    I think you’re spot-on when you say that there’s no way to avoid the big corporations when it comes to online sharing – of any kind. Well, unless you’re some sort of multi-talented computer programmer who can build stuff from scratch but then how would anyone find you? πŸ™‚

    I’m slowly coming to the realization that I have finite resources –…[Read more]

    I had a very short run of sending out short stories by mail, Tonia, lo these many years ago. It was three, I think, over the course of the summer….but even that felt like an immense strain on my resources – ha!. I would love to figure out a way to do it in a more sustainable fashion….a written newsletter would be the very best of all worlds as…[Read more]

    I just went scouting in the cobwebby places of my email and there you were….relegated to Spam…the horror!!! So I have your latest missive, but none before that…i imagine they were jettisoned into the ether without my ever having seen them. I really should check the spam more often — so sorry!!!!

    I’m thrilled that you’re following your…[Read more]

    Are you concerned about the address bit that appears at the bottom of the newsletter, Michelle? I use MailerLite as my provider and have evaded putting in my actual address…..

    Territory of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy <—- true story
    The Borderlands <— we live on the Canada/US border
    Ontario, Canada

    I'm pretty sure you can do that…[Read more]

    I don’t love writing newsletters either….I feel like it’s just one more intrusion into people’s lives and so have put this ridiculous amount of pressure on myself to be magnificent. :).

    But, as you say, without social media, one isn’t left with a huge amount of options.

    I think you should follow your distraction, Lesley…there’s a lot…[Read more]

    I will happily follow along with the journaling/prompts portion…..there’s always an opportunity to learn new things. πŸ˜‰

    I clearly missed the boat on the Susannah Conway thing…which is just as well as when it first appeared in my email letterbox, I knew it wasn’t for me. I only considered it again on your recommendation and so I’m quietly amused to see that it no longer resonated. I feel like my idea/thoughts/visions for whatever it is I’m doing — and I’m no…[Read more]

    I had to leave about halfway through to tend to family things…..but I have a half page of jottings and will finish watching the video tomorrow and expand on what I already have. I must say that i absolutely love Yarrow’s approach to things…she’s definitely an excellent example of the way I wish to move through the online world. xo

    I can’t even tell you how much i love this metaphor, Dori. That was my favourite takeaway from the workshop as well and you’ve just leveled it up even more .:) xo

    I’m here….just finished my tea ;)….so good to know we’re here together

  • mel posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    I love the page, thank you, Lesley!

    I’ll be popping in and out…I’m going to start watching a bit earlier as I have some family stuff to contend with in the middle of the session — will try and catch up with everyone at the co-working portion of the program πŸ™‚

    Oh Lesley! I’m so glad I happened to be on my computer when your email invitation came through!

    I’m sorry to hear that your interest in stationery has waned…but can absolutely understand. These things ebb and flow and perhaps you’re simply moving into a different iteration of your creative work.

    It’s lovely to be back here again….and,…[Read more]

    Dori!!! What a delight is was to find the notification for this in my inbox! I hadn’t realized we were up and running again.

    More of a delight is to read your update….I’m glad that your Chris is home and while I definitely understand your reservations about the Branson-mobile, I imagine what a deeply fulfilling experience it must have been for…[Read more]

    oh, Dori! what a muddle indeed! you’re in my thoughts and my heart…and hoping for some peace and clarity for you both.xoxo

  • mel replied to the topic Dori's Teatime Journal in the forum journals 5 years, 6 months ago

    oh dear…i’m very late to this after finding it increasingly difficult to motivate myself to turn on my computer!

    i’m so sorry to hear of your husband’s lay-off, Dori. I can really appreciate what you’re going through — my husband has been through some really difficult years starting from an injury at work right before our youngest’s first…[Read more]

  • mel replied to the topic Lesley's biz diary… in the forum journals 5 years, 6 months ago

    oh, my – Lesley! horrid, horrid news!

    i know what you mean about money/lack being the point of motivation — i have a strong feeling that much of what holds me back is because i’m coming from that place, instead of a place of Overflow. i think it’s the source of much of my self-sabotage and ‘failure to thrive’.

    ’tis a muddlesome thing.

    Perhaps it’s something in the air….:)

    I’m doing a lot of sifting and sorting too, these days — the pendulum swinging wildly between wanting to ‘retire from public life’ to investing in coaching and setting definite plans/goals/intentions. I sometimes feel as if I’m having the same discussions with myself, over and over again. *sigh*

    I hope…[Read more]

    this is a truly lovely gift you’re offering — to *not* make a big issue over a ceremonial if that’s what seems fitting for each of us. I know I’m not naturally inclined toward grand gestures of ritual and […]

  • mel commented on the post, like a flower…, on the site Rosehip Business 5 years, 6 months ago

    i recently invested in a session with a mentor regarding social media (mostly targeted for writers because we’re inherently rubbish at this sort of thing!) and some things she said and suggested made absolute […]
