Welcome to this month’s blog progress report.
This has been a funny old month. It started slowly with the bank holidays here so I lost a few days working at the beginning, but then the pace definitely picked up and it’s been a very productive month.

At the beginning of the month, I got my Patreon members’ post and parcels out to them.
I enjoyed packaging up stationery bundles and then I had fun working on a nature theme for my happy mail this month.
The mail is a big part of my Patreon memberships, but then equally there are those members who just love being a part of it so that they can join in with the monthly activities that I run over there.
These activities are an extra to those that I run here on the blog, and tend to have more specific and varied themes, such as this month’s summer themed swap. I know this one will be fun!
There’s also the monthly writing paper and ongoing pen pal sign up, so Patreon has plenty to keep me busy.
In addition to my Patreon work, I have been arranging the free Bring Back Paper activity this month, and it’s been great to see so many familiar names and then lots of new people joining in with this. Nice to see it’s still popular with long term readers as well as attracting new enthusiastic swappers!
On the subject of YouTube, let me just pause here and say ‘hooray’!
I am still doing it, I am still getting a new video live every Wednesday for my YouTube channel. Every single Wednesday, even those when I am really pressed for time, so it does finally feel like this is a routine that is sticking and working.
Blog posts have been written and 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.
The Bring Back Paper Facebook group has continued to grow, and there’s been a great variety of chats taking place over there this month.
We are now at around 1900 members and it’s a pretty active community. I love dropping by there.
In addition to all of the above, I have been working on a new idea. I have been busy behind the scenes developing and launching a new venture with my brother. This has taken up a fair bit of time this month, as you’d imagine, and we are both very excited about it!
I have mentioned it here, but if you’ve not see what we’ve been up to, do check us out at www.booksandbrewclub.com.
Plans for next month
I need a big push next month to get a lot of work done before the kids break up for the summer holidays.
My plan is to get all of my blog content for July and August written, and to be at least a couple of weeks ahead with my videos.
I do work when the kids are off, but it’s more sporadic and we do have plans over the summer so I need to make the most of my time in July to take the pressure off.
Of course, I will be working on Patreon mail, activities and posts over there, and I will be getting some of this set up ready for August too.
I’ll also be getting the very first Books and Brew Club packages out, can’t wait to do that.
I am hoping for a very productive, exciting and busy July. Wish me luck!
What are your thoughts on my activities and plans?
