Blog Progress Report January 2023

Welcome to this month’s blog progress report.

We’re at the end of January, which always seems to be the longest month of the year to me!

I didn’t share one of these last month, so it’s been a while, let me share what I’ve been up to….

As always, I started the month focusing on my Patreon memberships.

This was a nice way to get back to work after the holidays. It’s fun putting parcels together and writing to members. 

After I got everything posted, I worked on the printables and poll for the memberships.

Every month, members receive a writing paper, poster and another printable of some kind.

There’s also always an activity running for people to opt in to, so I got the voting for that set up.

I love working on Patreon. I appreciate every single member over there showing their support for #bringbackpaper. It’s great to design and arrange things for them.

Patreon all set, I got back into writing content and the blog has had two posts a week going up as usual.

I was also fortunate to have an old post get a fair bit of interest this month, and it’s always exciting to see that happen.

I’ve been keeping up with my YouTube schedule and getting a new papery video out each week, on Wednesdays. 

I am finding that I am enjoying YouTube more and more, and seeing more people finding #bringbackpaper that way which is great.

As always, my newsletters have been going out with Flodesk, every week. 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 organised this month’s Bring Back Paper activity, the stationery swap, and the Bring Back Paper Facebook group has continued to grow. We’ve had several new member requests daily, it’s lovely to grow a papery community.

With all of the content, memberships and newsletters running smoothly, my main focus has then been on my Etsy store, filled with pen pal printables.

I’ve added The Ultimate Pen Pal Pack to my store, and I love it!

I have then been working on several other printables, based on things you’ve asked for, so watch this space for those coming into the store soon. 

Plans for next month

February is upon us, and my diary is looking busy.

Allowing for the kids being off school for a week next month, I am cramming as much as I can in to my days!

The plan will be to work on Patreon later this week, and then to spend next week writing and filming and getting everything scheduled in.

I should then have a handful of days available for my Etsy work. That will be the priority after I’ve got all of the usual things done. That’s the plan anyway!

What are your thoughts on my activities and plans?
