First of all, I’m back! After over a month of traveling around Australia (so much to share from that trip — stay tuned), I finally landed back in New York this past Friday. Mind you, the Bomb Cyclone that hit the East Coast last week had other plans, definitely making my return trip an interesting and anxiety-inducing one, but that’s a story for another day. But man, it feels good to be home and sleeping in my own bed.
Secondly, I have to admit, the start of 2018 has been a bit slower than what I would have liked. Admittedly, much of the first few days of the year were spent traveling and battling storms with very dramatic names and the jet lag that inevitably followed, so I can’t be too hard on myself. Instead, I’ve been forcing myself to enjoy the chance to sit back, reflect and really think about this past year and what my hopes are for 2018 — a luxury that sometimes I take for granted. You may have caught my one and only goal for the year here, that being to share much more of my writing — and that one still very much so stands — but naturally, it begs the question, what is it that I want to cultivate here on This Time Tomorrow? More importantly, what is it you want to see cultivated on This Time Tomorrow?
This, of course, got me thinking that I’ve never officially conducted a reader survey here on the blog. I know, I know. Reader surveys always call to mind random pop-up windows that you automatically want to click out of, and while I 99% of the time would agree with you there, I can’t tell you how much it would mean to me if you could fill this 20 question survey out. Many of the questions are multiple choice and all free form text responses are optional, so it really should only take 10 minutes tops of your time. Not to mention, I’d be eternally grateful. And good karma is good karma, right?
Mainly, I want to understand how I can make this more of a community of women for women — more of a two-way conversation vs. a one-sided platform. And I think we can easily build that together.
