Well this has been a busy week - with a full day of paid work, and today spent preparing food - meals and snacks for the weekend when we'll be at a swim carnival for both full days. Plus all the daily to and from school, before and after school sports, packing endless kids bags, squeezing in some exercise! Packed full - but satisfyingly good!
I still managed to fit in plenty of blogging - getting some good posts out for my other blog - Be Our Best - and keeping up with this blog too. - I even managed to squeeze in some sewing!
But that is all day to day stuff to maintain my blogs - so what of progress in growing the blogs?
Well I did lots of finding other similar blogs and commenting on them with regard to growing a community for my other blog. It's slow going at the start - trying to get it out there and noticed, but I know I need to put in the groundwork - and next week on my plan is to start looking for where I can guest post or something similar for that blog.
For this one - my creative blog, I've been trying to decide what my next step will be.
One of my favourite sayings is:
"Success comes from doing things differently."
Well - my blog is steadily growing with me adding sewing tutorials quite regularly and getting them featured on sites like All Free Sewing and Craftgossip which give me great streams of traffic. But I've been trying to think what I can do that is new and different.
What I've decided is - videos!!
I'm a big youtube fan - and it's where I always turn to when I want to learn how to do something.
So - I figured that I should give it a go myself!
I've never done one before - so am starting from scratch learning how.
As with anything I learn - I'm going to jump right in and just give it a try - so I'm putting it out there that I'll produce my first video by Easter!
I've decided on the topic and started making notes this week on what I'd like to do - I now have 2 weeks to learn how and make it happen!
Definitely stepping out of my comfort zone with this - but that's what I need to do to learn and grow!
Any tips or hints on making videos would be very much appreciated!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
