You’re probably all wondering what crazy drugs or coffee addiction I’ve got going on at the moment with all these blog posts flooding your email inboxes! Well, the truth is, I’m actually taking part in an online blogging course this month called ‘Blog With Pip’.
One of my favourite blog’s I love to read, Foxs Lane
recommended the course and you all know that my New Years Resolution was to do something fun for me and devote a bit more time to blogging, so whammo – I bit the bullet and enrolled in my very first e-course!
The course is fantastic, albeit a little overwhelming at times with blogging/social media overload! I am learning sooooooo much and hopefully you have noticed a few of the little changes I have started to implement on our blog (all feedback welcome!).
I’ve even gotten to know some new friends and now have a whole pile of interesting blogs to read!!! Check out Heike’s blog for more travelling around oz good-ness, or Cat’s blog for a granny-chic lifestyle fix – Tassie style, or if you want some new jewellery, have a look at the blog of Clare, in St Louis, USA (also great for some snow photos too!). There are heaps more lovely blogs which I will have to share with you over the next few weeks!
So, my assignment this week is to ‘Take Stock’. It’s just a little snap shot of what is happening here in my world at the moment …………………………… no laughing at my answers!
