Today I am publicly sharing my happiness project. Between reading The Happiness Project and linking up every Thursday I knew I wanted to take it one step further. Since everyone’s happiness project is different, my happiness project is going to be aimed toward this blog! Blogging brings me so much joy, so why not?! After a lot of planning I came up with my 12 resolutions I am so thrilled to share them with you:
October: Community: reaching out locally + online
November: Refocus / branding / redesign
December: Ch- ch – changes! bedsidesign launches as a self-hosted blog with paid sponsorships! Wooohoo! + Celebrate 1 year of blogging
January: Focus on social media outlets
February: Love for brands, bloggers, all around L-O-V-E
March: Take risks
April: Add a new staging/styling series
May: Work on a media kit
June: Look for new collaborations with brands/guest posting opportunities
July: Celebrate the progress – reader survey time!
August: Link-up with one of the blogs on my “list” of blogs that I love
September: Learn: sign up for a blog conference/class
October: Rinse, re-evaluate, repeat?
and my 12 commandments…
I’m extremely excited for the next few months because a lot of changes are in the works. When I started this blog I was unsure about ads, and the self-hosted world. Now I am ready take that big leap. Thankfully I found the best route for bedsidesign and will be implementing those changes soon! What does that means for you bedsidesigners? Well for starters I won’t be limited like I am now with the templates that I have access to. I will have way more freedom to make this blog really me, and hopefully that makes it a better viewing experience. WordPress.com users: I will be reminding you that starting in December you will need to visit bedsidesign.com instead of viewing through the WordPress.com reader. I hope you will follow me on there! More changes too but I’d like to keep some as a surprise!
Thanks for following me on this journey. I hope to share what I learn along the way. If you are a blogger feel free to join the link-up too! The more the merrier!
