Hey You Guys...

I don't know if anyone has even noticed that I haven't posted yet this year, but I have not completely dropped off the face of the earth contrary to any scuttlebutt you may or may not have heard.


Really, I'm still here, re-evaluating what I want this year to be with this space and how I want to go about the future of it. Being honest, I just haven't been feeling it on the writing front, I have never considered myself to be a writer freelance or otherwise. You will not see my blog on a list of a top anything and that is okay with me - I'm far from the competitive type. I have a problem getting into a groove or a schedule or a niche for that matter and the only thing I am consistent about is being inconsistent. I'm usually funnier when I'm not really trying to be. As much as I would like to change this, I would also like to stay the same and not conform to any guidelines set by whoever the experts are - I've never been a numbers person. As a pisces, I am always going upstream when the rest of the world is going downstream.



I am working in the background over here making plans some of which include the 31 Days to a Better Blog with the SITS Girls that starts on the 16th and a monthly feature spotlighting some of my favorite bloggers. This already took me outside my comfort zone just by contacting these people I admire some of whom I have met in person in the last year, some I would like to be able to hug (again) in the near future. Either way, I want to make sure you know who they are and a little more about them because they are truly rising stars. (I'm psychic, I know these things..)  I am seriously overwhelmed with the response I have gotten so far!


I can tell you these bloggers will be featured on Wednesdays and the first one for this month will be January 25th!


Don't expect huge changes in my style here but I would like to be more of a consistent blogger for the sake of my readers.  I really do appreciate you all!  My goal is not to be the biggest or the best, just better as time goes by.  I plan to incorporate more video, more music, and the European trips - which I wish I had more video of!  I am excited for the changes to come and hope you will stick around for twhatever this year will bring!

Sometimes taking a step back is exactly what we need to give us clarity. I took two weeks off, and honestly I didn't know what I wanted when I started again. I had trouble writing for a while. I guess these things happen.

I did the 31 DBBB last year and it was great! I learned so much!

You rock lady!! Remember, give them a chance to miss you. Well, we missed you. Can't wait what you have up your coffee stained sleeve.
Oh and btw, the Coffee Chronicles on Fridays has been one of my favorite blogging highlights!!

Love you my co-JJM

I wish I wasn't so lazy and would do the SITS 31 days to a better thing thing.

Twice now, I've blown it.

Just too dang lazy.

I signed up for the 31DBBB too. But....what should I be doing to prepare for it? Now I'm nervous!

Looking forward to going on the journey with you this year.....

Hey Amy, I'm staying, and I'm glad you posted this because sometimes I drop the ball too and have no clue what to post. I'd rather post real content than fluff so I'm trying! Talk to you soon!

I was never in the swing of things so it's hard to get where I haven't been yet. I will be looking back into your archives :)
