Between a new baby, finishing my second book a month ago, and Mr Danger starting his new awesome job, I have been doing a lot of thinking and planning the last few weeks. Since I have less time than I used to, I have been getting really serious about what is important to me. Of course this means a few changes.
Remember my New Year's Resolution, balance? Well, I have been focusing on it and it is actually working out pretty good so far. Because of that I have decided to change how I blog, in what I think is a really good way. I have come to realize I love blogging, it is such a great way to reach out to a crafty community that I feel understands me. I love the connections I get through this blog, especially through comments (just a little hint there.)
So, I have decided to have themes for each day of the week, based on what I am focusing on in my more "balanced" life. Here we go:
Monday Check In: Check in day. What's up this week, announcements, etc.
Tutorial Tuesday: I get so many knitting questions that I would love to be able to explain more in depth. Also, after writing this last book, I realized I could be explaining everything in more detail, but there just wasn't room to add it in there. I also really, really (really) like to make stuff. So Tuesday's will be dedicated to tutorials: knitting tutorials by me, crafting tutorials by me, and tutorials I find other places and use to make things.
Weigh-In Wednesday: I have lost 45lbs this last year after The Kid got here. No gimmicks, just eating healthy and exercising. Losing weight on your own is no fun, so I am going to talk about healthy recipes and exercise on Wednesday. Whether you are losing weight yourself, or just interested in a healthy lifestyle, I hope this will be informative. And it will keep me on track!
Thursday Knit Night: My weekly Knit Night is Thursday, and since we all know I love knitting, I figured Knit Night was the perfect day of the week for me to dedicate to all things knitting. Patterns I write, patterns I love, yarn, tools, project reports, etc. Thursday will be all about knitting. See this balance thing happening? One day a week dedicated to knitting, rather than every day of the week. What a thought!
Friday Favorites: My normal "This Week I Am Loving" post. Only now renamed "Friday Favorites." I know, I know, every blogger calls it Friday Favorites. But hey, whatever works. Fridays will be dedicated to what ever I am in love with each week.
Style Saturday: I love clothes. And shoes. And bags. And hair and make up. Let's face it, I'm a girl. Saturday will be devoted to style: everything from trends that strike a chord with me, to like this last week's "Knitspiration," to making my own clothes. I'm getting excited just typing that!
Sunday: I take a break. Wow, not working? That truly is crazy coming from me!
None of these are hard and fast rules. I may get behind one day, or move a daily topic to a different day, or what-have-you. But this is the overall plan.
So there you go. Looks pretty good, huh? If you are tricky, you will notice these topics have already been happening on these days this last month. I have really enjoyed it, so I am making it official. I hope it sounds as good to you as it does to me!
