Update 2/11/22Promises fulfilled! I have published a guide for creating a Google Business Profile, and have updated the Rank Trackers.
Hello there, Scouters!
You’ve likely noticed the posts have slowed WAY down in the last several months. In fact, they’ve come to a screeching halt. I’m glad to report that this wasn’t because of something negative, or that I’d lost my steam. In fact, it’s very much the opposite.
This summer, I excitedly created a contracting business and accepted a wonderful job with my local Council managing their digital media. I’m working on websites, social media, event scheduling, and even serve on a rebranding committee to help remind the community that local Scouting is a safe program for our youth. It’s been a dream come true, and I feel most deeply grateful for an opportunity to serve Scouting in a new way.
Just last week, I had the opportunity to join the John Reid Show, a local morning radio program, to tell all of Central Virginia just how much I love and trust Scouting! Listen in by visiting my Facebook page at @LookWiderStill.
That being said, being gainfully employed and working long hours makes blogging tough to squeeze in. You simply do NOT want my musings from 6:30 in the evening when I’m trying to talk to my kids and make dinner with one hand while folding laundry with the other. THAT Rebekah is a hot mess. She can’t teach you anything except, maybe, how to use a fork to put your hair in a bun.
I’ve also transitioned into the role of Pack Committee Chairperson, which is another great joy and another opportunity to pitch in. It’s interesting seeing a unit from pretty much every position at this point. Are you a PCC? What do you love about it? What do you find is difficult?
As we inch closer to spring, we’re going to hit the May 31st deadline on many Cub Scout Rank adventures, and I’m getting to work on updating several posts that include the retiring adventures. Please keep your eyes peeled, especially on the Cub Scouts: Rank Tracking Sheets, for updates.
I’m also working on a tutorial for setting up your unit website with a Google Business Profile to help boost traffic and accept reviews.
Thank you for continuing to support Look Wider Still and for all of the traffic in the last few months! You guys are amazing and I’m grateful that you find anything I have to offer interesting or helpful in any way. I look forward to getting back to cheerful service to all of you.
Yours in Scouting,
