Recently, readers have inquired about my approach to blogging. Specifically, folks want to know what my writing and editing process looks like for a typical blog post.

Below is what my writing process looks like from start to finish.

  1. Ideas come to me in the shower, when I’m exercising, driving, doing the dishes, etc.
  2. When an idea emerges, I try to write it down in my journal immediately. Otherwise, the idea slips away.
  3. From there, I create a mind-map— a diagram used to visually organize information— and write a rough draft in my journal.
  4. Then, it’s time to transfer my journal notes/draft to Evernote.
  5. On average, I revise my rough drafts three to five times (sometimes more, sometimes less). The revision process depends on the piece.
  6. After I have a final draft, I copy and paste the content into a Word document and save it to my desktop.
  7. Then, I upload the Word document to Grammarly.
  8. Grammarly is where I do a final round of edits, and I often end up adding more content to the post.
  9. When I’m done editing the post, I export the Grammarly draft to my Desktop.
  10. Sometimes, Logan, my husband, reviews the final draft for content (especially if the post is sensitive). Most of the time, Logan catches odd turns of phrase or suggests adding additional thoughts or transitions to the post.
  11. If Logan recommends substantial changes to my post, I review the essay in Grammarly again.
  12. I read the final version one more time.
  13. Now it’s time to format the post on the backend of my website and in MailChimp. This can take 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how many photos or links I’ve included in the post.
  14. Once I’ve tested the links in WordPress and MailChimp, I press the publish button.
  15. Then, I share the post on social media.
  16. Finally, I drag and drop the completed essay from my desktop into my final edits folder in Dropbox.

Typically, each blog post takes 8 to 15 hours to complete from start to finish. I usually spend the same amount of time—sometimes more—on my photo roundups. Obviously, I don’t have to edit words. However, traveling to a location, taking photographs, editing images, and then deciding what images to share online takes time.

I decided to share my happy links monthly rather than weekly because finding good reads is time intensive. I’d guess that my last link roundup took 40 hours to pull together (that includes the time to read books and articles, reflection, writing, etc.) Also, compiling a monthly reading list forces me to share the best of the best with readers.

As you can see, there are a lot of steps in my writing and editing process (more than I realized). Blogging is time intensive, and I’ve chosen to keep up the practice because it’s fun and rewarding, and it forces me to work on my writing and photography skills. The only way to get better at both is through practice and accountability.

Thank you for reading my words and supporting the blog! I’m grateful.

With gratitude,
Tammy

PS: Registration for A Simple Year—a course designed to help you simplify your life gently and with purpose—is open! And speaking of living simply, I’m speaking at the Tiny House Jamboree in Arlington, Texas at the end of October. Hope to see you there!

For the last four years, I’ve contributed to A Simple Year: Twelve Months of Guided Simplicity. The course is the brainchild of my friend Courtney Carver—founder of bemorewithless.com—and I’m thrilled to be part of A Simple Year 2018.

Here’s a brief overview of the course:

Imagine what it would feel like to breathe a little easier, and feel lighter moving through your home and life. How would things change if you started taking steps to be less overwhelmed, busy, sick, or tired?

If there was less on your plate, fewer decisions to be made, less stress about money and relationships, could you be happier, healthier, and feel more at ease?

Living simply provides so many benefits, but sometimes it can be challenging to maintain a commitment to long-term change. If you look forward to living with less stuff, less stress and less obligation so you can have more time, money and energy to pursue what means most to you, choose to live a simple year.

A Simple Year was designed to help you simplify your life gently and with purpose. You’ll learn something new each month and focus on what matters most with a simplicity advocate that specializes in topics like clutter, food, money, relationships, and busyness.

This is what you can expect from your 12 months of guided simplicity:

  • New content every month all year long (4 articles + video or audio lesson)
  • Live monthly webinars with recordings provided
  • Private Facebook Group (optional) to ask questions and connect with a like-minded community
  • Optional homework assignments with surprise bonuses for completing your homework
  • Love, support, connection, and encouragement
  • 30-day refund policy. If within 30 days, you decide A Simple Year isn’t right for you, we’ll send a full refund, no questions asked.

