Slogging through Blogging

Blogging is hard, you guys!

When I started this site, I wanted to update several times per week. My vision was (still is) posts that mix the personal and the professional. I want to talk about my professional passions of motivating people and helping them to be healthier and happier, but in a personal way that reflects my experience and hobbies. At work, I don’t have the opportunity to get nearly as real about stuff. But at the same time, I don’t want this space to become so completely personal that it doesn’t reflect my professional identity.

It’s a difficult line to walk.

So, I’ve struggled to come up with topics to write about as frequently as I want to. It’s very tempting to make this more of an old-school blog (diary), and get chatty. It’s also weirdly tempting to get all Professor-like. I’m working on striking the right balance, so bear with me. And if you have ideas for things to write about around motivation, health, and happiness, please let me know!

Welcome to my new website!

I decided it was time to create an Internet home of my very own. Although I’m active on lots of other platforms, including Twitter and the Wired Insights blog, I was looking for a place where I could talk about a broad range of topics within my professional expertise while also letting a little more of my personality come through. Hence, this site was born.

I’m hoping to update fairly regularly about topics like motivational design, workplace culture, national/regional/local culture, health behaviors, behavior change and habit formation, medication adherence, social relationships, and engagement with other people (whew!). I’ll also probably post occasionally about things in my personal life, like running or travel. I’d love to see this site become a way to connect with other people who share my interests and want to talk or work together.

So thanks for coming by, and welcome to amybucherphd.com!
