Who’s Pinning What From Your Blog

For all my blog-writing friends, did you know you could see what others are pinning from your blog?

I just found this out from reading this article (which is worth a read if you’re a blogger).  If you go topinterest.com/source/YOURDOMAINHERE.com you can see what people have pinned from your blog, break down the most repinned or most recent.

For example, I would go to pinterest.com/source/thedancebuzz.blogspot.com to see my stats.

Happy New Year, 2013!

Happy 2013!   I hope everyone had a great break!

Over Christmas break, my husband and I moved into our new house.. and have been living without internet (or cable or phone) for the past two weeks… #darkages

While it was nice to have some time to focus on other things without the distraction of screens, our internet-less world was starting to drive us nuts!  I felt like I was back in school, going to the library to use the wifi…

Anyway – the start of the New Year is always a great time to look back at last year, look forward to the new year and set some goals.  Last year, I shared my favorite way to set goals for my business and blog.  The biggest problem is that we don’t always keep those resolutions or even think about them after we make them in January.

Did you set goals for 2013?

It turns out writing them down might be the first step to achieving them!  Check out this infographic from onlineeducation.net about setting goals (click to make bigger) and keeping them:

Did you have a nice break?  Did you get the plague like all of my students (and I) did?

Do you make New Year’s Resolutions?  How do you keep them?  Tell me in the comments!

This is Why Dance Matters


What Is This A Picture Of?

I posed the question “why does dance matter to you?” to the followers of my other dance twitter account, @dancequote, and this is a visual representation of their responses.  

What Is Why Dance Matters?

It is a movement to spread the word on why dance is a valuable artform and who it matters to.  Join the movement here: whydancematters.org

Why Dance Matters

As we are coming up on National Dance Day (July 28, 2012), Nichelle at Dance Advantage has posted the question: “Why does dance matter to you?”  In fact, she’s trying to start a whole movement (dance pun intended) of the online dance community to share Why Dance Matters.  If you want to get involved, check it out at whydancematters.org, tweet #whydancematters to you or follow our Pinterest board (you know I love a good Pinterest board)!

So here’s why dance matters to me:

It’s my job.  
But more than that, it’s my passion.
No, it’s still more than that… it’s who I am.

You would not be able to describe me without talking about dance.  
It’s a link between my past and my present.
It’s what I do when my soul needs mending.
It’s the joy that I want to share with my students and friends.
It’s a universal expression of joy and love and emotions.
 
It has created a community of people in my life whom I love and who I feel like I’ve known my whole life (online and offline).

 

It’s wordlesscommunication.
Dance is part of me.
 
 
Join the project and share why dance matters to YOU!
