Currently | 8.18.15

Watching | House of Lies (season 3 and 4) if you ever work with consultants, you will appreciate this show.
> Completed Hell on Wheels through season 4, waiting for Netflix to have season 5.

Reading | Team of Teams by General Stanley McChrystal a super interesting read on organizational engagement that pulls in military history.
> Also started James A. Michener’s Alaska, since I loved Hawaii so much, I moved onto this one for when I need a break from Team of Teams. Finished 14th Deadly Sin, part of the Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson.

Working On | Content strategy.
> Content is an important part of blogging (I would argue the most important) and it is also a focus for me professionally. I have been thinking about refining my content strategy to maximize my existing blog content in different forms.

Feeling | Sore
> I started bootcamp again after a two month break and it hurts so good!

Planning | The syllabus
> I will be leading a 1-day blogging workshop at the newly opened Writing Pad in San Francisco. This very successful LA-based school is now in San Francisco and I am joining the “faculty.” So if you live in the SF Bay Area, I’d love to see you!

Loving | That summer is almost over.
> I love autumn which is the best time of year in San Francisco – come for a visit!

My Favorite Photo | Buick Red Carpet
> I loved being behind the scenes at red carpet events (like the Oscars, the GRAMMYS and premieres) when I worked for Dolby. I have been working at the bank a little over two years (no red carpet events there) so it was nice to pretend a bit at the Buick event I went to in LA this past month. One of the bloggers took this photo of me and I thought it turned out pretty good!


Upcoming Posts | August
> In Pursuit of Happiness, why happiness is a choice.
> My roadtrip to Bend, Oregon. I drove a brand new Buick Encore to my family reunion and really loved the car.

What is CURRENTLY going on with you?

Content strategy is definitely one area of blogging where I need to step up my game, too!

I love that photo of you!! Yes, I need to work on content strategy too. I can barely keep up with new content.

I'm re-watching Army Wives because sometimes a good cry is what you need! My husband and I are looking for a book that we can read together. We're starting a husband/wife book club!

Eager to see what you do with your content. I'm also having that epiphany now, eight years into blogging and in the wake of relaunching my new redesign, weeeee.

P.S. I just started getting your newsletter again, even though I've been following you for yeaaaars. Did you reactivate it or was I just not receiving it?

@Kristin, I can't wait to see the redesign, I want to update too. On the newsletter, funny enough, I never sent one out until this year! So you didn't miss anything, I had just been collecting names and finally got my ass in gear to send a newsletter out!
