My 30 Days of Mom challenge got off to a great start!
So great that I am combining my week 1 and week 2 goals.
If you recall, weeks 1 & 2 were all about growing my passion and having a day to myself.
Of course, with Tween Girl away for the entire month, I have a bit more time to focus on things that are important to me.
Growing my passion began with me signing up for Lynda.com, which offers online educational video courses. I loaded my playlists with courses ranging from learning photography to building an online community. The videos are taught by industry experts and most are quite easy to follow.
Of course, there are tons of free videos offering online education for various topics. Andrea from The Branded Solopreneur has a great guest post from Amanda K. Jones of LaptopLifestyleMom.com on creating images in PhotoShop. Of course, I was all over this! I downloaded the trial version of Adobe Photoshop and played around with creating images.
While in the image creating mood, I reached out to Kasey from Sublime Styled Stock regarding working on a lil something for me, more to come later.
By Saturday, growing my passion and having the day to myself kinda morphed into one. I was one of about 20 other Atlanta bloggers invited to brunch with YP (formerly known as Yellow Pages, yes, they still exist). YP has created a program for area bloggers who know the city in which they reside. They’ve created a program called YP Insiders for area bloggers to attend local events, write reviews and blog about the events. This is a great opportunity and I am excited to have this type of exposure that will open doors for unRehearsed.
For all my visual readers, here are some pics and images from the first 9 days of the 30 Days of Mom:
Excited to see what the next 20 days will bring!
