Over the past year I have had an amazing time sharing projects and anecdotes about our life. I saw my readership grow and I was actively blogging. But I will be honest, blogging is a lot of work. I have never really had a plan and will sit down, write a blog post and publish it. Occasionally, I would "schedule" a post but I always seem to be flying by the seat of my pants. (To be honest, as soon as I finish typing this, I again will be hitting publish ... no pre-planning on this first day of year either.)
I am working on a schedule for 2012, to make blogging more fun, easy and more intentional. I am a Virgo, I have the need to plan, plan, plan but often end up a bit scattered. So today I am going to share a few blogging resolutions and plans for the years.
Goal #1: Eating Better and trying new things.
On Mondays I will share our food inspiration - it could be a menu plan, a recipe, a favorite food or drink, etc. If it is food related, we will spill it on Monday.
Goal #2: Continue to make our house our home.
Tuesday will be all about how-to. I love to craft, decorate and DIY so I can't wait to show you how I do the project of the week.
Goal #3: Be more spontaneous and check off a few bucket list items.
Taking advantage of life and living in the moment is so important. I don't want us to miss an opportunity so while I love to plan, sometimes you need a day to do whatever. On Wednesday I will share our life's adventures. I may share a bonus project or ramble on about whatever. You never know what I might say!
Goal #4: Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose ... more!
Thursday will be all about being thrifty. I love to go to thrift stores, repurpose items or make something out of nothing. I also like to find thrifty ways to do things we love. So I can't wait to share this one. I also look forward to making 2012 greener for our family.
Goal #5: Find my inner beauty and style...on a budget!
Friday will be about finding my style. Face it, as a stay at home Mom the last 6.5 years my style (not that I was ever a fashionista) has become a bit "sloppy". Hanging around Pinterest, watching some great talk-show segments and perusing Goodwill, I know I can find my style and dress and feel better in 2012! Of course, I will share my adventures.
Goal #6: Do more of the things I love.
I love to scrapbook and chronicle our lives with paper crafting. Sadly, I have not spent much time doing this in 2011 so in 2012 I will get back in the saddle. I can't wait to share some of my layouts and inspiration.
Goal #7: Be inspired and inspire others.
I am a beginner photographer and have a lot of fun learning to use my camera. I look forward to learning more in 2012. I have decided to take on a Project 365 photography challenge. Project 365 is simple, take one photo each day. Whatever inspires you. Whatever moves you. Whatever you are doing. Finding beauty in the mundane. I will share some of my photos on Sunday as well as other photos that inspire me.
