Wednesday Weigh In: Checking In

The scale reading this week is pretty much what I expected. After a weekend of drinking green beer and eating birthday cake a slight increase is fine with me. :)

I’ve been feeling a little distant on the blogs recently. Most of my energy is being spent on the boys and the conference while trying to prioritize everything else.

There’s just SO much I want to do that I end up doing nothing at all.

At least that’s how it feels.

Does that make any sense?

It’s doesn’t. I know. I’m just babbling.

Speaking of babbling I recorded a podcast today! It’s a long one. I hope to post it this weekend. Other things I’m working on…

A Multisite Newsletter. Nothing fancy. Just something you can opt in on if you’d like to get 1-2 updates a month from across all my sites. I want to offer it as an option as I know not everyone’s an RSS fan and getting an email every time I post can be quite annoying. My plan is to showcase some of my better content while breathing life into my archives. I’m also thinking of doing fun daily menus using GreenLiteBites ideas and sharing some of my favorite posts from other blogs.

A Book Proposal. Carla and I are *this* close to finishing a traditional book proposal. We even have a literary agent! Not sure where this will all lead but I’m excited about the project and I love working with Mrs. MizFit. :)

New GreenLiteBites Features. SO excited to be partnering with ZipList to offer save recipe and shopping list features! Hopefully it will go live in a week or so.

Toddler Times. I may be stepping down from blogging on Babble. I’ve never really been a traditional "Mommy Blogger" in the sense that I can blog about parenting topics and kids over and over again. I love sharing stories and photos (*cough* did you see how many I posted of Bean eating cake?) but ever since they introduced the slide shows I feel like everyone is just writing list based top 10 crap for pageviews and that’s just not fun for me. I think this may be my last month there. I haven’t decided yet.

Posts a Brewing. I’ve started so many posts in my head recently but haven’t actually been able to get them out. It’s weird. I feel like I’m finding my way in this whole blogging thing yet again. It’s funny how I need to redefine it for myself every now and then. I read this amazing post and it lit a fire in me. I’ve always been a people pleaser to a fault and I think it’s held me back in a way. More on this later, I just really wanted to share that link. It’s a must read.

That’s all I’ve got tonight. Must head to bed, I have an early morning workout planned. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I read in a book once that you should spend 30 minute time slots in a day where you can. Just use up that 30 minutes. If you don’t finish the project, oh well. It will be waiting for you to spend your 30 minutes on it again tomorrow. At least spending a little time each day on something adds up to more than feeling overwhelmed and not even starting the project. LOL. I think we all have things we feel like this about!

    So understand having the so much going on you end up accomplishing nothing. I have thought of a business idea I want to persue, but there are so many facets I am not sure where to begin. Any suggestions?

    I’m so excited for you and MizFit to write that book. I’ll be buying it for sure! :)

    I totally agree, Roni! I don’t mind stalling in the scale from intentional celebrating. I did that myself last week with my mom’s birthday. It was the best chocolate cake ever. Worth every bite of the two big pieces I had. : )

    I see what you are saying about Toddler Times, but I will miss you if you leave. I love reading your work there but I understand what you are saying.

    Lots of exciting stuff going on for you! YAY!

    I’m so over Babble. I find the site has become too commercialized and the content isn’t compelling anymore. Glad I found your site through them, though.

    I just have to say that I agree about Babble. I HATE the slideshows. They are a pain. I wish that I could click a button and get the full article and list of links.

    I totally get this “There’s just SO much I want to do that I end up doing nothing at all.”

    I used to live by the motto ‘the busier I am, the more productive I am’ but that’s gone out the window the last few months. I’m hoping I’ll get back on track soon.

    I try to follow you on Toddler Times but agree with others about the slideshows.

    Candice – Check to see if you town has a small business resource center. They offer free workshops and have a ton of resources!

    Barbara – It’s actually not the podcast it’s my site. I’ve been having an increase in traffic and it’s been taxing my server. I hope to have the problem fixes soon.

    That being said if you wait a second and then try again or refresh it normally loads.

    Sorry about that!!
