So many changes for The Middle Years Journey Blog! Midlife is a time of transition, growth, and taking chances. Deciding to “rebrand” was a change in the right direction as I had mentioned on my “Under Construction” post. It’s something I had been planning on doing for months but was too afraid to pull the trigger. Part of the midlife journey is allowing yourself to embrace new challenges and step outside your comfort zone. I have been comfortable for far too long. It’s time to turn it up a notch!
As promised, I made exciting changes to the mix!
The Middle Years Journey Midlife Lounge Facebook Group – This group will be a space where we can interact, meet new people, give advice, and grow as a community. I will post motivational quotes, memes, and questions of the day. Feel free to invite your friends to join! The more, the merrier! Just click on the “Free Community” tab at the top of the web page!
The Middle Years Journey “Online” Book Club – Instead of merely suggesting books for you to read, I decided to take it a step further. Now, my book club will be virtual! I will post my book selection at the beginning of each month. This will provide you plenty of time to finish before we move on. We will discuss the books throughout the month on our Goodreads group board. I will also incorporate “virtual web chats” via teleconference. Each person will be able to log into the conference from their computer or cell phone. The “Tele Chats” will give us an opportunity to see each other and talk about the books in greater detail. Click on the “Book Club” tab above to read more about it and create your FREE Goodreads account.
Newsletters – I will send out a monthly newsletter outlining happenings on the blog, book club, and podcast. Be sure to sign up on the homepage, so you don’t miss out! My first FREE giveaway will happen this month, so you don’t want to miss it!!
