What a Difference a Year Makes
I like to take a step back every once in awhile and really look at how I’m spending my time and think about what I’ve accomplished. It’s hard to believe that in just over a week it will be exactly one year since I started this blog. Although I’m a few posts shy of one a week, it still comes out to 47 blog posts counting this one. Next week will mark my 48th post.
Over the past year I’ve done several book reviews, started (and gotten off track of) my podcast, created a YouTube video to represent how I see this blog, participated in NaNoWriMo, and entered a writing contest. While I know that the blog is still finding its way (a nice way to say I’m still figuring it all out) I can honestly say that I’m pretty proud of all I’ve accomplished over the last year.
If you’ve been following my past posts you know I feel pretty strongly about each accomplishment, be it larger than life huge or a speck on the radar tiny, are all important and deserve recognition and celebration. That’s because each accomplishment marks a place where you have been and the path you are taking to move forward. Some are the lighthouses that mark the way to save your ship from crashing onto shore, and the others that seem less important are actually the pieces that fuel you to keep going.
I have been trying to really identify where I want to see myself going forward. Things like updating this site, adding more of my own writing, trying to get myself back on track with my book reviews and podcasts. I know I have a few ideas on things I hope to accomplish over the next twelve months, and I look forward to what else the universe decides to throw into the mix. Sometimes the unexpected leads to the most interesting outcomes.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on things that could be done differently, ideas or constructive feedback on my site, or even topics you’d like to hear about going forward.
