Time For A Move: Goal For Mini-Bloggiesta

This weekend is the first mini-Bloggiesta of 2015. Whenever I participate in a Bloggiesta, I usually have a list of several things I tackle on this or one of my other blogs. In keeping with my one word resolution this year, I only have one blogging goal for this weekend: move this blog over to 

If I get that done quickly, then I'll start tackling other items in my blogging backlog:
  • Check out the mini-challenges. The Pinterest Project by @SueySays would fit both with this blog (though, not the book part) and my business blog (which would be for books).
  • Write an overdue blog post for my Ask An Agilist blog on 
  • Update my list of blog post ideas
  • Write a post for my business blog.
Happy Bloggiesta! See you soon on!

One Word To Change 2015

If you could pick one word to be your new year's resolution, what would it be? For the past couple of years, a friend has been sharing his one-word resolution and asking us to share ours. Normally I don't make resolutions because I always have more than one project in progress at any given moment in time. Still, choosing one word for the year intrigued me. Then I recently discovered, which has been creating global tribes around one word resolutions since 2009.

"It will take intentionality and commitment, but if you let it, your one word will shape not only your year, but also you." -
Last year I wrote a summary of 2013, but didn't manage to write a post for my 2014 personal goals, even though I had said I would. I can at least come up with one word to become my compass for 2015.

Inspired by the need to live in a bigger home, my One Word for the year is move. This isn't just about moving my home. Move applies to all areas of my life. It is a reminder that I should get out, explore, have some adventures, which can be more than local. I love to travel. I cycled a lot to train for the MS Bike Tour in 2014, which also did a lot for my health and mental well-being. Move will be my mantra to get out and be active. Even in my personal and professional life, it will remind me that I cannot become complacent for these areas to grow.  This blog will join my other blog on WordPress and evolve.

If you were to choose a word to summarize your resolutions and/or be your compass for the year, what would it be?
