Alright, I finally did it! I started a blog. Now... What to write about. And will anyone read it? Will it be any good? What should my first post be about? How often should I post? So many questions, I'll guess we'll have to see how it all turns out.
I was inspired to start a blog by a couple of friends of mine. Through the wonders of the internet, I have been able to learn so many things - how to bake a million types of cupcakes, how to organize my house, my clothes, my kids, my life, how to cook a month's worth of meals in a single day (or two). And with each new endeavour people would ask me how I did it, what recipe I used and what tools I used to figure things out. Enter this lovely blog.
Now I can share my favorite recipes, my tips and tricks for faking a clean house, and links to other awesome web resources that I use to help me with all of these things.
The biggest change I've been attempting to make in our family/house is organization! It's so hard - I think I'm a closet hoarder. Seriously, at one point I had three kettles. Who needs three kettles? There are some things I still hoard (craft supplies, baking pans and ingredients) but I'm trying to me much better.
Through the last six months or so I followed orgjunkie.com and her 52 weeks to home organization (http://orgjunkie.com/52-weeks). What a great challenge! I managed to do about 2 challenges per week to bring my home into a form of organized chaos. Now she's doing a 29 Day Organizational Challenge. And in order to be eligible to win a prize (and who doesn't want to win a prize??) you have to have a blog and link up your progress. So, long story short, here we are, blog started - organization not started yet. I'll write about that "progress" next time.
So - the plan is to take the craziness that is the storage/closet/scrapbook room in our upstairs guest/computer/toy/exercise room and make it a more usable, cohesive, organized space. In a month. And it's crazy in there. I'm kind of scared. Oh well, a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step, right? One foot in front of the other, right? Here. We. Go.
