We are so excited to introduce you to year one of our t-shirts for
Life in the Higham House and TheHighamFamily.com!
Why t-shirt? What's the point?
Well, it's simple. We love hosting the family blog and vlog. In the new year, we are hoping to expand both the blog and the vlog. We want to see the blog continue to grow as an encouraging resources for families. We started the blog as a way to share some of the lessons we are learning as parents with other parents. We are raising 5 kids. With the oldest in college and the youngest in third grade, we span the spectrum of personalities, behaviors, responsibilities, experiences, and activities.
Along with our experiences as parents, we value marriage. Like raising kids, keeping our marriage strong and healthy takes work, and we don't always get it right. But we're committed to fighting for our marriage and our family. The blog is the place where we want to come along side other families and marriages to encourage and help; to walk along side and share our story!
The vlog has become another passion of ours. Initially, we started recording and posting videos of our family because we wanted to capture the daily routines and the special moments. Sharing them on YouTube offered the opportunity for our families to see what the kids are up to. But then we started discovering other families who were posting similar videos. These families became a source of possibilities. Not only could we capture the fun moments from family life, but we could create new adventures as a family. That's what we're hoping to do, remember the daily experiences, but also create new adventures that we will one day look back on and laugh and remember
As we step into 2018, we have started asking, what do we want to see happen with both the blog and the vlog? More importantly, we've prayed and asked God, how does He want us to use the blog and the vlog? And we are convinced that we are to continue building a place for families to be supported and encouraged. That means more regular blog posts here on the blog that cover topics for family, marriage, parenting, as well as personal stories, struggles, successes, and failures as we grow in our faith.
As for the vlog, we hope to continue to sharing the story the God is writing for our family. From the daily routines of life to the new adventures and journeys that we're looking forward to in the new year. Likewise, Kids Talk, our web series that Jay does with Asher and Breya, will return to new episodes where together we'll talk about all sorts of fun things with the kids. And, though it was a short run, we have hopes of bringing Parents Talk back. Parents Talk was our web series where Jay and Amy would sit down and talk about topics of marriage, raising kids, family, and eventually questions from viewers.
So as you can see, we have plans for the new year. However, these plans take time and resources. One of the ways we think we can help the blog and the vlog continue is by selling our new family-friendly t-shirts as a way to raise financial support that will go to helping us keep things moving forward. You are already use to seeing ads and product recommendations throughout the blog and the website. Like the t-shirts, these ads and product recommendations generate revenue when they are clicked on or purchased. That revenue will help with the expenses of maintaining the site. Plus, we think it would be pretty cool to see people walking around with our t-shirts on!
