Itâ€™s been a while since I updated my blog regularly even though Iâ€™ve been jotting down all the topics Iâ€™d like to talk about but, just hadnâ€™t had the chance to sit down and get my thoughts together to type it. Being a working mom while running a business and raising four children can really make you put things on hold for a little while, and before you can get back in your groove you just have to relax and get your thoughts together. The month of June was a really BUSY month for me. I planned one of my companyâ€™s biggest corporate events that we host annually and that took a majority of my time in June. Planning and coordinating community events is a tough JOB! The event was successful and the turnout was GREAT! So for those who donâ€™t know Iâ€™m a Marketing/ Promotions Coordinator for an alternative weekly newspaper. I handle the promotions and events we sponsor, co-sponsor or host. I also run a graphic design, consulting, marketing business and I design and work in the evenings and on weekends.
Now I find myself perplexed on how to pick up where I left off in the blogosphere! I was fortunate enough to attend the Type A Parent Conference last month and the amount of information I received has me wanting to upgrade and really fine tune my blog. Iâ€™m also thinking of dropping my niche since I seem to write more like a lifestyle blogger than a niche blogger thatâ€™s totally addicted to social media! I like to cover many topics and I really have no desire to start another blog in addition to this one. I have so many other things to do, I think it would get neglected because my stuff always gets put on the back burner. Iâ€™ve also had some opportunities come up and I think not putting my content in a box is going to work for me, besides Iâ€™m always the one screaming â€œThink outside the boxâ€! With that being saidâ€¦ Iâ€™m going to give myself a deadline to redesign my blog and incorporate my upgrades. You all can critique and give me your honest opinions when Iâ€™m done. There will be a HUGE announcement!
I also invite you to critique my blog the way it is and give me your thoughts. I have no problem receiving creative criticism and taking your ideas into consideration for the direction Iâ€™m trying to move my blog towards. Iâ€™m a very indecisive individual so that can very well be another reason Iâ€™m feeling so stagnant at the moment. I have so many ideas and nowhere near making a decision on what to do next, which irritates me because I can work diligently on a clientâ€™s blog/ website and have creative input to help them achieve their goals along with getting the project completed within a deadline but, not for myself. Iâ€™m sure there are other graphic designers that feel my pain at that last comment. However, to make things just a tad bit easier I am going to vlog on a weekly schedule and really try and stick to my editorial calendar. I know that things happen but, I donâ€™t want to just STOP and get stuck again because thatâ€™s exactly the way I feel right now. So, let me focus and resurrect my new improved blog! Coming Soonâ€¦
