A better title for this post may be "thoughts that are maybe not all related, but pertain to blogging so I'll put them here." Mainly, ever since I read this post on Design Sponge about the current state of blogging earlier in the week, I've been thinking about my little space on the internet. It actually really touched on many thoughts I've been having about the blog, what I've been writing, and what I want to write.
The truth is, ever since I transitioned away from being a food/health blogger, I've been trying to figure out how to best define the content I want to share in my little corner of the blog world. I know I need to step up my game and truly create a defined, unique space, and well, I've been second-guessing a lot of decisions made about my blog over the past year or so. I chose, for personal reasons, not to really blog about my wedding as I was planning it, and looking back, I wish I had written more about some of our struggles - like planning a wedding in a small town while we live in a big city, or planning hours away during a very very busy year (and while one of us was working with a business-travel-heavy sort of year).
Now that we're well beyond that, the holidays are over, and we're rapidly moving into February and approaching my birthday, I really want to focus on how I want to develop this space. I've written so many posts about recreating the blog that I worry about posting another, but this is something I have been thinking really hard about since my last post. It's why I have not posted in over a week. I want this blog to be representative of what I care about, but more importantly, I want it to be a space where you - my readers - can come and enjoy.
Lately, I've been thinking about my verbs for this year and how I want to represent them moving forward. I'm already working on throwing myself head-first into more photography than before, along with scribbling down on paper ideas for future blog content, posts, and collaborations I would love to do sometime down the line.
I write all of this to say that yes, you will see changes on the blog. The name is staying the same (at least for now), the layout is not changing, but the content may be a little different. It will still, for sure, be lifestyle-geared, but there will be more about adjusting to married life and being, well, an adult. More about life with more than two pets and adapting to busy travel schedules. It will be, I hope, more resourceful and less personal, though you will still find personal posts scattered throughout. Tuesday Tunes should be sticking around, because music does make up a huge part of my life and my day-to-day.
So maybe these weren't so random thoughts, but changes are a-coming. I hope you'll stick around to see.
