happy birthday living lagom!

livinglagom.com - happy birthday living lagom!
living lagom turns one tomorrow!!!

I’d normally celebrate such an occasion with a cupcake, but alas, unless a cupcake magically appears, I’ll have to wait until after Lent.*

I know for some people, a year of blogging isn’t earth shattering news. But in the world of Sandy C (that’s my stage name), this is a major accomplishment.

The fact that I’ve committed to something for a whole year (which is like at least 5 years in Sandy C world) is HUGE. And that commitment also included writing consistently on a weekly basis. A feat I’d yet to complete prior to this past year.

Well kids, if I can do it, you can most definitely do it too. (And it doesn’t have to be a blog.)


So given my commitment phobia, I’m changing everything! Kidding. I’m just making a few little tweaks.

Theme: I’ve chosen a new and cleaner theme. I like it. I hope you do too.

Posts: I’m going to continue to post once a week, with monthly challenge updates. I thought about posting more, but this feels right. If I ever get the burning urge to post something extra, then I will.

About: I’ve updated my About page to include a Sandy C timeline. That’s right, I’m taking you all the way back. Disco!

Bookstore: I opened a bookstore! A virtual one that is: living lagom bookstore (via Amazon). I seem to be recommending quite a few books in my posts, so I thought this would be a good way to organize them. You can use it as a reference library since that’s where I got a lot of these books myself. If you do buy a book at my lovely bookstore, I’ll make a teeny-tiny commission. Maybe at the end of the year, I’ll have enough to buy a green tea latte.

Resources: I’ve also created a new Resources page with links to articles and videos that have guided me in my living lagom journey. I hope you’ll find them helpful as well.

let’s get social!

Since I’ll only be posting once a week, I’ve decided to get more active on Twitter.

I’ve also recently made my Instagram account (livinglagom) public. I like Instagram. I tried Pinterest, but Instagram is more my style. I’ll upload photos there of my living lagom adventures that don’t always make it on to the blog.

I understand that it can get overwhelming with having to follow this person or that person. But I also know that everyone has their own preference on how they like to receive content. Some people like to subscribe by email or get Twitter updates or look at photos.

Regardless, I appreciate having you around.

the name is cunha, sandra cunha

It’s been a year, we should probably be properly introduced. Nice to meet you! It turns out, I’m not the only Sandra Cunha in the world. It wasn’t a happy day when I learned of that little tidbit.

I guess I’ll just have to find some other way to be an original.

THANK YOU for reading this past year and for all of your comments! I’d offer you a hug, but I’m not a hugger. Instead, please accept this virtual high five. High five!
(If you just high fived the screen, we’re kindred spirits. Namaste.)

* Since the person voted most likely to make that magical cupcake appear is 8 months pregnant and sometimes gets behind in reading my blog, I’m going to treat myself to a green tea latte instead. In keeping with my Lent rules, it’ll have to be a short. I’ll drink it very, very slowly.

Guest post: I have a guest post on Midway Simplicity. I’m trying to spread the lagom love. If you have a moment, you can read it here.
