Bandwagonbox

Standard

During the month of February I kept seeing some fellow bloggers/ tweeters talking about the bandwagonbox. So the curious monkey inside me asked and now I am apart of this amazing group of lovely ladies.This project was started by @GeeWhiskers, @glamglit, @mmmrska and @tamsw9·The membership has now grown to ten and in April I recieved my 1st box.

So every 2months you are paired with someone and you have to send them a box of goodies. Each box has a theme, the April box was beauty so i had lots of fun putting together a box for GeeWhiskers (www.geewhiskers.com) The box is to the value of between R100 – R150. We have a forum where members posted their likes,dislikes and wishlists.This made shopping much easier. Its such a fab idea of getting a surprise box of goodies.Its also a chance to unleash your creative side and try new products.

The box for June is themed Winter Warmth and I am preparing my box for GlamGlit ( http://glamorousglitter.blogspot.com) My box is almost done just the pretty bits to do.

My April box was done by the amazing GeeWhiskers.The box was indeed a box of treasures. Thank you GeeWhiskers for my gorgeous box and the opportunity to be apart of Bandwagonbox. Here are some pics of my fab box :

Friday morning while getting ready for work, I got the most interesting BBM message from my friend. My friend happens to be the Head of English at the college that I work in. Her request to me was if it would be possible for me to do a little presentation to the staff in her department on Blogging.

I was pretty gobsmacked and delighted of the chance to share some insight into the world of blogging to others. I grabbed my Tablet made some notes and went off to work pretty excited. These staff members didnt know anything about blogging at all so heres what i shared with them :

# Blogging is an online diary which can be accessed anywhere in the world.

# Some blog sites are free to blog on like WordPress and Blogspot.

# Anyone can blog and you can blog about anything.

# On your blog you can upload pics, links to music, videos.

# Blogs have a spellcheck feature.

# Its a form of Social Media which is very popular and linked to Twitter and Facebook.

I then shared my blog with them and some of my favourite blogs :

# http://www.geewhiskers.com

# http://www.suelevy.co.za

# http://glamorousglitter.blogspot.com

# http://stylesociety.co.za

I could see many of them looking confused but interested writing down notes and telling me they would defo read my blog.
I was so happy I could share my love of blogging with them.This got me thinking maybe I should study something in the field of media.
Ciao for now
