|It all Started With Paint|
Lets start off at the beginning shall we...... I started blogging back in 2008 not sure what I wanted to do with this blog other than having a place for my family and friends to view the craft projects I have completed. Fast forward a few years and I find my blog a place that I use for socializing. I have followed and made friends with so many talented creative ladies. Press the fast forward button again and that brings us to today. With me contemplating what I want my blog to be when it grows up.
What do I want my Blog to be when it grows up?
I want my blog to have value. I want to set goals to make my blog have some type of purpose that is fun and practical. What I've observed lately on my blog is that a few of my project tutorials have been pinned and re pinned on Pinterest. I've given some thought to making some video tutorials so that you can see the complete process of these projects.
I want my blog to be clear and well written. I would like people to come and visit my blog and read my posts to the end. I would like to find some avenues to improve my writing. In the past I've taken workshops to improve my writing for my journals on my scrap book pages and I've found that they were very helpful. My favorite class was taught by Ali Edwards called Storyology. I've even thought about taking some type of class in order to improve my writing. I've always enjoyed writing so what do I have to lose right.
I've kind of borrowed this idea from Linda at It all Started with Paint blog. I want to grow my followers and have this be a blog where people want to keep coming back to. I would love to be more involved in party link ups like this one and maybe even hosting one too. I also want to host give a ways. I love give a ways and get excited for the chance to win. Maybe I can find sponsors so that can happen.
I want this to be a blog that is fun and that builds friendships. A place that we can gather to collaborate on ideas and give each other inspirations. By participating in blog hops, link up parties and so on. I want to be genuine, and real - because let's face it not every project, picture or post is 100% perfect I want you to see the real me.
Last but not least I want my blog content to be retrieved easily. I want to give more thought to the tags I give to each post so that when some one wants to retrieve a post regarding a certain project or post content that they don't get frustrated and give up. I want my blog to look neat and inviting to people.
I'm so glad that I decided to participate in this link up party. It gave me a lot to think about and things to strive for.
