Like most of you, with the advent of the new year I have goals on my mind.
This blog is just over a year old and I've been changing it up a little bit lately. I'm blogging less (it was starting to feel like a job that paid me nothing. I'm trying to take it back into hobby-that-I-enjoy territory) but I'm also trying to make sure that what I DO share here is of a higher quality. No more blogging just for the sake of getting something up because AGH it's a weekday and I have to post!
Janssen and I were g-chatting the other day and she said something that has been on my brain ever since-
fashion BLOGS are really useful
but how long does ONE fashion blog continue to be useful?
She is so very wise, that Janssen.
I've been unsubscribing from quite a few fashion blogs lately. A new post would come up in my reader and I'd go, "Yup. That looks like something she would wear." And then I'd move on. Blogs that I once found incredibly inspiring are feeling a bit stale.
I really don't want to fall into that rut with my readers. Here's the thing- I DO blog for myself. Fashion blogging has made me think of my wardrobe in a whole different way and I am much happier with my personal style now (though I think it will always be a work in progress).
But I also blog for you. I get wonderful e-mails about how I've helped girls out of their post-baby shlump or showed them how they could wear the boots their in-laws got them for Christmas. The e-mails I got after the 21 Day Challenge occasionally made me cry. I thought it would just be a fun little thing to do with you guys but there were some women who really needed that push and it made a huge difference in how they felt about themselves. It made me feel like I was operating a worthwhile corner of the internet over here.
So here's the big question: how can this blog be useful to you in 2012? I have some things in mind that I'll be doing for myself but what would you like to see?
