Hey guys! I realized this week that I haven’t posted a regular vlog almost all month long…And also, it’s incredibly hot in my office right now so the idea of sitting under hot lights in a sensible sweeter is literally melting my brain right now. Next week we’ll talk about Fury Born, but this week I just needed a day to laze around the house. I hope you enjoy this video, Please ‘Like’ and SUBSCRIBE. And as always, thank you so much for watching!
Hey Guys!!! I’m so excited to bring this video to you this week. I’ve wanted to try out a Hello Fresh box for literally two years, and this past week they were kind enough to send me three meals at half the original price! After a week of using this service, I can honestly say that I highly recommend trying it out at least once. If nothing else, it definitely takes the guesswork out of, “What’s for dinner?” For the week. I also love that there isn’t a bunch of wasted food lying around for days after I cook a meal. Minimal waste is a big plus for me! If you would like to try out Hello Fresh for yourself, go to

Hey Guys! Long time no see. . . Right? JK!!! I just wanted to get this video out there. I love this product! I love the convenience of throwing a LJB packet in my purse or my saddle bag when we’re on the road, and I can have a great cup of coffee anywhere! I can get my energy levels back up during the mid-day lull after work so I can squeeze a 30-minute workout in and still feel great afterward. I believe in this product, I stand by this product, and in my opinion, we should all give it a try 😉 For your own 30 day supply of Lean Joe Bean coffee, go to:
Recently I posted a vlog where I briefly mentioned how happy I was that my office was finally coming together. Flying high off the newly purchased coffee table to accompany my small loveseat, I could only imagine the fanciful notions I’d conjure while lounging on it. I had a new organizer and notebook to schedule out my blog posts and write ideas down in. A new set of fresh ballpoint pens sat inside the decorative pen holder, that was also new.
All the things that I felt I needed to write were finally in place, except for the small sheepskin rug that was on back order. . . Bummer.
The Driving Force
It would seem that on the surface, I was ready. Surely, armed with my new pens and coffee table, I’d be inspired to write the most captivating blog posts of my freelance career. Hell, I might even finish my novel this year. With the muse of my perfectly-cute blue loveseat I was unstoppable, right?
Wrong. As I glance up at my most recent purchase, a bookshelf from Target that’s lately held more used coffee mugs than actual books, I am brazenly reminded that no amount of cute office supplies will ever encourage great writing or ideas.
The year has merely just begun and I’ve spent more money on my office supplies than I’ve made off of my blog. Big Mistake!
Making Up For Lost Blogs
So here I sit, actually writing the first blog of the year. It’s only taken three weeks and about $600, but I’m finally doing it! Let this be a lesson to the children; if you can’t come up with a good idea with a composition notebook from the dollar store, you probably won’t be able to in a designer folio.
Mistakes Were Made
In the last couple of weeks, while I should have been writing, I’ve done some pretty extensive research on how to run a high performing blog. I started out by giving my website a mini makeover. I love the new clean look it has. It just seems more accessible than before.
I also took notice of what my favorite websites had writing blogs had to offer. What exactly hooked me to come back in the first place? What was the root of their fan base?
Because We Love A List
Here is a list I’ve compiled during my last few weeks of procrastination of websites that have given me some real insight into the blogging world.
