Hi camp friends,
If you follow me on social media you would have seen me post about this already, but I thought I’d share a little more info about it here. I am just so proud and excited about this project. And if you don’t follow me on social media, this will be brand new information! Exciting! Also, let’s be friends, all of my social media links are on the sidebar. –>
How Patchwork Marketplace Came To Be
Ok, so if you’ve been around these parts before you may have seen this post by Curt Jackson in my “Path” series. And also this post about how exciting it is to work with new people in blog land and in camping. Well, once Curt and I chatted a bit, wrote for each other’s blogs we decided that we wanted to work on another project together. We brainstormed a little bit, designed some (awesome) t-shirts, wrote a few fun quizzes and other posts but we were still looking for a bigger project to work on.
Then he mentioned that he always thought it would be neat to have a site similar to the ones available for teachers but for camp and recreation professionals.
Cue record scratch.
Hold the presses.
That’s freakin’ brilliant!
I said, “umm, YEAH!” so we put all of our resources into creating Patchwork Marketplace.
And I’m super excited about it.
Then we came up with the name Patchwork because it sort of encompassed all of the things we were trying to accomplish with the marketplace. There’s an explanation on the site, I’ll like to it as soon as it’s available to the public. (If you join our beta test, you can have assess now. More about that at the bottom)
Collaboration friends, it’s where it’s at!
