Moving Forward (Housekeeping!)

This post may contain affiliate links, by which I may be financially compensated. See Disclosures

Hi everyone! 

As the summer winds down and I start looking at projects coming up, I figured this would be a good time to reevaluate my processes. Let's have a basic housekeeping and informational post, as there will be some changes to how positively b.e.e. will be run and published. Keep reading to find out what you can expect from this point forward. 

I have really been enjoying bringing fun, unique content to you every week as a way to disrupt negativity. And I'm going to keep doing that...I'm just going to be doing it BETTER and MORE CONSISTENTLY.

What does that mean? Better and more consistently, how? Well, for one thing, I'm going to standardize the posting schedule. Previously, I'd been posting at least once per week, but sometimes two or three times per week, and not on any regular day of the week, except for definitely on Fridays with fortune cookies.

By standardizing the schedule, you will always know when new posts hit the site, AND it'll allow me to continue providing top-notch content, motivation, positivity, food for thought, and fun.

When will you post?  FRIDAYS! Every single Friday, you will have a new post. Better yet, if you're a mail list subscriber, you'll have that content delivered straight to your virtual door with a custom email message included.

How do I get those emails delivered straight to my virtual door? When you visited this site, you should have seen a pop-up form inviting you to provide an email address. If you missed the pop-up, click here,  enter your info, and you'll be squared away!

How will the new posting schedule affect your content? Instead of posting sometimes on Mondays, sometimes on other days, and always on Fridays, I'm just going to be posting Fridays. Fortune Cookie Friday posts have happened nearly every Friday since February 2018. At the time, I said I didn't know if they'd happen every Friday, but it turned out to be that way because they are a very popular feature of this blog. But if I'm posting on Fridays, what will happen to the other types of posts that I write?

Have no fear! Starting now, I will post Fortune Cookie Friday topics every other Friday. On the in-between Fridays, you'll see a post with a different inspirational, uplifting, motivational or fun message.

So starting NEXT Friday, August 24th, you'll get a fortune, and the Friday after that, you'll get something else.

There is the chance I'll post on other days if there is a special reason to, such as for holidays and special announcements, but for most weeks, it'll just be on Fridays.

Other news: Since leaving my full-time job and working as a free agent these last few months, I really hit the ground running. I've been busy with editing and proofreading work, speaking about what I do, think, and believe (in person, on video, and on podcasts), writing a book (or three), and gearing up for some really cool collaboration projects in the future. I am working on expanding my offerings both professionally and on this site. If there is anything I can help you solve with your writing, come visit my business site and talk to me about what you need.

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am  looking forward to continuing all the great work that we started. Whether it's using a fortune cookie to kick off a discussion topic or finding stories from around the world to inspire you and give you hope, I'll make sure we have a lot of fun along the way.

Thank you for joining me on this journey. This work, while going on for nearly 1 year, has really only just begun. :)

Be sure to tell your friends and family all about positively b.e.e.! You can share from here or from any of the social media links, below!

Alright, let's kick this weekend off with a dance! I love the choreography in this one! :)

Have a great weekend!

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Means of Happiness

Ok, so, as I mentioned in this post here, Fortune Cookie Friday will be an occasional feature here at positively b.e.e. I get a lot of these every time I order Chinese food or go out, plus I sometimes buy a package of them (you can get a big box here), because I like them a lot.

I find the sayings inside often start a train of thought, for me, so I may as well share those trains here and see what you have to say about it, and I invite you to share your fortune cookie fortunes with me as well!

So without further adieu, the first fortune cookie fortune on this site:

"We cannot be happy unless we think we are the means of good to others."
What do you guys think of that?

My first, knee-jerk reaction to this was: "Nah."

But that was my brain trying to get in the way of my heart. When I tell my brain to pipe down, I get so much more out of thi…

Fortune Cookie Friday: Bide Your Time

Hello fortune lovers! I hope you have had a most excellent week!

Here is today's fortune:

Bide your time, for success is near.
This one has me scratching my head a tiny bit. Is it saying to just cool my heels and wait for success to show up? I mean, to bide your time means to wait, but I've never been good at that. :) Let's explore this concept a little more.

Imagine the following scenario:

You really want to launch a new business. You develop a product, and then put it up on the internet to sell it. Do you then sit back and wait to see if it'll sell?

You're going to market it, right? You're going to place ads, tell everyone you know, maybe hold an open house or pass out flyers or business cards.

That said, there is value in patiently following the steps you need in order to be successful, and not shortcutting on any of the stages or materials.

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Roving Bee

Hello, and happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week. It is Fortune Cookie Friday, so let's see what today holds:
It's the roving bee 🐝 that gathers honey. 🍯
First of all, I'd like to start with a side note: I love how my house is a virtual scavenger hunt when it comes to fortunes. It's fun for me when I find them. I have these things tucked away in all kinds of tiny little places, and it never ceases to amaze me when I come upon one that seems to speak exactly to what I'm thinking at the time. This one was tucked away in a drawer, with a rusty old paperclip on it. I have no idea what it used to be clipped to, by the way, but I took the clip off to take the photo, and it left those imprints on the paper. I don't even know how long I've had this one, but it has probably traveled with me through several moves over sever…
