Thursday Treats: Going Skiing… and to The Farm… and Then Back Over to America-land…

March 7, 2013

I’m heading out tomorrow for a few days, well a week to precise, on a family holiday to the French Alps. And whilst I’m looking forward to unplugging (for the most part), breathing in that fresh mountain air and drinking way to much vino, I do so with a small sense of trepidation. Spending a full seven days in close confines with your entire family (love them as I do) is not something to be entered into lightly. Be sure to follow me on twitter and instagram if obnoxious holiday snaps are your thing or if you want regular updates as to whether we’ve killed each or not…

So here’s the drill. I’m back next Friday but then pretty much right away I’m off to the Photography Farm again. Then as soon as that’s wrapped it’s a quick jaunt up to Birmingham for a certain wedding extravaganza before a short hop over the Atlantic to The US or A for two weeks. Needless to say for the rest of the month I’m going to be blogging on the go, which is both scary and exciting (especially because Gareth has promised me a swanky new laptop!) but means I basically have to take a little break from both Thursday Treats and Business Bites. Keeping up with the wedding and Green Room posts I can do, finding time to scour the interwebs for lots of lovely links for you to browse I can not. So forgive me, but these features will be absent until I’m back on solid ground mid-April…

APRIL?! Where the hell is 2013 going?! Sheesh…

A bonus mini-business bites cos I love y’all so much

When not to touch your business
♥ Fab tips for brands wanting to work with bloggers
♥ Go your own way!
♥ 8 keys to making online connections
♥ Twenty dollars in the mail – so good

The thing I realized early on is people are happy to pay for things that are good. Don’t be afraid to charge for your services. Don’t be afraid to charge for what you produce. If those people who don’t want to pay for it want to complain about it, that’s fine. They don’t have to buy it.”  Jason Fried

Best of the Rest
