You guys, I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of in a blogging funk. I’m also going to be honest and say that it’s becoming hard to come up with three blog posts a week since it’s just me who works on the blog (I don’t have contributors or assistants).
So, what are are some topics, projects, round ups, etc. you’re interested in me covering?
Thank you very much to those of you who took the time to replied. I got some really great comments and suggestions. And if you have more suggestions please leave them in the comment section!
A lot of readers have told me that they love my baby related posts, and I’m so glad you like them, but I know those posts don’t apply to everyone. I started the blog as a home and DIY blog, and I feel like I’ve shifted to more of a DIY and lifestyle blogger now. I don’t want to turn off certain readers who signed up for a home and DIY blog by posting baby stuff all the time thus labeling me a mommy blogger, so I try to limit myself to one baby related post per week.
I also received a couple of comments that made me feel better about not being able to keep up with everything like I used to. You see, before I had Owen I didn’t have a round-the-clock job. I had time to work my day job, do blog stuff, take care of our home, run errands whenever I felt like it, and be a wife. But now that we have Owen, I’m a mom 24/7 so it’s hard to keep up with everything else because the roles of mom and wife come first to me.
Countless people have told me to relish infancy with Owen because it passes by very quickly so I’m taking full advantage of that. I still can’t believe it’s been 5 months. Seriously you guys, the time zooms by. But I can say I’ve loved every second of it. Our master bathroom vanity is a hot mess (because of me– sorry Brad), and I can’t tell you the last time I dusted and polished the dresser in our bedroom, but I’m letting some things go so I can enjoy moments with Owen during the day and time with Owen and Brad when Brad gets home from work. I even went so far as to buy a new laptop for Christmas so I could at least sit with Brad and Owen in our living room at night while I kept up with blog stuff instead of being chained to my desktop computer in my home office.
I think as a woman, wife, mom, and blogger I want to be able to have it all. I’d love to be one of those chicks who goes to bed at 10PM, wakes up at 5AM, works out, has a balanced breakfast, gets her baby up, feeds, and cares for him, goes to story time at the library, followed by a trip to the grocery store– all while not wearing yoga pants. And then, while the baby naps, she answers emails, vacuums, starts a project for a blog post, and eats lunch. When the baby wakes from the nap, she plays with him until her husband gets home. While her husband watches the baby, she prepares a lovely dinner. See where I’m going here?
But you know what, I’m not one of those chicks. I’m rarely in bed before midnight. I’d rather snuggle my baby on the couch than wash the kitchen floor. I don’t wear make up every day. Some days I never put on real pants, meaning non-yoga pants. And if I have a little ‘me time’ during nap time I like to watch an episode of Downton Abbey.
Okay, now I feel like I’m blabbering. And I don’t really know where I’m going with this. I guess what I’m trying to say is my life isn’t perfect, and sometimes I get into funks just like anyone else.
Since the direction of the blog has changed slightly, I’d like to know what you guys like reading about. I feel like getting suggestions, feedback, and ideas will help me.
What are some topics, projects, round ups, etc. you’re interested in me covering? It can be stuff I’ve been covering or stuff I haven’t touched on before.
