It's Life Whump Day Wed

Whump Day Wed: I don’t always like to talk on the phone

September 6, 2017

I am finally getting back to blogging in real time. I miss the old days of blogging so I thought I would bring it back with a new series that I will reveal on here. This will take the place of business articles that I normally do on Wed. Since I am separating my blog and my business I thought I would start a new series so that you can keep up with my life a little better. Of course the best way to keep up with me is to read my newsletter that comes out every Tuesday but this will be a follow up of that newsletter that comes out on Wed. This will be a list of what I am doing for the week (like a midweek check in), what I’m reading for the week (a book or blog post article I came across), what I’m listening to, and what I’m watching. I will call it my Do, Read, Watch, Listen segment. I may do all four or do two or three but you will get at least two of these a week. So let’s get started….

Do

I am going to be spending September in planning mode to make sure I have content ideas for the rest of the year ready to go. I have also started to batch process my pictures on weekends and do more things while I have downtime. I want to use up every bit of my time as much as possible. While in the carline I utilize that time to clean up all of my social media channels. I am also starting to hone in on the ones that make me the most money. I will also be learning about Facebook ads and targeting efforts a bit more. September is all about planning and doing

Read

I just read this blog post on The Crunchy Mommy about not answering phones. I know that texting can be a lot so that’s why I love it…get to the point. When most people call you they go all around the bush and most of the time I hardly have anything to say once I’ve said what I called about. I am a mom and a business owner I don’t have time to talk on the phone. Most of the time I will see you calling and I will ignore the call because I am doing something else and I don’t have time to get caught up on what you have going on because at the moment it’s not important to me.

Watch

The new Humans of New York series is the truth. I love seeing it in action just as much as I love reading what the captions say. I think this is one series that I will tune in for. It should have been on netflix so I can just run through the entire first season but I will try to catch it as much as I can when I remember. The first episode was nice!

Listen

 

This my new jam! My daughter …yes the 8 year old introduced me to it. It’s catchy and makes me feel young lol.

Now it’s your turn. What are you doing this week, listening to, reading, or watching?

    I am an introvert so when I am having a quiet day I tell people to text me if they need me. It helps to have down time for me.

    I’m working my butt off like always! LOL I’m currently completely down the Netflix wormhole, and I’m loving it!

    OMG, I love this! I will NOT answer the phone if I don’t know who it is, and even then, I’ll have to weigh how much I really want (or don’t) to be on the phone. LOL

    I don’t do ‘pick my brain’ chats either in person or by phone either. I am a long time Life/Career Coach and Social Media Consultant, everyone wants free answers, free advice and free resources. Sign a contract which I will email you, pay your fee and then we can talk, for 30 minutes. Plain and Simple.

    As for blogging it’s not planning I need, I have content stacked up for a lifetime, it’s the actual TIME to get those posts live – editing, optimizing and watermarking event or travel photos, writing, coding, then marketing and promoting – I haven’t had much along the way of time to actually write.

    Humans of New York is definitely the stuff, you are definitely going to enjoy watching them.

    It’s nice to bring back just blogging about life and your thoughts. That’s definitely something to look forward to!

    I really enjoy reading the Humans of New York online and it’s nice to see that there’s a show that I can watch for that! I always plan my posts ahead, it gives me so much time to focus on other things for the blog.

    I almost NEVER answer my phone, especially if it is Unknown. I would so much rather text!

    I am determined to finish reading the last book on my summer reading list. It is Lisey’s Story by Stephen King. I got it at a second hand bookstore and I found the synopsis interesting. I plan to start one more niche specific blog and I am leaning towards chronic illness as the main driver. My target publish date is January 2018.

    I am the total opposite, I would rather have a 5 minute call instead of texting for 20 minutes BUT I don’t chit chat unless it’s one of those random calls at night that my girlfriends and I will do and usually start off with “Whatcha Doing”. Oh and if I call you better answer LOL
