7-Imp’s 7 Kicks #90

From Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast:

“As a reminder, our 7 Kicks posts are the weekly meeting ground for taking some time to reflect on Seven(ish) Exceptionally Fabulous, Beautiful, Interesting, Hilarious, or Otherwise Positive Noteworthy Things from the past week—whether book-related or not—that happened to you.”

Please, please, please go to their post and look at the beautiful illustrations by Jackie Morris. I adore the Story Dragon and the picture from The Guardian.

1. This week I have been doing a lot of reading about how to be a better blogger, and it has really revitalized my attitude towards blogging and I hope within the next month or two will revitalize my actual blogging, too. I have at this point 5 blogs, 4 of which I’m going to treat as more personal journals and 1 of which I’m hoping to treat a bit more like a public forum.

2. I have come up with an idea for a sixth blog that is really exciting to me.

3. As a result of researching for that blog, I have discovered a local speaker/author/consultant who is exactly where I want to be when I am at his point in life. I’m working up the courage to drop him an email.

4. The universe has been sending me the message that I need to stop waiting for things to be right before beginning anything new – that I should allow myself to be messy and to fail.

5. My friend Sonja is a one woman tribute to the power of the internet, which is very exciting. She is a published romance writer thanks to the internet and also recently got a job by combining 15 second pitch and Twitter into a monster networking hybrid of Frankensteinian proportions. (Ok, there was maybe some hyperbole there.)

6. This is not from this week – it’s actually a few months old – but I never mentioned it here at lectitans – back in August my boyfriend of 10 years asked me to marry him. It was pretty exciting, and I had to step away from wedding planning for a few weeks to get my head on straight, but I’m back into it now and thanks to our extreme low key style I think it is going to be a lot of fun.

7. I love to make fruity quick breads, and this past week I made two loaves of pumpkin apple spice bread which were a big hit both at work and at home.

Don’t forget to post your own kicks!

  1. Kimberly, I posted this at our site, too, but thought I’d come here and visit as well.

    Good to hear from you. Congrats on your engagement. I think that a low-key style is the way to go. (We did a VERY low-key wedding and spent most of money on a big party afterwards for all our friends. Definitely worth it.)

    Congrats also on your better blogging epiphanies, and here’s to being messy and failing. It’s under-rated, huh? (Oh, and here’s to bread, too. I’m currently working on one of those Amish friendship bread starter thingies. Mmm.)
