TABM Updates

It’s been a while since I updated on all that’s going on with The Ameri Brit Mom. I wanted to take a minute and showcase this business that I have been working so hard to cultivate. The Ameri Brit Mom Writing and Editing Services is my passion project and something that brings me joy and a sense of accomplishment. Every comment, like, inquiry, or client means the world to me and so I wanted to take a moment to share what all has been going on behind the scenes.

Monthly Newsletter

The easiest way to remain up-to-date with all things The Ameri Brit Mom is to join the free subscription. When you join, you receive a monthly newsletter with all of the past and upcoming news. There is always an exclusive letter to my readers included in this newsletter and it is a great starting point if you want to support The Ameri Brit Mom, but are unsure what that means.

Patreon

My Patreon page is a place for exclusive content and offers. Members pledge a monthly amount (anywhere from $5-$20) and in return receive access to content that is available in no other platform. As part of The Writing and Editing Services, I offer unique stationery and graphics to patrons as well. Those downloads come free to those who invest in The Ameri Brit Mom on Patreon.

Monthly Short Stories/Essays

Each month, I offer original pieces to my Patreon members. This is included in the price of the monthly pledge. Stories and essays range from current Works in Progress (WIPs) to short works of fiction or poetry. I enjoy adding to my collection each month and receiving feedback and suggestions from members in my community. This is a project that I enjoy putting time into each month and I am always looking for clients to help create portfolios of their own.

Writing and Editing Services

Most of my income comes from providing writing and editing services. Over the summer I worked with half a dozen clients to spruce up their resumes. I have done a couple of thesis paper edits as well. My favorite types of projects include longer pieces. My skills as a reader and writer are most challenged and I feel the most reward after working with a client for several weeks on a piece that has a deep meaning to them.

Quarterly Book Club

I am currently working on my first Quarterly Book Club Discussion Guide release. After many conversations with clients and friends, I have decided to offer resources to members of the reading community. There will be alternations between Bestsellers and YA titles in the lineup and I plan to release one discussion guide per quarter. In the meantime, you can download your own FREE copy of the Guide to Hosting a Book Club.

Open For…

My October calendar is pretty open, and I am hoping to connect with both new and returning clients. If you have a resume, letter, presentation, lesson, essay, or manuscript that you would like to work with me on I am open for new projects. Complete the survey below and I will get back to you on the details and prices for working with The Ameri Brit Mom.

Thank you so much for stopping by to see what all I’ve been up to. The fall is always a busy time, but the work of The Ameri Brit Mom is still ongoing and giving purpose and confidence to the writer within all of us.

May 2022 Bullet Journal Downloads

For the first time in the history of The Ameri Brit Mom, I am offering an exclusive download for bullet journals. I created this month’s layout using Canva. I wanted to give my supporters the opportunity to print their own, easy-to-use calendar for the month of May. If you are interested in downloading your own version of the May 2022 calendar pages (13 total pages), join my Patreon site…and it’s all yours.

Each of the pages below can be printed on your own paper. For my bullet journal, I printed on sticker paper. Additionally, you can adjust the page size for printing in your printer’s settings. On Patreon, you are able to print each page as an image or PDF.

Cover Page

The first page of the calendar bundle is designed according to the color scheme of The Ameri Brit Mom’s logo and brand. It’s a simple layout for recording upcoming appointments and events.

Fitness Tracker

The Fitness Trackers is a one-spot location for all of the physical activities you engage in during the month of May. I like to use one line per day when I track my workouts, and I hate seeing gaps, therefore it pushes me to do some sort of exercise each day.

Diet Tracker

For those who are observing specific diets or who have diet goals, a meal tracker is also provided in this calendar kit. Having to write down the foods that I eat each day cuts back on my mindless snacking and poor diet choices.

Weekly Spread

This weekly calendar spread is a digital version of the one I use each month. On one page, there is a spot to list out specific events or things-to-remember for the week and then I add another page to the spread for tracking habits and tasks.

Interested?

If you are interested in downloading these pages for your own journals or notebooks, check out the terms of my Patreon. For $5, $10, or $20 a month you can support this growing business and receive perks like this without additional charges. You can also support The Ameri Brit Mom by subscribing to the newsletter which is delivered monthly to inbox of my supporters and fans.

Using Canva to Launch My Brand

When I launched The Ameri Brit Mom Writing and Editing Services in January I had a vision of a brand that communicated my ideals in the simplest way possible. At first, that meant designing a logo that matched the aesthetic of what I do as well as fit into my minimalist lifestyle. I used Fiverr to create my logo and I am so pleased with the work from my cooperating artist:

Once I owned the rights to my logo in various formats, I sought out an app that would allow me to use this image to create social media posts, photos for my blog, business cards and merchandise for my clients. I looked at several different options, but settled with using Canva for a number of reasons:

Why I Chose Canva For My Brand…

Canva offers the ability to easily create many different projects using templates. I use a FREE version of Canva, and am so far pleased with the FREE options. However, if you want to have access to more templates and elements you can upgrade to a premium account. For now, I am able to serve my needs using the FREE account.

With Canva you have the options to create video, Instagram posts, Facebook posts, logos, Facebook covers, flyers, cards, business cards, social media stories, presentations, photo collages, banners, resumes, Youtube thumbnails, invitations, desktop backgrounds, postcards, menus, stickers, brochures and more.

You can also print your designs from your own workspace OR you can opt to pay for Canva to print and mail your work directly to you. Right now, I am offering several FREEBIES that I created on Canva for those who join my Patreon page.

For $5, $10, or $20 a month, you can support the creative work of The Ameri Brit Mom and The Ameri Brit Mom Writing and Editing Services. In return for your monthly payment, you will receive access to exclusive content (pictures, templates, videos, downloads, etc.), FREEBIES, and surveys. If you join today at any level of membership, you can download your own copy of this super cute and inspirational bookmark:

I’m really excited about some projects coming soon to the blog that I used Canva to produce. For now, I will leave you with that hint of mystery and a super cute client testimonial that I designed using Canva:
