Ok, so we have been rudiculously slow with updating this blog (oh, the irony). However, That is not to say that we haven’t been getting lots of other stuff done. In fact, it’s been pretty busy around here…
With such a small team it can be difficult to juggle everything – this is a conversation that we have with bloggers all the time, many of whom work alone. The truth is, we never fail to be impressed by some of our members who are rocking their blogs with consistently amazing content, all whilst doing their own PR, social media and holding down full time jobs (and often being parents too!) #win
So, with this in mind we thought it only fair to give you a low down on what’s been happening at CAB…just so you don’t think we have been slacking!
1. We ran a campaign with Pen Heaven
Last month we ran a campaign with www.penheaven.co.uk. We were asked to choose a few great bloggers and blogs (from a long list) to be entered into a competition. The comp was for National Stationary Week (27 April – 3 May). We were spoilt for choice as the quality of blogs on our database is phenomenal. The bloggers we chose were asked to submit a picture of their workstation and Pen Heaven chose the best one to win a selection of amazing goodies.
Massive congratulations to…
Michelle at www.satchelsandpearls.com
Claire at www.claireabellemakes.com
Morgan at www.morganprince.com
Their entries were fab and their workstations were pretty darn gorgeous.
2. We met with ALOT OF PEOPLE
The last few months have been a whirlwind and we have made so many new partnerships that there is little doubt that the rest of the year is going to be an absolute blast! We are getting new member sign ups all the time and the quality of the blogs out there is pretty astounding. We have serious blog envy with every new sign up and there is always something that makes us wonder how the hell it was achieved. 😕
3. We did a bit of content creation
Did you know that we are all in fact bloggers ourselves!? Surprise! Yes, that’s right, the CAB team are multi taskers and we all run our own blogs and do quite a lot of content creation ourselves for other brands. We have been working with a number of companies and organisations – including a great social enterprise which provides services for disadvantaged young people in London. We have been creating websites, running campaigns, updating blogs, managing social media accounts, going on the radio and getting married (actually, the last one was just me).
So, that’s just a snapshot of what we have been up to. Never fear as the team will be growing over the next few months and we hope to do much more.
