Last night—as I was fervently typing away, answering emails, getting new ads up, photo editing, etc.—Daniel, who had been sitting on the couch waiting for me to finish so we could hang out, said to me, "Aunies? I think it's time to give up blogging."
But actually, I get where he's coming from. Some nights, I'm engrossed in it. I can easily lose hours and hours spending time editing, writing, and planning for this little space. It's kind of ridiculous. And, with all of the other things Daniel and I have been talking about for our future, there may come a point where blogging just doesn't fit... but that's an entirely different topic, and if those plans end up being put to action, I'll be sure to keep you in the loop.
So, what does a girl do when her husband tells her that he wants her to quit blogging? She gets some new design elements installed. I mean, what's better than a little blog pick-me-up?
Enter Kristen (of KV's Confessions and KV's Design Studio). She and I have been blog-friends since 2011 when I first started. She's a dream to work with and really gave me that little oomph I was looking for. If you're looking for any new design elements (header & navbar—that's what I picked—blog buttons, profile pic, sidebar titles, or even an entirely new look), she is your lady.
/ / And now, because it's Friday, here's a little bonus to kick-off your weekend. I've been contacted by a by a marketing
group to help with a blogging research & publishing project (trust me, it's legitimate). The
study involves a quick survey, and it's going to be used for a book about bloggers. The survey is for active bloggers and takes less than 2-minutes. As an incentive to take the survey, they're giving away a $20 Visa gift card. To take the survey, CLICK HERE. They need a couple hundred more responses to give accurate data, so share the survey with your blog friends if you can! Also, don't forget to enter your blog name and first name in Question 1 to be entered for the gift card giveaway.
