Blogging is like taking a literary snapshot of life and sharing it with the world.

Today marks the 1-month anniversary of Tangier’s Place and I am so excited! It took so long for me to get this blog off the ground.  I did a lot of thinking, a lot of planning, a lot of contemplating, a lot of brainstorming, and really at the end of the day I just needed to start.

Since this blog, I have gained new friends, new followers and I’ve been able to encourage people along the way, which I am most grateful for.  To me, blogging is like taking a literary snapshot of life and sharing it with the world and I am happy to be using this gift to impact lives.  Big thank you to everyone who takes the time to read, glance, peek or just view for a second.  Thank you for your support and I promise to never disappoint!

One of the things that has helped me is being able to find ways to be more efficient.  When you have a busy lifestyle, the day can get away from you. But that is no reason not to fulfill your dreams.  Here are a few ways that I put time back into my day:

Start Early

Utilize Resources



Apps that provide services like voice-to-text, task reminders and even food delivery services have helped me tremendously when it comes to maximizing my time.  Don’t have time to walk through grocery store aisles? No problem, make a list and have everything delivered in time for dinner.

Learn to Pace Yourself

Don’t try to do everything at once!  For example, I am meticulous about the cleanliness of my house.  But if I tried to clean it all in one day, I would get nothing else done.  So I have days that I do certain things and just keep it in rotation.

Stay Humble, Be Grateful

Cheers to many more months of blogging!
