As of right now I post something on this blog 6 days a week, and I try to create all the post on Sunday afternoons and then just go back and tweak them the morning before they post. I also try not to type too much that way readers can quickly view the post and move on. I know as more and more people start blogs I find myself sitting at the computer for a few hours a day looking at what is going on in every ones life and craft rooms.
In order to get something on the blog 6 days a week I feel that I have quickly made something just to have a post, and it hasn't been my best work. Lots of times I made a project because I had to, instead of because I wanted to. I want to put the FUN back in my crafting. I have and I always will love paper crafting, I want to get back to loving it the way I did several years ago. You have all been so nice and commented on everything and I thank you all for your wonderful words! It really does make it worth wild to create something and share!
So, in 2010 I will be cutting back on the number of posts per week. Only posting when I have something wonderful to show you instead of everyday. I also plan to have more templates, step by step projects and maybe even some video tutorial. (I have to get over how silly my voice sounds when recorded)
Best Wishes for all of you in 2010!
