What’s Going On Around Here?

I hate to state the completely obvious, but you may have noticed that things have been slow down around for the past — ummm — year or so. I promise that I’m not giving up on blogging. It’s just that after blogging about green decorating for so long, in the way that I’ve been blogging, I’ve sort of run out of new products to talk about. OK…that’s not quite true. There are still products to blog about, but not enough to warrant the kind of frequency with which I posted in the first few years of Green Your Decor.

This has led to an evolution of sorts. The change isn’t complete at all, but instead of focusing so much on green products, I plan to do more posting about projects I’m actually doing. Like making over my daughter’s room (and all the tiny details I’m procrastinating about 🙂 That’s not to say I won’t blog about cool green products. I absolutely will, when I find some worth blogging about. But you can expect to see a lot more of ME, showing you what I’m doing at home, talking about some of the green habit I’m sadly not as adamant about these days, projects I’m tackling, etc.

My point is that the green will live on, albeit in a slightly different form. I found myself with a little blogger burnout, and I had to figure out a way to overcome that. I will still blog about all things green and beautiful for your home, but hopefully, I’ll be blogging equally about practical uses for those things I talk about, as well as DIY projects you can all attempt, too. After all, what’s greener than doing it yourself, right? I don’t want to blog just for blogging’s sake, or to meet some imaginary quota I made up in my head. I want to offer more quality content that you can apply to your own lives.

There’s also the little matter that I’ve been up to my eyeballs in graphic design projects, so those have taken up a huge chunk of my time as well. Suffice it to say I’ve been a busy lady. And I’ve been tired. 🙂

So forgive me if posts are fewer and further between. I still love all things eco-friendly, and I still love blogging. I may do a little less of it, but I’m not going anywhere, in case you were wondering 🙂

P.S. And for those of you who have asked about my daughter, she is doing exceptionally well. She is still in remission and positively thriving. She’s in first grade this year, and we’re super proud that she’s been advanced to a second grade reading level. She’s still in treatment, and will be for a while, but she’s really doing well. We couldn’t ask for a better outcome from a scary situation.

    Few things more “green” than taking care of one’s self, and reveling in the blessings of your loved ones being safe and happy. I’ve learned of some GREAT products from you. Feel free to do some spa-type blogs while you recharge … maybe try some different candles, soaps, body scrubs … even dechlorinating products, and give your opinions!

    Loved learning about the cloud mattress – WOW.

    Blessings to You and Yours,

    One of the many things I admire about you is your ability to be honest with yourself and your readers. Anyone can throw up a blog and sell stuff. But to put yourself into it (which is what readers really like) and to recognize when you’re needing a break or to go in another direction, speaks to each of your readers on a personal level. Of COURSE you need to change direction and I for one will be hanging on every word, just as before! I don’t know if you’ve read any of our blog with Corey’s adventures in remodeling green, but she’s doing a lot of the same thing. I’m just glad you are busy and that you will still be sharing your green efforts with us. Have FUN!

    I completely understand, though I have missed your updates, no matter what they’re about! 🙂

    I’m glad to hear your daughter is doing so well. I’ve been thinking and wondering about her.

    Oh my gosh, this transformation is so cool. I like the last photo with the little girl on the bed- it’s straight out of a magazine. Very adorable 🙂
