For the past two years I have put together a Summer Fun Guide for my church’s women’s group (with the help of two wonderful women — thank you Cheryl, and Jami — as well as content input from lots of other women) and we have circulated it via a Word document in print and email. It has been unbelievable to all of us how far and wide this document has circulated, as people I know tell me about how they received it from the sister of a neighbor of a friend of a cousin of friend of a someone who belongs to their pool. Never underestimate the power of the Mommy Network!
This year, I have put it up on the blog, as a page rather than a single post, so it’s easier to find — if you look at the top of the screen, you’ll see tabbed pages, and there is a tab that says Summer Fun Guide — so even after this post falls off the page, you’ll always be able to find it. Here’s a link as well. By putting it online, I’m able to update it as I find new things throughout the summer. AND you can add comments if you know of new things!
It takes a lot of work to put this together, and it is a true labor of love. I ask just two favors of you: please forward it on to your friends, and please leave a comment if you enjoyed it. Comments help me know it’s worth doing and comments are the “currency” of the blog world when I try to look for sponsors or partners or later down the line, advertisers. It’s a tangible way for the outside world to see people are actually reading this stuff! ; )
I will try to put the Fall Fun Guide (last year was the first year) online as well when that rolls out.
Enjoy! Spread the word!
