2012 was a doozy of a year, my husband graduated and started a job, I got to try a lot of maternity and post maternity refashions and tutorials on my blog, I started a job, and most of all I had my baby Oliver.
Looking back, there are a few things I’ve learned over the past year. My only regret is basically letting my blog stay at a stand still. I didn’t do anything to promote myself, I didn’t re-brand my blog or re-do my design, I just blogged. I want to blame that on being pregnant/having a baby. But I think that is NO excuse. I lost an entire year! I mean, I could be in a whole different place right now if I didn’t have so many walls of excuses and I wasn’t so limited by my own indecisiveness.
On the other hand, not putting my blog first gave me a whole new outlook on life. I realized, if something effects my family life then just let it be and finish it another time, the stress/anger/annoyance/frustration needs to be temporarily forgotten and set aside until I do have time to finish. Family is number one. This year I enjoyed family. I didn’t blog everyday, I didn’t think about my blog every minute. I had fun! I was stress-free most (some) of the time. And I thank you guys for letting me do that. For being patient with me, being there for me, and leaving me uplifting comments and emails. Although I do not respond or comment back all the time, I do read everything, and I appreciate it all. THANK YOU THANK YOU.
Over the last month or so (really since last spring), I have been thinking about my future goals and plans with the blog, a career, an education, and my family. I have a lot of things in the workings and I’m hoping you guys will be there to jump on board…mainly because my blog is going to give you guys a VOICE! I’m excited! I’m hoping by mid January, these new goals will make themselves known and you all will come be a part of it.
This year is going to be different in a good way….I can feel it. I’m letting the walls down. Woot woot! 2013 is going to be a great, great year!! I hope you will be there for the ride.
And now for the finale………….
These were my favorite (yes there are many, but I had a hard time choosing) tutorials over the past year.
