Autumn Reflections


It seems only fitting that on this first day of autumn I am reflecting on what I have written on this blog and where I want to go next.

Autumn is a time of harvest and preparing for winter. Symbolically I see this as a time of reflection and introspection that prepares us for our next growth spurt in spring. I began this blog for my own exploration into the world of climbing psychology to record and share what I see, what I experience and what I’ve learned. It turned into a great project of awareness of myself and others and I’ve had a lot of fun (in a nerdy sort of way) researching what others have written and researched on it. So where should we go next?

I am aware that I have a small but loyal set of followers on this site. But my site statistics also show that many of you visit without being followers. So all combined, what do you, my readers, think should be an area of future focus for research and writing on this blog? What topic have you enjoyed most and would like to see more discussion of? What topic have I not touched on that you think I should? Consider yourselves my global focus group of sorts. Especially since so many of my readers are from outside of the U.S.

You’ve let me humor you with my thoughts and ideas and now I’d like to see your ideas. Please share via reply comments here or email me at ranabetting@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
