Happy Birthday TSN + Personal Update

A year ago today, Think Simple Now was launched with the intention of sharing some of my lessons learned on personal development. The audience was originally intended to be only my family and friends. That circle of friends quickly expanded around the world, to people in 197 countries, and grew beyond any of my expectations.

My original goal was simply to have 100 subscribers. Today, I am proud to be writing for 9000 RSS subscribers and 200,000 (smart and good looking *smiles*) readers who frequent the site each month. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for trusting me with your valuable time. Thank you for your continuous encouragement and support.

Not only have my dreams come true, I am deeply in-love with working on this site. Words cannot express the state of blissful flow I experience when creating new content.

A Journey to Arabic China

I am currently in China on a five week trip and will be spending half of the time in Beijing and the other half In the XinJiang Province. XinJiang is also known as Turkistan China, where a mixture of 19 different ethnic groups co-inhabit a region graced with vast deserts as well as some of the world’s highest mountains.

If you’re interested, you can follow my personal blog at Simply Tina. I will be updating it with pictures and words as Internet access will allow (Subscribe to the RSS feed).

During this time, I will do my best to keep up with my regular posting schedule, but can’t make any promises. Thanks for your understanding.

    I only found your site today, and I haven’t read a lot but I am so happy to have come across you – I found your article ‘How I Got 2000 Subscribers in 3 Months’ and every word gave me added confidence in what I’ve set out (a lot less organized-edly than you mind you) to do.

    I look forward to discovering much more inspiration here

    all the best from warm Barbados, have a great trip
