Mundane Monday Morning Music: Dido – Thank You

Happy Thanksgiving?Columbus Day Morning, Readers!

It’s a gorgeous (looking) long weekend morning here, and, for once, we are taking things a little bit slower than usual.  It’s rare when we take things easy at home, so my other half and I are going to savour every bit of this last long weekend (for us Canadians) until Christmas as much as we can!

As per my tradition for this feature, I’m also slowing down the beat for my MMMM pick this week.  This week’s pick is “Thank You” by Dido. I know this song is not exactly about what most people would give thanks for, but I’m the type of person who thanks people for what they’ve done for me.  Some people may find this act as being disingenuous, but I think that people should hear how you have touched their life and have made it better, so maybe this is not such a bad pick for today, huh!

I hope that “Thank You” helps you to relax and reflect on this non-working  mundane Monday morning!

Until my next post, Readers!


I’m Back!

Hey Readers!

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post here on Reese Speaks. The past few months have been filled with fun campaigns, assignments and guest posts for blogs I contribute to, as well as helping to plan events, learning so much along the way from some fantabulous people (you know who you are)!

It was the first time in a long time that I had experienced being “burn-out” in this crazy world of blogging.  It’s not that I didn’t want to write, but I was blanking. I felt as though I didn’t gave anything to write. I then decided I couldn’t stress out about not writing something on my blog just to “keep up with the Jones'” of the blogisphere, and to stay away from writing for a while.

My mini sabbatical really recharged me! I got to relax during my down time instead of trying to crunch work on posts whenever I could. I got to catch up on other events I was involved with.  I was even able to learn how to become a better blogger by hearing from some of the best in the biz at the BConnected Conference in Ottawa, ON.

Now that I’m back, it’s time for me to roll up my sleeves and do right by my blog. I have to get this blog ship-shape, so you, Readers, can enjoy popping into  Reese Speaks even know than you do. I’ll let know what I have in store for my blog as soon as everything is ready!

Ah, it feels so good to be back, Readers!

Until my next post, Readers!
