This is one of those posts that is a little of this and a little of that...
just some small things to share with you.
Blogging has changed so much from when I first started almost 6 years ago.(You hear that every day, but it's really true) It used to be that you could confidently share a pretty photo or vignette, how you made a small change on your kitchen counter, or a new "whatever", without feeling like you were supposed to be entertaining everyone. We were excited to show our latest flea market and garage sale finds without feeling "less than". I still love those kind of posts, because honestly, it's those kind of "everyday life" posts that let us in on the real person that's blogging. It really intimidates me that blog posts now are expected to be some kind of major "production", elaborate DIY, or fabulous room reveal. And that if they aren't, then what you may post might be considered as irrelevant, blah, or boring.
(found my sweet little fountain last week)
Don't get me wrong...
I totally love a great DIY, Room Reveal etc.
but I have to tell you...
my life is just not that darn exciting,
or productive, for that matter.
...and I really don't need or want it to be.
I just want to show you where I put my little French Girl fountain,
and that I bought some Hydrangeas...
one pink, and one blue.
Now I just need to pick the right place to have hubby plant them.
and that for right now they are in my black goat cart
that I finally found,
and sitting on the front porch.
they bloom all summer long
and then have the most amazing colors come Fall.
I can't wait to get them planted.
Last year I really missed having Hydrangeas
and Peonies, and Roses, and Black-Eyed Susans...
Hydrangeas are my go-to flower.
They're beautiful in any season.
and that my "Little Miss Muffet" is sitting on her tuffet...
taking a bath.
sorry for the cord in the pic.
I'm keeping it real today.
Try as I might, I just can't get "into" Facebook or Instagram.
I know Instagram has real possibilities,
and it seems like so many bloggers are heading that direction
because there's less "pressure".
Even there, many blogger photos look "professional",
and that my little phone pics look silly in comparison.
Let's not miss out on sharing the sweet small things
of everyday life on our blogs.
Let's not let blogging turn into a "Professional" sport.
Here's to feeling that as people and as bloggers,
we are "relevant"
...no matter what.
