2013 has been an interesting year for me creatively. I have SO MANY ideas for a million different projects. However, I feel like time management and execution have become difficult for me. So here’s what goes down: I have an idea, but I don’t have the time (or feel like I don’t have the time, or focus) to go through any kind of process with it, so consequently, it’s not perfectly executed…and I don’t want to share it with anyone.
I love to blog. I love having a place to keep all of my ideas and inspirations, to share struggles and triumphs, and to document fun times!….But I have the desire to blog better.
I don’t need to be a pro-blogger. But I do want a blog space that I can be really proud of and that represents me really well. I think it’s about time to learn some new things about the blog world, pair that up with some new skills, time set aside specifically in my week for planning/brainstorming/focusing on this blog.
Firstly : Time
I always have every intention of spending a lot of time and energy creating content, taking photos, staging DIYs to share….and then life happens. Things get in the way, I find that I ”don’t have time”…even for myself. So, I will be making time for myself and this blog. I feel that making time for meaningful blogging that I can enjoy processing through, and be proud of right now and for years……will be so worth it.
There have been weeks that I have had a bit more time and an extra spring in my blogging step….I look through the posts from the weeks that are like that, those blogging weeks that truly represent me. Every post has honest, creative writing that screams ” this is Sara! ” ….those weeks feel awesome.
Research, Research, Research…
I have a ton of random inspirations floating around in my mind, and when I’m having a hard time putting them together within my blog in a cohesive, thought out way…I look to the experts. The talented blogging ladies that I admire: Elsie of A Beautiful Mess, Bri of Design Lovefest , and Gala Darling of Gala Darling. Each of these lovely ladies have beautifully branded blogs filled with lovely images and just spilling over with information (and cuteness!). I read a lot of blogs. A lot. My google reader if full guys…but these lovely ladies share their blogging knowledge so freely. As I try to spruce up my blogging workflow ….I soak up the knowledge.
