Introducing: New Year, New Blog (+ $200 to West Elm!)

**Hey hey hey! Happy Hump day! Way back in this post I promised you that some big things were in store for this little blog and company. Now presenting, Big Thing #1 (of many). I’m teaming up with one of my best friends (who also just happens to be a blogger), Taylor, to bring you a whole year of guaranteed happiness. WHAT. Guaranteed happiness? Yup. Because first things first: come January 1st, ain’t nobody got time for those “no more chocolate” resolutions. That’s just the devil. Instead, let us introduce: New Year, New Blog. (Fondly dubbed #NYNB).

This year’s about to get blog #turnt.


You’ve made your list and you’ve checked it twice – oh wait, we’re not talking about the big man in red. We’re talking about that dreaded R-word: Resolution. Every January, we all make these ridiculous vows to nix the junk food and hit the gym every morning at 5 am while donating more to charity and learning a new language.

Isn’t it about time you make a resolution that will actually stick? Welcome to New Year, New Blog! New Year, New Blog (#NYNB) is a bi-monthly, year-long, fantastic series devoted to helping bloggers like you find their voice, master social media, rock analytics, improve content and organization, and more. Each month will have a separate theme, with two blog posts chock-full of tips, tricks, interviews with bloggers, and how-to’s. All you have to remember? The first and the third.

On the first and third Friday of the month, NYNB will be happening on Coming Up Roses and A Cup of Tay – and on your blog, too. For the whole year, we’re encouraging all of you fabulous lady bloggers (and male bloggers…mabloggers?) to link up your posts with us as you take our tips, add your own, and watch your blog grow.

NYNB is more than just a blog series, though. We want NYNB to kickstart your 2015 blogging year right. You’ll be networking with new bloggers, learning new tricks of the trade, hearing from seasoned pros, and receiving constructive feedback on your progress. Each month will have a challenge and a blog prompt to make it easy for you to jump right in and join us. AND, if you’re REALLY gung ho on taking your blog to the next level this year, we’ve got an NYNB VIP package with your name on it.

The quick version: For just $18, you’ll get quarterly updates – that’s every 3 months – aggregating all of your learnings into a cute little e-book and adding in some exclusive content worthy of VIPs (we’re talkin’ interviews, more how-to’s, a Facebook group, a package of blogger discount codes for ads, design and consulting services, a kickbutt Pinterest group board and some SURPRISES!).

Here’s the low-down.



So…are you in? We’re too high on cake and wine to swap for carrots and water now, so this year is one for the web. New Year, New Blog…forget that “new you” stuff. We like you just the way you are. So join us, and make 2015 the best blog year yet.

What are you hoping to do to your blog during the new year?

Look out January 2nd for the kickoff post on both Coming Up Roses and A Cup of Tay. Until then, relax, do your holiday baking, and make a resolution worth looking forward to.

And win $200 to West Elm.
