4 Things - October 2020

 Each month I am going to share with you 4 things about myself. It's on the 4th Tuesday of each month. Why 4? It's my favorite number. 

My goal is that this become something that we can share and learn about each other. When I started blogging, I was a lot easier than it is now. I felt like it was more community and getting to know people. Sometimes I feel blogging now is all promotion. Don't get me wrong I'll be promoting stuff on here too much I want it to be bigger than that. 

I want to get to know you. Not just the big stuff but the little stuff too. 

I have had a blog since 2009. 

My blog/website/space (whatever you want to call it) has been named so many different things over the past 11 years. Some years I didn't write, some years I was super consistent. Do regret not being consistent, but baseball moves took over my life. It was first more of a Christian blog. I came back to the church after many years away. I was in a really dark spot in my life. So it was a way to journal through it. I actually never intended for people to see it. 

Then it became what a lifestyle blog (before blogs were put into categories). I had just gotten engaged, and we have family all over the US. So we wanted to use it as a space to share our lives. Then I went to my name. When I changed it to my name I didn't write very much. That was probably the least favorite. I didn't have any goals or direction.

Next was The Fitness Gypsy. I wanted it to be a travel fitness blog. I miss this the most. I should have been more committed to the name. I LOVE the name, but I was so WORRIED about offending people with the name gyspy. Now I am at Jessa Olson Wellness. Everything fitness, wellness, and lifestyle

Extremely Organized. 

Everything has to have it's perfect spot in my bag, car, desk, etc. I can not work in clutter. Which has been a struggle since I do work from home a few days a week. I am having to learn how to turn my back and focus on the space I am in. 

My planner HAS TO BE color coded or else all the black or blue overwhelms me. I know it can drive my husband crazy, because we have so many pens around the house. 

Heisman Barkley Olson

He is our half Dachshund and half Jack Russell. We got him our first Christmas together. He is seriously the best pup ever. My biggest regret with him is not introducing him to more dogs when he was a pup. He does not like other dogs, but people he loves. 

He is named after the Heisman Trophy. Matt Barkley when he was playing at USC. During the fall, we obviously watch college football. When the announcers make a comment that he is a Heisman candidate he'll look to the TV. It's super funny and cute. 

I love to crochet. 

This is a hobby that I wish I am more consistent at doing. I learned to crochet maybe 10 years ago. I only crochet things without a pattern because I am so sporadic. My favorite is earwarmers or headbands. 

I attempted to have an Etsy store about 7 years ago. I was encouraged by another blogger I was friends with at the time, I actually really loved it. I didn't have a plan for it. During quarantine I decided to relaunch the business. I'll be sharing more about that later.
