We’re a proper official looking outfit now. I always used to love business cards when I was a kid… if I ever saw any on a desk, I’d rob a whole bunch of them and just mess around with them. In my eyes, they were the epitome of cool and a surefire sign that you have made it. Granted, I was a weird child that found fun in unusual objects, but that doesn’t take away from how excited I am that the guys at Aura Print have kitted us out with these bad boys!
Regular readers of our blog will know that Mr Duxbury is very difficult to please. When I told him that we were getting business cards, he audibly scoffed. People still do that apparently. That was until I unwrapped them. Impressed doesn’t really cover it and I later learned that he nabbed a few to show off to his colleagues at work. It takes quite a lot to impress my husband to that extent, but these guys definitely pulled that off.
It’s March! Spring is officially here – the days are going to get lighter, brighter and more colourful with the changing of the seasons. Awards season is drawing to a close, the build-up to Easter is about to begin and sadly, that means it’s the month where lent is a thing. This month, I’m back with another round-up of blog post ideas for March.
March brings us St Patrick’s Day, International Womens’ Day, Ash Wednesday (and lent!) and of course, Mother’s Day. With so many topics to cover, we’ve got a whole host of different ideas for you to sink your teeth into.
Happy February! We’re in the last month of winter and after this we’re on the uphill climb to summer. I’m here to help you with your blogging this month by throwing 30 blog post ideas for February your way. That’s two more than you need, because some of these will not apply to everyone. I’m super generous yes, I know.
Obviously, with February comes a lot of stuff about Valentine’s Day, so a lot of these post are going to be revolving around it, but there’s also a couple of wintery ones being thrown in there as well as general ideas that you can use (and modify to suit your blog) to make sure February’s a plentiful month for your readers.
A couple of months ago, I did something that I hadn’t done for over three years. I started a new job. I’d become super comfortable in my old place that I’d forgotten how badly you went through the motions when starting someplace new and foreign. Painfully aware of how awkward you are in social situations and trying to prove yourself to your new colleagues is something that simply never gets any easier, regardless of how many times you do it.
The more I thought about it, the more I realise that we as human beings do some ridiculous stuff when trying to impress at a new place. It totally works too – so here are my 10 things you can do to be awesome in your new place of work!
