Stop! It's Going Too Fast and I Want to Get Off!

It's going too fast and I want to get off!
Okay - I don't actually mean that I want things to stop so that I can get off because I'm having too much fun but, over the last few months, my life has become a daily whirlwind of new businesses, taking on new projects, building websites and building a brand and it's not showing any sign of slowing down.

I have loved every minute of it so far but it has meant that so many other things in my life have had to be put on the back burner whilst all this has been going on, including Cupcakes and Cadenzas. It will all have been worth it in the long run but I just want to say thanks to everyone who has stuck around and not abandoned this blog and to say that I haven't forgotten about it or you.

Why I love Cupcakes and Cadenzas so much and refuse to give up on it it is that it was the very first blog that I set up and is therefore my 'baby' as far as blogs go. I have several other blogs set up for various business ventures but Cupcakes and Cadenzas is the only blog where I can simply talk about random stuff.  Whether or not anyone reads it is, of course, another matter, but for me, coming on here and writing a post is like coming home from a day at the office, kicking off my shoes, pouring myself a glass of wine and getting on the phone to a good friend for a gossip.

Anyway, just to keep you in the picture, here's what I've been up to over the last little while:
  • I have set up my directional and performance coaching business and it's now running successfully. You can find out more about that by clicking here
  • I am still teaching singing and piano although I have greatly reduced the amount of teaching that I do. 
  • I have joined a fabulous affiliate marketing opportunity devised and run by two of the best known marketing guys around today - Tim Erway and Mike Dillard and it's aimed at anyone who wants to make passive income. It's perfect for anyone and everyone but is particularly suited to coaches, authors, musicians, network marketers, entrepreneurs, work-at-home-mums and anyone who fancies making a bit of extra money. You can probably already tell that I'm hugely enthusiastic about this and if you want to find out more about that - just ask me for details. Blog posts and vlogs coming up about it over at Denise Mitchell Coaching in the next few days.
So - that's where I'm at. I also want to start making videos to put on my coaching site but, despite being a performer, I'm really nervous about making videos to put onto YouTube as I've never done it before so, I was thinking about putting a couple on here to start with - maybe about Filofaxes or something - and see how it goes. Feedback would be appreciated but kind to me :-)

The Sad Songs Blogfest

This is the first time I've ever taken part in a Blogfest and it has been great fun! Thank you to Diane for organising it. You can find Diane's blog by clicking here  Check out her list of inspirational, sad songs. I have had a ball going through old cds, trying to pick out my top 10 sad songs that inspire me. I have to admit that I could have come up with way more than 10 but I decided to give myself a limit. These songs hold no particular memories for me but they are songs that tug at my heart strings every time I hear them and if I'm ever feeling down and wanting to wallow in self-pity, then these are the songs I would put into my playlist and play whilst drinking a bottle glass or two of wine. Are you sitting comfortably? (click on any of the titles to hear the songs on youTube) Hello by Evanescence . The haunting piano accompaniment and the striking voice of Amy lee make this (in my opinion) one of the most moving songs this band have ever released. All O

A-Z Blogging Challenge: B is for 'Baa Baa Black Sheep'

Baa baa black sheep 'Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?   Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full, One for the master, one for the dame, And one for the little boy who lives down the lane.' Although this rhyme was first published in 1744 it is believed to have been around for much longer. In fact, it is thought that it was written in the Middle Ages during the reign of King Edward II (1307 - 1327). This seemingly innocent children's nursery rhyme about a black sheep yielding three bags of wool actually has political undertones like many of the nursery rhymes from that era. During the Middle Ages the wool industry in England was huge and wool was a very valuable commodity. England produced the best wool in Europe and peasants were required to pay their taxes in the form of sacks of wool. They gave a third to the King (the master), a third to the nobility (the dame) and they were allowed to keep the final third for themselves (the little boy who lived down the lane)
