2015 goodbyes | 2016 greetings

I’m only 3 days late to the end of year goodbye and Happy New Year post party but your girl was tired. This holiday has consisted of a house full of family up until a few hours ago and a ton of planning and ripping and running. I needed a minute.

2015 was a year of learning and change. I would venture to say 2015 was the year that I figured out and embraced who I am at this point in my life. That feat didn’t come easy. Lots of tears and deep in my feels moments but I tell you, I’m better for it.

This little blog did some amazing things in 2015. For the first time I surpassed my income from when I was working full time and that was no small feat. Thank you to those who come here and share and interact with me. While earning a living from doing this is nice, first and foremost its the true friendships I’ve gained from this space that keep me trying to figure this thing out between sponsored and genuine posts. I think I made headway on that last year. There will continue to be relevant sponsored content in 2016 but at a far lower post count than my genuine lifestyle content.

Speaking of, I’m implementing an editorial schedule of sorts in 2016. It will go as follows:

Monday | Home centric content

Tuesday and Thursday| Sponsored content if applicable or when I am able to dictate the posting date

Wednesday | Ramblings and musings on family and life etc. Video content

Friday | Fashion and/or beauty

Sunday | Weekend happenings and/or Project 365

2016 on paper is looking to be quite amazing for this space.  I’ll be opening an online store in the next few weeks. I have a few more kinks to work out on the back end. Can’t wait to share!

I hope you all had a wonderful year. Again, thank you for hanging in there as I transitioned. I ask only one thing of you this year as I intentionally go about growing this space on the web, if you see a post that you really liked please share! I’ve put a super easy share bar to the left and the bottom of each post. If you are already logged into your social networks it will automatically share with your click. Thanks in advance!

  1. I was just working on my post calendar for the new year! It’s really a big help to know what’s coming up and organize accordingly. Happy New Year! I’m sure 2016 has some great things in store for you.


  2. You go girl! That is a wonderful accomplishment and I’m hoping to soon follow in your footsteps when it comes to blog income. Also, I noticed earlier this year that you changed your blog name and I just have to let you know that I absolutely love it!
