Hello Gold Star Revolution Squad! And Happy New Year!! 🎉
The start of a new year is a time when many people logically decide to try to change something in their lives -- establish a new habit, pursue a new goal, etc.
In fact, that is what I am going to do right now! It is time to bring a fresh start to Gold Star Revolution!!! ⭐⭐⭐
If you have been a reader of this blog in the past, you know that I have struggled with creating new blog posts.
When I started the blog, I really thought that having a Star of the Week every week was a great idea. In retrospect, I now realize that I completely underestimated people's willingness to write down a tribute to a significant person in their lives.
I didn't understand that many people don't enjoy writing or don't consider themselves to be good writers. I didn't take this factor into consideration because, in my mind, I didn't think that producing a written tribute would be a big deal -- I was only asking for a couple of paragraphs after all. But clearly I was wrong in my assumptions!!!
Also, the pace of trying to publish two posts a week was absolutely too much for me. I know that there are many bloggers who post way more than two times a week, but for me, the pace was way too frantic!
Sooooo, I am going to experiment with changing up the blog a bit to see if I can make it more workable for me. I still love the idea behind Gold Star Revolution, and I'm not ready to give up on it yet!!!
For now, I am going to go with one post every other week. I plan on posting on the first and third Fridays of the month, and also on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month.
However, to give myself some wiggle room and to hopefully give myself some time to do a bit of writing in advance, I will hold off on my next post until the third Friday of the month, i.e. January 21st. My next post after that will be on Wednesday, January 26th, and then I will post again on Friday, February 4th.
I would still LOVE to receive reader nominations for Gold Star of the Week, and, if I get any, I will still share them on Fridays as I have done in the past.
I also plan to return to posting on Instagram and Facebook. I might try to post a little more often to social media than I am to the blog, but we'll see how that goes!
If there are any topics that you want me to address here, please let me know in the comments!
Thanks for being here, dear readers! I hope that your new year has gotten off to a good start! I am happy to be back and to be starting over!!! 😁🥰🤩
