BIGS&LITTLES

What is Bigs & Littles?
This is a partnering of bloggers to teach, to learn and to grow that lasts two months. In the Bigs & Littles Blogging Network big & little bloggers are matched together. Each of us regardless of size or experience has something we can give back to others. Throughout this program you will have the ability to build a new friendship, share experiences, teach, and learn.  We know that sometimes in the beginning days of our blogs we were frustrated, even sometimes now we just need a little blogging advice. We just felt that sometimes we were at a lost, with no one to help us understand  how blogging worked. This is something that we feel never changes, yes our blogs have grown tremendously, but with that comes a whole new set of issues that arise.

Have you ever felt the same? Well we can tell you that sometimes asking another blogger questions and advice can be quite frustrating and intimidating. Well if you are looking for a way to meet someone to share advice and just someone to lean on through your blogging experience, then this may be the perfect program for you.

Want help designing our blog, learning how to grow your blog, or just some general advice?  Then we suggest that you take a moment to contemplate this program!

Want to sign up?

If you are interested in being paired up with one of our lovely Bigs, use the sign up sheet  here.  Sign ups for Littles will be open through August 28th, and then pairings will be announced on September 1sand the program will begin!

Bigs & Littles Blogging Network: Big Signup!

It’s that time again!  Time for the Bigs & Littles Blogging Network! Once again, I am bringing in Christine to help me. Last time we revamped Bigs & Littles Blogging Network. We made changes that impacted sign up that we feel really made a positive difference in this program. You can see more details on this below.

Recent Changes:

In the past, we have had far more Littles sign up than Bigs, which created some issues.  So this time we are separating the sign ups…Bigs first, and then Littles.  The amount of Littles that are allowed to sign up will be determined by how many Bigs sign up. Becoming a Big will be based partly on your social media following, but it is not a numbers game – don’t be afraid that your numbers are too small to sign up!  You can read more about becoming a big here.

We are really hoping to get a large number of Bigs signed up so that we can have a bunch of Littles, so share the sign up sheet with anybody you think would make a good Big!  The Big sign ups will be open today through August 21st, and we will send emails out announcing Bigs on August 24th.

After that, Littles sign ups will begin.  If for any reason you are not chosen to be a Big (or if you don’t want to be a Big), you can of course sign up to be a Little, and be paired with a Big!  The Little sign ups will go from August 24th to August 28th.  We will then announce pairings on September 1sand the program will begin!

We are very excited to try something a little bit different this round, and we hope that it will make everything go a little more smoothly and enjoyably for everybody!

The Bigs & Littles this time flew by for sure! Christine and I made some changes to the way this program is run to hope get everyone a better experience. I hope that each of you found the changes improved this program and I know we would love your feedback!

Meet Camille!

Camille blogs over at Satarah’s Song! We actually have a bunch in common considering her Political Science degree, shopping addiction, and love for all things beauty. During this round of Bigs & Littles switching from Blogger to WordPress dominated our conversations. Being that I just switching a few months back I was able to provide Camille with the pros and cons and also resources for blogging.

She is so sweet and an amazing blogger! I highly recommend if you are looking to read a new fantastic blog then you check her blog out! I know I have so enjoyed getting to know her and answering her questions throughout this round!

***NEW ABOUT NEXT SIGN UP PERIOD***
We did change the format of this program to have Bigs & Littles Signup at different times. Also the number of available spots for littles was derived from the number of Bigs that signup. This was set to make sure that everyone that wanted to be a Little was able to do so. I personally feel that though this does limit the number of spots available it does help solidify that you will have a better Bigs & Littles Blogging Network experience. This new format seems to work and make the majority of people happy.

Important dates! 
The next signup will be as follows:

  • Sign up for Bigs: August 17- August 21
  • Sign up for Littles: August 24- August 28
  • Partners will be announced by September 1st
  • Link up post on November 2nd

Southern Hope

I can remember the first time I looked at Whitney’s blog I thought it was so pretty, girly and adorable! Don’t believe me just head over and see for yourself! Whitney is super sweet and I found throughout this process that we both strive to be better organized! I was able to share a planner with her that is amazing! Here’s a bit about Whitney “28 years old, I’m the mom of a 10 month old, married 5 years. My husband I met online. I’ve survived a lot, near drowning at the beach and a roof collapse both a year apart from each other. I have rheumatoid arthritis, but that doesn’t keep me from doing what I love! My husband and I dealt with infertility and a miscarriage for 3 years before finally have our healthy, happy boy! I’m super easy going and just like to make friends.” Make sure you also check out this posts! She is super sweet and an amazing blogger who I have enjoyed getting to know! Want to know more? Just click here to read all about Southern Hope!
Bigs & littles rounds seem to come and go way too quickly! I have to say I love meeting new bloggers and find they deal with similar situations that I do in blogland. I think this round was successful in my opinion, I mean I met friends and learned some new things! I love this linkup and even though the next round will not start for a few months, I am super excited to have this experience once again. 
Make sure you link up your Bigs & Littles experience down below! What did you gain from this experience?

 

Bigs & Littles Blogging Network Sign up is now OPEN!

It is now time to sign up for this round of the
 Bigs &
Littles Blogging Network! 
What is Bigs & Littles?
This is a partnering of bloggers to teach, to learn and to grow that lasts two months. In the Bigs & Littles Blogging Network big & little bloggers are matched together. Each of us regardless of size or experience has something we can give back to others.

Want help designing our blog, learning how to grow your blog, or just some general advice then we suggest that you take a moment to contemplate this program!

How it works:

The sign up will run from September 12th- September 19th! Once
the deadline has passed, the process of finding your partner will begin! This
process will take about a week, but depending on the number that sign up it
could take a bit longer or it could take less time. The partner list should be
out by September 23rd
Your Partnership will run for 2 months, at the end of this time you
will need to sign up again to receive a new partner.

**New** When will sign ups occur?
Signups will occur 3 times a year in: January, May, and September

Why you should sign
up?
The idea behind the Bigs & Littles Blogging Network is
for bloggers to teach, learn, and grow from each other. Furthermore, the goal
is to become close with one another and support each other, and at the end of
it all make new friends. Our vision is not only for the Littles to grow their
blogs and learn from their big, but that this process will propel them into
becoming a big themselves. Regardless if you are a big or little, there is
something that we can all bring to the table to help each other.
We also want to note that we suggest that you not focus on
being defined as a big or a little. You fall into one of these categories based
on a variety of things. The idea that everyone could be matched with someone as large of a blogger as The Small Things Blog, while it would be amazing it unfortunately is simply impossible at this time. Our point is take this experience and run with it. Remember that what you put into this experience will be what you get out of it.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us here.
