{A Room With A View}

The Christmas decorations are put away for another year and my New Year's resolutions are all organized neatly in a Word notebook document. I am pumped and ready to go! I will be sharing with you over the next couple of months some of my resolutions but today I am going to give you a preview of my plans for Footsteps in 2014. Starting in February I will begin a series called Intentional Loving: Making It Work Everyday©. The series will explore what love is and how to intentionally show love. This series will be a marathon of sorts because I am going to post every day. Yup, you read that correctly and if you are a blogger, you know what I have just committed to do is a huge! 

In March I am starting a series called Intentional Parenting: Advice From A Grandmother©. I am a grandmother of 7 wonderful but not always perfect grandchildren. I have been brainstorming with their parents on the how-tos of parenting and thought this might be of interest to you. Also, I would love to get some of your most effective parenting tips that you are passing on to your children. 

I will also be sharing my journey to find the perfect pound cake and explore how you can make your dreams a reality. A lot has changed for me in a year but I will continue to write about living with an aging parent(s) and coping with the loss of a parent. For most of us, the passing of our parents or a loved one launches us on another journey that may start with sadness but morph into a positive time of our life. I hope you continue to share the journey with me in 2014. 

Finally, I regularly announce new content by two methods. One is by posting a link on the Footsteps page on FACEBOOK and the other is through my newsletter that goes out to all Footsteps subscribers. Over the last couple of years, FB has made changes that effect the organic distribution of pages' posts. What this means is that FB wants me to pay to reach people who have "liked" Footsteps on FB. The reality is my content...thoughts and ideas...are free; I don't get paid for my content. I don't blame FB for charging for their product but what this means is, you may not receive my content through FB anymore because it doesn't make sense for me to pay FACEBOOK to send out alerts. So, if you'd like to make sure you don't miss any of the Footsteps post, just sign up for the newsletter at the top of the page.
