cassey thank you so much. You do a lot for us. I think I will never be grateful enough

  38. Franzi says:

    Cassey i’m so so thankful for you and this website! i have an account since 2 days and already made friends and met so many lovely people!!! its amazing, i finally have someone who suports me all the time. its wonderful. we’re all so thankful for this!
    the only probloem i have is that whenever i try to change my bio it says “please make sure you fill in all require fields in this profile field group before saving.” some other POPsters have the same problem…maybe you can help us somehow. anyways the site is gorgeous we all have tons of fun and enjoy it so much!
    btw you can add me and i’d love it if cassey would send me a request hgaha! <3 my name is fit_franzi <3 sending tons of love and thanks to you cassey

  39. Natalie says:

    Thank you so much Cassey! I’ve already made an account, unfortunately I will be able to “live” on the site only in summer… Preparing for exams.

  40. Maxine says:

    Is anyone else having trouble updating their profile? I’m trying to change my bio but it keeps saying “Please make sure you fill in all required fields in this profile field group before saving.” Except, all the fields are filled so I don’t know what to do.

    1. Maxine says:

      Also can’t see my notifications.

    2. Katharine says:

      Same thing happened with me…I think we might just have to wait until the bugs are fixed.

  41. Jenny says:

    I tried to register but the activation link /key in my e-mail is wrong! If I click on it it always says something link “invalid activation key” -.-

  42. Anna says:

    And not all groups have forums. 😮
    BUt all in all it’s cool!

  43. Suzanne says:

    Hey Cassey,

    I can’t edit my profile because it won’t let me save the changes. It just keeps saying I have to fill in all the required fields, but I did!
    It is a really awesome website though! You are amazing for making it happen! <3

  44. Camilla says:

    why can’t i reply to a topic? 🙁

  45. Yaira says:

    I absolutely love you for all you do!!!! I already sent you a direct message so I will leave it at that… Honored to be part of all your projects and dreams unfolding…. So lucky to have encounter someone like you!!!THANKS

  46. Tia says:

    you forgot to add the district of columbia

  47. Deirdre says:

    Hey Cassie, you need to add http:// in front of all website addresses that you want to link to in your blog. In the WordPress post area where you insert links, the URL for the social network should read http://my.blogilates.com. Without http://, the links become https://www.blogilates.com/my.blogilates.com, which is why many POPsters received the “Page Not Found” error. That aside, congratulations on the launch of the network!!

    Also, if I may, I would like to request for more arm and back workouts that do not require equipments please. You have so many amazing abs and legs workouts, but arms/back don’t get nearly as much love!

  48. Junie says:

    Can you please please please make a Dallas and a general Texas group. We has lots of towns here that would like to connect 🙂

    1. Lydia B. says:

      That would be great! I second this! Hopefully, everything straightens out soon. I haven’t been able to check it out. Can’t wait to get a peek for myself! Congratulations, Cassey! Lots of love from Texas!! xx

  49. Cloots says:

    Maybe they’re taking precautions against that Heartbleed thing? I kind of hope so (If you haven’t read about it, The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in popular software, This weakness allows stealing of information by reading your computers memory, including any personal info or passwords you have recently entered. Even Facebook and Google were both affected despite being huge, very hi tech companies)

  50. Liz says:

    You’re amazing Cassey, THANK YOU!

  51. gabi c says:

    page not working!! =/ can’t create and account! hope its fix soon!

    1. Laura says:

      I can’t create it either! Cassey, what’s the matter?

      1. Anais says:

        I can’t either! What’s going on? =/

  52. Lina says:

    I LOVE your website so much. I feel like everyone is friends there and it is so motivating. I can not tell you how grateful I am that you do what you are doing and that I stumbled over your youtube channel a few months back. Keep going girl, you are amazing.

  53. Pao says:

    Hi Cassey, i just want to take a few minutes and say a huge endless THANK YOU. The web page is beautiful, amazing, and I am so proud of you for making this happen! As you said it’s not perfect, but flaws are normal, and we’ll be patient and help you improve the already wonderful site. I’ve been having trouble changing my BIO introduction, I can’t add more information.

    XOXO

    THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH CASSEY!

  54. Cassey, I am so happy that you have created your own social network! I am so excited to be a part of it and be able to meet other popsters!

