New Year, New Blog!


Hello and welcome! If you notice something different that’s because I’ve made a big change! I decided to no longer run my business and personal sites separately. It was entirely too time-consuming and with all of the things I have coming up this year, it wasn’t going to be manageable. So instead of putting myself in a position to run two sites inefficiently, I decided to cut the cord on one. The Richness of a Simple Life is still up and running but you won’t be seeing any new content there moving forward. 

If you enjoyed following me there, you’ll still like what I have to offer here. I’m just much more clear on the direction I’m taking. The Richness of a Simple Life was a place for me to inspire, empower, and uplift others by sharing my story. It was my personal space to share my story. There was no pressure and I felt comfortable with the community I’d built. I was starting to feel constricted with my business blog because I put pressure on myself to be a little more buttoned up (attracting potential clients and all). The thing is, writing is a way for me to express myself authentically. I enjoy my stream of consciousness style of writing and I’m grateful you enjoy reading it.

While it makes sense to give off this ultra-polished and professional vibe for the sake of attracting potential clients, that’s just not how I roll. I know one of the perceptions of a life coach is that they have it all together. If that’s the kind of person you’re looking for, I’ll save you the disappointment because that’s not me. I’m not going to make my life seem more glamorous, put together, or perfect than what it really is. I’m going to continue to write from my heart. I’m going to continue to bring you on this journey with me. I’m going to continue to guide those who are open and willing to be supported by someone who is dedicated to the process and a little further down the road of self-love, self-acceptance, and self-discovery than them. I’m going to continue to let you see me as I grow, stumble, and get back up. You’ll see who I am as I share my journey with you.

I’m rough around the edges, continuing to learn not to take myself so seriously, write what’s on my heart, go with my gut, follow my heart, and start before you feel ready kind of person. I’ll share my story in a way that those who are meant to read it will resonate with it. I’ll talk about the uncomfortable but important aspects of the journey of self-love, self-acceptance, and self-discovery. I’ll encourage you to embark on that journey for yourself, think of things in a different way, and engage in conversations you might not be having anywhere else. At the end of the day, I share what I feel led to. I write to a predominately female audience because I know 9 times out of 10 it will reach the woman who needs to hear it in order to own her story.

For all of you Simple Life lovers who have supported me along the way, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Meeting and connecting with you over these past two years has been more meaningful than I ever could have imagined. To those of you who feel like this is where our paths diverge, I get it. Before I clicked the button and made the switch, I knew that I ran the risk of losing a portion of my following. With growth comes change and not everyone will be here to see it and that’s ok. I can’t let the numbers dictate the direction I take and for that reason, I lovingly say goodbye to those who won’t continue to join me for the journey. It’s been real and I’ll treasure our conversations. To those who will, thank you. I’m looking forward to sharing what 2018 brings my way and hearing how it unfolds for you.

Whether you’re new here or have followed me for years, I want to say hi and ask you to introduce yourself to the community in the comments. Share a little something about yourself so that others can get to know you. There’s empowerment in connecting with those who understand you without knowing you. So don’t be a wallflower, at least share where you’re from, what you blog about, and why you’ll be staying for the journey. Sending you lots of love and wishing you all that you need to support you on your journey of growth!

  2. Well, to begin, I’m not a woman (I’m a dude) but I fully support you in your new endeavour as I am doing the exact same thing. Coincidence? Synchronicity? The new us… the new year.

    1. It’s so nice to meet you, Courtney. Thank you so much for having the courage to open up and start the honest conversations you’re blogging about. Sending lots of love and support your way. I’m so happy to connect with you ❤

    1. It can be nerve-wracking. Here’s 3 pieces of advice:

      1. give what you want to receive, if you want likes/comments then go in search of blogs and like posts you genuinely like and comment on ones you resonate with.

      2. give without the expectation of receiving in return. A lot of times people will follow your like or comment back to our blog, if they do, great! If they don’t that’s ok. Engage with the intention of building a connection.

      3. don’t let the numbers dictate what you do. Share the message that you’re led to share regardless of how many people see it. Serve those who are there to support you the best you have to offer.

      I don’t know if these are game changers it’s just the approach I take. It’s gotten me to where I am in my 2-year blogging journey. It’s so nice to meet you. Wishing you all that you need to support you in your blogging journey, have fun with it ❤

      1. I really liked this perspective. I want to find my blogs and read more stories, and I think now that I’ve just started paying attention to traffic that I’ve started to wonder how will I reach any audience? or who cares to read what I write? But even if no one reads it, I have to write because I can’t not write. thanks so much for this sweet advice, here’s to a new year of blogging and I hope you have a lot of joy this year!

      2. Yeah, the thing about blogging is the intention is to reach people. So it’s hard not to have that expectation. But I’ve found that when I write to share my story and not worry about who it will reach or if they’ll read it, it reaches exactly who it’s meant to whether it’s 1 or 1,000 people. The more you do it, the easier it will be to find what’s right for you. Thank you so much for your wishes! Have a wonderful 2018! ❤ ❤

  4. Hi I love the idea that you can spend more time focussing on the one it is great. I have just restarted my blog after 2 years out and I am slowly attempting to rebrand as I was so young when starting! Id love you to take a look 🙂


  5. Hi Niki! As one of your longtime blogging friends, I’m with you and will continue to be! You’ve inspired me so much these past few years. Sounds like a great decision, so you can focus on one site and not feel like you’re spread too thin. I remember when I first came across your blog, and really loved the title. The Richness of a Simple Life. Instant connection! It’s fun to see how we’re evolving and growing. I wish you a very happy, healthy, and joyful 2018! xx
