plans for August


Okay.  Tiny Twig has been somewhat quiet over the month of July (broken computer, summertime schedule, etc.), but we are excited for August to roll around.  Here are some things to look forward to.

Monday, July 30th–BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

Then, August is going to be a whole month of The No Brainer Blog–which is the title of my next eBook, due out in September.  I’ll be posting each weekday about blogging–ways to build, ways to grow, ways to design, best practices, etc.  I think that bloggers of all levels will find valuable information in the month long series.  I can’t wait to share with you what I’ve learned about blogging with heart, blogging with passion, blogging with a purpose–and doing it well.

I’ll be going “dark” August 4-12, as our family takes a week at the lake every summer.  There is no cell signal or Internet, so I’ll be reading, writing, playing, and watching the Olympics with my boys.  I’ll still have posts scheduled on Tiny Twig, but will not be active in the comments, on Twitter, FB, or other social media outlets.  I’ll miss the interaction with y’all, but I am excited for the uninterrupted time away from technology.  I think it does the mind and body good to kick back to the “good ole days” every once in awhile.

So, see you Monday for my big announcement–and I so hope your weekend is full of all kinds of wonderful things.


  • Can’t wait to hear the news! And yes, I agree: we need to walk away from our computers as much as we can during the summer. No better way to unwind than enjoy some time near ANY shoreline!

    Can’t wait for the big announcement -bet it’s good! You can totally see in the photo that your oldest son favors you and your middle favors your husband. Have a great time on your unplugged vacation!

  • Great stuff all around, the news, the blog series and the lake. It’s a beautiful thing that there are still pockets of solitude and silence in our world, in the countryside or at the lake, where we can TRULY get away and rejuvenate.

    Coming from just taking a weekend ‘away’ from technology – enjoy it!!! If my life didn’t require being in front of a computer so much I’d be verrrrry tempted to ditch my computers and whatnot almost entirely.
