Oh wow it is the middle of July already! I have been going at life nonstop this month. So much to do, so little time!
Let’s start with the big news first. I am starting my very own blogger support group! This group is specifically for lifestyle bloggers. If you are looking for a specific niche support group those are definitely out there. I could recommend a couple if you ask me.
Most of you reading this are probably pretty aware of what a blogger support group is, but for those of you that don’t I will try to explain. Basically, it is a group of bloggers that support each other. In the group you can ask questions, get feedback, participate in social share threads, and more. Well, I am still working on the more part. I want to add interesting articles, product promotion threads, and trainings too!
Right now the group is small. So I really need your help promoting it. I’d love for you to share my tweet, even if you aren’t interested in joining. Maybe one of your friends or followers wants to start a lifestyle blog.
I am also looking for feedback. Suggestions on what you are looking for in a group and feedback on what I have so far is welcome. Leave a comment here, DM me on Facebook, or send me an email.
So my shameless self- promotion is over. Let’s move on to the rest of my life lately.
I am actually going to be putting out a blog post on my list of summer reads! I will link to it here when I get it posted.
I have been burning the midnight oil working on my blog, the Facebook group, and launching my own consulting services. Iv’e been watching or listening to a lot of TV while I work so I don’t fall asleep. Current favorites are Elementary, Property Brothers, and Good News. What are some of the shows you are watching lately?
Having two toddlers keeps me very busy. Right now they are on separate nap schedules again. So I am not getting very much done during the day. I’d love for them to nap at the same time but my oldest takes a late afternoon nap and the youngest takes an early afternoon nap. So I have one of them up at all times during the day. I know this sounds like a repeat because I had this problem a couple of months ago. Honestly, I found some better ways to manage my time, so I have been getting more done anyway.
So this was pretty complicated for a bit. Things are getting better. My husband and I are both trying harder yet we haven’t actually talked about what the problem was. This isn’t surprising because my husband is not a talker. Like at all. I think we both realized we need to be a bit more supportive and we need to spend more time together just the two of us and as a family. I do know that come October things are going to be stressful again because that is when his schedule gets busy again. Hopefully this time we can keep things from getting so bad.
So I already talked about this at the beginning of this post. I’ve been super busy with trying to launch the Facebook group. let me tell you, that is a TON of work. Just scheduling the threads takes forever! I totally have a new appreciation for the people that run the groups I am in. Hats off to you! As for the blog, I know I have been sharing a ton of sponsored content lately. Running a blog, raising a family, and saving for a house are all really hard to do on one income. I do want to let you know that I really try to only promote good things on Feisty Green Polka Dot. I am working on balancing that out with more of my own unsponsored content. As for Instagram, I am moving towards posting a bit less and engaging more. I will be liking and commenting more on your posts. Plus, I will be sharing more behind the scenes moments on Instagram Stories.
So that was a really long life lately update. I had a lot to say. I’d love to hear what you have been up to this month too! Share a link to your update post if you have one or leave a comment!
