I don't want to spill everything yet because I'm still in the brainstorming stage of planning right now...but I will say that I'm going to be working on a brand new Etsy shop and quite possibly a brand new blog as well.
I've been blogging here at MindiAnna for over a year now, and though I do love my blog and don't want to let go of it (which I'm not doing yet!), I do feel that I'd like to start over fresh. In my previous post I mentioned that I don't feel as though I'm really puting my voice out there when I post and that's absolutely true. When I finish writing a post I usually pull up my blog and read it and look at it and give myself a pat on the back because most of the time I tell myself that the post looks and sounds great and that I hope most readers enjoy it as well. The thing that's missing though, and it's huge, is that it's just not 100% me. I think I've been posting too much of what I think other people will like to see...and not enough of what I actually want to. this is one reason I am considering starting fresh with a brand new blog. I have two choices. 1) I could start a brand new blog from scratch so that everything is fresh and new. I like the idea of starting with a clean slate. or 2) I could pick up here at MindiAnna and just start posting what I would post at the new blog.
There are pros and cons to each choice and I will be going over them all before I make a decision.
As far as the brand new Etsy shop I mentioned...I can't go too much into it right now because I honestly don't have enough info to share right now. I'm in the very early stages of planning EVERYTHING right now so this will be something you will be seeing every step of the way. This is exciting though and I can't wait to share more!
It's getting a bit late so I'll end this post with a to-do list for the week:
- Make a decision on my blog. Start Fresh or Clean Up Where I'm At?
- Use my sewing machine to make something for the first time.
- Search for Inspiration.
- Product Development: Sketch Ideas.
- Plan Blog Posts for November.
