I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday! We took down our Christmas decorations, cleaned our garage, and then met my brother and sister-in-law for dinner!
Anyway, like everyone else, I have some goals for 2016. The usual goals include losing weight, getting in shape, getting out of debt, etc. but the other goals include this blog. I've been thinking a lot about whether or not I should let it go and walk away or give it all I've got and see where it takes me.
In 2015, I was planning our wedding and didn't have much time or money to devote to blogging. I took an extended break and came back to crickets. My page views had dropped, my readers had moved on, and you could practically hear a pin drop in my comments section. Don't get me wrong – I'm not surprised that any of those things happened (I only posted 38 times after all), I was just sad they did because I guess I just thought things wouldn't be so bad when I came back.
When I started posting again, it felt like I was starting over from square one. My motivation to continue kept fading away because it seemed like no one cared about my posts/projects anymore. I know bigger and better blogs are emerging everyday and there's a lot of blogs to read which can be overwhelming but I hope I can get my blog back to where it was before I left it. I feel like I owe it, and you, that :)
All that to say, my blogging goal for 2016 is to post 5 days a week, starting on Monday!
Here's my new weekly schedule:
Mondays will be dedicated to the re-launch of my "Must Make List", a series I started back in July 2014. I'll be featuring 3 different blogger's projects I want to make each week.
Tuesdays will be known as "Tutorial Tuesday". I'll be sharing a DIY project, a quick tip, or a how to post with you!
Wednesdays will be known as "What I'm Doing Wednesday". I'll be filling you in on a house project or e-design project I'm working on.
Thursdays will continue to be my "Thrift Score Thursday" days.
Fridays will be dedicated to "Finds and Facts". I'll be sharing my favorite finds (projects and products) from around the Interwebs + a fact or two about me so you can get to know me better! :)
I feel like I can make this happen but I also feel like I could burn out in March so bear with me as I try this whole "blogging 5 days a week" thing on for size!
Also, I don't know why I feel the need to mention this but I do have a full-time job in addition to the blog and my e-design services so I may miss a day or two. I'm really am going to try my hardest to stick to the new schedule though so I hope you'll stick around to see what I'll be posting this year!
