Big Announcement. Women Connect.

I've had this project brewing in my head for months now. Talking to some amazing ladies. Throwing out ideas. Envisioning my hopes for this project.

And now that it has finally coming together... I'm super excited and nervous at the same time. 

Excited? Because I know the potential that this project has. The amount of women that can be connected through this. And the stories that can be shared.
Nervous? Because it means a lot to me. And I hope people will appreciate it the way that I do.
I call it a project because I plan on making this a yearly thing. Because I want as many women connected as possible. Because I have plans for this to be spectacular. 
With life getting busier and busier by the moment, it is hard for me to connect with other bloggers and women out there. I used to have the time to sit for hours and browse through different blogs only to finally find one that I could get lost in. I used to have the desire to search for pregnant women, or mamas around the same age as me just so I had something in common with them. I used to, and I still do.
I get a lot of emails from time to time asking how I found certain blogs. How I connected with certain women, moms out there.  A lot of times its harder than you think. Takes time. Effort. Patience. Things that a lot of us {me included} struggle with. Emails asking to connect women with other women.
So? Share the details? Why, yes, of course...... but, They are SIMPLE!
You write a post that tells us who you are {without you telling us literally who you are}. Tell us more than just the basics. Share with us a story. Open up. Tell us what is meaningful to you. Reel us in. Make us want to stay. Be real. Be raw.  Be you.

Are you a mom? Write about what's on your heart. Something you have learned. Someone who you look up to. Struggles or challenges.
A newlywed? How is married life after all? Do you want to connect with other women going through similar scenario as you?
Loss. Have you lost someone close to you and looking to connect with women who get it. Write about it. Share with us your heart.

The goal of all of us linking up is so that we connect with women similar to us. When you do link up to the post next week you will put in the title how you would like to be distinguished, who you are searching to connect with, what life is throwing at you. 

When is it: Next WEEK! Next Tuesday November 27th! The link up will open up at midnight.
So in the meantime? What do you do? Start your posts! Open up your hearts. Share a couple of pictures. Have it scheduled. Share this with friends. Share this link with all your friends so they come back and link up. The more that join, the more that will be connected. Get excited. And remember to have fun with it!
I cannot wait for next week! Until then? Hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday!
