Gearing Up for Big Things Ahead…

I’ve struggled for a few years with reconciling what each of my three websites will focus on. What is too personal for the business blog? What belongs where? What do I need to do with this site or that site?

It has sometimes reached a point where I just didn’t write anywhere at all. Posting 140 characters on Twitter or a quick blurb on Facebook? So much easier. But as I mentioned a few weeks ago, I miss it. I’ve had a blog for 11 years now almost. I don’t want to give it up.

So while talking with my business mentor, Jeff, a few weeks ago, I brought it up. Like his website name? He has earned it, that is for sure! I can’t even begin to tell you how many times he has made me say, “Damn it, Jeff!” over the past few months, but he really does help me get to the bottom of things. The blog situation was one of them.

So moving forward, I’ve got some things to change.

Christine Tremoulet will be a working portfolio site. Mostly weddings, but sometimes I photograph other things as well. My photography identity will live there.

Hot Mama Boudoir will be all about boudoir and why I think every every mom should do a boudoir session. It will be all about sharing my super power.

BigPinkCookie will stay focused on the personal side of my life. Which I really need to work on, because my work/life balance is really skewed to lean towards work and I want it to lean back towards more LIFE.

Speaking of which, and completely inspired by Chookooloonks, I plan to work on creating a life list. This is a BIG challenge for me, since I actually seem to have no ability to dream. Ok, fine, maybe I’m exaggerating. But I need to work on dreaming. So a life list it is. You know, once I get some work done around here.

So now you know the big plan. It isn’t that far off of what I’ve been doing already, but I had to put it out there. I’m taking the first step. What do you think? As the reader, does that help you find things easier?

Oh how funny… I just made a personal blog post about my dreaming/life goals an hour or so ago. Usually I have a good amount of time to reflect, dream and plan at the end of every year, but I didn’t get the opportunity last December.

I’m ready for change, but I need to know where I’m headed before I can make meaningful change!

I struggle with organizing the topics of my various social media accounts as well. I think you’ve organized and explained them well.

I miss hearing the personal details of your life. I am on twitter, but don’t follow it much. It’s just too much gibberish for me. Facebook is the same, but I use it more because I have more relationships there.

However, I too have trouble keeping up with my personal blog. I recall the days when we’d write all sorts of fun anecdotes. Now, it’s just links and short thoughts. Tell me about your cats. Where did you get them. Why do you love them. Seriously. Or what is Jason up to? How’s Mike? Tell us more about your trip to DC? Or about other trips you’ve taken. Didn’t you go to London. More. I want more.

It’s hard, trust me I understand.

Christine… This post was very encouraging! It is all about taking the first step to moving forward, isn’t it? Hope to be following you soon by taking some new first steps of my own!

Lots of sites to run. Time consuming. I just run two, but both are for weddings. You have different elements to cover. Least it’s a sign of being successful.
