TpT Seller Challenge Week 2: Dare to Dream

When I saw the focus of this week's challenge I had to laugh a little.
Last week I was supposed to be updating products, but I got ended up getting distracted by trying to start my blog. So after spending an enormous amount of time on blogging last week, I have another week to continue improving and creating my own blogging style.


More Makeover Madness

I've spent the week working on bringing my store into the social networking age. It's now on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Blogger. Tonight (this last night of the Week 1 Challenge: Makeover Madness) I've worked on updating a couple more products. As long as I'm feeling motivated...

Product Update #2: Attitudes about Learning Poster Set

So last night I officially felt old.

Really old.

Why? Well, I was laying on a picnic blanket in the front yard having my oldest son help me set up an Instagram account.

As he walked me through the process and explained the different features, I had a flashback. I remembered sitting on the couch at my mom's house helping her to set up a Facebook account a few years ago. I remembered all of her questions (that seemed so silly to me at the time). I remember trying to teach her what "liking" and "tagging" and "posting" meant. I looked at my son, working so hard to bring his mom into the digital/social media age, and I couldn't help but laugh!

So, the results from last night?
I officially have an Instagram account for iTeachSTEM! Yay me!

As I spent time this week giving some of my products a much needed "facelift", I felt inspired to create a Facebook page for iTeachSTEM. I'm really hoping to be able to keep up with Facebook, Pinterest, this blog, and creating new resources. Thanks to the #TPTSellersChallenge I'm feeling especially motivated. Just the kick in the pants I needed.

Thanks for reading my random middle of the night musings.


Week 1: Makeover Madness

So many of my early products could use a good facelift, but I chose one of my "summer" products for this challenge. Several years ago I put together cute "goodie bags" for my students. They loved them.



I've actually had my teacher blog set up since LAST summer.
And then life happened...

My goals for THIS summer:
(1) Start posting on my blog
(2) Participate in the TpT Seller Challenge
(3) Finish (and post) at least one full unit bundle - Solar System or Bottle Rockets STEM Challenge
(4) Update product listings to include links to related products
(5) Read TWO books for pleasure*
(6) Take a nap once a week*

Thanks to
for coming up with such a fun way to get me going!
