I’ve always wanted to be the type of person who says, “I don’t believe in self-improvement.” Unfortunately, I have to admit that I am somewhat addicted to it. It’s the whole “new project” aspect of it. I love starting new things. Long time readers will know that where I lack is in the finishing. I’ve started so many projects that haven’t really gone anywhere. Either I forget, or lose interest. Really, unless it’s a job, I’m not good at sticking to a schedule.
This year, while I am still compelled to do a full new year clean and cleansing of my home (I am procrastinating on the floors), I am also finding myself waffling on what I want to take on as a new project for the year. My New Year’s resolution was about meditation and self-care (and doing a little more work on my blog). Later this week, I am going for my first mani/pedi of the year – I think I will probably go with an Imbolc-y colour.
For the blog, I will probably be going through and overhauling some of the pages, and adding to some of the most popular topics. I think that perhaps this is the year I need to give myself a break. Prompted topics, while they can make for some really interesting content, tend to end up feeling like a chore, especially when they are due every week.
I’d like to write more on topics that are interesting to me, regardless of genre. There are a lot of facets to me, so it can’t hurt to add some more facets to the blog. I think the category of Pagan Lifestyle has room for all the things that make up me and my life.
One idea I had been tossing around in my head was the thought of contributing to some Pagan magazine sites. It has been so long since I was up on the whole scene that I think it will take a bit of research to find out which sites are still active and popular – and looking for articles relating to a more secular approach to witchcraft and not only yet another spin on “How to Live a Religious Life”. We’ll see how that goes. I know that a lot of publications tend to shut down due to lack of interest/content.
On a positive note, no matter how flighty or lazy I get, this blog will always be here. Happy New Year – may yours be filled with blessings.
