Marketing, Halloween, and a clean house

Via Women's Health Magazine

I think because so much of my time is spent working online digitally my personal quests have suffered.  In fact, I know this is true.  When I spend numerous hours on a computer online all day long for work, the truth is I sometimes count down to quitting time.  It stinks because while I absolutely love doing what I do for a living and the projects it affords me the opportunity to work on, I struggle to come back to my space here.

Ohgabetta is never far from my mind though.  I constantly think of blog ideas when snapping pics of my breakfast or taking in a sunset like any good blogger.  The implementation of said ideas, well that isn't always accomplished.  I feel better when I do so it's odd to me how I slip from chatting here.  If nothing else, I enjoy keeping this ol'digital journal of mine.

So, today I had a meeting get rescheduled last minute and created the opportunity to clean my house, light a fall scented candle (Maple Pumpkin!), situate laundry, and get notes caught up, to-do lists current, and breathe some life into this post.

Halloween is my fave holiday ever so I even decorated for it.  That's right, let the record show September 13th as my day of decorating for Halloween this year.  #OverzealousPartyOfOne.  I've even got the skeleton lights strung across the mantle and lit AF in the middle of a dreary, rainy perfect afternoon.

Another open tab on my computer right now is a Social Media Today article "How to Modernize Your Traditional Marketing Strategy".   It's an enlightening read on exactly what the title lends, which is refreshing since many "publications" (I use that term loosely for anyone who does this) use clickbait heavily.

I'm going to take a little time to overhaul the look of Ohagabetta.  I think a fall freshening is what we all need now and then.

Can't wait to meet you again,
M

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
