Happy one year to us!! It’s amazing to think that I’ve been writing for Runitlikeamom for a whole year. I remember when I was offered the opportunity to apply for this, I thought to myself, “Wow, I hope I can keep up!”. Yet I have. I managed, like all the other ladies on the Runit team, to add this to my already full plate, and I’ve maintained my commitment. I’m so glad I have.
Over the course of this year, I have learned how to make writing a priority, and I’ve found the best way to incorporate it into my schedule. It has renewed my love of writing, and I have found this process to be beautifully therapeutic. I am thankful for the guidance of my Runit teammates, and all the friendships that have blossomed from it. I believe that I have grown as a writer, and above all- I am grateful for this opportunity to have a voice for all the Moms out there.
Upon reviewing my topics over the last year, I find that I cover a wide range of subjects. I tend to be very inconsistent with my posts, whether it be a personal musing of some sort, an article I read, or a gardening project I’m excited about. Generally, it’s whatever strikes my fancy at any given time, and as I learn more about being a successful blogger, it’s recommend that you don’t do that. I’ve been reading that I should narrow my focus, and in that, I’ll become somewhat of a reference in that topic.
So what do you think, folks? Should I hone in on coaching parents as we face behavioral issues together? What about the nutritional component? Don’t forget, I’m currently attending school to be certified in Sustainable Health and Nutrition- I’m busting with information in THAT department! Shall I be a reference to you as you do your best to support the health of your family? Should I post more recipes? Share more gardening tips?
Or are you ok with the “suspense” of never knowing what I’ll be writing about next? I’m personally torn. I feel that since there are so many facets to being a parent, it’s difficult to narrow it down to a couple of topics. Additionally, I feel that so much of the dynamics are a result of so many things intermingling (i.e. the correlation between nutrition and behavior), so in that sense I would have to continue to run the gamut in order to be as relatable as possible.
I would like to say again, how grateful I am for this opportunity. And just as much, I am grateful for you who are reading what we have to say. The community that has been created, just by sharing our failures and successes, has become a wonderful support system for myself and my family. I’ve always been a believer in the saying, “it takes a village”, and now I’m actually living it. So I thank you in advance for your guidance, as I am super excited about what this year has in store.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
