I just got home from San Diego where I attended the Traffic & Conversion Summit… just in time to celebrate Valentine\’s Day, which is my favorite holiday of the year!
I have a standing tradition to take the entire day off to celebrate ALL of the things I love in my life.
It\’s freezing here in Tennessee (especially after all that San Diego sunshine, lol) so I\’m curled up in a big sweater enjoying a hot coffee, thinking over the things I want to celebrate this year.
You came to mind, of course. Actually it was awhile back that you came to mind. It was a random association. I noticed on Facebook that Felicia Slattery and her husband renewed their vows one Sunday morning, and it made me think of us. That may sound odd (lol). Let me explain…
A vow renewal ceremony is a way to declare your continuing commitment. That\’s why it made me think of you, of our relationship and my work here. I feel like I haven\’t been pulling my end lately. It made me realize I needed to renew my commitment, and perhaps even my vows – or what you can expect from me going forward.
So now you get the connection, right? Good, because sometimes my mind can twist and turn in some of the strangest ways, lol.
I mentioned I just got back from the the Traffic & Conversion Summit event. It was good. There were some interesting things, some odd things, and definitely some things that made me THINK. I\’m still sorting through my notes, but I\’ll share those with you in one of my next few posts.
One of the things I decided (totally unrelated to the event content – well, sort of) is that I want to revive my passion and enthusiasm for ClickNewz, and for sharing more details about what I\’m working on online – what\’s working and what\’s not, what I\’m changing, things I\’m testing, etc. I\’ve been really lax about that lately, and I apologize.
Another thing I decided (definitely unrelated to what I learned at the event, lol) is that I want to go back to having more FUN here at ClickNewz.
Over the last year or so I\’ve leaned more heavily toward my niche blog, and really poured myself into growing that audience. I truly enjoy being “Low Carb Traveler” – often more than I enjoy being Lynn Terry! lol
I realized the reason, or the big distinction. It\’s because I really let my hair down there and ENJOY letting my personality shine. And because it\’s more a “lifestyle business” (a term I DID learn at the event), and that… I like that.
Some of this could use more explaining, so I\’ll let that unfold over the next few posts as I share my notes from the event, and also as my thoughts & ideas solidify a bit more. For now, I\’ll just say… I still love you. And: Happy Valentines Day!
Valentine\’s Day is not just another day of the year. It\’s not a commercialized money-sucking holiday. It\’s not “Singles Awareness Day” either.
Valentine\’s Day is a day to celebrate all of the things you love in life. It\’s a perfect day to celebrate appreciation. Enjoy!
p.s. While I\’ve been quiet here on the blog lately, I\’ve been staying in contact by email – so make sure you\’re subscribed and not missing out on the “behind the scenes” updates. I\’m also very actively involved in my Private Brainstorming Group here at ClickNewz, so when you don\’t see me here on the public side… it\’s because I\’m busy brainstorming in the group.
