Blogging in stages

I am not an SEO expert or seasoned content creator but after working for several years in education, I am fairly good in scheduling, prioritising and streamlining. This is how I approach my posts and it may work for you as well. I create a very short post just to test the water. Usually itContinue reading “Blogging in stages”

Create nice things for yourself

One thing I have learned while working at home is that it is hard to be motivated in the long run. Yes, I can get fired up for a week or two but how will I keep it going for the rest of the year right? I try to follow all the trends and adviceContinue reading “Create nice things for yourself”

Find your purpose…

I hear this so often, yet until recently I would not give you a clear answer. Of course, I could always make something up. I could can say something to my parents and something different to my kids.

I even wrote a post about it and thought to myself: “DoneContinue reading “Going back to what I know…”

Before I knew, I had to sign up for a ‘free course’ offered by my employer. So the choice for made for me!Continue reading “Making wrong choices and admitting to myself…”

Thinking about the next step…

From all of this I gather that the future is going to be about activity, flexibility andContinue reading “Thinking about the next step…”

Mini-blocks and mini-burnouts
