Not Much, What's Up With You?
Just popping in to say HELLO! I've survived quite possibly the busiest month of the last 5 years and I'm happy to say that I'm still alive! I've had so many ideas for what I want to do with this blog but no time to implement any of them so now that things are settling down I thought I'd stop in and say hello and give an update of what's been going on and what's to come!
So for the last 4 months I've been thinking about the direction I want to take the blog in. I teeter back and forth over going full lifestyle blog and then get overwhelmed because the bar has definitely been raised in the lifestyle blog department since I started blogging 10-ish years ago (good Lord!) and I'm not sure I've got the chops to keep up!
Then I think about making this just a source for info. But yawn. How boring is that right? I mean, I share the most of my life on Instagram but I can't really flush out my thoughts there like I can here which is what I love about blogging in general (hence this stream of consciousness post, sorry blog snobs!) so I can't completely abandon that.
So what to do? What to do? I've learned so much this last year and grown so much personally. I feel like I've really been able to let go of a lot of the bullshit I held onto as I built my photography business and built my various past blogs. So with my newfound wisdom (ha!) I have decided to let this blog be what it is. To not try to force it into any sort of special definition or try to push it to be anything it's not. I'd love to say I have the energy to keep it up like a magazine with features and DIY's and photoshoot but right now I just don't have the time for that. Or maybe I do, but it's just not a priority. And I have no desire to use it as an information dumping ground just so that google can index it. That's so not me.
What is me? Well, I'm glad you asked. I'm learning more and more that when I strive to keep up with the joneses, I just water down my own ideas and message. Or worse, run myself ragged trying to out-do everyone else. No fun. I'm not working this hard to build an empire so that I can run myself into the ground in the comparison game. Nope nope nope.
So, I really hope that you'll bookmark me and come back over the upcoming weeks. I'll be using the blog to share the ups and downs, the ins and outs of not only my life transformation over the last two years (and whatever comes in the upcoming ones) but also to show you what I've learned, how I make it work, and take you on this journey with me.
So if you have ever wondered what it's like to be a self employed creative. To juggle wife/mom/entrepreneur/and artist... you're in the right place. You'll find babbles, mystic-infused mental dumps, and probably a lot of photos from my iPhone, let's just be honest.
I can't wait to get you caught up and share as I go. This is shaping up to be one of the most exciting years I've had and I want to bring you along for the fun! Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon. xo.
