Guess who’s back? Back again, tell a friend…Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Na-na-na…
I’m so excited to be back to blogging that I even have to rap about it! Now that I’m done being Eminem for a minute, I can tell you I’m officially back to blogging and so happy about it. I’m sure most of you didn’t notice (hopefully, you did) but I took a break for a couple months. It ended up being the best thing ever!
Without going into too many boring details about my much needed break, the quick version is – I have been working a lot. And by a lot, I mean like 60 hrs a week on average since January. I was putting in all those hours, while still updating our home, doing a few DIY projects and trying to keep up and blog about it all. So around May I basically crashed and burned. I was ready to throw in the towel and walk away from it all because let’s be real, there is more important things in life than blogging. But then my wonderful sister sent me this coffee mug…
…and you know what? Blogging is my passion. Even if I gave it up entirely I would still be decorating our home, doing craft projects and DIY’ing my heart out because that’s just who I am. So why not continue to share that part of me? Psst if you would like one of these mugs, get it here!
I refocused my energy and went into “blogging mode”. During my break, I learned
everything, well almost everything there is to know about blogging. I took e-courses, webinars, read e-books, watched videos, studied worksheets, etc. on EVERYTHING blogging. It was like being in college again. I was always taught, if you want to do something right or know everything about a topic, you’ve got to study it. So, that’s exactly what I did.
One thing I learned is this blog isn’t about me, it’s about YOU! My readers are what make this blog a success. Sure, it’s my home, my projects, my decorating style but what I share is for YOU. I want you to learn something, to enjoy reading, to be inspired, etc. so I created a short little survey that will help this blog grow and become better for YOU.
As a little THANK YOU, at the end of the survey is a chance to win a $25 dollar Target gift card. The giveaway will run until Friday, July 8th and winner will be emailed this weekend. I can never give enough thanks for all your continued support and encouragement!
