An update & reflecting at the end of the year

It’s nearly December, how – I don’t know – but it’s rolling around nonetheless. This time of year is, for many of us, a time to reflect on the year that’s gone, and the year coming up. Never one to turn down a good bit of reflection and evaluation, I have an update for you based on recent reflections.

As you know I’ve been working with creative coach Jen Carrington since October. We’re working on developing my business, and this blog is part of that. The work we’re doing together is really exciting. It’s challenging, involves a lot of diving deep and TONNES of reflection (yay!) all getting me towards finding greater clarity on my business offerings.

Thinking about what 2018 will bring, and how I can develop what I truly want to put out into the world and offer it to you, is really exciting. One of the most exciting things for me right now is that I’ve reached a point where I have enough clarity about my business that I can re-design my website!

You have no idea how excited I am to do this (but here’s a GIF of Kermit to give you an idea)

I’ve been wanting to re-design this site for months, but wanted to wait until I knew what I wanted to offer with it.

Something I’ve been thinking about for a while is how often I publish new posts on this blog. If you’ve been with me since the start you’ll know I began posting everyday, and realised that wasn’t sustainable. I then went to two posts a week, dropped to one and have been back at two again for a while. But I did all of this without really deciding I was going to do it, or letting any of my readers know (sorry!). So now I am deciding I will be publishing new posts once a week, every Wednesday.

Consciously reducing my posting schedule will give me more time to focus on developing the business, and doing things like my website re-design. It’ll allow me to regularly update my readers and offer well thought out content that I hope will be useful to you.

So that’s my update, and I guess a message I want to share as part of this is that it’s okay to drop things. It’s good, and healthy, for us to acknowledge our limitations, and where our energy is best spent. This is something I worked on with my ‘Effort where it matters’ Happiness Project resolution, so I guess it rubbed off!

More updates, thoughts and final Happiness Project resolutions (whaaaat?! STILL can’t believe 2017 is coming to a close) to come soon. In the meantime, let me know what you’re up to and any reflecting you’ve been doing!
