Hello October 2017

hello october

Hello October 2017! You have started like as a blank canvas for many of us, your arrival signals the festivities.  From Thanksgiving all the way through to Christmas itself, yes I said it Christmas 2017. I won’t claim to be an overly organised person when it comes to presents, giving or receiving. But this year all that is about to change as I already have a couple of items already. The start of October also signals a chance to for people to work on their yearly and/or monthly goals. It is time to check the progress of how far we’ve come and what else we can accomplish.

I am sure everyone has plans for this month but as I say Hello October 2017, I am forced to re-assess. There is so many things that have happened in my life so far that I am still accepting. Completing my 30 countries before 30 bucketlist comes to mind. Finding another source of funding for my education is another, all these I did not do alone.

Whilst I sit here typing and thinking of ways of ways of saying Hello October 2017, life is passing by fast. With only 3 months left to the year, I wondered what challenge I should set myself. Then I remembered I promised to write an e-book, sharing tips on how I make money blogging. Obviously there are countless books out there and posts on this subject alone. But I feel I have something different to offer that most part-time bloggers can relate to and might use.

Another thing I am thinking about is being more intentional and consistent with my monthly newsletters. My subscribers must have gotten a surprise yesterday when they saw me send the newsletter. The last time I sent a newsletter was January 2017, that’s already 10 months ago. I have vowed to work on this more and ensure I share my newsletter monthly. It is with my newsletter that I will offer the e-book for free a limited time only but first, I need to write it.

And that’s it from me, this is how I am saying hello to October 2017. How are you greeting October? Any plans for this new month and the rest of the year?
