Welcome to this month’s blog progress report.
This month feels like it’s absolutely flown by, as I’ve had the kids home for the holidays for a fortnight of it. I love the school holidays, but they always throw me out so I will have a lot to do this coming week to make up for it!

This month, so far, it has been about keeping things ticking along and balancing everything with home life. It’s gone well, the ball has not been dropped!
At the beginning of the month, I got my Patreon members’ post and parcels out to them. This work usually takes me much of the first week of the month, along with lining up new paper designs for them and a poll to choose the next activity. I love working over there, arranging fun activities and getting my mail together for everyone.
There were new blog posts and then new videos every Wednesday for my YouTube channel.
It’s been good to see the channel steadily grow, as for those of you who have been reading these for a while will know, it had a couple of slow starts.
YouTube was always the last area I would prioritise, whereas it now feels like a normal part of my weekly routine.
We have seen new Bring Back Paper members come from YouTube and it’s a fun platform to be a part of.
My newsletters have continued to go out with Flodesk, my newsletter provider. They go out every Friday lunchtime (UK time) and share the latest posts, videos, details of all activities running and there’s usually some extra inspiration in there too. If you want to ensure you don’t miss any new content, old favourites and the latest activities and products, do ensure you’re signed up to that.
I have seen Bring Back Paper continue to grow and new followers seem to come from lots of different places now – Pinterest, YouTube, Facebook, recommendations, Twitter and so on.
The Bring Back Paper Facebook group has continued to grow, we are now at 1815 members over there and there’s always lots of papery chat going on in there. It’s free to join, just search it up and join us.
I have not adding anything new to my Etsy store, but I have been working on some new products, so I am looking forward to continuing that work next month.
This coming week, before the week winds up, I want to get some more content scheduled in and get ahead with my members’ mail. Fingers crossed all goes to plan!
Plans for next month
Next month, I need to get back to my routines and keep that blog and YouTube content coming.
As always, I will be getting happy mail to my Patrons and arranging activities and paper for them, and then running the Bring Back Paper activity for the month.
I need to then jump back into SEO and get as much of that done as I can. Before the month comes to a close, I’ll have the kids home and off school again so I need to make the time that I have available count.
What are your thoughts on my activities and plans?
