I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog…about blogging in general. Things are about to get cooking…like really hot with freelance work, and I’ve noticed lately that I’ve shoved a few paid projects to the back burner recently so I could focus on this blog and reading your blogs. But I have to make some changes, or else risk losing some actual paid work.
As much as I love reading your stuff, I have SO many to look at now. I want to read them all, I really do, but it’s too much. So I’m trying to follow a schedule of only reading stuff from my google reader Mon/Wed morning and over the weekend when I have time.
I’m going quit my Week in Review posts on Sunday afternoon so I can just focus on writing one post for Monday morning. And I’m going to start combining Link Love/Week in Review for my Friday posts.
I think being on that schedule will keep me more focused on the big rocks in my jar instead of the little ones being scattered all over the place.
Whew! Now that I got that out of the way, here are some highlights of this past week:
-I reached 743 viewers on Jan 1st for my post, 13 Ways to Start the New Year Right. Maybe these are average numbers for some of you, but a HUGE spike for me. That lasted about two days. lol!
-Ran 2x this week (one long & one 20 min interval beach run)
-Did two 45 minute NTC workouts.
-Got jury duty but successfully changed the date to a more convenient time (is it ever convenient?)
-Played beach volleyball for the first time in two months! The shoulder hurt, but not any more than doing absolutely nothing.
-Organized my apartment.
-Had a mellow NYE at a friend’s house watching Return of the Jedi and Eddie Murphy: Delirious.
-Started the initial planning on a trip I might be taking in May! Can’t say what yet.
-Feeling thankful for the support from great friends!
-Meditated every day!
