Choosing Not to be a "Pinterest-Perfect" Blogger

Choosing Not to be a "Pinterest-Perfect" Blogger

Hello my dears,

I haven't the faintest idea on what to write about today. I know I want to write something, but my mind is just a blank!

I could talk about the glorious smell of the rain sprinkling down outside. Or plopping on the floor in front of our big window in the foyer attempting to capture a picture of the elusive male cardinal that frequents our bird feeder. Or perhaps I could tell you how much I am enjoying working away on my shawl test knit. But that all seems so inconsequential.

 We get lots of fat little juncos at our feeder. They are seriously adorable!

It feels as if I'm at a crossroads with nearly everything in my life: my business, the blog, my wardrobe, my moods, etc. I imagine starting a new job has been more stressful to me than I thought. I am still trying to adjust to this new schedule. Juggling everything I need to do hasn't been easy. It is no secret that I am pitiful at time management and scheduling which hasn't helped.

I've decided I want to be more honest on the blog. It is far too easy to slip into the bad habit of only presenting a Pinterest perfect life on here. I don't want to give unrealistic expectations to anyone. I know all too well what it is like to compare myself with other bloggers, knitters, seamstresses, yarn dyers, and independent business owners. And it is hard to never catch a glimpse of what it going on behind the scenes.

Which is why I'll be writing more personal and honest blog posts. Maybe once every week or two I'll be checking in to let you know how I am going on and if there are any tips or tricks I have learned.

I hope you don't mind! If you have any suggestions or resources for time managing or scheduling please let me know in the comments below or send me a message.

~Emily
