What’s to come…

Happy 2011, everyone! I hope you all had a safe and exciting New Year’s Eve/Day. Me? I was asleep as the New Year rolled in and spent New Year’s Day eating {again…didn’t I do enough of that at Christmas?} and enjoying some time with family. Hard to believe we will be telling them goodbye in just two days. But more on that later…I was reading a really great post by Theta Mom on reevaluating goals and visions for your blog. I already mentioned that there were some big changes and some new things in store for my blog coming in 2011, but today I wanted to elaborate on just a few of those.

I already mentioned that I am making the move to Wordpress, and with that move, will come a few new features. I am really going to try to push my No Mom Talk Monday meme and really get it out there. Maintaining individuality and finding a purpose to the life outside of parenthood is something that I feel very strongly about. Being a mom is a tough job, and I feel that too many women have children and start to visualize that as their only job…so I want to expand No Mom Talk into something bigger than what it is now. I’ve gotten behind on posting them every week because of the holidays and the moving and all of that jazz. But now that we are near to being back in our own home, I want to get it back up and going. So be on the watch for it.

I also want to start featuring more of YOU and your writing. I’ve learned tons from other mom bloggers and I’ve been inspiring by some of you too many times to count. And you guys deserve some credit and recognition for your efforts and your posts. So, hopefully…depending on how our cross-country trip is going starting on Friday, I’ll be starting up something I’m going to call Feature YOU Friday. It’s going to be similar to some of the other around the blogosphere hops you see out there [such as the one Chrissy Mac with Life as a CEO features on Sundays]. There are so many great posts that I read throughout the week and I want to start featuring those and spreading the word about some of the other wonderful bloggers out there. They’ll be features of all kinds-photos I have found that I find stunning, posts that inspire me or make me laugh, even recipes that I enjoy.

I also have another idea up my sleeve that I won’t share with you just yet. It’s something that’s still rolling around in my head and I’ve not quite figured out how or if I want to act on it just yet. But as soon as I make a choice and get it going, I’ll share it with you guys!

Another blogging goal I’ve set for myself this year is to write for ME. To write what’s on my heart, what’s on my mind, and really take a detailed account of our journey to Alaska and our newfound life there. There are some really big changes coming for our little family and I am so excited to share it with all of you.

I am on my way home from Tampa for the last time today. We had a few minor errands to run and some Christmas things to put in storage and now it’s off to Alabama to pack up for the cross-country journey. Make sure you watch the blog, Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday! I’ll be documenting everything, so you won’t want to miss it! I’m also connecting with a great bloggy friend on Wednesday, so there will certainly be photos to come!

And just because I wanted to share it…here’s a photo for today [currently the one on my laptops background]:

Happy Monday, all! Don’t let the “real world” over work you today!
