So, this is part 'this moment' - see above - a small boy with adventure backpack, wooden sword in hand, headtorch on...hurling himself through the sand dunes at sunset.
Yuss. One to remember.
And...here's where the 'moment' morphs into renegade rambles...(friday's 'this moment's are meant to be no words allowed...shhh, don't tell Amanda...see her 'this moment' post HERE and scroll down to be linked to hundreds of others)
I just about fell off my stool when i saw the date of my last blog post. I had a whole weeks of goodness lined up here for you and somehow it all sneaked by. Sigh. (Note to self: structure in blog time in the day)
I love this wee space in blog land. It's been years now. Years! I love hearing from you all about your high and lows, your offerings of wisdom and sharing your story...either in comments or by email. Mostly by email, i get you're a private sort of a crew.
I'm doing battle with the dilemma of making more money from home so i can continue to be the kind of mama i want to be. I'm looking to write more articles, get those online shops heaving, work that market, how to live life juicy and full -and i am running workshops again this year. Yehaa! It's all work from the heart, speaking out about creating a more sustainable future, about sharing life skills and stepping up.
Folks keep suggesting i put more energy into the blog, host giveaways and take sponsors and use it to link together all that i offer the world these days. I have been reticent. I make big bloggy plans but then haven't quite manifested the time to make it all happen. I want to. I do. And then i realised the delay is i am battling with my relationship with money. My self worth i guess. Blucch. Coming out of that 'life with baby/small child mindset' to that of working mama. Balance. I need to be mindful of how i juggle these pieces of my life. Also on my mind, and important to me is integrity. This here blog is from the heart and i want it to continue to be that way. I'm not sure the sponsorship route is for me, for this space but if i do...it'll be folks i support and want to promote.
I'm going to step into uncharted lands here in the next few months, i have plans - a few series, a wee blog facial, some linky goodness, community building, giveaways, and i'll try (TRY) more frequent posting...oh, good stuff...very good stuff. Such fun to dream up and hear others excited about it all too. The technical aspects of it all is terrifying me it has to be said. All the more exciting you say? Why yes!
(Oh sheesh, now i have committed myself haven't i? Gulp!)
