At the end of 2011, I set some goals for How Was Your Day. Basically, I wanted to decide what I wanted to do and re-evaluate the direction my blog was going. I had started to lose the enjoyment of blogging, and I needed to figure out why. I realized it because I was straying from what I wanted HWYD to be.
Originally, I wanted HWYD to be about MEEEE!!!!! Well, and you, my dear readers. That’s why I called it How Was Your Day! I started doing some reviews, then some giveaways…and soon, it was all I was doing. Don’t get me wrong – I love to do reviews and host giveaways. But somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I got totally overwhelmed. All the fun posts that I liked to do were tossed to the side. Then I sort of forgot about them.
I decided that for 2012, I would start blogging more about MEEEEE!!!! Well, and things that I think you would like. More of the trends. More of the how-tos. Some of the fun memes. I also decided that for every review, I was going to do at least one non-review, fun post. I knew I wanted to move to wordpress. And how about a couple of ads to help pay the bills? That would be pretty great, too!
In the words of the immortal Dr Phil – How’s that working for me?
Really, it’s working pretty well! I’ve been able to get back into a couple of the memes – like Wordless Wednesday – and join some new ones – Meet Me on Monday and Fatty Friday are a couple that I’ve been enjoying. I’ve also had energy to create some new DIY projects and recipes to share. Now if I could just get the pictures edited.
I moved to WordPress. There’s still tweaking that needs to be done, but all in all, I like it! I bought a template but can’t figure out how to install it. That’s something I’ll have to do still.
And I added an ad box. I also started offering ad space – and let people know! If you have a product or service you would like to promote, contact me. There are many options available.
