What is the #ETHANproject?

The #ETHANproject is a simple summer solution for mom bloggers. It will help you to stay inspired and motivated all summer long!  Wondering who ETHAN is?

ETHAN is an acronym which stands for “Enjoy The Here And Now”.

If you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed at the thought of juggling your children and your blog this summer, the #ETHANproject is for you!  In the #ETHANproject Blogger Kit, we lay out a plan of action for you to follow on your blog for 10-weeks this summer, and each blog post prompt will inspire you to get creative and make memories with your kids.

If you haven’t yet purchased your #ETHANproject Blogger Kit, be sure to do so now by clicking HERE.  It’s just 9.95 and it includes writing prompts, graphics, and social media tips for the 10-week #ETHANproject Summer Challenge.  

Click HERE to see what other bloggers are saying about the #ETHANproject.

By uniting multiple bloggers from many different niches with the same hashtag and blogging schedule, we are increasing the likelihood of cross-traffic between blogs and social media accounts.  This is so exciting to us, but we all have to support one another to make it work!

We all benefit from working together!

We have created this weekly link-up to support our fellow bloggers and to encourage all of our readers to ENJOY the HERE and NOW.   To get the most out of the link up, make an effort to visit the other bloggers sites, comment on their posts, and work to develop a relationship with them.

We are all in this together and we will all benefit from working together.  Although we aren’t “selling” the community support as a benefit of participating, we are certainly hoping that it will be an added bonus to you!  Another great way to get involved with the #ETHANproject is to join our Facebook Group.

#ETHANproject Link-up Guidelines

All bloggers are welcome to share up to 3 posts per week at our link-up.  You do not have to be participating in the #ETHANproject to link-up.

What is most important is that the posts you link to fit the mission of the #ETHANproject which is to “Inspire Moms to STOP and ENJOY the HERE and NOW with their children.”  

Here are some ideas of the types of posts that will do well here:

  • Summer activities for kids
  • Personal stories about motherhood
  • #ETHANproject participating blogger’s weekly posts
  • Posts that fit our weekly theme
  • Family-friendly inspirational posts
  • Hassle-free summer recipes
  • Anything that makes mom’s life more simple
  • homemade products (etsy welcome, but only 1 post per week)

If you link up a post that we do not feel fits the #ETHANproject mission, it will be deleted.

We have a few simple rules that we expect everyone to follow.

  1. This party is hosted by Grounded & Surrounded.  Please follow your hosts on Social Media.  Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest
  2. All linked up posts must fit the mission of the #ETHANproject which is to “Inspire Moms to STOP and ENJOY the HERE and NOW.”
