I have read other bloggers’ challenges and have wanted to do some, but never committed. This year I would like to make some blogging commitments, including posting at least once a week. I joined a reading challenge last year and lost track of how many books I actually read as opposed to updated in Goodreads. But this year I want to go beyond reading challenges.
My blogging challenge will range from easily achievable to more difficult: (more…)
As my Bitmoji shows, I am excited for yet another new year, full of opportunities and possibilities. I am the same old me, but that doesn’t mean that I have to do the same old stuff that I did last year. I’m so over 2017, both the good and the bad. I started last year helping out a friend run for Congress, and I ended it with helping the same friend and others give hygiene products and food to the homeless in Skid Row.
In between, I took fashion merchandising classes, attended the IND’Scribe Book & Con author event, was on set for a walk on role for the Passionflix streaming version of The Trouble With Mistletoe, and visited with family and friends.
I also expanded beyond just reader groups on social media to include Ho’oponopono and manifestation/positivity groups. I have been reading fiction and non-fiction. And I would love to travel to places that I have not been, such as Hong Kong.
I have not been blogging consistently nor often in 2017. I am willing to make a commitment to blog weekly in 2018. It can be about books, movies, music, organic lifestyle, and whatever. I know of bloggers who are also on YouTube, have podcasts, and do offline activities. I want to be one of them.
What does the new year hold for me? For you? For the world? We will have to wait and see for the world. But for myself, I want to explore my options, continue taking my classes, increase the frequency and variety of my exercising, expand my organic lifestyle, learn a couple of languages, and gain financial freedom.
What about you? What were the highlights for you in 2017? What plans or vision do you have for 2018?
Go Green with Your Beauty Routine!
I don’t use much makeup but when I do, it’s usually has organic and few non-natural ingredients. So, this book was of interest to me, though I had not heard of the blogger/author. I don’t usually read books or blogs about makeup. This book piqued my interest when I saw it offered on NetGalley for review. She shares her personal experiences as well as those of her clients.
