Fix-It Friday: Major Fixin'

What am I fixing this week?
• I finally got my button up earlier this week! I'm using one of the commissioned sketches from WobiSobi. It turns out that the dimensions were funky so I had to fix again. It's a functioning button now! Really, you should grab it, put it on your blog, and test it :D

• I keep forgetting to tag my outfit posts. Oh well, I wore the same things for 30 days so you probably figured out everything :D

• Yesterday I introduced my first blog giveaway and I tried to make sure I included everything. One thing I fixed this morning is adding that this contest is open to all readers. So, check out yesterday's post and enter! (All entries must be made in the original contest post for the sake of centralizing all entries)

• My MAJOR fix this week? I've decided to slow down my posts. I had set a goal for myself to do daily posts for my first year of blogging. Over the months, I've hemmed and hawed about slowing down but each time I convinced myself that I could keep it up. I know I can, but at the expense of interesting content. I'm not saying that I offer fantastically brilliant posts, but I want to write more. I don't want to post something quickly just for the sake of having a post for the day. If I still don't have a post at 11:30pm after a long day of this and that, I don't want to stress about writing something quickly. I don't want to look up one day and discover my children have left for college and I was busy blogging away! More power to you moms who work full-time and post daily. I tried and did it for about six months, but I'm no Superwoman. (I'd rather be Wonder Woman anyway)
(I will have a post tomorrow since I have a Saturday feature)

Don't forget to enter my TinyGoatStudios giveaway!

  1. I understand exactly what you mean about having your children gone before you know it and not rushing post. I discovered that not long ago when I went to bed at 8:30 after a long day away from home. And I thought A post will have to wait I am Tired. Plus you work a full time job. so hard to be a working mother..

  4. I just saw that you went to SAM yesterday... I was there yesterday too! My friend and I went to lunch at ART (in the Four Seasons) right across the street, and I wanted to take my pictures outside the SAM, but it started raining. And I haven't put up my post from yesterday yet. I'm totally slacking, posting everyday for the 30x30 was HARD.

    Anyway, have you been getting my emails about the meet-up? Let me know! If you're not interested/don't have time, it's fine, too. Just let me know so I don't keep bombarding you with emails :)

  6. Everyday posts is sooo hard. I've been wondering how you find the time. I had no idea blogging would take up so much of my time!
