As we approach 2018, I feel called to shift the content of the blog ever so slightly to more of what I love in the new year. I wrote a few weeks ago about how I feel about blogging right now and my goal for 2018 is to write more consistently. The most important part of writing is to write about something you are passionate about. It’s only normal that if you’ve had a blog for seven years, your passions change!
One of my passions is career and entrepreneurship so you can rest assured that I will always be blogging about business and career stuff here. But, I’m going to be adding more posts about other things I’ve become really passionate about over the last few years which is health, balance and wellness. My personal journey of trying to become a mom has taken me on quite a ride over the last 7 years since I started this blog. Running a business and having a stressful career can really affect your balance and health. I’ve realized this in a big way which is why I want to share more of my health journey with you and how I stay balanced.
I’ve learned that one of the keys to my success is not to work more. But instead, to put more time and focus into my health. My business and career always grows when I am working out and eating healthy because I am happier and more fulfilled.
Note: I’m definitely not perfect so there’s also an accountability component for me as well similar to my networking challenge I started in 2011. I’ve found that in the past, when you blog about a topic, you feel the weight of your readers to be at your best.
I’ll also be letting my creativity out more and blog more about another hidden passion of mine, office fashion. Don’t worry this is not a fashion blog and I have no intentions to model for you. I mean fashion for your office like office supplies, cute journals, planners, books, mugs, water bottles and the cutest pink pens you can find because I’m a sucker for pretty office supplies. Some of our most popular blog posts are about office supplies, books and planners, so I know you are going to love it too.
My content plan really took shape while I took a month off in New Zealand. By the end of the trip, I realized that every time I got to a new city in New Zealand, there were two things I would hunt for:
Cute shops with office supplies, magazines and books.
Health shops with green juices and smoothies.
