As we head into 2019, I am going to take some time for silent reflection, which means I may be silent on my blog and social media pages for a short period of time…
My featured image for this blog post (also pictured below) is a photo I took during a trip to a gorge near our home several years back. I do some photography as a hobby on the side. The photo tells a story of seasons. Everything in the image is so still, calm and reflective. We know that the ice will soon melt as the season changes and something new and beautiful will emerge from underneath.
I started this journey about 4 months ago. I’ve achieved some really amazing things in that short period of time. I never would have imagined it at the beginning of this year because I never planned to start a blog this year. Luckily, a fellow blogger friend gave me a slight nudge, so I finally took the plunge!
As I approach the new year, I want and need to do some reflection before I enter into my new ‘season’. I want to deliver more exciting, quality and useful content. I want to adjust my content to reach a larger audience. And I also want to highlight some very successful people I know, that have walked the STEM career path and could offer some great insight and perspective. I am hoping that I can deliver some giveaway’s here and there also!
My full time job is a ‘momgineer’, which means I work on my blog when my little blessings aren’t requesting my presence – HAHA! My time is truly limited. So in order to be successful, I need time to reflect and get more organized. I started down this road without a set destination and really without much planning.
I still plan to continue to provide ideas for parents, caregivers and educators to easily nurture a child’s already curious mind but with new and improved content – we desperately need more critical thinkers and problem solvers in this world and I am determined to help with that!
I have absolutely enjoyed every bit of this journey. My blog has nurtured my scientific mind and allowed me to stay up-to-date in my engineering knowledge and skillsets. It has also brought me back to my love for writing.
So for now, I know that I need to set some challenging goals for myself to achieve next year and get more organized in order to reach them.
Please be patient during my reflection and preparation phase! In the meantime, be sure to check out and follow me on my social media pages so you can see what I’m up to. And if you like what I’m doing, please share it with your family and friends too.
Also, let me know what kind of content you’ve enjoyed… book reviews, my visits to various STEM locations, fairy house, etc. I want to continue to deliver what is useful and enjoyed.
Huge thank you to all of my loyal followers, fellow bloggers, friends, family and former co-workers that have either shared my blog, my social media pages or just shared in the excitement of my content each week. Thank you for believing in me and supporting me!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and even better start to the New Year!
All the best,
