So I'm making a few little changes around here on the blog and one of them is in regards to giveaways. While I absolutely love sharing new businesses and products with you all, I feel like my blog content has had too many giveaways over the last several months. Promoting and growing small businesses is very important to me, as I am a small business owner myself, but I'm going to start doing things a little differently.
The main reason I started this blog was to share my love for creating and hopefully inspire you all to want to create in your everyday life. I want to make sure I keep the content here on the blog focused in that direction. I try really hard to post projects and ideas that you hopefully all enjoy and keep the majority of posts written by me (although my mom, Grandma Jane, will be 'guest posting' coming up). I never in a million years thought I would make any money from blogging. While I feel incredibly blessed to now be able to generate some income from blogging, I would be blogging regardless.
With that being said, instead of having several giveaways a week, I am now going to be hosting one giant giveaway day per month. My sponsors all have the opportunity to participate in this day and I am also opening the day up to other small businesses as well. I got this idea from my friend Jessica (from Happy Together) and she assures me it is working out great.
I hope you don't mind this change. If you love giveaways, then you'll want to mark your calendar for the first day of each month as that will be the BIG giveaway day. I will still do personal giveaways (from me) and the occasional book and fabric giveaway, but these will be very selective.
I'm really excited about the change and it will free up some days in my blogging schedule for me to post more about starting a small business, recipes, projects, crafts, ect........
So, what do you think? Sound ok?
