I spent the past week pondering what I wanted to write in a Friday post.
I tossed around the idea of a lengthy essay... and then tabled that because I know my bandwidth limits. I liked the idea of making a weekly recommendation... but then recalled I found that to be a chore most weeks over on my old blog. I thought about pivoting and writing a post deep diving into a single search process... but the thought of writing that bored me.
So, I turned back to the brain dump planning document I created when I wanted to get back into blogging. I reread my ideas which drove me to focus on what I like about blogging. I like sharing. I like being upbeat. I like the little happy things we encounter.
Thus, the idea for this new weekly post arose.
On Fridays, I will now share a list of "Just Good Things." These will be posts of all the good things I encountered, saw, used, or experienced. The goal of this post is to share gratitude and the bright side of life.
To kick things off, here is my list from this week:
What are your good things of the week?
The best part about having your own blog is that you get to make the rules.
After my vacation last week, I realized that I did not miss writing this weekly post. Since I'm trying to Marie Kondo my life better (and remove things that don't spark joy), I've decided to end this feature.
I'll come up with something else to post on Fridays but the topic/theme is TBD.
I used to post regularly over on Blogger. (You can read my old blog here.) But then I had a baby and a pandemic hit.
Now I'm ready to get back to writing regularly. I missed it.
Well. If I'm being honest - I only missed some aspects of my old blog. All that time away gave me some perspective on what I like about writing and what I am ready to keep in the archives.
Soon, I will get back to regular posting. I'll share what I'm working on, highlight my recommendations for the week, and give you an insight into those everyday things we look up. I will also post the occasional essay when the mood strikes.
I spent some time thinking about what I want this fresh start to be. In the end, I decided that I want this blog to do is encourage readers to indulge their curiosity. Daily life has constant moments of learning which we can share to grow both personally and professionally.
Feel free to comment regularly! I love learning. I also love seeing what others are excited about.
