I don’t want to get ahead of the process and I don’t want to jinx anything. I hesitated because I am just fearful that something could go wrong but I am too excited to keep quiet…
It was all kind of sudden. Last year we had our house on the market for quite a while and nothing came of it. This time, we put our house on the market, stuck a sign in the yard, and got an offer 24 hours later. It is a true God story, complete with rainbows, that I will wait to tell until after it fully transpires.
We are three weeks away from our new home and things are somewhat busy around here. In addition to packing and simplifying, I am also trying to finish some design work, cheer at my boys’ baseball games, attend all of the student events that happen at this time of year, and still have time to breathe.
All of that to say I am still here! I’ll just be posting sporadically for a while. I have been posting a lot of giveaways and sponsored posts but that won’t be a regular thing here. I just figured now was a good time to offer them to you. Once I get back to regular posting they will be few and far between. I blog because I love it and I enjoy getting to know y’all. I don’t do it to make you a number on a list that gets me additional funds for advertising.
I’ll be changing my blog up a bit when I return regularly. I am taking a very different direction with my online presence. I want it to be about the people and the relationships. I want it to be about you; us. We work well together don’t you think?
You won’t find any “follow me for a chance to win” or any of that stuff. I want you to be here because you find value in what I offer or because you have something you genuinely want to share with me and others about the topics I write about. I’m so over the gimmicks. Though I will still take on a few sponsors, I won’t be focused on advertising or promotion so having the additional subscribers & followers isn’t necessary. I want to build relationships with those of you who followed because you are generally interested. Reputable large companies frown on that type of promotion anyway.
I have felt in limbo for the last couple of years because we have been planning to buy a new house for that long. I’ve had stuff packed, avoided making too many changes (that wouldn’t reap a return profit), and just had the “when we get in our new home” frame of mind. I finally feel free.
With the purchase of the new house I will have lots of decorating, design, and gardening posts. Stuff I have wanted to blog about for a long time. Oh my, you should see my boards on Pinterest. I’ll also have the kitchen I’ve always wanted so I will finally be posting all of my good ol’ Cajun recipes. You’ll also see my regular stuff: organization, printables, DIY, natural cleaning, and inspiration. I do hope you’ll join me!
