I’d Love Your Ideas, Thoughts, & Feedback!
Please, tell me everything…
Still in utter disbelief that we are in October, but I’m thrilled about the change of season and, of course, a new month. Like I said in Monday’s post, October is such a fun one because it’s festive but relaxed. The hustle and bustle of the holiday parties, gifts, and events still haven’t kicked in fully yet… although the thought of the festivities nearing is equally as exciting!
But when I sat down to look at an empty content calendar for the month, I wished I could sit down with you, ask you all the questions, and hear everything you think about what you read every day!
To be honest, creating content every day is incredibly time consuming, much more than what you’d expect. And with my time much more limited these days (for a very good reason!), I want to make sure what you read here is serving you really well.
When I started blogging in 2009 it was just blogspot.com. But then along came Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Snapchat, TikTok (and the never ending stories and reels!). Realistically I can’t blog five times a week, send out two newsletters, and hit every single social platform every day at my best. Would I like to? Y-E-S, and it keeps me up at night that I don’t. But the quality of the work decreases tremendously. The 24-hour news and content cycle is a brutal pace. It doesn’t leave room for thoughtful content that takes days, weeks, or often months to create. I don’t want to just check off boxes for the sake of it (and you know how much I love a checklist!).
I’d like to create content that is inspiring, helpful, and entertaining. Both seasonal and evergreen… I want the content that connects with you and to serve you well.
So with that being said, I’d truly love and am excited (!) to know your thoughts on the subject. I have analytics, stats, etc. that we are constantly reviewing to make decisions, but there is nothing quite like chatting with you. Would you mind hopping into the comments section below and letting me know how best I can help you? I would appreciate it *so* much!
