Setting | Listen, I had to sit myself down and have a heart-to-heart/tough love talk with myself. There are some things that I need to get in order. So to help me finish 2018 off strong and start off 2019 on solid footing, I’m going to be setting monthly goals for myself.
I’ll be sharing them here for accountability purposes. A bit of moral support would be appreciated as well. My goals post for September goes live tomorrow. 😬😬
Searching | I have to find a new OB/GYN and I’m not happy about it. My old practice doesn’t accept my current insurance and they currently don’t have an office in SC. To say that I’m not happy about this is an understatement.
I’m not rich yet (naming and claming it) so foregoing my insurance and paying for visits out of pocket isn’t an option right now. I’m calling next week to request some recommendations because my own personal search has left much to be desired.
I’m going to miss my old practice and the staff. I’m keeping hope that we’ll be reunited before I decide to have my next kid though.
While some of the stuff I knew because she’s an industry insider (Senior Director of Influencer Strategy and Talent Partnerships at Hearst Magazines Digital Media to be exact), she drops some insider gems and insight on what brands are looking for, how influencers can better position ourselves to attract those brands, and much more.
Definitely worth a read whether you’re new or old to blogging/YouTubing or whether or not you ever intend on monetizing your platforms. She emphasizes the importance of building community and hving a squad that’s a mixture of like minded influencers as well as friends and family members. Add this to your Fall TBR lists.
I’m not sure what I want to do for my birthday, but I know I want to be surrounded by my family. Also, I know what I want for my birthday for a change this year. I’ve already made a birthday registry at Target and am working on one for Amazon to share with family and friends.
Let me know in the comments if you’re a fellow Sagittarius!
I’m preparing to officially announce the readathon name and challenges next week. I’m excited but nervous at the same time. This will be my first time hosting my own readathon and I’m not sure what the participation response will be. Overall, I just hope that this readathon helps me to connect with more book lovers and that we all just have a great time reading and chatting books together.
Well, I’m off to enjoy the start of our 3-day weekend. I’m beyond looking forward to getting an exta day to sleep-in.
