Hey guys! So I have something I want to come right out and talk to you about.
This blog has been a big part of my life for the last almost 7 years. That's a long time in blog years! It's evolved along the way and over the years I've become really happy with this little corner of the internet I've carved out for myself. I also spend a lot of time working on my blog. The writing, the photos, the editing, the posting, DIY's, etc. Recently I have had some opportunities come up that will help me benefit monetarily a little from this blog of mine. I wanted to be up front so you didn't feel sabotaged or anything. Also, you should know it's not going to change much, but in case you're a little apprehensive, here are the facts:
1). I have no desire to turn this into a big huge career or full time job. Really. I've looked into it. It's not for me. I just want to keep on doing what I enjoy doing with a little more emphasis on the arts, while making a little money on the side for something I already put a lot of time and effort into.
2). When (and if) I do a sponsored post, you'll know it. It will still be me writing and no one will tell me what to say or how to say it. I'll only do a sponsored post if I feel comfortable doing so.
3). I am probably going to change my blog address soon and spruce it up a little around here. I was going to do this anyway.
4). I'm hoping to do some contributions on other blogs. Again--this will be more creative stuff that I'm really excited about.
5) There may or may not be ads on the sidebar in the future.
OK so that's about it.
I hope you guys are OK with it all since I really appreciate all your love and support.
