August has been a month that I’ve both looked forward to and been very anxious about, and here we are now nearly at the very end of it! My sister’s birthday was on the 9th and I knew that soon after that would be my first Problogger Event. I was excited about it but also quite scared about it to be honest! Anyway – I went, I enjoyed it, and I survived to tell the tale as you can see here and here and there is more to come!
So, now that the month is nearing its end, it’s time for a little reflection. Let’s go!
Making: Time to do some walking at my local waterfront (on Moreton Bay)
Cooking: Healthy foods as always
Drinking: Coffee and water
Reading: Lots of post #PBevent blog posts
Wanting: More hours in a day
Looking: Forward to December when we’ve booked 7 nights at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast!
Playing: The events and learnings from #PBevent 2015 over and over in my mind!
Deciding: On many things blog related
Wishing: I could have had longer chats with some people I met at #PBevent
Enjoying: The fact that I have learnt some really important new stuff that I can hopefully use to improve my blog and more importantly the experience that my readers have when they visit my blog!
Waiting: For a headache to go away at the moment!
Liking: That I now have so many more faces and voices to put with the blogs that I enjoy reading on-line
Wondering: Where the Problogger event will be next year
Loving: The fact that Twin 2 got offered and accepted a job on Wednesday!
Pondering: My Why
Considering: My mission and vision
Buying: No more for a while. I have spent way too many $$’s lately!
Watching: The Bachelor – I know it’s a silly show but light reality helps me to relax sometimes and I love reading the hilarious Rosie (of Mamamia) & Those Two Girls recaps!
Hoping: That my Mum’s broken wrist heals up and is pain free very soon
Marvelling: At the amount of incredibly smart, passionate and clever bloggers there are in the Australian blogosphere!
Cringing: Over how dorky I can be. I really should get out more!
Needing: Lots and lots and lots more $$money to do all the things I wanna do!!
Questioning: Always questioning what I do, how I do it and why I do it and the biggie – should I keep doing it?
Smelling: Still can’t smell!
Wearing: Comfy and casual clothes when I’m at home
Following: Lots of new bloggers since #PBevent 2015!
Noticing: That I’ve been feeling a bit flat since #PBevent. Not sure why?
Knowing: That I need to get outdoors and active more to get my head into a better place!
Thinking: Up 100 blog post ideas and writing a list. I’m up to No. 57 at the time of writing this!
Admiring: Those that walk their talk and are as they portray themselves to be!
Sorting: Out my SEO! I forgot about that pesky green light. Nearly all rectified now!
Getting: Myself more organised, or at least trying to!
Bookmarking: Blog posts I want to read but haven’t had yet had time to!
Coveting: So many blogging courses I’d like to do – hence my words for ‘Needing’ above!
Disliking: The disappointment of meeting someone that I had admired for many years who walked away from me mid conversation and was completely disinterested
Opening: Daily Blogger Boss emails teaching me how to better understand Google Analytics. I highly recommend this!
Giggling: with my daughter when we watch The Bachelor together!
Feeling: Like a very small fish in a very big and clever sea, but that’s ok because there is no other fish in the sea that is quite like me!
Snacking: On too many things I shouldn’t lately! Must get back on track!
Helping: Myself by listening and learning to understand my limitations and needs and acting as needed!
Hearing: The snores of my doggies – music to my ears!
How was your August? Can you believe September is nearly here? Spring time is one of my favourite seasons!