Because we encourage you to go at your own pace, we’ll give you a PDF at the end of the program with all of the content, and links to the webinars, so you can revisit the material anytime.

Read the full course syllabus, FAQs, and become A Simple Year member here.

I hope you’ll join us in 2018!

With gratitude,
Tammy

Fall is here! The temperatures are starting to drop, and the light is changing. I’m going to miss the bright summer evenings, but I won’t miss the smoke from the wildfires. I hope fall will bring cooler temperatures and rain to our region.

Fall also means that my husband, Logan, has an overly full schedule. In addition to working a full-time job, he’s teaching part-time at a local community college. Logan loves his day job and teaching, and that’s why he’s working crazy hours. Since Logan works in the evenings, it’s just me and the cats on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. Since I’m alone in the evenings—and not spending as much time on my phone—I decided to restructure my evening routine.

During weeknights, here’s what my routine typically looks like:

—I turn off my computer and put my smartphone on silent at 6:00 p.m. To unwind, I play with the cats, do mobility exercises, go for a walk, or read.

—Then, it’s time to reheat dinner. On Sundays, we’ve been preparing our meals for the week, and it’s saved us time and money. For example, last night I reheated Thai curry, and it was delicious. Other favorite dinners (and lunches) from the past week included:

  • black beans wrapped in corn tortillas with avocados, carrots, spinach, and hot sauce
  • coconut rice, chicken, and green beans

—After I eat, I read a book in my POÄNG chair or in bed. My cats, Christie and Elaina, know when it’s reading time. They either battle for a spot on my lap, or Elaina will snuggle with me in bed. Without the distraction of my smartphone, I’ve been flying through books. Over an eight-day period, I read three non-fiction books (including The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson, Bored and Brilliant by Manoush Zomorodi, and Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown.

—When I end my work day, I leave my phone in my purse or on my desk. I still use my phone as my alarm clock because it’s challenging to hit snooze if my alarm is on my desk. However, I purchased a small vintage-themed clock for my bedside, and it’s assuaged my need to check my phone at night. Other than our phones and laptops, we don’t have a clock in the house. It’s nice to know what time it is without picking up my phone.

—Getting enough sleep is essential to my well-being, so I try and close my eyes by 8:30 or 9:00 p.m. because I get up between 4:30 and 4:45 a.m. to attend a 6:00 a.m. CrossFit class. Also, I’m obsessed with my bed, bedding, and pillows.

My routine isn’t static, and it’s subject to change. For example, if I have the chance to hang out with friends or attend an event that sounds interesting—I go! Recently, Logan and I went to a local comedy night, and it was hilarious. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time, and with all the crazy events that are happening in the world—storms, earthquakes, politics, etc.—laughter, sleep, and sticking to mindful routines help me stay grounded.

With gratitude,
Tammy

{This month: Feminism, embracing boredom, living a good life, Patreon, and more.}

Photo by Tammy Strobel

Hi all,

I love reading good books, and I hope this roundup inspires you to buy a book or explore your local library.

Enjoy!

1.  My friends Sarah and Katie started a digital book club, and last month we read Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay. I resonated with so many of Gay’s stories, especially her take on feminism.

Gay said,

“I openly embrace the label of bad feminist. I do so because I am flawed and human. I am not terribly well versed in feminist history. I am not as well read in key feminist texts as I would like to be. I have certain . . . interests and personality traits and opinions that may not fall in line with mainstream feminism, but I am still a feminist. I cannot tell you how freeing it has been to accept this about myself.

I embrace the label of bad feminist because I am human. I am messy. I’m not trying to be an example. I am not trying to be perfect. I am not trying to say I have all the answers. I am not trying to say I’m right. I am just trying—trying to support what I believe in, trying to do some good in this world, trying to make some noise with my writing while also being myself . . . ”

When I read her words, I wanted to shout, “Me, too!”

