Blogging plans (for after my bloggiversary)
In a post I did in April, I mentioned that my blog was originally something I only planned to do for a year, in the run up to my fortieth birthday. (To read what on earth I'm talking about, click here.) And I mentioned that I would have to make a decision over whether to carry on, as I couldn't imagine not blogging any more - I have made sooo many fabulous bloggy friends along the way.
So, as Not Dressed As Lamb (NDAL) will be one and I will be 40 in less than a month, I have made a decision about what to do. (Oh and thank you to those of you that begged me not to stop! So very sweet of you!) And the decision is.... of course I'm going to carry on. Did you really think I wouldn't? ;)
But there is a but...
When I started I never envisaged how much time the blog would take up; believe me I absolutely doing love it - it's reignited my love of photography for a start - but I've worked out I need to recharge my batteries and have a more bit time away from this computer screen (I work on one all day at work too).
For want of a better expression: I'm taking a blog sabbatical, like having the summer holidays off school, if you will. However, there will not be a big gap over the summer at NDAL, as I'm going to pre-schedule a whole bunch of posts for the end of July to the beginning of September, probably posting every three to four days. I am going to continue to do outfit posts (I've been building them up, which is why I'm currently posting outfits worn a week or two ago). I'm also going to write a few fashion/style/image based posts - or Musings as I call them - maybe a vlog or two so you can laugh at my boring English accent - and a mini series of photography tips posts that I have been requested to do a few times... I knew I did that photography degree for something!!!
And finally NDAL will get a bit of a makeover. Now that I feel safe in saying I'm no longer a rookie blogger, I can let loose the surpressed graphic designer in me and get creative to make it work better for my needs. All in all it's a mini break for me, but lots to see and read for you guys. Of course I will still come check out everyone else's blogs and comment - that's another thing I want more time for! So that's the plan, I hope it will please everyone who was fretting (haha).
I'm happy to take suggestions for posts that I haven't mentioned: is there anything you would like to see me post about? Let me know in your comments!
