It's bittersweet to say that I think I'm going to stop Tip-tastic Tuesdays. I just feel sad saying it, however I do think it's necessary. Although I post things that aren't related to beauty, I feel that the overall theme of my blog is indeed beauty. My favorite and most frequent posts often include nail posts or things related to beauty and although I do enjoy posting helpful and crafty tutorials or recipes, they aren't necessarily my favorite things to post about. After reading A Beautiful Mess blog's post on "How to Start Your Blog With a Bang", I realized I was sort of doing some of the things they said not to. And while not a single set of rules apply to every blog, I felt that the "theme" rule did apply to my blog and I was just taking on too much. When I opened my blog and looked at it, I didn't see a blog with a specific talent or the recurring word here, theme. It really made me sad to realize that because while I'm sure some of you don't mind that or even enjoy it possibly, many readers probably won't and having so much going on can get confusing. So, I'm going to be making a few changes in that department that I didn't anticipate in the beginning. I want my blog to be mainly beauty focused with a few posts or subjects that aren't as often like crafts and recipes. I'd also like a specific tab for just my opinions or things I'd like to say, sort of like this post, but I can't think of what I would call it! What would be a short label for my opinions, news and personal stories? Rants would be a good one! ha :)
So, I want to know: what do you guys think of these future changes? Do you think it's a good idea or like things the way they are? I'm really struggling with what I should do here! Please, let me know.
p.s. I didn't make this very clear but eliminating the tip-tastic tuesday post wouldn't stop nail posts all together! It simply would mean I would post nails related things sporadically throughout the week not just on one specific day. So, basically that means more nail posts for you! Hopefully...
