It’s mid month already?! How did that happen so quickly? We are less than 2 months from 2017 people, GET A GRIP! I hope you’re all back from previous weeks of this linkup and I know I enjoy it every week when it comes around, please come tell us what you think- is this a regular thing? Did you just find us? If so, how? We’d love to start hearing from you and why you love linking up to share new and old posts here every week. I hope you’re getting some good exposure and comment love. Our whole purpose for this linkup was to make friends (connect you all) and to share old posts that may get ‘lost’ in your archives never to see the light of day or keyboard comments again.

Feel free to share other content on your blog or re-share/comment/pin/stumble etc. We’d like the love to extend beyond just us. Here’s who I liked from the previous week:

Currently….. November

I love Currently posts (in fact, I have one coming this week) and I wanted to share one that I enjoyed this past weekend. Mostly because I’ve been eating junk and being super lazy lately so I related to her in a total plain kinda way, I felt way less guilty for wasting my week by being a slug. On the other hand just because I like to share what I’m up to with everyone and this is a good way to do that.

November Goals

I like Goals posts for the same reason. I like checking them off as a I go and I love Burke Does for all her personal development type posts. I feel like I can grow with her like she’s working to be a better well rounded person, so am I. So I love her blog and really can’t wait to follow her and read all her posts as they are published. Plus the few times we’ve spoke- she’s a super sweet gal!

Netflix Movies I Loved

 netflixmoviesiloved

In my spare time I love to watch shows and movies on Netflix and it’s my favorite self care agenda. There’s so many that  I watch to choose from that I thought I should share with you. These are documentaries honestly but I’ve been really into them lately and all these shocking truth stories are riveting. I hope you like my suggestions.

Shanandoah:

This is a documentary about the assault & imminent murder of a minority Mexican man in a primarily small town white town in the south. The town backed them up and almost no fault was to blame the young boys who did it and the authorities who covered it up. It is a gross view of our countries grave justice system.

Who took Johnny?

An investigation of a cold case tries to determine what became of Iowa paperboy Johnny Gosch, who disappeared 30 years earlier. A tragic story of Johnny, a boy taken from his small hometown and his parents relentless search to find his kidnapper and bring them to justice.

Audrie & Daisy

Two personal stories about two girls sexually violated by people they once knew  and the fallout that came from it, the trauma and the aftermath of dealing with life after being assaulted. Very sad, honest recollection of these girls stories and moving scenes true to scenario.

The Witness

It’s a moving story about a woman named Kitty Genovese who was killed in front of 38 strangers who did nothing. It was the story to break the newspapers and has been hidden in the past for generations. Her brother conducted a story about her loss and what transpired because of it- like the 911 system itself so folks could report suspicions right away anonymously.

Finding Vivian Maier

A biological timeline about a nanny who had many secrets involving her identity and her hidden talent- photography and art. Follow along while a guy who stumbles upon her things goes digging into her life to make her known for more than just being a invisible nanny.

Kids for Cash

A scandal/conspiracy about Judge Civarella and Judge Monahan who supposedly sold kids to a private juvenile camp for cash kickbacks, The judges got sucked up in the mess and this is the story about the kids who were victims of the triangle of the system mess. Another sad case about our flawed justice system.

I hope you’ll check all these out! I really enjoyed them and I think you will too.

netflixmoviesilovedpin

I’d love if you left me a comment or a list of some Netflix or Hulu favorites you have- maybe I haven’t seen them. I hope you love the movies/documentaries I’ve chosen for you.

Oh hi there! Great to see you again. I hope you’re back joining us for another week of #bloggybrunch linkup. Truth is we had a chat but after several weeks of it just being not as successful as we hoped – we just canned it. Pamela is steadily working on lots of new projects though and I’m trying to focus on better content and steady posts. As well as a possible newsletter and maybe some free content upgrades. what would you like to see? A checklist of some kind? A photography linkup? A quote or saying for the season? Let me know. 

october-award-bb

This is my favorite of the month from my link-up partner, it really helps when I don’t know what to post monthly. She gives me so much inspiration on the daily! She is the greatest person to bounce ideas off of and brainstorm with. Go check out her blog for monthly prompt and ideas when you’re stuck. *click picture for link*

october-post-ideas-fb

Coincidentally, my other linkup partner (Alex) also had my favorite of the month for her October Monthly Goals and aspirations post. I just really enjoy people making goals and checking them off.

