One of my blogger goals for 2019 is so very simple: give the people what they want.

The people?

That’s you, boo.

In October of last year, I asked for your feedback via a survey, and I like to think of it as a “serve-a,” as my intention was to use the results to deduce how I can better serve you.  Cue loads of giggles at my cleverness or eye-rolls at my corniness.

My desire to serve you is simply because if you are generously giving me some of your time and attention, I want to make sure you are getting the content and products that you want.

To that end, one of the questions on the survey was: what product or service would you like to see me create for you?

One of the answers made me scratch my head for a moment: a self-care book club.

Well huh.  I had never thought of that before.

And now that the idea had been brought to my attention, I decided to poll you on my Instagram stories and see how much interest there was in something like that.  Lo and behold, it was by far the product/service that most people wanted!

So here I am:  just a blogger, standing before her readers, asking them: do you want in?

Because we are DOING THE DANG THING!

That’s right, starting February 14, I’m going to open up registration for our first ever Self-Care Bestie Book Club!  I’m still working out the details (and I would LOVE your continued input!), but the plan right now is to announce our first book mid-February, and sometime at the end of March we will have our online book discussion – led by yours truly.  If all goes well, we can do another book/discussion in the summer and fall of this year.  As it’s just starting up, I think one book per season is a good plan – but I’m always open for doing more in the future!

So what do you think?  Are you excited about the launch of this here book club?  Better yet, do you have ideas for what the first book should be?  I’ll likely come up with a list of books to choose from and do a poll on my Facebook page and Instagram stories sometime in February and go with the most popular pick.

I’m beyond excited to connect with you in this way, and I hope you’ll consider joining us when the book club begins!
