When I moved to California 2 years ago, blogging took a far back seat in my life. I missed it, and I missed the community. I’m back now, better than ever. This time around, my goals are set and growing.

Now that I’m starting over in a new place with new people, I have a clean slate upon which to build my empire. HA! Kidding aside, I am putting my 100% into this blog and this community; this is my life now, and it’s exciting! The last few days, I’ve been getting to know my social media friends again and making so many more new ones. Currently, I’m reading a lot about how to blog smarter and better, and I’m curious to see where this journey will take me.

Create a purposeful life.

Here on TCC, we have a new mission – to help you create a purposeful life while implementing cost-effective solutions every single day. By living more purposefully and more simply, we can experience and enjoy more of what’s important – our values and our dreams. No longer will they be far away. We’re turning lives into the kind dreams are made of.

Blogging Goals 2017

Networking and socializing. 

This community is awesome, and I want to be a more active contributor and friend. I say friend, because what good is a community if you don’t communicate with each other and help each other succeed? To me, you’re all friends, and I enjoy reading, watching, and sharing your content as much as I like creating it myself. There’s always something new to learn, new perspectives to be gained, and new friends to be made.

Writing and photography skills.

I’ve enjoyed creative writing my entire life; I almost took up English as my major in undergrad. However, I went the financial and healthcare route, which I also love. Now, I can focus on honing my writing skills and improving my photography techniques and this blog will be my masterpiece.

Blogging Goals 2017

More portraits aka selfies.

If you can’t tell already, I prefer to be behind the camera rather than in front of it. I feel really uncomfortable and make silly faces to deflect the awkward feelings. This year, I want to be better at embracing myself in all aspects, including in front of the camera. Now this, should be interesting.

Sprinkle positivity everywhere.

With bullying and trolling everywhere, I feel like our community should be a little sanctuary away from all of that. While we work on eradicating destructive behavior, we must start in our own homes, and I’m starting here. This blog is my new home, and there will only every be kindness and love here, and maybe a little splash of silliness and sarcasm too. It’s going to be an amazing journey, and I’m happy to have you all here.
