I was inspired by a post from Emily Henderson a little while back. She was in her “pre-baby-nesting-I-don’t-know-what-to-do-so-I’ll-be-uber-productive-and-write-lots-of-long-posts-before-the-baby-comes” mode. And she totally inspired me to think about my blog goals. And to be completely honest and vulnerable and hand some accountability to the readership. My inner control freak cringes here.
I may be totally ripping off her content (I like to think of it as being inspired) but I’m sure she wouldn’t mind.
I too want/need to grow the blog’s readership. (I’d give you numbers and dates but then I run the risk of failing that.)
So to that end,
I want every post on Shalavee to be valuable:
– and as well written as is possible
Posts are posted Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The amount of weekly posts can be added to but not subtracted from.
Content/subjects of posts include:
-self-discovery and positivity

– Ahas- Life lessons about creativity, family, positivity, or parenting
– Funny posts
– Evergreens (posts that were good and I republish)
– And any other daggone thing I’m in the mood to produce
In an effort to find out what you think and like to read, I am committed to generating a questionnaire soon that asks the readership questions, I’m going to be playing with Typeform. Looks like it’ll actually be fun for everyone.
You will get a chance to tell me what you’d like to see more of, what you enjoy, and ask what your favorite posts have been and why. Feedback. But be kind to me dear readers. I’m a sensitive creative you know. I may also have to actually ask people to like me and sign-up for newsletters and stuff. Gulp.
I am inspired by many women including Sandra and Jennifer to work hard to make this blog a place I enjoy and make a difference in my quality of life. And thus maybe yours. Either you like what I’m working on or you don’t I suppose. That is not for me to decide but for my readers. I am committed to supporting others and creating a community for myself. I’m practicing “Intentional In-touchness”. That’s linked to the article.
Thanks for sticking this one out and I do appreciate all your support, feedback, and comments. I’m on the verge of figuring out what I really want to be when I grow up.
