This morning, I was taking inventory of the past couple years and how much this site has grown.
Did you know there are five of us (and a host of contributors) who work on providing content for you on HappyWivesClub.com, as well on our various social networks?
Christin handles the administrative work and media. Angela creates those fabulous graphics you see all over the place with our URL on them. My sister, Christy Joy, and I take care of our incredibly active Facebook page. And Karen excitedly pins throughout the day on Pinterest.
And of course, I’m here every day writing a post, responding to your comments and emails, editing a contributor post, creating graphics for the posts or connecting with this community on social media.
I feel so grateful and fortunate to be able to do this and the marriage book so many of you purchased, and the one I am turning into my publisher on Friday, has kept it all going.
I want to make sure I’m always engaged no matter how fast life is moving. But I also realize I need to take some of my own advice and do what I’ve been suggesting to you for years: slow down and enjoy some extended downtime with the family.
So for the first time in four years -since this club launched- I’m taking a sabbatical. I will return on Monday, September 15th renewed, reinvigorated and ready to continue sharing this positive message about love and marriage around the world. The team and I will keep the embers burning on social media, just not here.
As I was thinking about what to post for our very last article this summer, I realized I’ve never done a recap of the most popular posts on our site. If you’ve missed any of these, make sure to check them out. They’re scorching hot for a reason (a very good reason, I hope ).
Make it a great remainder of the summer!
P.S. This post, originally published August 4th, will be updated every few days so if a new one enters the top ten, we’ll make sure to let you know. And don’t forget to share your favorite post with your friends.
THE NEW YORK TIMES® BEST-SELLING BOOK: It’s been described as, “Like Eat, Pray, Love but not down on marriage.” Make sure to check out the Happy Wives Club book. I had the great honor of traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, interviewing couples happily married 25 years or more, with 1 mission only: to find out what makes marriages happy…and keeps them that way. It’s a marriage book like none other. Guaranteed.
