This is just a quick post to let y’all know that I am home from 2 absolutely amazing weeks of vacation in Florida. I’m also heavily jet-lagged while I write this, so try not to judge my word-putting-together-ing skills too hard, ok?
So, yeah, 2 weeks in the Sunshine State, and while I’ve been more than a few times before, this trip was completely different! Not a theme park in sight as we instead filled our time with visiting State Parks, nature reserves, beaches, and many an hour spent in rocking chairs, just taking it all in.
I took a real break from thinking about work, and social media – in fact, I didn’t even take my laptop with me – a vacation first for me! This time away really did have the effect of being very head-clearing – I was able to be much more in-tune with myself and see what I am authentically drawn to, and writing is definitely one of these things. So, now that I’m back from the trip, I’m going to be giving myself the gift of time to spend on writing this blog.
I spent a bit of time trying to really work out the focus of the content I create, and I think I’ve managed to break it down to: “a blog about simple living – using entrepreneurship to help with mental health, and to create a life you love”. It might not be super-catchy, but I think it sums it up for me.
With this new mission-statement in mind, I’ve also come up with a sort of content planner, so that things are nice and easy for people to follow – particularly for readers who may be interested in one or two topics, but not everything I write. So, here’s the plan:
Mondays – posts focused on entrepreneurship, and self-employed life
Wednesdays – posts focused on mental health, or wellness issues
Fridays – posts centered around simple living or minimalism
Sundays – posts about applied minimalism, primarily about my capsule wardrobe.
Tuesdays and Thursdays at the beginning/end of the month: additionally, I’m going to write monthly update posts on each specific area of business that I’m working on. These posts will slot in on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the end of the month, and rolling over into the beginning of the next month.
So there we have my somewhat ambitious content plans for the blog – if you have any specific post requests or questions you’d like me to answer, please feel free to share them in the comments below, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Right, I’m off to eat something and attempt to change out of my pyjamas… or not, jetlag is rough!!
