a lazy weekend is just what the doctor ordered!
taylor and i hung out in our jammies for most of saturday morning…we watched legends of the fall, i caught up on emails, he played his nintendo ds… i felt like a bum, but ended up getting a lot accomplished!
we finally ventured out into the sunlight, but only long enough to run an errand and snap a few photos. (morgan, this backdrop is dedicated to you!)
saturday evening we finished season 3 of lost! today we’re planning to start season 4! no spoilers, please! (i know, lots of exclamation points, but it’s exciting!! that show is crazy bananas.)
i’m also planning to list a few items in the shop. so maybe stop by later today or tomorrow. thanks! the 20% discount is still good for 3 more days!
um…i kinda need to get something off my chest…
over the last couple of weeks, i’ve stumbled across a few blogs where the authors have shared what they think is blog appropriate.
meaning…how long a post should be, what the photos should look like, even content dos and don’ts – what’s okay to share and what’s not.
here’s what i think…
blogs are a very personal space. sure, when you put your thoughts on the internet, people are bound to find them and may even comment. essentially though, blogging started out as a virtual “journal”, if you will. a place where anyone can share anything! recipes, photos, ideas, life experiences, advice, etc…it can be therapeutic in a way. and when people respond and share their thoughts, connections are made.
in the “fashion” blogging world, i’m sure it’s a tad different. most people do want to see photos of outfits and that’s about it; however, as you get to know someone, virtually or not, you want to know more! it becomes a space for sharing and talking. quite frankly, most of us aren’t solely about what we wear. we have lives, kids, husbands, family problems, work issues, epiphanies, travels to be shared and so on so forth.
i think it’s only natural that you start to share more of yourself.
so to those people who don’t want to hear people like me bitching or complaining or sharing personal experiences…you don’t have to read my blog.
simple as that, kids.
i just don’t think you should let anyone tell you what your blog should be about or how it should look. and if you’re just starting out…it’s your space, do what you want! if you are you…people will dig what you’re puttin’ out there.
oh and ps, in regards to my spider post…i’m really not a mean spider killer! in fact, i actually have a weird soft spot for bugs and creatures. snails for example…i think they’re cute. i hate it when people throw them or smash them or put salt on them…it’s mean! however, there are a few bugs that creep me out so much so, that if i see one in my home…my first instinct is to smash them. spiders, pincher bugs and any type of beetle. i know spiders kill other bugs, but when they’re in my home, i just feel like they’re having a party in my bed or on my face while i’m fast asleep. eeeeeeeeee. gross.
