I love the idea of introducing this website like it’s coming out of the belly of the whale, like I’m flying out of the 🌌 blowhole of depressionGood idea here for a poem or short story. Or nature essay, even. 🌌, like I’ve reclaimed who I am and brought some coherency back to my workview-lifeview, so I can get on to bigger problems,

Listing 💙 31 Ways to Shout-out My Blog
The idea with this list is that, in April, I create a daily social media rotation that involves one shout-out per month per feed, so I’m never bombarding my family, friends, or niche fans;
Or alternatively, I engage in good ol’ “just go somewhere, be nice to people, and ask to interview them for your blog” method… after all, I’m going to have to interview for DYL anyway. Interviews are on the event horizon, ready to rip my atoms off my 😱 face.

🍑 Upgrade this idea! 🍑 This would no doubt work best if it was also supplemented with monthly, weekly, and/or daily “non-shout” or quiet posts on all these media fees, too.I could do 2 daily “non-shouts” for Insta-Tumblr, 7 weekly “non-shouts” for the third daily Twitter-Goodreads-PicsArt-Reddit-Pinterest-Facebook-Amazon review, and the remaining 11, I’d update monthly…?
✨ Upcycle Idea ✨ Purchase two 2018 calendars,Calendars were on sale at Barnes and Noble and the paper store? There’s also Amazon… then use markers to color in the logos for all the social media on each calendar. One calendar represents “shout-outs,” while the other represents “non-shouts” for monthly posts. Hang the calendars on the bathroom door,One above the other?, or instead make them a book, then try out the idea with a trial run in April. Still update Instagram daily.
✨ Make it Digital ✨ Since PicsArt comes with a 2018 calendar frame,It’s probably easier to use that feature on my iPad than my iPhone, if it comes to this… I make my own calendar digitally, then plaster it on my computer as my wallpaper.Another advantage of this idea is I can share the calendar on this blog, too… Although I can do that with the paper upcycle method: just take photos.
Prewriting 🤮 What Do I Want People to Get?
What’s the purpose of this blog? What do I want readers to get from reading about my Designing Your Life journey? How could I extend that journey to others? Why would I want to extend that journey out to others? Shouldn’t I just extend it one person at a time, carefully, mindfully? Is quantity truly greater than quality? If one human being improved the lives of three human beings, wouldn’t we all improve significantly? Is it time to show DYL to Chase, or should I instead focus on my personal journey? What about another reread of the Kindle book? What about purchasing a paper copy of the book? What do I want people to get after I’m done reviewing DYL? What do you make of this sequin bunny rabbit with a squirrel mug next to it?
Why did I maintain my love for glitter and sequins, when so many others grew out of this joy?
Meaning Making 👌 3 Essential Questions
- If I could create any reality, which would I create?—and don’t I have that creative power in this safe space called a blog?
- How can this blog support my writing?—because what I truly want to share with others… stories. 😉
- Could my treatment plans and/or projects become bridges for others to cross as they move from depression and/or anxiety to happier lives?—and if my methods could help someone else recover from these illnesses—to live joyfully on the spectrumOr off the spectrum… neurotypicals are welcome, too, if you must embrace typicalness!—how do I share them?
