Hey there! It's been quite a while, eh? I've been totally consumed with my new city, my new apartment, my new job ... everything is going super swell except I have no time to post on my blogs, let alone time to visit my favourite blogs. Which really makes me sad. And I wanted to talk to you, my readers, about that a bit...
Here's the deal. My new job actually involves me becoming the co-author of yet another blog in the home design field. My fellow bloggers will understand my excitement about this. Getting paid to blog, it's the bloggy-dream, right? So what is there to discuss then, you ask? Well, I just don't think I can manage three blogs in a day and still have the time to do other necessary things like eat, sleep, exercise and spend quality time with my family and friends.
I was optimistic that as I adjusted to all this newness, things would go back to normal. But a month has passed and I'm still struggling to manage it all. To be honest, I've failed. And I just don't see a solution other than re-organizing my blogging situation.
The work blog, which I am so excited to share all the details about as we get closer to launching, stays. But what about my two other blogs? What to do with HvH Interiors and The Design Chef? My friends, I just cannot imagine letting go of either of them, but I fear I have no other choice. What's a blogger to do, when they have too many blogs? I am flirting with the idea of combining them somehow... but it's difficult because they are so different. HvH Interiors has become a place to collect and share home design inspiration, a place where I've connected with so many lovely people and where I get to offer my personal perspective. The Design Chef is quite impersonal in contrast, but it's an idea I feel is quite unique, one that I thought up all by myself and that I am so proud of. It's a project that means a lot to me. It also offers some home design inspiration, but in an indirect, less traditional manner. Plus, I just started it and I would be sad to let it go without having the chance to see it's potential.
So far, I am leaning toward adding a section to The Design Chef, where I can blog more traditionally and more personally about home design. But I'm just not sure. What do you all think? Do you agree or disagree with that idea? Do you have any suggestions on how I could merge them? Or any other ideas or suggestions altogether? I would love to hear your thoughts, it would be so helpful.
I just realised how many question marks there are in this post! Well, since the title field is sill blank, I think I will title it "My Blogging Question Mark", lol.
How are you all doing? Any question marks of your own you'd like to throw out there? You are very welcome to share them here ... come on now, it would make me feel so much better ;)
