Over the holidays I took a look over some of my older post from when I first started blogging to recent posts. I’ve seen a lot of growth over the past 2 years and a lot of changes.
I finally have a blog layout/design that I love! I’ve come to terms with the fact that I am not a M-F blogger, that I need to make time for my family and myself. So I blog when I can. This doesn’t mean blogging isn’t important but I was having really bad anxiety trying to keep up with the “status quo” before instead of doing what I can, when I can.
One thing I am not satisfied with though is my content. I feel as though I haven’t really found my blogging ‘voice’. I like fashion, make up, and shopping; but that’s not all I love and I want this blog to be a reflection of who I really am. I just don't feel like I share all of my true self on here.
I’ve been thinking really hard about who that person is and how I want to represented on my little corner of the World Wide Web. So please be patient with me as I find my footing. There will be some changes on here in regards to content and posts. I will still do some outfit posts and share some of my shopping wants but I want to include other aspects of my life as well. Recipes, family life, hobbies, etc…there is so much more to me than what I wore today :) [This is not to say that there is ANYTHING wrong with just blogging outfits! I lurve reading outfit posts and getting new styling ideas!]
When I look back on my blog in the future I want it to be like an album of memories. Special moments in my life that I don’t want to forget, all while wearing fabulous shoes! *wink* =)
I’m so excited about a book I ordered, Blog Inc!
Have any of you read it before? I think reading it will help me to figure out what direction I want to take Shabby, Chic, and Cheap and how to get there. I'm so excited about finding my blogging voice!
Thank you all for reading my thoughts and supporting me thus far! I’m hoping that 2014 will be a year of positive changes and experiences!
