Start and Grow Your Blog the Simple Way
Would you like to start a blog, but don’t know where to begin? Or maybe your blog is floundering, and you have no idea how to make it blossom.
In either case, I recommend the Goodblog Project, which is now available as a self-study course at a fantastically reduced price.
This course will show you how to blog simply, but effectively so you’re not wasting your time in all the wrong places. It will encourage you to fully connect with your readers so you understand their needs, and can truly be of service. It’s comprehensive too, covering everything from your blog title and tag line to creating products and more.
The Goodblog Project was a perfect fit for me. Find out more about the Goodblog Project, and see if it resonates for you. Note: This is an affiliate link so if you purchase the course you’ll receive an outstanding product, and support my work at the same time. Thank you so much!
One Way to Simplify the Mind
Every month I post a short retrospective to remind myself to focus on what really counts. I hope it inspires you to live more intentionally as well.
It hasn’t been easy this month, trying to be an good partner to my idiosyncratic body. I know I need to avoid all those extra thoughts that can get my mind spinning, and are totally unnecessary.
So when life gets complex, I like to take refuge in simple, mind-free tasks like cutting sunn hemp (pictured above) and “feeding” it to the banana plants and small fruit trees. There are countless life lessons you can learn from whatever you do as an extra bonus. Here are three I learned while cutting the sunn hemp.
- Find the easy way in. Many nitrogen-fixers and some small weed trees obscured my way at times. When I paused and looked, I found the easy way in.
- Step carefully. It’s rocky lava terrain mixed with decaying wood. That requires extra mindfulness.
- Pace yourself. I can avoid the inevitable impact of going beyond my limits by pacing myself.
