Sharing a Life of Words

You know when you get an idea, and you think, “that’s crazy, don’t be ridiculous,” but it won’t go away? Like you’ve turned a light on in your head, and no matter what you try, you can’t turn it back on again? That’s what it’s […]

8 authors with great Instagram feeds

Ch-ch-changes (AKA why your target audience is so important)

So the time has come! I have bought a new bullet journal and am in the process of setting it up for the new year. When I got my first bullet journal I immediately headed to Pinterest and Instagram and looked up ALL the pages. […]

How I set my monthly goals

How I set my monthly goals

So, a few months ago, I decided to do monthly goal setting. It was around the time that I read The Happiness Project, and I was listening to Gretchen Rubin’s Happier podcast. The first ever episode I listened to dealt with the Essential Seven. She […]

July goal-setting: Time to take a break

July goal-setting: Time to take a break

This month feels way more successful than last month. Even though this blasted 30 day challenge is on there for, I think, the FOURTH MONTH IN A ROW, I have made peace with the fact that I’m not in a place right now to do […]

5 ways I’ve been using my bullet journal lately

A couple of months ago, I ran a user survey, and asked people to tell me what they wanted to see more (and less) of on the blog. Overwhelmingly, people wanted to see more of my bullet journal! It’s a system that I’m a massive […]
