Our small business has some big changes going on this year and one thing we really want to do is start a proper blog with regular posts. BUT we don't want to just post anything for the sake of posting... we really want to know what you would love to read about.
PLEASE VOTE! I've popped some topics below. It would really help us if you could vote below with any you like from these topics (even if it's all of them, or even to suggest something we might not have thought of).
interesting big bucket list stuff from our travels in the UK and Earth
B. GIFT IDEAS
out of the box ideas for unique gifts or gift-wrapping - not necessarily NATA stuff, just cool ideas
book reviews or monthly book club - only the most interesting/inspiring books for curious adults and young folk
D. SCIENCE NEWS
upcoming astronomical activities, things we've read in the science news world (like the bowhead whale recordings I shared last week)
E. NATA BUSINESS NEWS
things we're currently working on, tips we've picked up along the path of running a small business
F. MAKER INTERVIEWS
quick-fire questions to other small businesses that we love and think you will too
We've set up this mini poll over on our Facebook page but your ongoing comments below will also help us to keep up-to-date on what you'd like to hear about from us.

I have always had a fascination with words. One of my favourite words is 'Palaverous', which basically means: to be wordy, verbose, given to palaver. I have been thinking about my word-love and how there are probably other crazy people out there that love words as much as I do. I shared a fun word definition on our social media pages today; I would like to make this a regular thing with an associated hashtag so you could follow and get involved.
I mentioned in the last blog post that we had started a new tradition in our family of buying rocks as presents for my young nephew, Jack. This idea worked brilliantly; he is now super enthusiastic about rocks and it makes present-buying at Christmas pretty easy really (and fun). His first rock was paired with a big book all about geology so we're sharing that today and we have the junior geologist himself in the studio telling us about his favourite rocks from his growing collection.
Ever since the announcement that I was going to have a nephew, I have been that crazy aunty who goes nuts at Christmas and birthdays. Before he was even born, Jack was the owner of a 3D solar system that lit up and had all the planets properly orbiting around a glowing sun. Every year I challenge myself to find something unexpected; a gift that will inspire him to grow into a cool and interesting person.
