Before we get into the nitty gritty of today’s post, I would like to address the elephant in my corner of the Internet: the blog’s different look. If you were following along with me on Twitter yesterday, then you already know that I decided to switch to self-hosted WordPress. In short, doing so allows the writer to own the content that they produce. It also allows for a lot more creative freedom in terms of the layout and customization of the actual website. This is where my problems began. To spare you all the boring details and myself some renewed feelings of rage, know that how the blog looks today, is not how it will look forever. I ran into serious technical problems (shoutout to the Siteground customer service team – you’re fabulous) that prevented me from properly using the theme I wanted. Changes are coming, in more ways than one, starting with today’s blog post.
Welcome back for another update of my 101 goals in 1001 days list. To see my original list and my other update posts, check ’em out here: original, update 1 and update 2. I’m not as satisfied with the progress I’ve made since my last update, but hey, that’s real life sometimes. With the rebrand of the blog launching NEXT WEEK, there are a few things that will get completed at that time. However, there are more exciting things coming soon that will help keep me accountable for the rest of the things on this list. Fingers crossed!
Welcome back, friends! Today I’m sharing the third installment in my Bloggers Who Inspire series. Like in my posts featuring Erica and Savannah, I interviewed today’s lovely lady about motivation and inspiration and will be sharing her responses with you all. Who am I featuring, you may ask? The genuine lady boss behind both But First, Coffee and Caffeinate and Conquer, Kallie. Like in the other posts, I’ll let Kallie speak for herself. Without further ado, here’s my interview:
In today’s day and age, it is rare that you come across a student of any level that says they are not stressed, concerned or anxious about one thing or another. To some degree, stress can be a good thing, even a motivator. However, I’ve found that I need to recognize when those opportunities arise that will allow me to be successful in taking advantage of my stress. I have read many a book and listened to many a podcast about this topic so I feel confident in that I know what I’m talking about. That being said, I’m not an expert. I hope you come away with a useful trick or two and feel more reassured by your stress level.
