|Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT|
I've been back in the US for a couple of weeks now and am slowly getting used to driving everywhere and happily investigating the new restaurants and shops that have popped up. It's been very nice to catch up with family, relax at the beach, and do some leisurely work on my blog and freelance business. I'm so happy to finally have some free time to read up on marketing and chat with my sister about running small businesses. I've collected the articles I've been reading on a Pinterest board if you'd like to check them out!
This month I was also supposed to go on a tour of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty in NYC - something I was pretty excited about, because despite the numerous times I've been to NYC, I've never taken these tours. Unfortunately, Tinggly did not keep up their end of the agreement (book me the tour in exchange for a post about their company and an honest review of their tour). I'm very disappointed in the way that this company behaved and because of this I've decided to completely re-think and revise my collaboration options and the businesses that I choose to work with in the future. I'm also upset to have introduced you guys to a company that doesn't keep their word and I sincerely apologize about this.
That being said, I'm really excited about the new focus of working with small local businesses - something that I feel strongly about as my parents' owned their own business together for as long as I can remember. If you own a small business and would like to learn more about collaborations options please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
As for July, I'll be frolicking around New England until the middle of the month. I'm hoping to check out some new restaurants, shops, and towns in this area. If you have any tips I'd absolutely love to hear them!
How was your June? What are your plans for July?
