Time Out Reads – Slow Starts

Time Out Reads Slow Starts
Blossom Gazing
This week took a bit of getting going, what with the clocks changing, causing us to lose an hour and then a bank holiday Monday made the start of the week hard to get going.
It’s been a refreshing change though, having time to spend with the children, no real time constraints and the occasional day of sunshine really adding to the happiness in our home. I think it was what we needed.
That said, I have been busy working and researching, and not had lots of time to catch up on my favourite blogs and finding new ones to share.
When it comes to blogging, I find I easily get into the trap of loving it one minute and then letting it slip. I thought maybe changing my direction and starting this site would help to eliminate this but no, I think what I need is to get more organised and create a planner and start scheduling in posts.
This is something I used to do with my old business mums blog, which worked really well but I wanted to be more spontaneous with this one but that seems to lead to inconsistency and lack of direction.
I still want to post spontaneous posts but if I want to grow this site and my writing I need a plan.
Anyway enough about blogging, here are my picks from this past week
Cutting back and being mindful about what I spend my money on has been a big part of my new mindset. It still is a work in progress, but reading posts like Sara Weinreb’s over on Mind Body Green make me realise that this is definitely the way to go.
I’ve always had a big issue with labels in all aspects of life and I feel Dan Erickson is on the same wavelength as me. On his Hipp Diggs blog, he talks about how labels can confine you.
Finally, as it was April Fools Day Friday, something we don’t really partake in, I thought I’d share this great post from a blogger I have read since I started blogging many years ago. Audrey McClelland at Mom Generations share the wonderful prank her husband and son played on their friends and family. They really know how to pull off a practical joke!
