Happy New Year y’all! I am kicking 2018 off with a tradition I started a few years back, choosing a word to direct my activities for the year that supports my goals. For the last almost 2 years, my blogging life has really fallen off, months with no posts or very sporadic posts, which creates a decrease in all areas of this blog life. So I chose the word increase for 2018.
Y’all see the definition, “make greater”, yeah that part, oh that got me pumped for real because that confirmed I chose the right word. A word that says the possibility exists to be greater in all areas, including this “influencer” world. Blogging is definitely a first love, but the events of the past year and a half decreased my interest. Unfortunately, I fell into a pattern where I would get my mojo back but then it would wane after one or two posts.
So I asked myself, why do you blog? Well, I like sharing what I know with others. This platform is so good for helping people increase their knowledge with unfamiliar topics or increase knowledge in a familiar subject area, by providing usable information. Either way, my readers learn something valuable. That is it, increasing value and knowledge for the readers that take the time to visit this blog, soak up the information, and leave a comment or question (yes I love comments and questions!!!).
Next up was deciding what are the goals that can manifest increase on this blog? How do I get to increase? Creating this increase will not be an easy task because it feels almost like starting over in way. Of course getting out of the dreaded comfort zone is a huge part of this increase, to be more I have to feel uncomfortable in new spaces that can propel robincharmagne forward. That is goal number one actually – get out of the cozy zone. Currently working on defining other goals, which is a big job, and then breaking those goals down into smaller tasks. That is how you eat an elephant right, one piece at a time. Have you heard that expression before? It is true.
There is so much opportunity to increase robincharmagne and make it a valuable resource for fashion, home decor and travel. I feel like I am back in the game, ready and committed to increase, one goal at a time.
What is your word for the year?
