(What does this photo have to do with this post? Nothing really. Just felt like sharing another tulip photo with you.)
I've been doing a lot of thinking about my little blog here in the last few weeks. Keeping up with my posting schedule has been much more difficult with Little Pea around. I have less time in general for my sewing and crafting, etc. than I used to and my cooking feels more like a survival technique than an experimentation. Finding sources of inspiration comes in fits and spurts and I worry whether I'm keeping up an interesting enough little spot to warrant your attention.
Just as my confidence is starting to wane a bit, I came across The Creative Mama's "Blogging 101" eBook. In her intro to this free download she shares her love of blogging and what it has brought to her life. I'm so inspired by her tips and even after 2 years of my own blogging, I picked up more than a few ideas from her helpful document.
I'm sharing this awesome resource for two reasons:
1. I'm guessing maybe just maybe there is a reader or two that stops by that has toyed with starting up her own blog but doesn't know where to start. Start here. It is a simple and fantastic explanation of the options you'll face. And then be sure to let me know your new blog home so I can follow you!
2. One of my favorite tips from Bree's eBook is to ask your readers about what they'd like to see more of on your blog. If I were to make some changes around here, what would you like to see? I'm starting to noodle over some pretty big changes, but I'd love input from the people who make the effort to actually read this blog. Is there a topic you'd like to see more of? Feel free to comment or message me privately, whichever suits you best.
And because I don't say it nearly often enough:
Thank you to YOU. Thank you for taking time from your day to stop by. Thank you for any comment you may have ever left me. I've read each and every one and they always make my day. You all are the motivation that keeps me writing and posting. I may write this blog as an outlet for me, but it is all because of you.
