Hey daydreamers! First off, I’m so sorry that I wasn’t able to get a “real” post up this week. Today was my little sister’s birthday (yay!) so I couldn’t get together a post, and I never got around to it on Saturday or Sunday. I’m so sorry, and I’m going to try to get lots of posts scheduled!
I thought that it would be super fun to do a “Reacting to Your Assumptions About Me” post next week! If you’re not sure how it works, Mary recently did one of these posts and hers is so fun to read! Hannah from The Striped Plaid also did a post like this last year. Basically, you’ll tell me in the comments below what your assumptions about me are – things that you think are true about me but you don’t actually have proof of. Think, “You live in the United States” or “You have three pets and one sibling”. Then I’ll be reacting to them in a future post!
I had an idea to do a mini-photoshoot to go along with the post, but I can’t decide which one! I created a quick poll so y’all can let me know your opinion.
Make sure to leave your assumptions in the comments below! My reaction post should be up this weekend or next weekend. Have a fantastic day, and I’ll see you next weekend with my reactions/answers to them! Bye! 👋
Hey daydreamers! So you might have noticed that lately I’ve been really inconsistent and disorganized with this blog. My posts haven’t been going up on Saturdays like they’re supposed to, and everything just feels slightly off.
So I thought some changes definitely needed to happen around here! Don’t worry – nothing too drastic is happening. I’m not quitting blogging or anything. I just thought a few changes might need to be made to get things working smoothly around here!
Don’t worry, the ballerina theme is going anywhere (I paid like $20 for those graphics, sooo….😂)! I’m thinking about switching my theme over so it feels new and fresh, and also switching up the fonts. The ballerina featured image is getting kind of old, too, so I thought of a cool Polaroid idea to accent the ballerinas! What do you guys think? Is there anything about the design you think I should change?
Lately, I’ve been having trouble getting posts up by Saturdays, because Saturday afternoon I’m like “shoot, I need to make a blog post” and then I start one but I run out of time and energy to finish it. If I don’t finish by Sunday, then it usually never goes up…
So I’m thinking of doing more of a scheduled approach that spreads the workload throughout the week:
Monday: Finalize what the post will be
Tuesday: Make a list of stuff that needs to get done in order to make the post
Wednesday: Write/photograph most of the post
Friday: Finish post and schedule
Saturday: Before it goes up, add finishing touches and images!
Hopefully this will keep me on track a little better!
I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been slacking on reading and replying to emails and comments. I’m so sorry if your email has been waiting in my inbox and I haven’t replied yet! I’m going to try to be a lot better about replying to comments and emails right away.
Also, I’m going to start leaving a comment on every post I read, because I know how happy I get when someone leaves a comment on my blog and I want to spread that to other people! 😄 I haven’t been reading a ton of posts lately and I feel like I’ve been missing out on all of y’alls incredible content in the blogging community, and I’m so sorry about that!
I’m going to start posting more specific content related to the categories on my blog. Right now, my categories are beauty, blogging, books, dance, fashion, journaling and art, lifestyle, music, travel, uncategorized, and writing.
I’m thinking about starting a new series about how young people can start blogs called Blogging Elementary! I started out when I was just nine, and blogging has helped me in so many ways. Most bloggers right now are teenagers (even at twelve I’m pretty young for a lifestyle blogger!), but I think we could encourage young bloggers to start creating and we can expand the blogging community, especially with doll blogging! What do you guys think?
I’m thinking about starting some other series, too – what do you guys think?
Finally…I decided to make a survey to see what YOU guys think! It would mean absolutely a TON to me if you took the time to fill out the survey – it only takes a few minutes. 😀 And make sure to share this post so more people can take the survey and DD can be better than ever!
Thanks for scrolling through this post and checking out the new changes! Please make sure to take the survey and shoot me a comment below on what you think! 😀
