If you can still call me that. Over a year has gone by since I began this blog and I have managed to write 46 posts. When June came around this year for my year anniversary, I began to rethink my direction. For those of you who have your own blog, you know it’s a challenge to stay focused. Blogging is not simple nor easy. Anyone who says otherwise is crazy. You work hard getting posts out, social media, all the SEO stuff, updates to the wazoo, creating recipes, photography, and I have probably left something out. AND if you have family, that is another niche. I have a child with special needs and another still at home, so interruptions are common. But I began a food blog, because I enjoy baking and I like to share what I bake. I enjoy certain aspects of food blogging but there are many things that I flat out sucked at and the process behind it all was burning me out. It must be those creative types, that is me. I am 105 percent Right-Brained.
Let me explain. From the time I was 3 years old, I always had crayons, pens, paints and any other media for drawing. To this day, I am kind of obsessed with writing instruments. Pens. I write a bit of Calligraphy, I LOVE lettering, I LOVE to draw, use markers, and watercolors as well. In school I loved music, played the clarinet, band, and also sang in the jazz choir. I have taken art classes, upon art classes. That’s why photography comes so easy to me, have been doing that since high school. I also have a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design. My life is completely right-brained. I don’t think there is much Left-Brain about it. Creativity is just my Passion. I do enjoy gardening though, sharing tips, printables and many, other things. Oh! I also had an Etsy shop a while ago and sold items that I sewed. Yes, and I sew too. So you might say I am a Jill of all trades! 😀
So in a nutshell, since my right-brain has taken over, my blog will be slowly changing into a Creative/Crafty/Lifestyle Blog. This will be a step by step process. My focus will be on simple family and nothing will be complicated. It might include some
- photography and photos for tutorials
- short reviews on products. (Only stuff I recommend)
- a few VERY SIMPLE recipes (how-to, spices, diy cleaners, simple, kids, etc.)
- crafty projects (sewing, holiday decor, papercraft, etc.)
Now that you know about my future blog adventure, if this it’s something you are interested in then stick with me. It will be fun! If not, then my feelings won’t be hurt if you leave. My blog name …I haven’t got one yet, but I have an idea. But I will be slowly adding features.
I hope you will stay tuned!
