You may have seen all the excitement last week on social media about the #NWMeet event in Liverpool, and I was lucky enough to att...
Girl Gang: All The Full Details
Thursday, 26 November 2015
That's pretty much my response to my recent blog post about wanting to start a #TheGirlGang ! I never in a million years expected it to get such a huge response so quickly, and with such opportunities. I felt I HAD to get things rolling quickly, to keep up with it, and that I have to do this second post so that I have one full complete post with ALL the details you guys will need.
Okay so if you haven't already, go and read this post, as it'll explain the premise behind this idea. I want to create a special part of the blogging community; that will look out for each other, support and send encouragement wherever we can. Spreading some real joy throughout the blogging world.
So what specific things will happen with the Girl Gang?
I will share a newsletter updating you all on giveaways, creative challenges, showing love to specific members (all about that blog love!), scheduling Twitter chats, possible future events, merchandise (yes I'm going to make sure we have badges, patches or something pretty as a token!) and EVEN A BLOG AWARD. Yes that's right, I'm teaming up with Hayley who has kindly allowed a new award for 2016 to be added to the categories - BEST GIRL GANG MEMBER. And the extra amazing part? I get to choose the winner. It'll be open to absolutely anyone, whether a professional blogger, or a brand new blogger! Old/young/beauty/fashion/lifestyle/creative/travel - whatever! It doesn't matter. What does matter is their encouragement and support throughout the blogging community. I'll be looking for people who are always spreading good vibes, and who uphold the Girl Gang message!
So who can join?
Anyone! Girls, boys, whatever gender you identify with is always welcome!
I only ask that you share the button provided in some way if possible (sidebars on blogs are a great way to do this!), and you try to help me make this gang a POSITIVE one! We're all here to support each other.
How to join?
1. Use the button, if you wish!
Copy and paste the code in the box, anywhere you'd like to display it on your blog (I'm generally assuming you'll know how to add HTML in).
It will never be used to spam your inbox. We all get enough of that, am I right?
The newsletter will be sent out on the 1st of every month.
And finally, shouldn't we start a Twitter chat for this? It just seems right. We've already began using the #TheGirlGang hashtag which I'm so happy about - and I hope you guys continue to use it! For anything and everything positive. But a chat will be a scheduled place for us to really get to know each other more, and spread a message of encouragement and kindness.
So the first Twitter chat will be THIS MONDAY (30th Nov) AT 6:00PM and will last one hour using the #TheGirlGang hashtag.
There are plenty of chats out there, and it's always hard to find a space that suits everyone without butting in on the time of another chat. So I've tried my very best to organise a time that works for me, and is hopefully convenient for you guys too. It will be every week, same day and time, and will cover a range of topics that I aim to make as wonderful and different as possible. It will have a huge range of topics discussed from week to week, as I think we'll all find that way more fun!
This Monday? We're talking 'growing up' :) (With a bit of a twist...)
So that's it guys, I think I've waffled on for long enough. Sign up below, get involved with the hashtag, pop the button on your blog and spread joy through the community!
I already gave giveaways and a blogger appreciation challenge planned. Make sure you're ready!
If this much has been achieved and put together after one day, imagine what we can do together in the future... #TheGirlGang for life.
