Morning, dolls. This morning I've got the intro to my first reading challenge but also some news that I've been promising regarding the business.
First, today marks the start of our Goldfinch Reading Challenge, taking on Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch over the course of 8 weeks to finish just before the end of 2016. I've set up a Goodreads group for it and posted the reading schedule so I hope you'll join in, head over to the Read-Alongs page to find the link to the challenge.
Secondly, I know things have been somewhat haphazard the last few weeks between illness and some other pressing responsibilities as a parent, so in the interest of trying to stay consistent for you all I have to relay some changes. I love writing so much content each week between posts, Instagram, and the weekly newsletter - however I'm finding myself not having enough time to actually get work done for the business, which is what I'm supposed to be here for in the first place. To better serve that purpose, Mentality Monday will be moving solely to Instagram without the tandem blog posts and blog content will be knocked down to two posts a week on Tuesdays & Thursdays instead of the Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule I have been keeping. Reading Challenges will not be written about outside of announcements and introductions as I want that content to stay within the respective Goodreads groups for the sake of encouraging conversation. There will be some weeks where the blog only has one post and there will be a break for a holiday vacation at the close of the year. Weekly and monthly newsletters will continue as is, however I won't be releasing digital wallpapers unless there are actual requests for them. Freebies will be added to the Subscriber's Library intermittently averaging 1-2 a month.
Again, I love doing all this for you but I'm simply one woman who also has to raise three boys much of the time all alone. I can't overextend myself at their expense. Much love to you all, and thank you for your support and patience as I work to find the balance between mom and solopreneur. <3
