State of the Podcast August 2017

Hello, my fellow adultlings!

Wow it has been a long summer for me. Thank you to everyone who has been supportive of this summer hiatus I took. Between medical emergencies and a busy schedule, I needed some time to recalibrate and get myself back into gear. So here I am! I am ready to get up and running again!

I will be moving to a once a month schedule. This is going to make the content stronger and also keep me from stretching the idea to thin. I can tackle bigger topics for longer if I have some more time to prepare them. This will be beneficial to everyone, I promise!

I have missed you guys terribly and I cannot wait to just back into it! Please let me know if you have any ideas you would like me to cover! I am going to kick off me big return with a redo of one of my first topics: starting a workout routine.

So I will see you all in September and I look forward to teaching you all how to adult again! YAY!

State of the Podcast March 2017

Hey everyone! Just dropping in to say hello and give you all an update on the podcast. Over the last month there has been some amazing growth and people reaching out to me to tell me about topics and how much they enjoy the show! I think one of my favorite recent tweets was this:

I love being on Twitter because the cruising the hashtag “#adulting” might be my favorite past time. It helps me think of new ideas for episodes! The one I found tonight will be episode 22s topic (episode 21 being the second part of our networking discussion):

So that’s the episode update for the beginning of next month! April 3rd will be How to Network Part 2 and April 10th will be Spring Cleaning! Email me or tweet at me if you have any questions about those topics, I will absolutely read them on the podcast. And speaking of Twitter I did have an idea for bonus episodes! Reading and responding to some of the #adulting tweets. Rapid fire advice, hooray!

Thank you everyone for following along on this awesome journey. Three solid months and still going strong. I look forward to what’s ahead!

Keep on #adulting!

Everything is AWESOME!

I wanted to take this moment to thank everyone who has listened to the podcast so far. These last few weeks have had a big influx of listeners and I couldn’t be happier! I love imparting wisdom (and interviewing people with way more wisdom that I have…) so it warms my heart to see the message getting through!

I have a few interviews with people coming up that I am really excited about! Some include networking, meal prep, and social work. I am covering it all!! If you have any questions be sure to email me some and I will get them answered, I promise!

I did get a new shiny Zoom H5 so I can do better interviews with people one on one! Look forward to me accosting people on the street for their opinions on #adulting.

To wrap up can I beg a favor? You can even choose which you would like to do! If you have listened to the podcast (and liked it I suppose), could you throw me a review on iTunes OR like the Facebook fan page for the podcast? This helps my visibility!

Again, you guys are the best. And I will go all Trump on this and say I have the best listeners in the world. There isn’t a better bunch of listeners ever! Period. I checked. Top men have told me. Top. Men.

A quick thank you

I wanted to thank all the people sending emails, retweeting, and (most importantly) listening to my podcast.

I’m so glad for positive response I’ve received for the episodes so far! Some great episodes are lined up and I think you will all really love them.

Mini challenge: Tweet or email someone about something of theirs you enjoy. Could be a friend’s art, a stranger’s YouTube page, or your mom’s Etsy page. Share their Facebook post about an upcoming gig, even if you don’t know them that well. It’s an awesome good deed and is something I don’t think enough people do. It’s quick and easy, but also makes someone’s day.

Have a great Thursday everyone! You guys rock!

Brrrr! Baby it sure is cooooold out there!

Hey adultlings! I hope your new year is off to a great start! This weekend is a cold one for some many of us but don’t let that keep you from continuing with your resolutions. If you are trying to work out more, the gym is usually less inhabited because people are cozy in their homes. Be a beast and get out there any way! I know it is also hard to keep to that diet while you sit at home and want to snack or fill up on comfort food. Don’t make yourself miserable, but also don’t use the weather as an excuse to slack off this weekend!

I know you are all doing awesome! I just wanted to pop in and tell you I believe in you!

Make sure you are subscribed to the podcast so you don’t miss the newest episodes!

Gift Idea: Homemade Jars of Goodies

If you are looking for a way to save money while gift giving but you also want to make the gift heartfelt, making presents is the best solution. I know when I used to think of “homemade gifts” I envisioned popsicle stick cabins and macaroni frames. Laaaaaame. But then I discovered the joys of dry mix foods in jars! With a little work you can give the gift of deliciousness!

The basic idea of all jars of dry mixes is layering. The layers give a great visual so your gift really doesn’t even need wrapped!

I did this last year for my family. I made a big batch of cookie mix for my family members. I know my sisters were excited and made theirs immediately. So I am recommending something I can promise gets results!

I have gathered a few links for you to browse. The hot cocoa ones are my favorite. So cruise those links and maybe give the gift of yummy treats for the holidays this year!

Adult Pro Tip: Gift Wrapping Alternative

This holiday season, it is time to wrap gifts! While it isn’t exactly easy to explain wrapping gifts with words and no pictures, I can give you another great option for gift giving:

Bags!

Ah yes, festive holiday bags are the best because, not only do they come with build in handles for optimal travel purposes, but they are also reusable so you are being environmentally friendly!

You’ll need two things: a bag that will comfortably fit the present and tissue paper.

The tissue paper should somewhat match the bag. To do this find a color on the bag and then find tissue paper that is the same color. Easy peasy.

To make your gift bag you’ll want to put a layer of tissue in the bag, then the present, and then another sheet of tissue paper on top of the gift (you don’t want them to be able to peek inside and see the gift!)

There you go. Bagging gifts is the best way around wrapping!


Here are some links if you need some ideas!

Swinging back into the action!

Okay everyone! I am back and ready to restart this beautiful podcast. I took a year long hiatus because, well, lets call it maternity leave. So, that simply means I have way more adulting experience to share with you lovely listeners!

I am working on recording a few new podcasts and getting ready to relaunch, hopefully by the end of the year. If there are any topics you want covered, let me know! I will be sure to give them a whirl!

I am also toying with they idea of a complimentary newsletter to send out once a week, usually in the theme of the latest episode.
