    What Does Online Visibility Look Like?

    I’ve made a promise to myself to be more visible starting this month. However, when I created my blog 11 years ago, I had no clue about using social media. I probably wouldn’t have even tried to interact with social media if I hadn’t needed to engage with people to read what I had written […]

  • My 11th Blogaversary for Shalavee.com

    My 11th Blogaversary for Shalavee.com

    This August 2022 marked the 11th year of blogging. But I have had no urge whatsoever to tell anyone about this. Why? Because I just couldn’t see how I had achieved enough with all of these years. Because I am not a popular money-making blog. How do we measure success after all but money and […]

    Shifting into Action Figure Mode and Revamping My Blog

    Once upon a time, I was the gal who had started a blog with no idea what she thought she was doing. I floundered and almost gave up and then I finally found a rhythm in my writing. I had an overachieving phase. I played with all sorts of fun features on my blog. After […]

    I’ve been on hiatus from writing for a couple weeks. I was very busy celebrating my 20th wedding anniversary in my backyard and then there was the cleanup and the wind down. I have been thinking s lot in the quiet space that was created. Enjoying the space not to have to do but to […]

    I Need You To Commune With Me

    My blog is about to turn ten. I started it to improve my writing. That worked out pretty well l think. I intend to continue blogging to connect and commune with other women. No intention is truer for me. It’s my guiding mantra. I found myself when I joined community and I want to live […]

    A New Shalavee.com is Born

    I have spent so many years fretting over this blog makeover and it’s finally happening. The new face of Shalavee.com is here, still under a little construction. I owe a lot to the ones who facilitated the actual change. First to Danielle Darling who envisioned the new site and logo and then to Hayley Geller […]

    The Last Post of an Era

    If you have been a reader of my blog for a little while, you may know that a renovation has been imminent. An ongoing process that has lasted five years in which I was terrified and hopeful that I would finally have a beautiful new site. And that wish is about to be realized. What […]

  • Emerging from the New Year’s Lull

    Emerging from the New Year’s Lull

    I am considering how to emerge from the “Lull”. I’ve been working on so much behind the scenes and in my head. Caught up in the doing and not the showing and telling. Coming to terms with, acknowledging, establishing, understanding, and claiming my inner and outer worlds. I always struggle with what is important enough […]
