November Happiness, that sounds like a lovely post idea.
I choose to speak of November Happiness because one of the things I am most looking forward to is having all three of my kids home, under the same roof at the same time.
I have done these types of post two times before. Those were Looking Back on September and The October Plan and Reflecting on August And Achieving September Goals. A few really fabulous things have come out of those posts.
- I have been able to connect with my readers (i.e. supporters) in a new way.
- Reflecting on the prior month very much helps to bring clarity to what is next.
- I have inspired others to do the same.
That alone brings me much “November Happiness.”
So let’s dig in.
October kicked off with a belated celebration of the Jewish holidays with my family. As many of you know, I was raised in a Jewish household and followed the religion for much of my young life. As I got older, my views expanded and my connection to Judaism decreased. However, I still think that it is incredibly important that our children understand that which is their heritage so we celebrate the holidays in our own way. Generally, we observe the traditions, review what the holiday is about and why many Jewish people believe what they do. As our kids have gotten older (18, 20 & 22) they make their own decisions about what religion (if any) that they wish to follow. They (and I) align with Buddhism but that is a completely different post.
Our home renovation continues to move on…it has been a slow but exciting process.
My other big focus was writing new programs for my coaching clients and I also had my Iridology students. If you are interested in Iridology, the reading of the Iris of the eye for hints on health and how to repair health, then check out those classes HERE.
As I did all of this I also reflected on my messaging. What I mean by this is the clarity that I offer to others about what I do and how I can help them. I think it is a little muddled so I will be working on that.
I teach natural health classes, am a Wellness/Relationship/Parenting Coach and a Lifestyle Blogger/Freelance Writer & Speaker.
I am guessing that after reading the above statement you can see exactly what I mean.
As I look at November, I will be working on the clarity of my message. Additionally, I am doing quite a bit of batch blogging. What that means is that I choose a subject and write several posts on that topic or related topics.
Batch Blogging is very beneficial for many reasons.
- I can dig into a subject on a much deeper level when I am writing several blog posts.
- I avoid the overly long posts that can become overwhelming to the reader.
- Several related subjects can come up and be explored in an additional linked post.
- The reader can gain additional knowledge.
- Several posts on a related subject are very beneficial for domain authority.
- My writing time is more focused and therefore more efficient.
There is so much more I can say about batch blogging. Additionally, I have plenty of tips to share. Watch for it in the Business & Blogging Section of this blog. Better yet…

On other news this month I will be releasing another interesting business blog series, I am introducing more mommas and poppas in the parenting series, I will be talking about the things you can do to improve your health and I am very exciting to share bunches of holiday tips, recipes + the inside scoop on the LA Baby Show. I am sure there will be more too…it will be fun to see what unfolds.