2. A few months ago, I pre-ordered Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone by Brené Brown. As of this writing, it is the best book I’ve read in 2017. Brown’s research is impactful, and it’s essential to incorporate her ideas into conversations around race, class, gender, and politics. Like Brown, I believe we must move away from dehumanizing language and move toward civility, courage, and empathy.

As Brown said:

“There is a line. It’s etched from dignity. And raging, fearful people from the right and left are crossing it at unprecedented rates every single day. We must never tolerate dehumanization—the primary instrument of violence that has been used in every genocide recorded throughout history.

When we engage in dehumanizing rhetoric or promote dehumanizing images, we diminish our own humanity in the process. When we reduce Muslim people to terrorists or Mexicans to ‘illegals’ or police officers to pigs, it says nothing at all about the people we’re attacking. It does, however, say volumes about who we are and the degree to which we’re operating in our integrity.”

There’s so much I want to say about Brown’s work, and there’s not enough space to say it here. I’m going to read Braving the Wilderness again and write a post about how it impacted me. If you don’t have time to read the book, watch this conversation.

2. In 2015, I listened to the Bored and Brilliant podcast series, and it helped me rethink how I use my iPhone. When I found out Manoush Zomorodi wrote a book by the same name, I was pumped! I devoured the book in three days, and it helped me revamp my work days and evenings. If you struggle with the amount of time you spend on your phone or computer, read Bored and Brilliant.

4. Before leaving for The Netherlands, and during my vacation, Mark Manson’s book—The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck—kept catching my eye. I saw it in airports, bookstores, and a few stationery shops. When I got back home and wandered into my favorite coffee/bookshop—there it was, sitting on the shelf. I felt like the universe was trying to tell me something, so I bought the damn book.

I wrongly assumed Manon’s book was about being indifferent to life problems, but that’s not the case. Instead, Manson unpacks our culture’s obsessive focus on happiness, success, and freedom, and offers readers a guide “to suffering and how to do it better, more meaningfully, with more compassion and more humility. It’s a book about moving lightly despite your heavy burdens, resting easier with your greatest fears, laughing at your tears as you cry them.”

It is seriously awesome!

5. I’m slowly working my way through How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger. The book is big, dense, and practical. In short, it’s about healing your body by eating whole foods.

6. Want to write more? Find an accountability buddy.

7. Non-traditional, creative, and inspiring: “A London author who secretly wrote her debut novel on her phone while commuting has been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction.”

8. Brazilian photographer Luisa Dörr recently photographed a series for Time Magazine called “Firsts.” The series featured women who have “broken a major barrier in their field.” Also, Dörr shot the portraits on her iPhone. The camera in my iPhone is my primary camera, and I was inspired by Dörr’s work.

9. On my nightstand: You Learn by Living by Eleanor Roosevelt, What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton, the latest edition of Flow Magazine, and a galley copy of my friend Cait’s new book—The Year of Less.

10. If you like my essays, photos, and curated happy links, please support my work on Patreon. Patreon is a membership platform where you can contribute to RowdyKittens.com and get cool rewards in return. I’d be grateful if you checked out my Patreon page!

Thanks for reading!

Our devices aren’t going anywhere; they are a permanent part of the modern world. Still, that doesn’t mean distraction has to be.

During our trip to The Netherlands, my iPhone use increased. This made sense because I used my phone for directions, to take photos, and to stay connected with friends in The Netherlands. However, as I got back into my daily routine at home, my old twitch to constantly check Instagram and text messages reemerged.

Thankfully, I pre-ordered Manoush Zomorodi’s new book, Bored and Brilliant, and it arrived shortly after we returned from vacation. I devoured Zomorodi’s book in three days, and I’m currently working my way through the Bored and Brilliant challenges.

First, I downloaded an app called Moment. Moment tracks the amount of time I spend on my smartphone and which apps I use the most. The numbers weren’t what I expected. On average, I spent two hours a day on my phone last week, and I picked it up every 22 minutes! At least I took a break from my phone while I slept.

