Hey guys, I'm so excited to let you know that I've been invited on board with blogging talent agency, The Remarkables Group. I'm thrilled about the opportunities that may come but mostly, I'm stoked to be part of a team.
Blogging is a pretty solitary gig. Usually It's just me at the table with my full fat coffee and my Mac so i'm super thrilled to be able to call some long admired bloggers 'team mates'.
Nothing will change here at The Beetle Shack blog but hopefully behind the scenes you'll find me spending a little less time with my inbox and a little more time with your blogs.
Over the past 6 months or so, I've found a large portion of my 'blogging time' (you know that exists, right?) has been spent flagging and responding to emails from 'brands' and it's really cut into the time I have to actually sit and enjoy other peoples blogs- something that drew me into this community in the first place.
Obviously, you'll continue see the odd 'sponsored' content here, just like you always have. It will continue to be clearly labeled and hopefully relevant and of interest to you. If you'd like to read a little more about my views on that, please head back here. In fact, is was your lovely encouragement and feedback on this post that provided me with the courage to take this next step, so thank you! I do realise that there are a small portion of people who strongly disagree with the 'monetization' of blogs, but here at The Beetle Shack I have found a community that is supportive of women on a whole- the way we choose to raise our children and the way we choose to work for money to support them. Thanks for reading this space and providing me with the opportunity to make this blog more than a hobby. I'm endlessly grateful.
Okay, as you were.
