If you follow me on social, you'll probably seen my whining. “ANOTHER snow day? School's closed AGAIN?” Yada yada.
These last two weeks have been brutal.
From a getting-work-done standpoint at least. From a make-a-snowman-sled-down-a-hill standpoint, it's been great.
(See I know how to have fun!)
But this girl is a working mama and out of the last two weeks, my kids were out of school 8.5 days! In fact, the only day my kids went to school was on their birthday (which I still need to write a post about on my personal blog) and a half day the week before.
It was tough to keep up with my Burt's Bees work and my blog work. Oh and did I mention I threw a birthday slumber party for my 8 year old and a birthday party for my 5 year old? Yep, I did that on the weekend in between the snow storms. I finally had to let go of the crazy notion that I could get the same amount of work done with the go kids home so much. My mom watched them some, but some days she had to work and others I couldn't get out of the driveway even if I wanted to.
If you're wondering why it's been quiet around here, that's why. Life and snow. But I'm on it now so here's all the newsy news of things coming up:
Final Days to Register for Pinning Perfect's March Session!
The class Welcome email drops THIS Friday so signups close Wednesday night. Find out how often to pin, what works and what doesn't, and more in this amazing Pinterest class.
The Pinning Perfect instructor, Anna Luther, knows her stuff. She went from 90,000 pageviews to MILLIONS in just 18 months. And 80% of that traffic comes from…. you guessed it… Pinterest!
Anna says: “I have never been featured by Pinterest. I've never had a promoted pin. Big pinners don't pin my things on a regular basis. I don't have viral posts. I don't have a million followers on Pinterest. And that's what I love about Pinterest so much – you can produce AMAZING results just by following a simple strategy that actually works. (And how many followers you have doesn't matter anymore).”
New Posts Coming!
You'll see a new post on Thursday and next week will return to normal. Pinky promise.
Media Kit Smash Self-Paced Is Coming!
For those of you waiting for Media Kit Smash self-paced to be released, I had planned to have that released by the end of February. But snowmageddon kept happening and I really just couldn't find time to get it finished. So I'm putting a date to it. The course will go on sale Wednesday, March 18. Already taken the course? Look for an email later that week with instructions on how to access the course.
Did you get crazy weather too? How did you fare?