There is one data point that I’m happy about—the amount of time I spend talking on the phone grew. On average, I spend an hour every day chatting on the phone, and that activity makes me happy. I enjoy receiving text messages, but if I’m going to have an in-depth conversation, I’d rather do that on the phone or in person.

Other than tracking how I spend my time on my phone, I started keeping my phone in my purse. When I’m struggling with writing, I don’t want to see my phone because I’m tempted to pick it up and check Instagram. I need to learn—yet again—how to lean into creative discomfort.

Also, leaning into discomfort meant that my phone needed to stop vibrating. I don’t receive non-vital notifications on my phone. However, my phone still vibrated when an incoming call or text message came through, and that was annoying and distracting. Now, my phone is on silent and in my purse when I’m working. Also, only close friends and family can get through the emergency bypass setting on my phone. These folks also have specific ringtones.

Dr. Alex Soojung-Kim Pang—a tech forecaster, author, and scholar—said, “distraction is a choice.” Every time I pick up my phone, I keep that sentiment in mind. For example, I enjoy connecting with readers and other artists on social media. On the other hand, overindulging in social media, and using it to procrastinate, makes me feel awful. I don’t want to feel bad. Instead, I want to feel good, grounded, and inspired to do deep work.

If you’re struggling with the amount of time you spend online, I highly recommend reading Bored and Brilliant. Also, doing a time audit or downloading the Moment app is a helpful option, too.

With gratitude,
Tammy

While we were in The Netherlands, I took 1,009 photos (using my iPhone 7 Plus) and 20 videos. I love photography because it’s fun to capture shells on the beach, the sunrise or sunset, architecture, people, coffee, bikes, and hundreds of other beautiful details. I also love sharing my photos on the blog, social media, and with loved ones.

Nonetheless, I don’t want to get so caught up in documenting an experience that I forget to enjoy the experience itself or develop what Linda Henkel calls the “photo-taking-impairment effect”—where taking photos dulls or even prevents people from forming memories.

Overall, I felt like I struck a good balance on our vacation. I fostered my love for photography and enjoyed each moment of the trip. However, 1,009 photos are a lot of images! On my next trip, I want to take fewer photos and do a better job of composing a photograph before I take a snapshot. Hopefully, that will make me a better photographer, and I won’t have to spend as much time deleting images when I get home.

Today, I thought I’d share how I sort through my photographs. Feel free to steal or adapt my strategies.

1. It’s essential to make the time to look at my photos and reflect on the experience. If I’m not going to look at my photographs or share them with friends and family, I’d rather not take images.

2. Transfer your images from your iPhone to your laptop.

3. Backup your photos on Dropbox.

4. Use the delete button ruthlessly.

5. Once you’ve deleted poorly composed images, repeat steps 1 and 4.

6. Start the editing process in Lightroom.

7. Add your photos to a folder or collection in Lightroom.

8. Share your photos with family, friends, and on the blog.

Parting words

The steps above help me cut down on digital clutter and stay organized. The process takes time, but once I get into the deleting and editing groove, it’s fun! Most of the time, I tend to edit my photos lightly. For example, I’ll adjust the exposure, contrast, or the warmth of an image, and that’s it. However, it’s rewarding to play with different filters, apps, and other photo editing tools because it sparks my creativity and I learn new skills. Plus, it’s helped me view the editing process as a form of art.

Additional notes and news

I’m going to close this post with a roundup of my favorite photos from our travels. If you’re reading this via email or in a feed reader, check out my travel photos here.

Before we left for The Netherlands, and during our travel adventures, friends and family asked us: Why the Netherlands? What made you want to visit the country?

Here’s why:

1. We were car-free from 2008 to 2013, roughly five years. When we moved back to Siskiyou County in 2013, we bought a used car because living in a rural area without a car is very challenging. Cycling is still part of our daily routine, and that habit led us to an interest in walkable and bike-friendly cities and countries like The Netherlands. As a side note, if you’re interested in learning more about the history of cycling in The Netherlands, read In the City of Bikes: The Story of the Amsterdam Cyclist by Pete Jordan.

