What are you up to currently? Have you made any goal for this month?


It's that time of year again! Time for another blogger gift swap.  The gift swap is a great way to get to know other bloggers and hopefully, create a blogging bestie that you can turn to for inspiration or motivation.  I've hosted two other gift swaps, one at Christmas and on at Valentine's Day.  This year's swap is being hosted by the admins at Show Your Blog Love, which are Sami writer at Be Mindful You're Creative , Jasmine writer at Jasmine Maria, Sarah from Sarah Emily Blogs, and myself.  Show Your Blog Love is an online Facebook support community for bloggers, writers, and social media influencers. This group is a great place to meet other bloggers, share your work in our daily threads, and seek knowledge, advice and motivation from others. 
Here are the requirements:
1.)  Complete this short form by Saturday, August 6! 
2.)  You’ll receive an email from one of the admins by Monday, August 8.
3.)  Reach out to your partner and get to know them.
4.)  Ask questions such as:
-What their favorite color is?
-Favorite fall treat is?
-Favorite thing about fall?
-Do they prefer coffee or tea?
-What their favorite coffee or tea is?
-Follow each other on social media
5.)  Send a $20 package to your partner (not including shipping) by Monday, August 15.
6.) If you are a blogger, come link up your experience with the admins at Show Your Blog Love on Friday, September 1!

If you sign up, please participate, if you can't please let us know. It's not fair for your partner to send a gift and then not receive one back. Please don't ruin it for others. 

Finally, have fun with this swap! It’s a great way to get to know someone new. Be sure to use the hashtag #FallForSYBL


  1. I hope you can find your love for blogging again! Sometimes it can be fun to come up with a series that you really feel passionate gives you something to look forward to posting over and over again.

  2. A trip to St. Augustine would be so great! I love that place.

  3. St. Augustine would be nice, a quick little getaway is always great!

  4. I've been in a blogging slump lately too! They're so hard to get out of but I love blogging so much! Good luck!!
