A month and a half ago, I set up a donate button through Paypal so readers can 'buy me a drink' if you have enjoyed my writing and/or if it's helped you in some way.
When I posted about it on the blog and social media, I didn't know how it would be received. Would people take it seriously?! Well, it's been received so positively! And people have bought me drinks! Thank you! I'm genuinely so appreciative that this little spot on the Internet does make a difference to many.
Last night I paid someone to do something for this blog - it's time it grew up and got a makeover. So your money has gone to that. I've got some ideas for a new theme. And soon I will set up a Patreon Account - I am sorry I haven't done so already. There's lots to do but the weeks fly by and the the weekends aren't long enough - so stay tuned for a different look and way to support me.
I haven't been in such a great place recently. It's nothing to be alarmed about - I'm just reevaluating what makes me happy. The stark contrast between the different types of work I do has taken its toll. I've found myself in tears on occasion, and this week I had to be alone for an hour - albeit in a fancy restaurant. My health is definitely suffering.
Music's been helping of course. This song particularly resonates - my "reason I get out of bed" is my writing, speaking, helping people.
So it's time to get planning the ways I can make my talents and passions really work for me. There's a long list of things I'm about to write about, I'm doing work for a social media client, and I got plans to collaborate with awesome people.
Thank you for believing in me. Cheers.
