I have always wanted to have a website of my own for my blog. It took me a year or more to decide for my own domain name. And it took me 18 months to decide that I am going to have an independent website of my own. Yes, I am finally going to plan my own website for my blog. It is taking lot of research and for a non-technology person like me, it is just taking forever . I know exactly what I want my website to look and what I want in them.
The problem was not that I couldn’t do it but was if I am willing to spend some money on it. As a stay-at-home mom, I feel guilty spending money on frivolous things like website and blogs. I usually buy frivolous things only for my birthday. But then again I need to take it very serious as to make it my priority to update my website. I have doubts about it but I am going to do it, after all if you never try, you’ll never know .
I have also been researching about photography. My blog photos have come a long way from a point and shoot camera to a old DSLR . But I still need to take good pictures so that I can pin them on Pinterest. I have been researching about lightning, setup, etc, etc. It’s been a week since I have decided that I am going to go ahead with these changes and it’s a lot to take it in. Hopefully I can apply all these changes by the end of this month. I have lots of products to review and lot of topics to talk about. My plan is to post at least 3 per week in the initial stage of the website and take it along.
I have kept aside 2 days in a week for my blog in which I will be taking photos and plan the post and hopefully it will attract a lot of people. I do want to make my website successful, not like “millionaire” success but like I am going to buy a “planner” with my own money . I am happy to be a stay-at-home mom but I need a hobby or creative outlet and this blog has been mine for the last 8 years. Yes, It’s been 8 years and I am still doing it. I do love doing it but sometimes I don’t have creative energy.
I have lot of friends who I am going to ask about the topics they like to read and I am going improve on them. There are lot of successful bloggers out there and I know it is going to be a struggle to make it happen but I am going to try my best for the next 2 years. If I fail, then at least I have tried.
So readers, send me some encouragement and confidence because I really need it
