Sorry for my recent silence. I’ve had a wonderful and busy couple of weeks. My last day at my full-time job was on Friday, May 27, and then my husband and I flew away to tropical paradise the next day! We returned last Thursday and have been cuddling our babies and recovering from being away – which includes, as usual, laundry, dishes, laundry, weeding, mopping, laundry. You get the picture – mostly a lot of laundry!
Leading up to our trip, I spent a lot of time thinking about my next steps with this little blog. I’ve had so many blogs throughout the years and nothing really stuck – so I’ve been brainstorming ways to make my blog more manageable and fun! I always go all in or nothing – I will post every day or not at all. For now, I will focus on 3 posts a week – which is much more manageable. I started this blog because I wanted to be a better reader and stronger writer – that doesn’t mean that I have to blog every day to reach those goals!
Another goal that I set is to be more laid back and more genuine in my posts – because this blog is still so new, I feel like I’ve been a bit stilted and have been holding back. It’s difficult because I only get little spurts of writing time with two babies running around, so I just try to get the basics out and then hit PUBLISH. My thought is that now that I’m working only part-time, there will be more time to put into this!
And my third goal is to READ MORE! Later this week I will fill you in on the reading that I did while we were away – it was super incredible – and I hope that I can find a way to replicate that on a smaller scale now that I’m home!
In a nutshell, my three major revised goals:
- Plan to blog less often, shooting for three times a week.
- Plan to write more meaningfully.
- Read as often as possible!
Sounds like paradise, right? 😉
