Scrapbook Obsession: Didn’t Meet My Newsletter Sign-Up Goal But …

I just wanted to write a quick update to my stated goal to reach 200 sign-ups for my Scrapbook Obsession Free Newsletter by Valentine’s Day (02-14-16).

Welllll … I didn’t make it. Almost, but not quite. I have 194 newsletter subscribers. I’m not gonna’ cry; that’s still pretty darn good for a something I started only last fall.

I don’t know if you’re interested but I’m also going to share what else cheered me up: my other social media stats. Since I last updated my social media tracking spreadsheet on 11-09-15 (3 months ago), everything has increased:

Blog Followers: 704 to 713, increase of 9
Bloglovin’ Followers: 142 to 155, increase of 13
Newsletter Sign-Ups: 162 to 194, increase of 32
Periscope Followers: 383 to 746, increase of 363!
Twitter Followers: 222 to 252, increase of 30
Pinterest Followers: 856 to 952, increase of 96
Facebook Page Likes: 105 to 231, increase of 126
Facebook Group Members: 57 to 85, increase of 28

I even had increases in Twitter (+28) and Pinterest (+15) Followers for my sister site OrganizedScrapbooking.com which I haven’t been able to spend ANY time on.

All that made me feel pretty good, and okay about not reaching my newsletter sign-up goal. I’m making progress in building the ScrapbookObsession.com site, getting the word out, and letting scrapbookers know I’m here.

There are all kinds of things bloggers do to increase their blog and social media followers, including using scheduling programs, joining group Pin boards, guest blogging, etc. – all of which I’d be doing if I had time, LOL. But all of THIS growth has been “organic reach” – except for anyone who came my way because of a 7-day Facebook ad I ran in January for my Simplify Your Scrapbook Space class.

I know you guys share my posts, mention my site on message boards, and more. I’m so grateful! That’s my favorite way to get new readers because it means you believe in this site and our community here. Thank you so much!

Have a great day!

Simplify Your Scrapbook Space: Starts Today! Want to See What You Can Accomplish?

I’m so excited!! My online scrapbooking class starts TODAY!!

Oh, how the ‘obsessive’ in me loves that it starts on a Monday AND on the first of the month. I just feel better and my mind is more organized when timing works out that way. It’s why all my diets start on a Monday, LOL. Don’t laugh. You know you do it, too ;)

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I’ve fought the Scrapbooking Organization Monster several times. Oh, for instance, HERE and HERE. Each time, I thought I’d conquered him. I felt so smug and beyond reproach. “Yep! I’m now an organized scrapbooker! I got things in order and will never be disorganized again. I’m super duper cool. You all wish you were me.”

Yet each and every time, weeks or months later, I was practically right back where I started. That’s why I’m so glad I found the method that finally worked and want to share it with you SO BADLY that I created a class around it. Yeah, the one I mentioned above that starts today :)

Just so you know that I’m for reals, here are some of my before and after photos:

You have to join the class to see more and to hear how I accomplished and organized it all. #SorryNotSorry

But seriously, we’re gonna’ go WAY into depth on our scrapbook spaces. I’m talking nitty gritty, people! We’re going to share our Before and Afters to inspire each other and cheer each other on.

There will be written materials you can keep forever and resources galore. Not to mention the fun. ‘Cuz you know I like to laugh, sister!

I still can’t believe I got rid of all these!

I’m keeping it a small group but there are a few spaces left, if you’d care to join us. Just do it today so you don’t get behind on the “having fun together” part.

CHECK IT OUT HERE

Happy Organizing!

Layout a Day LOAD 216 (It’s the Last One!) + SYSS + Facebook Chat Tonight

I’ve talked over the years about what a great experience this is: Layout a Day – this year known as “LOAD 216” (for February 2016).

I just realized from her e-mail that this will be the last LOAD Lain is leading!! {<- Yes, I just did that}.

More from Lain:

We’re kicking off February 1 (TOMORROW), and we’re scrapbooking a layout every day for the month of February.

Many of our LOADsters say that life is so busy, LOAD is the one time a year they can count on getting their scrap on. So if you’re ready to pick up the tape runner again, join us. You can save $15 if you register by midnight tonight – no coupon needed!‚Äč

I’ve done LOAD in the past and it was amazing! But I won’t be able to join in this last time because . . . I’ll be teaching MY online class, “Simplify Your Scrapbook Space: Declutter and Organize So You Can Scrapbook Stress-Free” from February to April.

SIGN UP!

We’ll tackle one part of your scrapbooking area each week so that, by the time Spring comes, you’ll be ready to attack some layouts and projects. Would love to have you join us! I’m capping it at a small group because I really want to provide individualized attention. Spaces are running out and we start tomorrow!

So whether you’re ready to power through some layouts now with LOAD 216 or you need to get your space in order first with Simplify Your Scrapbook Space, you’re good to go.

Happy Sunday!

PS: I’m having an impromptu chat in the Scrapbook Obsession Secret Facebook Group this evening. If you’re not part of the group yet, we’d love to have you! Just sign up for my Free Newsletter in the top right sidebar and I’ll add you to the group pronto. Then we can chat tonight!
