Okay, so I know I’ve been away the last few weeks. And I want to assure you that I have started some wonderful blog posts, but haven’t quite finished them or uploaded them yet (obviously). This is just a quick one to let you know that, yes, indeed I am still alive and still active (in mind) on my blog. And also that I have decided to start a new feature. It won’t be on a specific day of the week, just from time to time.
I love reading. Last year I began the year wanting to read a specified number of books which I felt was reasonable and attainable. Sadly, I started off great, but then kinda slumped off. I found myself distracted by nothing but wasted time on stupid Facebook click-it games and binge-watching Netflix. I already log and write reviews (when I feel compelled to do so) on Goodreads. Telling you that I will be sharing them with you will not only provide me with accountability but also a commitment to reading for leisure. And it certainly can do nothing but help with publishing blog posts.
Funny… I just realize I began a book review in 2015 for your pleasure and it is still sitting in the draft queue because something pulled me away from writing it and I never picked up where I left off. Perhaps I shall make that my second review and just leave it “unfinished.” What do you think? Should I share my freshly read but incomplete review or should I re-read it so I can finish my ending thoughts on the book? Please leave me a comment and tell me your thoughts or answer the poll question. Thanks!
This year I have a goal of creating structure in my life. I have a personal coach helping me to stay focused on my short-term goals and my long-term goal to be completed this year. As part of that structure, I bought myself a Passion Planner (which was a Kickstarter success of 2014) and it’s pretty thrilling. I will review this planner /organizer, which is unlike any other planner you’ve used, soon! Although more of a product than a book it will be my first of this series.
