Hi there! Friday is my anything goes topic day, so here goes:
I’m thinking about starting a cocktail series, what do you guys think? I had so much fun creating Monday’s post for the Creative Collective prompt. I found the whole process really enjoyable. I liked playing around with the picture setup, and the graphics. It may come as a shock to some of you, but we rarely have liquor drinks at home, so it is somewhat new territory, though I might have done
plenty a little research on the topic 😉
I’ve been putting less time into trying to socialize in the blogging world. I love all of you and clearly I want people to read my blog and I enjoy reading other people’s blogs but pushing myself about it is beginning to feel like a chore. I’m still trying to find a good balance with growing, and finding blogs and bloggers I really enjoy connecting with. I’ve always been a do my own thing kind of girl…I don’t like to follow the pack or be fake. I guess I’m just trying to say, it is hard sometimes to find bloggers I know that I will click with. Blogging is weird and it is taking me a while to get use to socializing on the internet 🙂
I appreciate all of you who take the time to read and the effort to comment…especially when I know it on a topic you could care less about…so thank you , thank you!
I’m a bit relieved that my Let’s Fly Away Series is coming to an end. I’m planning on doing one or two more on the logistics of the trip…like where we stayed, how we got around, and packing but for the most part it is completed. Yay #4 on my 101 list done!!
I’m beginning to think that having so many set scheduled posts may not be for me. I want to post what I feel like posting not necessarily posting on Wednesday because I said I would post travel on Wednesday. There will still be travel just maybe not on Wednesdays 🙂 I don’t know. Plus I might want to join all the cool kids and do a HumpDay Confession with Vodka & Soda 🙂 I know that posting on certain days is supposed to be good for your blog but it’s feeling a bit constraining.
I still like reading tips on blogging but sometimes I feel like the rules are so overwhelming. Rachelle over at Inner Loop Adventures wrote a good post on Run Social Media So It Doesn’t Run You; #5 really resonated with me. I still trying to figure out what works best for me.
Speaking of social media, I’m really debating about joining Google +. Does anyone want to give their two-cents on this?
I swear I already had this post drafted but Miriam’s post yesterday on Why You Shouldn’t Blog really hit a lot of what I’m feeling. A bit of “it was the best of times it was the worst of time” is my feeling currently. I think it is just that I want more time in general 🙂 There are so many things I want to learn and do.
Thanks for listening (umm… reading)! I wanted to get a few things out of my head, but would love to get a little feedback on any of it 🙂 Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