2. Before this trip, we hadn’t been to Europe, and we’d been thinking of traveling overseas for years. The Netherlands seemed like the perfect place to visit because I have friends who live in the country.

3. In 2012, Flow Magazine emailed me with an interview request, and I said yes. Thanks to that interview, I’ve connected with Dutch readers online, guest blogged for Flow, and they even bought some of my photos for their German edition. In essence, Flow Magazine sparked my interest in The Netherlands. And, while we were in Amsterdam, I had coffee with a writer from Flow Magazine. It was lovely!

Today, I thought I’d share some notes and observations about our adventures in The Netherlands:

Packing

Photo by Tammy Strobel

Based on reader recommendations, I bought a Tom Bihn Aeronaut 30 in 2016. I’m obsessed with this travel bag, and I use it for both short and long trips. It also forces me to pack lightly. For my two-week trip, I packed five outfits, one jacket, one vest, one pair of walking shoes, undergarments, and too many journals and books. On my next travel adventure, I won’t bring as many books or journals because they added too much weight to my bag. In addition to the Aeronaut 30, I brought along a small day backpack for outings.

As a side note, Logan entered a giveaway hosted by Shepherd’s Dream, last month, and we won two Contour Sleep Pillows! Before leaving for The Netherlands, we picked our prize, and the staff gifted us a small travel pillow to review. The pillow was perfect for our trip. It was easy to pack and lovely to snuggle with on the plane.

On trip planning and leaving work at home

Photo by Tammy Strobel

I’m happy we didn’t plan every moment of our vacation. We had a few aims for the trip which included hanging out with friends, cycling, eating delicious food, drinking coffee, and hosting my reader meet-up. We purposely crafted a flexible itinerary so that we would have plenty of time relax, wander, and nap.

During our trip, we explored Amsterdam, Leiden, The Hague, and Katwijk. Two weeks didn’t feel like enough time to see the Netherlands; I want to go back for another trip. It’s a small country, but there’s so much to explore!

In addition to having a loose itinerary, one of the best decisions I made for the trip was leaving my laptop at home. I did a tiny bit of work on vacation (which I did on my iPhone 7 Plus). If I’d brought my laptop, I would have been tempted to edit photos, write longer essays, and check my email frequently. Also, my iPhone was a great tool for taking photos, texting, sharing travel images on social media, and the Google Maps app helped us not get lost.

No tchotchkes

Photo by Tammy Strobel

I didn’t shop on vacation because I don’t like to spend my money on tchotchkes, clothes, etc. Instead, we put our dollars toward delicious food, museum fees, bike rentals, and public transportation. However, about an hour before we left Amsterdam, we walked by a cute little stationery shop called De Posthumus Winkel. They’ve been open since 1865! I bought a bike-themed journal for work and a stamp. I can’t wait to stamp my snail mail correspondence.

All the bikes and coffee!

The biggest difference between daily life at home and in The Netherlands is the transportation system. In the States, the transit system is car centric, whereas the Dutch have created a system that’s focused on cycling, walking, trains, and buses. I loved cycling in The Netherlands, and the public transit system was easy to use and clean.

Photo by Tammy Strobel

Also, the average cup of coffee in The Netherlands is better quality than the average cup of coffee in the States—that alone makes me want to move overseas.

All the museums!

Photo by Tammy Strobel

We tried to visit as many museums as possible, including:

  • Rijks Museum
  • Rijksmuseum van Oudheden (the national museum of antiquities in Leiden)
  • Mauritshuis in Den Haag
  • Museum Van Loon
  • Moco Museum that featured Banksy and Dali’s art
  • Seeing Escher’s art in Het Paleis (this was crazy cool, and was probably my favorite museum)

Looking at 5,000-year-old Egyptian art and artifacts, Rembrandt, Van Gough, Vermeer, among many many other artists made my heart happy.

