R&R Extra: New Year, New Direction

I'm not one to make New Year's resolutions. It's not that I don't keep them ( many times I don't), but a lot of the resolutions that I make are just continuations of the ones that I had during past years. That's why I've decided to use the beginning of the year to re-evaluate my goals. This may mean fine tuning ones that I've grown out of or mapping out ones that I've grown into. One of my biggest goals for this year is to finally leap full force into blogging, freelance writing, and novel writing. I am excited about the steps that I've already taken towards this goal; the redesign of Reasons&Roses will be unveiled soon along with a change in how content is posted to the blog. I want to have a little more freedom to write what's on my mind at the time that it "dawns in my spirit", as my grandmother used to say. In order to make this blog more conducive to that end, I've decided to try a new posting schedule. I'm going to keep the department titles as follows:

R&R Sophisticate- Fashion
R&R Aura- Beauty
R&R People+Culture- Entertainment
R&R Aware- News&Social Commentary
R&R Focus- Career/Writing Life
R&R Love+Relationships
R&R Balance- Health

In the past, I assigned each label to a specific day of the week, but now I'm going to blog Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays on whatever one of these is on my mind for that day. As the year goes on, I hope to be able to pick up more days to blog until I am able to blog multiple times each day.

To all of my readers, thank you for bearing with me during this transition. I hope that you will continue to grow with me through Reasons&Roses and that you will enjoy everything that is in store for 2012 and beyond.

Peace and Love,
