Farewell 2011 | See you in the New Year

This blog has been a great many things for me: an escape, a tool, and recently, a community. 
It's taken me a while to figure out my niche in this big wide world of blogging. I've written many silly pointless posts, grasping for some purpose and/or traction. I still feel as though I'm floundering, however 2011 has been a good year for me and this little hobby of mine.

Here are just  a few of the many exciting things that happened this year:

-I became a writer as part of the She Seeks team!
-Advertisements in JOIE Online Magazine
-Created & launched 2 online e-courses: Blogging & Singing
-Partnered with Antioch Temecula for a follow-up to their Dating Series
-More collaboration [20+ writers!] and guest bloggers on many topics, from spirituality to beauty secrets
-Developed 2 staple segments: Sundays are for Worship & Friday's at JM

So what's next for JM? 2012 holds many a goal and dream. Things will change around here. I want this small space to be a place of obvious community. A space where you and I feel safe, encouraged, and inspired

There will be new segments, features, downloads [!!], focuses, spins and twists. I'm finding my niche a little bit at a time and I think 2012 will prove that. 

I'm a girl who wants to conquer the world through words and music; or at least make a dent in it. I'm not sure how that will play out in this next year, but I am hopeful. 

So this is farewell my friends, for 2011
I am spending the last weeks of this year re-designing this pretty place and eating and laughing way too much with friends and family. 

See you in the New Year! Come see me January 1st! 


The only important thing about design is how it relates to people.

It is not daily increase but daily decrease; hack away the unessential.
Your best work is your expression of yourself. Now, you may not be the greatest at it, but when you do it, you’re the only expert.
