Not at Problogger 2013

Not At Problogger

Not At Problogger

It’s that time of year again, where my Twitter and Instagram feeds fill with the utter gold that is Problogger and I despair at the fact I’m not there. Again.

*insert crying here*

The pandemonium has already started. People packing, flying, beaching, and taking selfies in quirky elevators. I grieve for the friendships I could’ve forged and real life high-fives I could’ve made. I weep for the un-child-interrupted sleep I may’ve gotten and the cocktails I may’ve would’ve drank.



Then it hit me. I COULD go to Problogger 2013! In puppet form!

So many of my buddies are heading to the sunny Gold Coast, surely one of them could take me with them?

Yes, I’m looking at you…

I’ve even made you a printable Michelle for your conference socialising purposes. Just click the image below and download Mini RW, print her out, do some cutting/sticking, and Vwah-LAH! One very loyal conference buddy! Print lots of them out and have your own following of RW minions!

Take Raising Will to ProBlogger 2013 Finger Puppet

Take Raising Will to ProBlogger 2013

Tweet or Instagram your pictures with Mini RW using the hashtag #sayhellotoRW and the picture I judge to be the best will win a little crafty something from the House of Two Little Crickets.

So what are you waiting for? Get printing!

Cuppa Anyone?

Cuppa Anyone?

We ended up with just shy of 240 cuppas for the month! Congratulations on taking time out for you, even if it was just for a little break. I loved seeing your days play out with a cuppa-in-hand and the insight into all your beautiful cups, pots and jugs. And FOOD! How could I forget the FOOD!

More Cuppa Action!

More Cuppa Action!

Get in on the action via Instagram, Facebook and Twitter by using the hashtag #RWcupaday and feel free to tag @raisingwill if you like. Hope to welcome you into the world of #RWcupaday this September xx

The easiest Photo-a-Day Challenge EVER!

I take a lot of photos, especially on my phone. So you’d think that all the photo-a-day challenges around would be right up my alley. And they are…. until approximately a week in when I forget to take the required picture or I come across something that draws a complete blank in my mind. And then I find myself doing something ESPECIALLY to take its picture for the interwebs………. nup.

On another note – I love coffee. Every day. Multiple times a day. Nom.

Coffee

Coffee – get. in. mah. belleh.

Enter my epiphany this morning. The easiest photo-a-day challenge ever. It only goes for a week (Hallelujah!) and it involves my only regular sanity-keeping device – a cuppa.

There aren’t many moments during the day where serenity can’t be found in a minute at the bottom of a mug/cup/fancy-schmancy glass latte glass/cardboard takeaway cup/shot glass/teapot.

And so I introduce Raising Will’s Cuppa A Day:

RW's Cuppa A Day

Join in with Raising Will’s “Cuppa A Day” Photo Challenge

So, starting Monday  27th May (tomorrow) –  if you’re just like me and finally want to complete a photo-a-day challenge without the inevitable sobbing at never being able to finish one, or you’re a cuppa addict of the tea/coffee/hot chocolate/champagne/hot lemony water variety, then get on board with #RWcuppaaday. Hashtag and post away and I’ll see you on the ‘gram, twitter or facey with your delicious moments of sanity…

And if you HAVE to make a cuppa especially to take a picture… Is that such a bad thing?

Are you a photo-a-day drop-out like me?

Will you be joining in #RWcuppaaday?
