March 1, 2011
For some inexplicable reason I am hopeful and excited about March. March is about my least favorite month of the year with typically little to look forward. Although the calendar says spring starts on the 20th the reality in these northern parts is winter for another solid month followed by mud season.
And yet... there is a lot of good writing vibes in my life right now and I am very excited to share them with you over the next month and into the beginning of spring.
I'm eagerly anticipating Heather's 30 Day Vegan Whole Food online workshop, which starts March 7th. I think there is still room to join the course. A couple of you have mentioned to me that you've signed up and I'm looking forward to sharing this experience with you. Cheers to healthy eating!
As I participate in this course I hope to bring you some health and wellness inspiration here at FIMBY. I have a couple posts currently in the works regarding herbal remedies and healthy families.
Another theme this month at FIMBY is creativity.
Sharing everyday creativity and beauty is one of the missions of FIMBY and runs through many posts. But this month I have some specific posts planned for how to encourage creativity in your own home. One of those will be at Simple Homeschool this Friday.
I have a bunch of other posts I've been sketching out and planning for this month (a giveaway from Gadanke coming soon) and I'd be happy if half of those ideas are actually published.
Looking ahead at FIMBY is rather new. In the past I've published very much "in the moment", telling the story of our lives week by week (I still intend to do that by the way). But increasingly I'm finding that what I want to share requires more writing than one or two hours per post and I need to plan ahead and use my time wisely to make this happen.
So I have this nifty low-tech tool called my editorial calendar (month by month paper calendar) where I pencil in the dates I hope to publish all these posts-in-progress.
Looking ahead to this month's editorial calendar I am excited. Maybe my writing enthusiasm will even carry me through the mid March doldrums of snow, slush, wind, and grey skies. Now that would be something to write about! Too bad I don't have any room on the editorial calendar (ha, ha!!)
PS. Speaking of editorial calendars and other blogging tools I thought I'd give another shout out to Rachel's e-book Simple Blogging.
I love her message and her practical ideas. I had the privilege of reviewing the book in the fall and offering my feedback pre-publishing. I think it's well worth the $8 if you are looking for less computer time and better blogging.
