Hello Backstagers. It’s been a while since we had an official catch-up, and since I took the liberty of splashing my family album all over last week’s posts, I thought we were in need of a little SMP love. And a look at all the things we’ve been doing behind the scenes lately! Although it’s a bit of a brag fest, it’s a great way for you to dive into the SMP brand a bit further…not to mention a good way to keep track of where we’ve been and where we’re goin’.
Okay, so here goes nothing. Living the Dream recently featured yours truly with an interview on how I got started and words of wisdom, the New York Times wrote a piece on elopements, mentioning SMP and our favorite elopement to date. And we have fun features on Etsy, on Bebe’s new blog and we’re now contributing to both SheKnows and TresSugar!
In other news, we did a guest blog over on Glamour.com all about the 5 most inspiring weddings we’re currently loving. We were also featured on Shape.com a couple of weeks ago with an interview about all things SMP. It was a great experience and I’m hoping that we can do a Shape wedding collaboration. I for one would LOVE to do a tailored bridal bootcamp for our readers! What do you think? Would you jump on the get-in-shape train with me?
What else? We spotted our names in Mashables 21 Must-Follow Pinners and in 7 Tips for Planning a Wedding on Pinterest…which is kind of awesome. We are in the process of working out a new logo, a new site look, a few other fun adventures that we’re keeping mum on for the time being. We’re prepping for Engage in Las Vegas, for a fun bridal event in Toronto, putting the finishing touches on our book and getting ready to escape the kiddos for one night to celebrate my 33rd birthday coming up in just a couple of weeks.
We’re also wanting to start developing Backstage into a really great resource for you and want to get the wheels turning. Here are some topics that we’d love to cover but we would also like to hear from you and what types of things you would like to hear more about…
- Working with Virtual Employees: Tips and Tools
- Cultivating Loyalty and Love within Your Company
- Behind the Scenes: Editor’s Desks
- Recipes for this Busy Mom
- Behind the Scenes: Our New Offices
- Audrey’s 3rd Birthday, 7 months late
- Tips for Starting Your Own Creative Business: The Early Stages
Again, we would loooooove to hear more from you and understand more about the type of content you want to read about. When it comes to business and babies, chances are we’ve been there or are currently experiencing it. And we’re happy to share what we’ve learned, what we’re hoping to learn and what we wish we knew. Any and all topics welcome!
