When I was a little girl my grandma and grandpa always had peanut butter kisses sitting around in little glass jars. I still love them and how they remind me of the girl that still gets overly excited for Halloween! That’s me! I’ve Halloween longer than I can remember, anyone else? But for real, what’s your favorite Halloween candy? 🍬👻 🎃
Blogging tip Thursday! Just kidding, that's not a thing around here, but tonight it's going to be because I've got a tip for ya. . If you want to get serious about blogging and have others take you seriously, start doing these 4 things REAAAALLY well. . 1. Be consistent. 2. Provide quality content. 3. Build trust with your audience. 4. Promote your work. . Now before you're like "Steph, I KNOW there is more to having a successful blog than those 4 things, it's a lot of work!" Yes, agreed. Buuutttt if you can master these 4, your blog will be at a whole other level. . You'll go from writing when you feel like it (which is totally fine, absolutely nothing wrong with that) to someone that people start to see as an expert in your area. They'll start to think of YOU when they think of the topic you talk about. When you need baking advice, who do you reach out to? When you need design work, who do you contact? When you're trying your hand at knitting, who do you call? YOU can be that for someone if you do these 4 things and do them well. . Just wanted to leave this one here for you today. Go get it my friend. What is "it"? Mmmmmm only YOU know that. . What's your biggest roadblock from starting or really diving into your own blog? Tell me below!
⛲️⠀ 🔘THERAPEUTIC THURSDAY🔘 ⠀ Psychiatric help 5 cents...the D.O.C. is in! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ♾♾♾♾♾♾♾♾♾♾♾♾♾♾⠀ ⠀ NO FEAR⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ •A great deal of what people say, think, or do is actually motivated by fear, which of course is always linked with having your focus on the future and being out of touch with the Now. ⠀ ⠀ •As there are no problems in the Now, there is no fear either.⠀ ⠀ •Should a situation arise that you need to deal with now, your action will be clear and incisive if it arises out of present-moment awareness. It is also more likely to be effective. ⠀ ⠀ •It will not be a reaction coming from the past conditioning of your mind but an intuitive response to the situation. In other instances, when the time-bound mind would have reacted, you will find it more effective to do nothing — just stay centered in the Now.⠀ ⠀ 📸: @doorwaysofchicgo⠀ 📍: Cadillac Drive in Ottawa Hills ⠀ 🔗: Excerpt From: Eckhart Tolle. “The Power of Now”
We've really enjoyed our summer up north, I think we explored more of Michigan in two months than we did the three years we lived here! This shot is from where I grew up, although the wind turbines are still relatively new, they make it a more epic landscape. #windturbines#alternativeenergy#birdseyeview#puremichigan
