Hey, hey! Tomorrow is the big party! Are you ready?
Do you know what your blog wants to be when it grows up? That is the question.
I was more thinking…
“Why start a blog?”
Well, I had some, what I thought to be, neat ideas for projects. I had taken about a 2 year hiatus from home improvement after we moved here. Going back to renting after owning for 8 years had kind of put me in a DIY funk. But I was starting to get my groove back, and literally just started having brand new thoughts about our space. Has that ever happened to you? Where I saw no potential before I can now see an organized and functional project space and I envision beautifully accessorized shelving on our bedroom’s bare walls.
Then when I started to create some of my ideas, and photo the process, and explain to friends and family what I was up to…the blog was just a fun next step. An easy way to show people who were interested what I was doin’. A creative outlet where I was learning new things and meeting new people. Fun.
Can you believe that literally every single project that I have completed and linked to the party circuit has been featured at least once?
I can’t. I am so humbled by the experience. So incredibly grateful for all of the support I’ve received. And insanely encouraged.
Which now, finally, begs the questions…What do I want my blog to be when it grows up?
Well, I shared a little about my mindset here…and since I generate every bit of information that goes on this blog…I would have to say the space between and I agree on a lot. ;)
I also just went back to remind myself what I had to say after the first 30 days of blogging, and I’m happy, and a little relieved, to say I feel the same way about it today, after a whopping 4 months. :)
As for the future…
I do know that I want the space between to be a place of inspiration, an idea generator and an encouraging support system for all. I want this space to be a place to find a laugh, learn a few new things and see beautiful pictures of places you may not have been.
I want this space to grow…I’d like to reach as many people as possible, I’d like to align with like-minded bloggers and I’d like to bring to light cool people I meet and neat things that I see along the way.
And, I want the space between to be all of that while consistently providing valuable content that is purposeful, practical and fun. I’d like for it all to be beautiful, but I’m a realist. :) I mean, have you seen my outdoor washing machine?
Now, it’s your turn. I can’t wait to see what your hopes and dreams are for your baby, er…blog.
See you at the party tomorrow!
