A New Adventure Begins!

For the last 14 months, I have written a blog post every single day – 427 to be exact! It was an awesome experience and I did it for several reasons.

Beach, Coastal Living, Coast, Ocean, Dogs, Walk on the beachFirst, I wanted to learn how to blog. I wanted to find my voice on what to write about so I could build my website for you, my readers. But secondly, I wanted to challenge myself. It started as a commitment to write a post each day for 30 days but grew into something much bigger. And I learned a few things along the way:

-I could make new habits by sticking to a plan. And not just blogging but in other areas of my life too!

-I tried something new! Was I afraid? You bet but I moved forward anyway. I proved to myself that I could try new things and if I succeeded – Yay! If not, I learned a new lesson.

-I put myself out there and though it was intimidating at first, my confidence grew.

-I’ve learned more about writing, grammar, subjects, etc., than ever before (and still learning).

-I finished a challenge and that made me feel so good! I was able to put a “win” on my “Achievements” list in my journal.

-I learned SO MUCH about websites and social media, which is fun for me.

But one of the most important things I’ve learned is what I’m really passionate about and what I want to share with you in future posts, emails and on social media. That’s why the website is getting a new look and I’m making some changes.

First and foremost, my novels will always be a priority. Though publications dates for my future books have been delayed a little bit, I’m writing my new novel and novella – just more slowly at the moment. Right now that self care I’ve been writing about in some of my blog posts is high on my priority list and when I write I’m able to get immersed into another world. This is a stress reduction technique for me.

Next, I’m bringing you my love for journals and planners. I’ve loved blank books, journals, planners, personal growth workbooks, etc., since I was a little girl. I’ll continue with featuring new journal prompts each week but I’m also excited to announce that my next book is actually a journal! It will be a book for you to write in, decorate, use for a daily notebook – whatever! I can’t wait to show you more because it will be a book for you, about you and written by you. I know at the moment this might sound a bit confusing but in a few weeks I’ll be sharing more about this exciting new book.

A future project of mine is a personal planner. As I said before I love planners! It seems I try a new one each time one becomes available. Until my planner project is complete, I’ll be sharing tips about the current planner(s) I use, how to use them, what to put in them, how to decorate them and more. If you’re a planner addict like me stay tuned!

I’m really excited about everything that is going on in my little world and most of all that I get to share it with you! I love writing novels but I also like talking about my other creative pursuits. You’ll probably see some posts about things such as crochet, jewelry making, alcohol ink painting, health & wellness and more! Oh and then there is the BEACH!

I love sharing my “beachy” stuff with you. Plus now that it’s summer (well almost) the beach is calling to me. I love the sand, the surf, and the sound of the waves crashing to shore. I love to watch for the sea turtles that are laying nests then going back to see how many little hatchlings made their way to the sea. I love the pelicans flying overhead and the occasional stingray, crab or even a shark I see as I walk in the surf. It’s my “happy” place and I’m glad I can give you, my friends, a glimpse into my coastal life.

So look for changes on the website and my social media. I hope you like this new journey of mine and that you’ll come along for the ride.

Now here are the journal prompts for this week! Have fun with them!

  1. What good habit would you like to begin this month?
  2. How would you describe yourself to a stranger?
  3. How are you making the world a better place?
  4. When was the last time you indulged yourself and how?
  5. Who are your role models and what qualities do you have in common?
  6. What’s one choice you can make right now that your future self would thank you for?
  7. What are you really good at?

Happy Journaling!
