I can’t believe that it’s the start of February already! And what a month it has been!
No two days have been the same – I’ve been doing some supply teaching and freelance music on certain days, blogging on others. My niece – Baby Squidge – arrived and I’ve been up north a few times to bask in all of her squidgy glory. My new Facebook group has gone from strength to strength, becoming an amazing group of people that I’m immensely proud of…
But here’s something I didn’t expect: I’ve taken on the role of social media management for other bloggers! It started after a conversation I had with a blogger in a Facebook group in December, which led to me taking over her Pinterest and Twitter accounts, and it grew from there… I’ve now got a number of people that I’m doing this for, and I’m loving every minute of it – is it bad that I now get very excitable at the idea of organising Pinterest boards?
This is why I love the blogging community – the people and the conversations can lead to a completely different set of opportunities…
In all honesty, I wouldn’t say that I’ve been in the best of moods at times – the Black Dog comes and goes with no warning – but I’ve been able to go from day to day without putting extra pressure on myself. The problem is, when I feel low I lose all interest in writing posts, preferring to jot down ideas for when I feel better. Consequently, and much more positively, I now have lots of things to write about!
What about you guys? How was the start of 2017 for you?
