A Boost of Motivation

Sometimes, even though I don’t realize it, my motivation flags. Because writing often involves long-term projects which require months of work before seeing results, and because, frankly, my income from those projects is modest at best, it can be easy for my gumption to dip. And although there are many ways to boost motivation, for me, one of the best is a long chat with another blogger who understands exactly what challenges and opportunities I’m facing.

So it was an absolute pleasure to meet up with April Harris recently. No, that’s not us in the photo: we were too busy enjoying our Beverly Hills salads and talking about the merits of iPhone photography to snap any pics. But in a relatively short space of time we also pondered…

…and lots more besides. In other words, an ideal mix of business strategy and the things we’re passionate about. We both agreed our energy got a big lift from the meeting.

If you haven’t yet visited April’s beautiful site which features a mix of recipes, lifestyle and travel, I encourage you to head over there now. Or, if you find yourself in need of a motivational boost, see if there’s a kindred spirit you can connect with, if only for a brief chat.

    It was such a pleasure to see you. Pauline! Thank you so much for sharing my blog with your readers too. I always come away from our chats feeling re-energised and motivated as well. I’ve been approaching my blog with a whole new vigour after our chat – and I feel full of ideas. I’m also excited to get back to writing my cook book. I can’t wait to get the bullet journal out I bought earlier this year. It’s still in its wrapper, but it won’t be for long. Thank you again!
