Six months ago I gave an update on my blog plans, but I haven’t said much about that since. So here it is, my big blog plan:
1) This month I will be only posting two times a week (Monday and Thursday at 11:30am) because I’ll be traveling (details to come later!). Here is a very veiled hint as to where I will be traveling:
2) This blog will be active up until July 18th when there may be an interruption in your access to the site. Why you may ask? Because I will attending the Haute Blog pop up workshop! I’m super excited to attend the workshop, but I’m even more excited to re-launch this blog with a new and improved design! The way this blog looks now is fine, just fine, but I’ve got lots of plans and I’m excited to make this blog look more like it does in my dreams. There may be an interruption in the service for a few days but trust me, it will be worth it!

3) Surprise, I actually like blogging! I started this blog when I first bought my house, but I did it privately. I didn’t want to share it with anyone until I was sure I would keep it up. And for the first six months I only wrote five posts, but then I had a sort of revelation. Blogging is a sort of discipline. I couldn’t just do it when I “felt” like it, I had to do it regularly to develop the habit. So I resolved to blog every day for one month… which didn’t happen. But I did write 24 posts in two months and from then on the habit was established. I’ve tried to blog between 1-5 times per week since. Some weeks are harder than others to get the posts completed but I’ve tried to update my content as often as possible. When I only post once or twice a week it isn’t because I don’t want to but because I don’t have time to. I’m a single woman so I don’t have a lot of excuses when it comes to time management but recently have been working several jobs and making time for my blog is getting harder and harder so…
4) I’m going down to part-time at my current full-time job! I am super excited to be cutting back at my curent job. This blog can, in no way, support me but I have a lot of super exciting opportunities opening up to me and want to allow myself more time to work on the things I enjoy doing, namely this blog. So good news, I will have more time to do projects, to write posts, and in general be a better blogger.