Meeting friends

Photo by Tammy Strobel

Back in 2012, I meet my friend Katie through my blog, and since then we’ve been corresponding via email and snail mail. Honestly, I can’t believe we’ve been writing each other long-form letters for five years! One of the best parts of my trip was meeting Katie in person. Katie lives in France (most of the time), and she traveled to Amsterdam to hang out with us.

We also had a lovely time cycling, walking, and trying to eat all the food with our friends Dave and Trina. I love these two humans, and I’m grateful I got to spend time with them on our vacation.

And last but not least, I hosted a reader meet-up in Amsterdam at the end of my trip. I couldn’t have done this without Sarah’s help. She found the location and is a lovely person. About fifteen readers attended the meetup, and I was honored to meet everyone who came out!

On gratitude and language

Photo by Tammy Strobel

Everyone I interacted with in The Netherlands was friendly and spoke English (with an American accent) and other languages like German or French. This made navigating The Netherlands as a tourist easy because I only know a few words and phrases in Dutch.

Parting words

Interestingly, I didn’t experience bad jet lag when arrived in The Netherlands. Coming home was another story. Jet lag kicked my ass, and I felt foggy and sleepy for eight days. Thankfully, I gave myself buffer time to reintegrate into my daily routine. For example, I only worked half-time the first week we were back, prioritized sleep, and went to CrossFit every other day.

Over the next month, I’ll be sharing stories and lessons I learned from our travels in The Netherlands. I couldn’t fit everything into one post, so stay tuned for additional updates and travel photos.

With gratitude,
Tammy

{This month: Gratitude, outrage, hope, and more}

Leiden, The Netherlands; photo by Tammy Strobel

Hi all,

Our trip to The Netherlands renewed my spirit and left me feeling incredibly grateful. I’ll share photos and an essay about our travel adventures soon. Also, the trip reaffirmed my theory that most people are good, despite the horrific events that dominate the headlines.

And speaking of the news, Charlottesville is still on my mind. I’m not surprised by what happened in Charlottesville because racism runs deep in the U.S., and it’s not okay. I don’t have answers, but I will donate money to organizations who are doing anti-racist work and continue to speak up.

With that, let’s move onto this month’s link roundup. The essays and books included in this roundup aren’t necessarily “happy.” However, the articles inspired me to take action. Also, I linked to a few pieces that are light-hearted.

1. Please donate and share this link.

2. “Don’t lose hope just because some people are the worst. Some people are the best, too. The rest of us are somewhere in between, but we keep striving for better. Charitable acts are one way to help us get there.” —via Sara Benincasa, What to Do About Charlottesville

3. Stating the obvious: “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”

4. Awesome tips via Susannah Conway: Staying sane in this connected world.

5. Wise words via Sas: Five ways to be online, while the world wakes up to itself.

6. Nicole Antoinette released Season 12 of Real Talk Radio. The episodes are informative and helpful!

7. During September, I’ll be listening to Scene on Radio.

8. Last month, I linked to Weekly Action Checklist for Democrats, Independents, and Republicans of Conscience and I’m sharing it again because it’s a helpful resource.

9. So good: We can be scared together.

10. This essay—Aging Parents With Lots of Stuff, and Children Who Don’t Want It—isn’t related to activism or policy, but it’s a good read.

11. I pre-ordered Brené Brown’s new book—Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone. The topic is incredibly timely.

Bonus links/news: 

12. I’m teaching my online journaling course, Write to Flourish, in September. If you’ve been thinking about taking the class, enroll. I’m not planning on teaching this class again until 2018. Register here.

13. In October, I’m speaking at the Tiny House Jamboree in Arlington, Texas. The title of my talk is Life in 128-Square Feet and Beyond. I’ll share why I simplified my life, what it was like to live in 128-square-feet for 4 years, and offer attendees tips and tools to go small, think big, and be happy. Hope to see you there!

14. I extended my digital book sale through August because Everyday Adventures is available on the Kindle for $1.99. I’d be grateful if you bought a copy and left a review on Amazon. Grab your copy: Print | Kindle | PDF

Thanks for reading! If you enjoyed my link roundup, please share this post with a friend.

With gratitude,
Tammy
