I’m baacccckkkk! With a new blog name, new website, new photos, and new direction for the content here.
I used to blog at Soup of the Day, which I started in 2012. It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that I had been writing on SOTD for almost seven years. I was blogging before Instagram was really popular, before bloggers and influencers were really a thing and I remember asking Baltimore in a Box to collaborate and work together on a post before I had seen anyone else do it.
Soup of the Day was my baby and it had morphed into a Baltimore blog as well as a timewarp of my past life and all of the good (and bad) mistakes and lessons I had learned along the way.
Since taking a break from blogging and changing my Instagram handle to reflect where I am in life at the moment, I’ve thought long and hard about what I want this little space to be. I want to share the new journey that I’m on as a newlywed, an an Event Planner trying to pave her way in a new community, as a writer and as a connecter/networker.
One of my favorite things and something I think I am good at, is connecting people. I love nothing more than dreaming up a collaboration between two people or a group of people and making it happen! I want to do more of that in 2019.
I am also changing my mindset for what the PURPOSE of this blog will be. I used to think of my blog as the main source of content. Social media was a supporting channel to what I was producing and cranking out on the blog, but I’ve learned over the last year that people don’t want to WORK to get that same information, they’d rather you hand it to them directly. SO…. my Instagram account will be the primary source of content from me and this blog will serve as additional information. If I write a post on here, I want it to be entertaining, intriguing, and exciting enough that you will CLICK OVER. I don’t have enough followers to access the swipe up option so I’ve gotta lure you all to my little corner of the interwebs with a great deal of effort.
Speaking of effort, if I know my audience isn’t going to really be into a topic, I’m not going to write about it. This new stage of my life is also about being true to myself, my followers, and my time. I’m not going out of my way to post just to post. You’ll be getting content that I feel strongly about in some way or another.
It’s a new year and kinda a new me. Stick around, I’ve got some fun content coming in the next couple of months!
