On Memorial Day (and Veterans’ Day) many cities display a Field of Flags.

I love the “Field of Flags’ idea! You too? 

Current pursuits: I’ll continue to post about communication issues and my wishlist/pursuits…exercise, travels, DIY wishlist. I probably won’t be posting DIY home or jewelry projects anytime soon. I am currently staying with the parents until I find a new, paying communication/marketing job. Thus, I have no space for DIYs (jewelry, fashion, interior design…) Someday, I’ll get to all the goals!

The Best Laid Plans …

In order to find out if blogging can help me achieve balance and help to identify goals, I have to actually, you know, BLOG. I have to act on my plans.

A while back, I crafted a blogging schedule to help me in this adventure. I told myself I should write about specific topics on specific days. This hasn’t happened yet, so I have revised my schedule to something more achievable…

Best Laid Plans…” schedule

Blog at least once a week about life and the things I love: DIY, yoga, reading, communication best practices and communication issues.

As a communications/marketing professional, I believe in publishing schedules and in the power of brand. (This scheduling and effort always helps me accomplish more at work.)

I need advice from experienced bloggers and experienced people, I think.

Question: Will the workplace tactics of scheduling and branding help me deliver a blog? Can a blog truly help me identify goals and grow? How can I make my blog a place for those things?

Best laid plans, indeed…
