January Wrap Up
Despite its reputation as a contemplative month, January flew by for me in a haze of post-holiday unwrapping, post-Hawaii unpacking, and post-quarterlife crisis pondering. Named for Janus, the god of passages and doorways, January is considered the door to the new year, and boy, did mine open with a bang. Thankfully, Move kept me on track, with a lot of great inspiration from all the wonderful writers who contributed their talents to the blog this month. I hope you were also able to take some good bits from our January Issue, filled with bite-sized advice from professional women, (as well as our first male contributor!) to help you think about your upcoming year in a new way.
Some of my favorite articles from the month:
- Writer Leigh MacGowan envisions what we can gain with five more minutes.
- Activist Lynn Chen starts a body revolution.
- Designer Megan Hunt creates an entire wardrobe out of one striped dress.
- Perfectionist Jenn Wong makes the leap to lose control.
- Photography maven Sylvia Hendershott helps us look our best in photos this year.
Behind the scenes, we’ve been talking a lot about the future of Move, and having some exciting conversations with the creators of some of our favorite websites, so look forward to new collaborations and exciting Girl Friday Interviews in the year to come. We’re making an effort to share more beautiful visual content with our readers as well as more products that help our lives run a little smoother. You’ll be seeing little changes in the site’s layout as we learn more about what’s working well. Since Move is intended as a lifestyle blog for working women, I’m also going to be sharing more with you about my own struggles to balance an active career with raising an active toddler. February, the month of love, begins tomorrow and we have a really lovely Girl Friday for you. (I’m so proud of this interview I could explode with excitement!)
We’d love to hear from YOU about what you’d like to see more of on the site, so please comment below and let us know! We read each and every one of your comments and they’re much appreciated.
