Ramblings of a mother

Friday Catch UP

Fridays! Yep, Fridays, they come and go super fast these days. I’ve been super busy with my blog and other jobs that I have lined up. Time to play catch up!

These past two weeks have flown by so fast. I have hardly had the time to keep up with my blog. I launched my Mom Blogs Feature, this past Tuesday. I was very excited about this, but I was extremely unsure about the response that I would receive.

I began the feature series with Nicola’s blog – Peanut Gallery 24/7. I was overwhelmed with the amazing responses that I received! Not to mention, Nicola is a great person to know!

My second feature was a guest post from Lara’s blog – Images by Lara. To be honest, I fell in love with this blog. It’s a great combination of photography and words. If you ever thought about the saying “a picture says a thousand words”, I can tell you that Lara’s blog gives that saying meaning.

I have received some great offers regarding my blog as well as some other work offers this week. In fact more than one amazing work offer. I am so excited to get started on this! I love being productively busy! Don’t ask me why, it just makes me happy.

My family from Johannesburg visited me just yesterday. I was so excited to see them, it’s been a long time since I’ve spent some time with them.

My husband, God bless him, bought me a new phone as I was having tons and tons of phone issues. (THANK YOU) .

I have had yet another idea for The Mom Movement – I will tell you more about that once I gather my resources and thoughts.

I have finally setup my mailchimp so that when a new post is updated an automated email goes out – you may be thinking, “really??? That makes your list???”. Well, yep it does actually because you have NO IDEA how long I’ve been putting that off!

Lastly, I have received the Liebster award! Yep, two months and two awards, I am so happy! I’m looking for nominations, so if you would like to be nominated, leave a comment below or send me an email using the form here.

What have you achieved this week? I would love to know! Also, don’t forget to take a look at my services page, for any help that you might need! And remember, Tuesdays & Thursdays are Mom Blog Feature days!
