29 Gifts of Gratitude to my 29 Year Old Self

So it’s my birthday today. Yay! Happy Birthday to me. I’m 29 today! I can’t believe the decade of my twenties is almost at an end. And I am happy to feel nothing but gratitude today. My twenties though not over yet have been full of surprises and certainly not what I thought they would be like when I first began this decade-long journey of self-discovery. I have learned so much, mostly the hard way but the lessons that have followed have shaped who I am and I kind of like who…

Favorite Blog Post of 2017

With this year coming to an end I find myself in a rather reflective mood. And looking back on my 2017 blogging ventures is easy because it was a big year for the old blog! I switched my site to self-hosted this year, I committed to a posting schedule, I started to work with brands, I wrote an e-book. Woah, what a year! I have learned so much about blogging, writing, collaborations, working with brands, marketing, and problem-solving. It has been a stressful and fun 2017 with lots of planning and creativity. And the reward is the…

Blog Measures you Should Track that are not just Views

Let’s talk about traffic. I mean why not, it’s not like anyone ever talks about blog traffic anymore. Am I right? Traffic is a key measure for many bloggers and while useful in helping to track blog growth it can also be a pain point and a source of disappointment. Allow me to explain.

My focus is just not there…

Mini Camping Trip – Gros Morne, Newfoundland

This year we decided to take a mini-vacation right here at home. Three nights in Gros Mourne National Park. I guess Gros Morne isn’t exactly in our backyard as it is an 8-hour drive from St. John’s, but it is still Newfoundland and it is beautiful. Gros Morne is a World Heritage site and an amazing place to visit for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, adventurers and explorers. It really is magical. A member of the Long Range Mountains, an outlying range of the Appalachian Mountains, stretching the length of the Newfoundland’s West coast…
