Ok, here’s the deal; I’ve been blogging for 3+ years now and I’m still not happy with my blog. It’s a total love/hate relationship. Pretty sure a lot of bloggers will agree with me on that one. Blogging is such a whirlwind and it’s a different experience for everyone. There are also so many different types of bloggers…
Fashion bloggers, Mom bloggers, DIY bloggers, Productivity bloggers, Marketing bloggers, actual Writer bloggers, Photography bloggers, Homesteading bloggers, Fitness bloggers…..
You’re getting my point right? I need help. Yes, help. I’m not too proud to ask for help. (I used to be too proud. I wanted to do everything on my own and claim myself as the almighty independent woman, etc. etc. but I’m over that. I need help.)
There are so many bloggers out there creating noise, developing products and sharing their world with the rest of the world. I think that’s super cool and that’s why I started blogging. I’m an over-sharer at heart. My first blog was a mess. It was all over the place. Originally I wanted to join the fashion blogger circle. People would always tell me they loved my outfits and I took pleasure in shopping, but then I realized it was just a vicious, superficial cycle which I didn’t love. Then I wanted to focus on diy’s and creating stuff. That quickly became too expensive and time-consuming. (If you think blogging in general is an ‘easy way’ to make money, you are sorely mistaken.) Every time I would softly ‘re-brand’ my blog, it just didn’t feel right. It all felt superficial, not me and just uninspired. Which would explain why my blog has never experienced the growth that I wanted.
So last year I took a small break. When I rebranded at the beginning of last year I felt I had finally found my place. We were downsizing and completely transforming our lifestyle. What a great reason to blog! It’s been better since rebranding the blog, but I still feel like I have so much to say/share. I just haven’t found my stride.
This is where I need your help.
I love blogging and don’t want to throw in the towel just yet, but I’m getting close. What I think I need is some better direction, I need to know what YOU want from me! Do you love hearing about tiny living? Are my motivational posts what get you going? Do you need help downsizing and decluttering? Would you like to see more of me and the businesses I’m working on? Could you handle a bit more of my dry, irreverent(slightly intoxicated) humor? I want to make this blog a badass place people can rely on for useful, funny and different content, but only if that’s what you want.
So to help me out, would you take 1 minute out of your day and submit your answers in this survey? Thank you in advance! I can’t wait to bring a new and improved version of Lauren Jade Lately to everyone.
