That's a Wrap! - Blog Staycation Edition

I don't know about you, but I had a lot going on this weekend. And when I say a lot, I mean I spent a lot of time on my couch. Now you are probably thinking, "How did you have a lot going on if you spent it all on your couch Trish?" Let me explain.

I just wrapped up the Blog Staycation. If you aren't familiar with it, it is a blogging event that I co-host where you get your blog to do list taken care of. You make lists, meet new people, and get tips and ideas on how to make your blog grow.

Last year when we launched the event, I was out of town for most of it, so I was no able to host any of the events. This year I made sure I was free and hosted my first Facebook chat. I have to say it was amazing. I enjoyed connecting with fellow bloggers while engaging conversation about informative topics.

If you did not participate this time around, we will be hosting another event later this year! Make sure to join our Facebook Group for all kinds of blogging help along with filling out this form so we can update you on any upcoming events!


Now a couple of announcements and reminders:

I know it seems like I forgot about this, but I am hosting an e-reader reading challenge that launched March 1st. It goes through to the end of May. I am giving away a $25 Amazon gift card to one lucky participant who completes the challenge! There's still time to get involved!

I am starting a new series! Thanks to the staycation for getting my butt in motion on this one. Expect to see it launch next Thursday, April 9th. This series is going to focus on a day in a life of a short girl. I define short girl as anyone under 5'4". I will bring weekly tips and inspiration to all the shorties of the world :). Send me a message if you have a story to share! I want this to be a group effort used to inspire!

I launched a reader survey a few weeks back and I am still looking for your feedback! Please take a moment to fill out this short 5 question survey that will take you a minute at most!

Now last but certainly not least, please link up your Blog Staycation experience! We would love to hear how it went and what you accomplished!

I am so grateful for all of you who participated in the Spring 2015 Blog Staycation! Stay connected and you will always have backup! :)
