Welcome to the New Blisschick!


If you're reading this in a reader or an email today, it's a day that you'll want to click over to the actual Blisschick site, because she is all new! (And awaiting a few minor tweaks, of course.)

Welcome to the new and improved Blisschick, where lots of yummy will be going on in the next couple of months.

In order to facilitate more glitter goodness here, I had to create a site that could function as more than a blog.

Though the blog is still the center of it all. The blog is still the reason this site exists. The interaction with you, dear readers, is why I do this every single day.

At the top, you'll see a brand new header designed by the same wonderfully talented Heidi who designed our Wild Woman poster.

Right below the header, you'll see links to all the other pages. Please explore these! I've had a lot of fun putting together the content.

On the Chickography page, you'll find my new and expanded "about me." On the "Dance&Yoga" page, you'll find my own dance and yoga stories but also lists of recommended resources.

The "Writing&Teaching" page is where a lot of goodness will be coming in the months ahead, including podcasts and workshops. For now, it acts as a bit of a resume type thingie.

On "ChickMap," you'll find me. Everywhere I am on these interwebs. You'll find all the ways you can connect with me, but you'll also find all the other places I have written or been interviewed.

And finally, if you go to "ChickLoves," you'll find a list of blogs I love (that is far from all inclusive), and a list of shiny things that I love from all over cyberspace. This list will grow from time to time.

Let me know what you think.

Let me know, also, what else you want. What sorts of podcasts and workshops do you dream of? What sort of topics do you want covered here?

Much peace and bliss and beauty to all you readers on this, the Epiphany, a perfect day, I thought, for a fresh start.

A blessing for you and your new site:

- May your dreams come true as you pour your energy into this beautiful space.
- May you be bold yet sensitive, fun yet serious, spontaneous yet thoughtful.
- May this be a place of safety and inspiration for people who are drawn to it.
- May this website draw all of the right people to your compassionate, inspiring, dancing, beautiful heart.
- May this be the launching off point for the other big dreams you hold close to your heart.

Rock on, beautiful friend!

I came by earlier and say just a plain white background and I knew something waz up...woot! I love the header and colors, and I've yet to explore the other pages! (Can I tell you though that I miss "be brave, choose bliss"...I have those words painted on a beach brick I found one day...and those words have really sunk into my psyche these past few, creative weeks for me.) Congrats to you and way to go Heidi! Looking forward to embracing your expansion here in bloghood...

Peace,
WRO

Christine,
Stunning! And right away I am greeted by my beloved Mary as the Guadalupe. Oh, my heart be still. You've created a thing of beauty and soul. Have fun with it.

Just wanted to officially thank you for your very sensitive response today at my blog re. meditation and depression. You are most insightful and I am glad to have you share what you did because I certainly did not think of mentioning that myself. You are womanly wealth of wonderment and resources. xoox
