I hope that 2018 is treating you well so far. I firmly believe that you are the determiner of how life treats you, so treat yourself well!
I have a couple of hugeish announcements. At least they are huge to me.
I am moving. As many of you know, I’ve spent the last 5 years, give or take, in North Dakota. I’ve loved my time in the frozen tundra, but it’s time to head back to the concrete swamp that is Houston, TX.
I realize that as members of a digital world and a virtual community you might not quite see how this affects you at all. But, it affects my available time, my filming capabilities, and my mental well being. Exaggerate much? Yes. Yes, I do.
What I’m trying to say is that my life is about to be full of things like desperately running through the house to clean up after my zoo of animals so a stranger can poke through my cabinets and even under my bed if they so choose. Whatever it takes to make a sale! It means not having a weirdly placed “filming studio” in my basement, right at the foot of the stairs because let’s be honest, that’s not what most people are looking for in real estate.
That doesn’t mean I won’t be filming at all, just not putting together anything polished, more like leaning my iphone against a bolster in my tiny studio and filming at odd angles. Not a big deal really, and might even be fun. But it does mean that the ideas and plans surrounding new full scale online programs are being put on hold temporarily.
Which brings me to my next announcement:
I’ll be revamping my current website and course/program site. It will be streamlined to make the user interface easier to navigate.
I’ve experimented with several different platforms over the past year and haven’t been completely happy with any of them. I want everything to be available in one place, easy to access, easy to use.
I have several ideas about what to do with this new improved site, but I really want to know what you would like to see. What would you like for me to offer?
I’m including a survey below. Please fill it out and let me know how we can practice together in the future. YOU CAN ALSO CLICK HERE TO COMPLETE THE SURVEY
You can share this email (as well as the survey) with your friends and family so they can practice with us too - let’s expand our community!
While all this is happening behind the scenes, I might be a bit flighty with content. I have good intentions, I plan to continue to put out the Practice Journal and new Youtube content if possible, but I might not make it on a weekly basis. Let’s see how it rolls.
I’m looking forward to practicing with you even more in 2018!
** p. s. - I've been posting quick tips, tricks and ideas - ie really short videos - on Instagram lately. My intention is to keep this up and even increase it. So if you don't currently follow me at @jackieblackwellyoga, you should! These videos are sometimes on Facebook as well, but Facebook has changed their algorithm again, and has in fact declared that they will even further limit the visibility of "businesses" on your news feed, so you probably won't see them unless you visit the Jackie Blackwell Yoga page.
