In a previous blog post, I wrote about choosing a “word of the year” to help keep me focused on my goals. Here, in part, is what I wrote, “The word that kept rising to the surface is DETERMINED! Such a powerful word and one that I know that when I am stuck on something I can say to myself, and it will inspire me to keep moving forward”.
I belong to a wonderful organization for people who are entrepreneurs that make handmade items called Indie Business Network. This group is so much more than a trade organization though, it is a network of people who support, inspire, encourage and challenge each other every day! I am embarking on a formal 30 Day Blog Challenge within the group that quite frankly terrifies me a bit! The challenge is to write a blog post once a day. Yes, you read that right, a post a DAY, 30 consecutive days! If ever there was time I needed to evoke my “word of the year”, it’s now! I am DETERMINED to complete this challenge.
This challenge comes at a perfect time because I want to get back to connecting with you on a more regular basis. In that earlier blog post, I wrote that I was going to blog once a week in an effort to connect better with you. I was on a good track for a while, and then got busy (don’t we all!) and slacked off a bit. No more excuses, I am DETERMINED to write every single day.
I will strive to share information with you that helps you to: get to know me better, learn more about our candles, learn more about entertaining, touching, and informative subjects.
Here are some of the ideas I am working on:
- How to re-purpose the candle containers once you have enjoyed burning the candle
- Craft shows I have participated in or will be participating in
- Animal charities (a huge passion of mine!)
- Becoming Vegan (a new journey I just began)
- How we named our company and created the logo/branding
I would love to hear from you about what types of things you would like to read about. Please share with me!
I am excited about this challenge and want to include you in the process.
I look forward to providing you with some interesting reading and getting to know each other better!
