As soon as I revive my blog, I take a "mental health" weekend... makes sense, right? Eh... Sometimes you just need time to recharge & avoid the interwebz & all that goes along with it.
How will I treat my blog differently this time around? It would be nice to say I have a gameplan for it, but well... I don't. I do know how I will treat it (& myself!) differently than I did, when I had it previously.
No more all day, errrday
I am not having blog e-mails forwarded to my phone. I know. I know. I will check my emails when I log in, on my laptop- that includes blog comments, too! I just find that it becomes overwhelming & can almost just take over your day- & I'm not about that life!
Must. Post. Daily. At. 8. AM. EST.
Well... that was my theory. It makes blog posts feel forced & annoying. I will aim to post daily, just because I really truly loooovvvveeee blogging & writing in general- but I can't make myself feel forced to do it.
I connected with quite a few women, my last go-around- I want to do the same this time! A lot of people either aren't blogging anymore, or are blogging less frequently, so I really need to make an effort to get to know new people, too! I'm really excited about that!
Things were, well, different 2 years ago in the blogosphere... So, I'll have to get used to the changes again. Not to say it's good or bad- I just need to adapt to using Bloglovin a bit more, I think!
I really do think it's important for every blogger to feel like their blog is... well... THEIRS. & that means adapting it (& their blogging style, really) to accommodate their life & make them happy.
HIIIIIII I MISS BLOGGING OMG IT'S BEEN LIKE TWO YEARS.
...now that I got that out of the way, hi! If you don't remember me, I'm sorry- & I don't blame you. If you do remember me, hi!
Yes, I did delete all of my old posts- there were some very... personal... feelings within them, & rather than go through them all, I deleted them, as this blog will probably be more open to my family & friends.
Regardless- I did a blog makeover, & I wanted to say hi to you all. So... hi! I miss y'all!
As for the new (ok not really) direction of this blog? I'll be posting everyday(ish), back to a lot of my old things- random thoughts, attempts at inspiration, doggie posts, all along those lines. Also maybe leaning towards some minor DIY, my bargainista ways, etc... but I don't want to pigeon-hole anything, because Lord knows my mind changes more than the weather in Kentucky.
