January: Life/Blog Updates

Lately, I’ve felt like my blog has become a little impersonal. I know a lot of people like to know the person beyond the art. For this reason, every once in a while I’m going to just sit down and write more of a journal-entry type of post to fill you guys in on life and any upcoming blog changes.

January

The beginning of January was quite busy for me due to an event I had to attend and two birthdays to celebrate. This month was also exciting because I started working on the blog big-time again, which is something I enjoy a lot. Running a blog is way more than just writing content, after all; there’s a ton of stuff that goes on behind the scenes that many people don’t realize, SEO for example. All of these tedious things seem to keep my mind busy and happy.

However, there are a lot of things I have to remember how to do, so getting used to doing everything all over again has been interesting to juggle.

Also, in January I became a student at QC Makeup Academy. This is something I am super excited about. If you guys want more information on that one, like why I decided to pursue this program and what my future plans are…well that’s enough for it’s own blog post, so you’ll just have to wait! 😉

Blog Changes

I have recently decided that the blog will slowly undergo a few changes. First off the color scheme and header/logo will be completely different. This won’t happen right away because I have an image in my head that might end up being hard to get, but I am determined to get what I want. Ultimately, I want the blog to represent my true character a little bit more than what it does right now.

I also desperately need to update my sidebar/profile pictures everywhere. That’s been a work in progress because I’ve been picky. I want to replace it with something with which I’ll be happy for a while, not something that’ll serve as a short-term placeholder.

My posting frequency will also be picking up significantly from what it has been lately. I want to commit myself to Wednesdays and Fridays for sure. Mondays will be thrown in when I am able. I will always be active on social media daily, though I do want to be more consistent on other platforms as well.

I think the last change that I want to mention is that the blog now has an editor! A trusted friend from college has offered to edit the blog for me. I am no longer the only person that has backdoor access!

I have a few other ideas up my sleeve but I think I’m going to keep those a secret for right now.
Let me know what you guys think, and also tell me about your own blogging goals for this year! I read, respond, and check out any blog links left down in the comments. 🙂
