What’s Brewing at Get In the Hot Spot?

The three Candy kids are on school hols for six weeks (yes SIX!) so I’ll be scaling back on blogging with weekly blog updates  (instead of twice a week) until February.

I plan to spend more time baking, beaching and blobbing out than blogging but I won’t forget about you. I have my blog posts all scheduled and I’ll be back with a vengeance in 2011.

So what are the plans for 2011?

Well, I need to promote my blog, web and social media consultations as I love working one on one with small business owners plus there seems to be an insatiable demand for it so it makes sense to share my expertise.

I’ll also promote blog or web design as that is the core service I provide and web and SEO copy writing.

I might move all my blogging tips over to Successful Blogging and build that site up. I should do a bit of video blogging there. Experiment a bit.

Then I might concentrate on using Get In the Hot Spot to share my travel stories.

Unless I decide to get a new domain name dedicated to travel writing. I can’t tell you the name I have in mind as I haven’t reserved it yet but it involved nudity and is based on an embarrassing incident where I accidentally exposed myself to a group of French men while travelling in Greece.

I also plan to visit my family in the UK next year and hopefully fit in some other trips here and there.

That’s it! I want to play it by ear, see what opportunities crop up and follow my heart.

1000 Mwahs

Thanks for reading. I look forward to seeing you here again and to sharing more tips and adventures with you.

Hi Annabel,

Well, I can tell that you’re not letting the grass grow under your feet!

I look forward to seeing how your plans develop in 2011.

PS “an embarrassing incident where I accidentally exposed myself to a group of French men while travelling in Greece.” That certainly sounds like an international incident! ;-)

I can relate in a way to the blogging less part with my three sons coming home this week and staying until January 9th. Have a wonderful time with your children. I know it’s your summer and the beach looks amazing where you live. What do you like to bake? I make a fantastic New York cheesecake that my sons love.

Ha, how did you guess?! Yesterday I made banana cake. Today broad bean spread – the banana cake was more popular with the kids:)

G’Day Annabel,
Have a great time with you family over the holidays. And best of good luck with you blogging in 2011. I’m interested to discover what else may be exposed!

Happy Christmas

Regards

Leon

It sounds like a plan … baking, beaching, blobbing out, and all.

Hi J.D. glad I get your seal of approval. There is only so much productivity I can take:)

Enjoy the time with your family Annabel. It was great getting to know you and reading your posts this year.

Hi Mel, thank you! We do get to know each other. Some of my blog readers probably know more about me than real life friends! Scary really:)

Enjoy your family during the holidays Annabel.

Looking forward to an awesome 2011!

Three kids in the house for 6 weeks? OMG I would flip out. I feel tired out as it is with just 1 :)

Moving over to SuccessfulBlogging.com would be quite a bit of work but could potentially be very good. You’d grow lots of links and push your products higher in the rankings I would think.

In any case, all the best for 2011 and have a (early) Merry Christmas!

Annabel Candy December 15, 2010 at 7:36 pm

Hi David, thanks for the thoughts. Yes, I’d have to do a lot of link building but as long as there’s an end game of selling more products or maybe selling the whole site it would be worth it:) Happy hols to you too!

“…so I’ll be scaling back on blogging…” (sound of two hands clapping repeatedly).

Parenting the next generation — specifically your own — is some of the most important work done by humans. Let it be Merry Christmas in the Candy household (within the law and budget). Enjoy your husband and family. Embrace your maternal instincts that I’m convinced women have and men are clueless of. Just opinions here, but you are making a good choice

Hi QwkDrw, thank you! Will try to keep within legal and budgetary constraints:)

A trip to the UK next year sounds fun… will that be on your own or with some mini Candys?
Thanks for all your wonderful hot blogging tips this year, which I’ve done my best to soak up and implement :)
All the best for the festive season Annabel ~

These things all have a trajectory, and it’s interesting to see where you’re going next. I’m retooling everything myself. Building on what I’ve learned, ditching the not so good parts.

More baking, beaching and blobbing sounds like it couldn’t be better. Enjoy the joy… 1000 mwahs back! -=)
