Whump Day Wed: Getting Organized

September 13, 2017

Welcome back to Whump Day Wed. I am having so much fun with my series. Thank you all so much for checking it out! Don’t forget to really keep up with me you need to sign up to my Talk Tuesday newsletter that comes out every Tuesday! Here is what I am reading, doing, watching, and listening to this week…..

Reading

My goal is to read a book a month. I am starting on Sarah Jakes Roberts new book Don’t settle for safe. I am just one chapter in but so far it’s really good. I read on my tablet. Who still reads books by hands? I like the ease of highlighting and having a lighted pad so I can read in the dark.

Doing

So I hired an associate editor for It’s Really Kita. I need someone to help me keep up with the latest trends and content for my website so I can talk shat….that’s what I do lol. I need help coming up with stuff to talk about. I also need to find a way to organize my planning. I was debating if I should look into Asana for task management stuff since I will be hiring a team or should I do trello to keep up with my blog content. Right now I use the wordpress calendar to plan out content and if I come up with an idea I write it down in my todist app. That’s how I have been doing it but now since I hired someone I want her to have access to my calendar and a way for us to bounce ideas off each other for content. How do you organize your blog life? Do you use a management system or a planner? I just need to make sure I am on top of stuff a little better. I have also started batch processing my photos on the weekends so that I can have readily available photos for my social media feeds ahead of time and not having to take photos at the last min. This saves me so much time….good gawd.

Listening

There is really only one song I love off of Beyonce Latest album….for some reason I have been listening to it on repeat. I still don’t see this on google play….dammit. I am not a huge Beyonce Fan…I love her work ethic but not really a heavy fan. Don’t come for me though lol

 

Watching

What youtube channels are you subscribe to? I love ted talk! This one talks about homelessness. I live in Atlanta…we see it often. They stand on the corner begging for money. Sometimes I think some of these folks do it just to get money they aren’t homeless at all. I am skeptical sometimes but I do give if I feel inclined.

    I’ve been looking for my next book to read. I think I’ve found it. Congrats on hiring a new editor. I’m sure it will free up time for you to do what you do best.

    I still enjoy holding a book and turning the pages one by one. Nice you can hire someone to help with your blog. Having a editor would be wonderful.

    Beyonce does have some fabulous songs.

    I also love to read. I make sure to have time to read at least a chapter a day.

    I have never even thought about writing a book. You are definitely a very motivated person and that is awesome. I do like to read a lot of books and then listen to music while I’m doing so.

    I love book suggestions – I’m going to have to check that out 😉 and I’m so old – I haven’t heard Beyonce’s new album…now I’ll have to take a listen!

    That’s an awesome goal. I would love to try and read a book per month seeing how I’m a writer myself who also enjoys reading books. You have some great suggestions here.

    90% of the books I read are physical copies. I have a Kindle, but I rarely use it. There’s just something about holding a book in my hands and being able to physically turn and smell the pages that I like.

    I actually haven’t heard that Beyoncé song yet. Now I am going to listen to it! I always have a hard time getting around to listening to new music.

    I enjoy watching Ted Talks on You Tube. I am looking for some pod casts to start listening to. I have not listened to the new Beyonce album yet.

    One book per month sounds like a really good goal. I’ve never been able to get used to reading on a tablet at night. For some reason I can do it when it’s light out though.

    I haven’t listened to Beyonce’s new album yet. Now i feel like I need to! One book a month is totally manageable! Great idea!

    Looks like you have been really busy. I try to read 2 books a month and I’m just looking for the second one for September. Hope your associate editor helps you with all the tasks blogging related.
