Welcome to day three of the Createyou86 May A-Z Blog Challenge!
2014 into 2015 was a huge whirlwind for me. I moved 3,000 miles from everything I knew to start a new life with my now fiancé. In my transition I discovered the planning community on Instagram, and YouTube. Planning gave me new direction. I was suddenly writing important things down, and then came the decorating, washi tape, post-its, paperclips, and stickers. This lead to blogging and blogging about my new love for planning.
Soon came my need for more. Not just comments, and likes on Instagram, but people with whom I could discuss my everyday wins, and fails in the planning and blogging world. I also wanted to connect on a more personal level with people who shared my new passion.
Soon I needed more.
I created the Createyou86 Planning and Blogging Mastermind Group on Facebook. This was my idea for a small collective of people that I could learn to call my friends who had similar loves of planning and blogging. Although this is a closed group I found a bunch of great people to share with, and who share amazing content, questions, inspiration, and are always encouraging each other to be better at their craft. Of course we all have those BLAH days, when the blog isn't working right or we fall off the blogging bandwagon, or our planner stops being effective and the like. However, this little family has helped my blogging grow, and open me up to sharing my ideas with a select group who I know will tell me the truth regardless of what I think.
This experience has helped me build so Much character over the past year (this week is the end of my first official full year of using a paper planner!!!!). I am looking forward to possibly meeting one of these groupmates in NYC this month, and doing a sort of blogger meet-up! I am also looking forward to many years to come with this group, learning, and growing with them!
Thank you CP&BMG!
