I Need Your Opinion……

Beware this post does not include home décor, thrifty finds, crafty ideas, or delicious healthy recipes. I did however throw in a few pictures just to keep things colorful! You’re welcome ;o)

I have a few things on my mind and I’m having a hard time deciding what I want to do. What does any good blogger do when they can’t make up their mind? They turn to their awesome readers……that’s you and yes you’re ALL awesome even the lurkers! So, what do you think……….do you mind helping with my little dilemma? By little I really do mean little; no one’s hurt or dying, I’m not losing my home and still have a working car so it’s all good! I am on the other hand at a crossroad.

Have you noticed my usual crafty post have been minimal over the last few months? They’re not going away and I still and always will have the creative bug. If for some reason it ever goes away I’m going to hunt one of you lovely creative ladies down and give ya a BIG smooch so I can get it back! I have however been pulled towards giving this little blog a more personal touch.

This year is going to be exciting as we begin to plan our low stress, low budget, destination wedding. This is huge for us! We’ve been engaged for 5 years together for almost 10! I would love to share our journey to the alter with you. I’ve thought about doing a few throw back post filled with funny old pictures and sharing our love story (G rated of course). I’m not saying that I ONLY want to blog about my relationship but also include fun events or outings I attend. Maybe a post about something that’s been on my mind (like this one). Perhaps a post that makes YOU think about something.

I guess my question is, do you even care? When I started this blog I planned to write about all things domestic which is what I’ve mainly done and loved every second of it. Here we are 164 post later and I’m looking at Domestic Princess in Training through new glasses…...or shall we say an updated prescription. I still want to post about my usual topics (thrifting, decorating, crafting, baking, and cooking) they make me happy but would like to throw in a few personal post every now and then.

Here’s where you come in:
What do you think? Would you be interested in a few new topics thrown in the mix or would you rather I stick mainly to domestic themed post? I’ve even thought about starting a new blog for all the other stuff but the thought of managing 2 blogs does not sound very appealing to me. I meant what I said above. I really want your honest opinion! Let me know in your comment below and/or take a few seconds to let me know by voting. I’ve included a poll at the top of my side bar. The poll is completely anonymous so you can be honest!

Thanks for taking the time to read though this and for letting
me know what you think! :o)

Ps….I’m having a girls day today with my best bud. She's kiddo free for the day and we have BIG plans to hit several thrift stores!!!! I’m super excited and yes…….I’ll be taking my camera along!

  1. I think you should blog about whatever you want to - it's your blog! :) I think it's fun to read about other peoples' lives so you can learn more about them and "get to know" them a little better. I guess if more personal posts don't interest some of your readers they could easily skip over those posts and tune into the more crafty/domestic posts. But like I said, do whatever would make you happiest!

  4. Hey kiddo, I am fairly new to your blog. I love it. I am interested in all things domestic, as well as photography. My daughter is getting REALLY good at her photog skills. Check out her blog, it is on my blogroll as Life in Hass House. Anyway, I hear what you are saying, and I would be happy to keep on visiting no matter which way you go, but why not just incorporate your journey to the alter into this blog as it is, and maybe designate one day a week to a "wedding" blog post. Like Wednesday Wedding updates...or something like that. I would miss your other posts if you did away with them. That's just me...one voice. Either way...love your blog.

  5. I really enjoy your blog but I would love for you to post about your upcoming wedding & fun stuff going on in your life. Those are the blogs I like the most, just regular life. I guess that's why I write mine like I do. Either way I'll be a reader!

  7. I enjoy reading all sorts of things. I look forward to reading about planing your wedding and just life in general.

    My frugal blog has become not so frugal. Write when you feel inspired regardless of the topic.

  8. You should blog about whatever is on your mind. No need to start a new blog, especially when you are going to be busy planning a wedding. I look forward to following your journey!

    Have a great weekend! La

  9. tried to vote but dont think it worked...so here is vote...of course we (or at least I as a reader) would LOVE to hear personal tidbits..I dont think you can not include personal stories...and it makes readers feel that they know you better and can relate more! Really..weddings and love stories..I mean who doesnt like those :)

  10. Hey Kendra! Some wedding and relationship news would be great! Plus you could incorporate wedding themed crafts into your thrifting, etc as you seek to keep within your budget :o)

  12. go with what you feel like writing about. also, weddings are very popular, sounds silly saying it like this, but, we all love weddings and love to hear about them! it would be fun to take the ride along with you if you wish to share!

  13. I would be totally BUMMED if you didn't share your personal stories with me!!! I can't wait to read all about it!!

  14. It would be wonderful for you to add some additional things to your blog. I truly enjoy everything that you share.

  15. I LOVE creatively inspiring blogs because they inspire me creatively. :) At the same time, I'm drawn to the blogs who are personal as well. Seeing amazing ideas and trying new recipes is one thing, knowing that it's totally a real person with a real life behind all that makes me stick that feed in bloglines so I don't miss a post. :) So my personal opinion is GO FOR IT, GIRL.

  16. I think it sounds as if you creative side is leaning that way for now, so you should go with it. If you limit yourself and only focus on what you *think* you should write about, you'll get bored. In the end, it is YOUR blog and you should focus on what you enjoy. :)