  55. Tess says:

    Like most of the others, I’m also having trouble with pages saying ‘page not found’. It worked last night but I went to check my notifications and it wouldn’t let me check my profile. The sides of the page would load but not the middle (my profile, groups, etc.) :/

  56. juvelyre says:

    hey girls, how to register?please help

  57. grace says:

    Cassey, You really don’t post simple pictures on facebook and I mean anyone will actually check and share a photo of someone stretching their leg way up while sitting on the floor.

    Just show your simple picture in the forum and we’ll share it.

  58. Kristin says:

    Oh god, Im glad I came over here to see that other people have troubles too. I was a bit worried when it said “Page not found” when I clicked on my profile, but it only seems to be a new bug. But that raises a new question: what am I going to do tonight if the Blogilates Social Network isn’t working?! (⊙.☉)7
    Congratulations, Cassey, only one day in and I’m addicted. Think I’m going to take some photos for the app and then start todays workout! 🙂

  59. Mariana says:

    I love the site, but i have some problemas with the notificationes because its show like 20 unread things and i cant open that 🙁

    1. Mah says:

      You’ve got to choose one notification and then click on it. I was struggling with this too!

  60. Joy says:

    Hi, Cassey!
    I’m loving the site! I used it a loooooot yesterday.
    Unfortunately, I’m not able to login today 🙁 It must be some kind of bug, because on the left side bar there is the option “log out” and on the middle of the page “Register” (but without any forms to fill).

    1. Sid says:

      I’ve been having this problem all afternoon, too 🙁

    2. Sasha says:

      I have the same problem! :/

  61. Laetitia says:

    Hey Cassey 🙂
    I found this page : http://my.blogilates.com/register/
    But I can find a way to register 🙁
    Can anybody help me please?
    Thank you & Have a great day xx

    1. Camilla says:

      same here 🙁 just a blank page

      1. Quinn says:

        I would retry again now. I think possibly the server went down for a little bit. Frequently, new websites can face issues on the first day when accommodating a lot of new members at once. Upon clicking on the website you listed it should immediately prompt you with registration information. I had to retry the link a few times to get it to load properly. I hope this helps!!!

  62. CuteIssa says:

    why page not found????

    1. Judi says:

      The link is wrong. It’s my.blogilates.com 🙂

    2. blogilates says:

      there’s a major problem with the site right now…we’re working on it

  63. Leanne says:

    I appreciate how you always work so hard for us popsters! Love ya!

  64. Mallory says:

    i’m trying to edit my profile on the community but it’s not letting me

  65. Camilla says:

    OMG IM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!

  66. Eveline says:

    Hey Guys,

    The link opens a window that says: Page not found 🙁

  67. Astrid says:

    It always says “page not found”!!! What should I do?

    1. G. says:

      The hyperlinks in the blog post aren’t working because they aren’t valid. This is the right link: my.blogilates.com

      1. Eveline says:

        Thanks! But now I only get a screen that says Register.. but there is nothing to register in. :S
        And what ever other thing I click it just goes to the page register :S

        1. Ana says:

          The same happens to me 🙁 Does anyone know why?

          1. Elle says:

            Me too! Tried all 4 major browsers, no difference, still that empty page… yet I see that other people are able to register since they show up on the new user sidebar.

          2. Jill says:

            Same thing happening here, bummer!

    2. Brooke says:

      same issue. they are obviously having some more problems with the site. it’s to be expected since it was a Beta launch. hopefully Cassey can get it fixed soon! I can’t wait to sign up and see everything!

  68. Jenny says:

    Really loving the positivity of the forums Cassey! It’s so nice to have a place where we can talk and not get judged about our efforts/progress etc! Keep up the good work!

  69. Lindsey says:

    The link isn’t working!

  70. Amanda says:

    Please help..I have shut off all email notifications however I keep getting them!! I have gotten over 60+ emails in just one forum since yesterday…not sure what to do?? I love the site otherwise, great job!!

  71. Julia H says:

    Hey problem! I didn’t receive an e-mail for connecting with myblogilates

    1. Lina says:

      You have to wait a bit, it took some time. It is absolutely worth the while. If you are not very patient you can connect with Facebook.

  72. Dorothy says:

    Hey Cassey , it shows Page not found error. I am eager to get started !

  73. SSANNAALICIA says:

    Cassey, I can’t reach the website! How come? 🙁

    1. Violeta says:

    I am not the best at doing workouts but I try once in a while, these days I mostly don’t have time though so I am waiting for the summer holiday to workout! Because then I know I will have time (since I always die of boredom during the summer), so I cannot wait!
