GiG Blog Update

Hello everyone!

Wow, it feels like forever since the last time we posted on this blog. We apologize for the absence but if you’ve joined us on Facebook, you know that we’re very much alive and kicking there! There have been changes in the group, including the number of crew members involved due to priorities and other commitments in life. And I thought (as Founder) to keep you in the loop of what will be happening in the next few weeks or months with the blog and on Facebook.

About this blog:

As much as we love posting here and creating amazing events for everyone to join and enjoy, at this point, we’ve decided to put a hold on this until we know exactly how much time the current Crew members (including the Co-moderators) will be able to give since creating content can sometimes become time-consuming. We all have our own blogs that we also try to organize and keep up with and I can totally understand that sometimes, there’s just not enough time in the day. We don’t get paid for what we do here, but we love to share our passion with everyone. That’s why we try to keep the activities going on Facebook instead, as it’s more manageable there. But, it doesn’t mean that we will ditch this blog completely.

My tentative plans that I’ve shared with the active crew and co-moderators are to make improvements here, have a more organized schedule and get worldwide contributors. So far, that’s all I can give for now.

Moving forward:

Launching GiG was a great experience alongside the Crew we had before. But along the way, I also realized that there were changes that had to be made. We are a growing community (800+) and believe me, trying to coordinate and making sure that everyone’s on the same page can become a challenge sometimes, not to mention time difference. LOL.  But it’s been fun and I definitely have no regrets for deciding to launch GiG and welcoming bloggers to join us. I’ve learned a lot from them and I’ve met amazing bloggers and individuals from across the globe. It’s a priceless experience.

During this journey, we’ve had a few crew members who decided to take a different route and left the team, although not the group. However, we still have very active members right now who have been helping me with running the group (especially when I’m not around) and ensuring that certain activities are posted and I simply can’t thank them enough. And we’re very proud to say that because of our supportive and inspiring members, we now have a much more organized and easy-to-follow through system in placed on Facebook!

Our lovely Mari is currently touring the States, Lisa is about to embark on a new job and home, Somdyuti is now at college getting her geek on (LOL) and Caity will be our ‘power GiGer’ in the next coming weeks. So yes, these girls are busy bees right now but whenever they get the chance, you’ll see them hovering around the GiG wall. :-p

And if you ask me what I’m up to?
Little bean and I are about to take the biggest step of our lives, which means I will be offline for quite sometime before the end of this month. I will share more info on my blog separately. And during these weeks, Caity will help out on taking charge on Facebook group to make sure all activities will still run as much as possible. If you can give us a hand, we would totally appreciate it. Just let us know.

Lastly…

For all our lovely followers and supporters here and on Facebook, we would like to say THANK YOU for following this blog and participating in our events, giveaway and fun activities. You’ve made blogging for us even much better!

Please stay tuned.

Kisses

x Donah
