fresh start~ resolution one

I know the blogosphere is going to be buzzing this week with everyone's New Year's resolutions and I am totally jumping on that band wagon. I started working on my resolutions as soon as I returned home from Lavish in Atlanta. My head was full of ideas for my blog, business, etc. and I had to get them all down. In the weeks after, I have created some more resolutions for my personal life. I am going to share all of these resolutions here this week.

I am going to start with my blog. I could have never imagined how much I would love having this outlet and actually having people read and comment and interact with me. I have found a little family, full of people who share the same interests and inspirations. I love this family and it deserves more of my time. I feel like in the last month, I haven't been giving it my all in blogging. The holidays are mostly to blame, with everything going on, I had no time to devote here.

I have many goals for my blog for 2011.  One of them being to make my blog more of an extension of my professional life, I am an interior designer, not just a person with a passion for beautiful interiors, and I feel like I could offer so much more to readers if I showed more of that side. I have come up with many post ideas that will help me convey that side of myself.  Another goal for myself is to interact a little more. When I first discovered blogging, I would comment like crazy and would always reply back to all the commenters on my blog. I need to get back to that! I really do love everything I see and I appreciate every comment...I just need to start telling ya'll that again! I would also love to do more guest posts for other bloggers as well as feature other bloggers on my site.  I love this community and I want to feature that more.

A new year means fresh start so also be on the lookout for a new, updated layout soon!

Tomorrow, I will talk about my goals for the new year in my professional life...
