icecream in hand against yellow with text overlay*kindly note, this post may contain affiliate links to some awesome things I love + recommend // read my full disclosure here - thank you!

Currently I am...

...watching series two of Homeland. It keeps me glued to the story, but oh boy does it touch some nerves too. Going to need some other tv viewing though soon – recommendations welcome!

...learning about drop-shipping and hosting on Shopify. A whole new ball game to Etsy, that’s for sure!

...researching the technicalities of podcasting – of which there are many, but am super grateful to have Jacey Verdicchio’s absolutely brilliant and detailed step-by-step Start Your Podcast guide to lead me through. I’ve got a long ways yet to go before I even publish anything, but it is something I feel capable in doing and way more in alignment than video. I knew my experience in radio would come back into the mix sometime!

...looking at email delivery systems and subscription set ups. I’m really taken with the whole Feedly Team Newsletters idea, but not sure how that might/could work in a non-corporate setting. Of course I can go it alone, but the nice thing with FTNs is the streamlining of delivery. Pondering, pondering…

...building up a new Pinterest account on the side to get a taste for this new enterprise I am being drawn to develop.

...on that note I am working my way towards making a return to Instagram. Going to approach it from a different angle though this time. Less personal, more business/brand focused. At least at first. I’d love to make a return to participating in the Fat Mum Slim's Photo-a-Day challenge at some point, but my experience this past half year has somewhat tarnished my enthusiasm. But we’ll see. Never say never, right?

...signing off for the summer. This time last year I decided to lean into the fact that having family at home all summer was not going to make keeping to my usual schedule so very easy to continue and that the best thing would be to sign off from blogging and much of my usual social commitments. And so I did. Some folks would be utterly freaked out by this idea, but for me it made total sense.

The past little while I have been increasingly looking forward to having some time off from this space so as to take a business retreat and plan out what is next for Ginger*Urchin. There are some new things I'd like to try over the next season (see the above for an inkling) and I need some space to focus on figuring out the nuts and bolts of making these happen.

So for now this will be my last entry for the next little while.

At least until September when school and schedules are back in place. While I won't be writing here I will be keeping in contact with my list, updating them with developments as they evolve and sharing sneak peeks into what I am up to. If you are curious and would like to stay in touch, head on over here to sign up.