November Intentions

novemberintentions

I’ve been making intentions and setting goals each month for over a year now. If you want to go see past posts you can click here. Having goals for the future and intentions on what I want to accomplish now shows you what you’re working towards and how far you’ve come. This is in hopes of you also linking up with Hodge Podge Moments and telling us yours. Here’s a refresher of my October Intentions were and also whether I feel like I met them or not:

  1. Stick to my blog schedule M/W/F/Sun
  •  schedule time to brainstorm and write blogs
  • Schedule social media with Hootsuite
  • Make use of #powerhour with Pamela and Raewyn

I did really good with this one and I think I met everything I set out to do. On my phone I have a master list of ideas that I built on more and pulled from for October and November. Late night #powerhour with Pam and Rae and scheduled social pretty well this past month.

2. Keep house in order (chore days & weekends catch up)

  • Laundry-Tuesday or Thursday
  • Dishes-at use or at nights before bed
  • Vacuum-Wednesdays
  • Shorties Cage: Saturday
  • Tidy- Daily

I would say I accomplished this section too as I didn’t have a schedule but the house has stayed and been maintained clean for awhile now. I have been cleaning Shorties’ cage and feeding her regularly as well. CHECK!

3. Create a daily routine

  • Make and follow a morning routine
  • Make and follow a nightly routine

Did NOT do this. BOO! FAIL! We got on a bad sleep schedule and I messed my whole life up. Feeling a  lag for over a week or two now so I’m trying to change that. And at least get up earlier to get motivated and be a productive adult. Making a routine will help so it’s on my to do list for sure.

4. Organize/Update Blog

  • make drafts/brainstorm re-do pages (Emily Finta)
  • create idea for uniform graphics
  • create categories and update tags
  • mission statement & welcome page

I didn’t get to this either although I have been randomly updating tags, categories and some lacking blog posts. That’s something right? I’ll work on this more over the next month or so when I’m able to take on more.

5. Create a self love/self care time daily-weekly

  • write daily in instant happy journal
  • read excerpt from find your happy daily mantras
  • write a bit in 52 weeks of ….. happiness/list project books
  • read/listen to a self growing type of book (audible, blog related or like “complaint free world”

This was a 50% type of thing, I did pretty well but not my best. I have been pampering myself such as sweets, cuddle time and face masks. Also I have been taking lots of time to write but not as much to read- that’s to be worked into my daily schedule as well. Soon my dears! Cheer me on!

6. Learning Hour-make the blog better, streamlined and grow it

  • do things about learning how to make the blog better
  • read ebooks, webinars and posts about growing, social media etc.
  • newsletter business
  • batch-writing and blog scheduling

Learning hour has been helpful and I know I can and will do more. I’ve watched some webinars and taken lots of notes but nothing further than that. Batch writing is commencing so maybe this week/weekend will be a test phase for that one. I’m still determined to get a newsletter up and running as well so let’s jump on that business bandwagon. What do you think of a blog newsletter? Do you have one? Is it necessary for growth? Helpful, in what ways?

novintentionspin

These are my intentions and goals for November:

1.Keep my blogging schedule M/W/F/

  • Brainstorm and come up with original ideas
  • Schedule social media with Hootsuite a week at a time
  • #powerhour with Pamela and Raewyn each night

2.Keep house in order (weekends as catch up)

  • Laundry 1x weekly as needed
  • Dishes daily (help from roommate on weekends)
  • Vacuum weekly and tidy daily as needed

3. Plan out and create a daily routine (make blog post out of it)

  • make some daily structure (get up, shower, get dressed, feed dogs, blog hour, clean time, make meals, read, write, etc)
  • make a nightly routine and find a sensible bedtime that works for me (to get tired again)

4. Organize Update Blog

  • create uniform graphics for posts
  • work on tags/categories/update archived posts in blog
  • sketch out design/layout of pages for Emily Finta

5. Take time (more structured*) for self love (including: writing, reading and self care)

  • face masks, hot showers, tea and a good book, writing in IHJ daily and on time (get caught up today)
  • write in 52 weeks of…….. books for grateful and thankfulness
  • continue and finish “You are a Badass” on audible- perhaps while blogging, take any notes needed for growth

6.Learning Hour-make the blog better, streamlined and grow it

  • read e-books, webinars and posts about growing, social media etc.
  • newsletter (GET IT GOING! SCHEDULE IT by October 15th)
  • batch-writing and blog scheduling ( needs to be done daily with Social Media batching weekly)

So, I hope I can progress further than I did last month. I didn’t get much accomplished. However, starting off this month strong by batch writing and sharing everything effectively gives me hope. I’d love to know what your goals or intentions are. Updating my stats as well to see how far I’ve come in the last year will be exciting. Good Luck and Happy November!
