I’ve been thinking about this whole blogging thing a lot lately and one thing that sticks out in my mind is that most of the guidance out there on how to have a successful blog is to focus on and master one topic then write about it and share it with the world. For me, that one topic has always been interior design, decorating, home projects and remodels, but over the years, I haven't felt truly inspired on a weekly basis to produce a blog post on this topic. I'm sure this is pretty obvious with the fact that I go weeks at a time between blog posts. I have a true love for design and decorating, I would even go as far as to call it a passion, but when it comes to having material to post consistently on this topic it has become difficult for me. I feel like I have a lot of things to say and a lot of things I want to share with others, but I don’t always have a brand new project to post pictures of or a new room decorated. A lot goes into making a space look pretty and to be honest I don’t always have the time, energy, or for that matter, money to create blog worthy posts on this topic. With a lack of projects to post, I get a little down on myself which snowballs into a lack of inspiration and a lack of posts.
I want to talk more about life and how I want to live it. Endless inspiration instead of forcing a post. I want the one thing I master to be living a beautiful life, or at least what a beautiful life means to me. This may mean that I only have five readers, but I’m okay with that. I want to cultivate a more authentic way of writing and sharing. So I asked myself, "What do I love?" I'm a true homebody, so of course anything to do with home and entertaining, but I also have a love for travel, fashion and even healthy living. This is a moment in time when I’ve decided to shift my focus a bit and write about what I love and what I’m inspired by. I know this may not interest many of you, but I’m going to follow my heart on this one. At this point I'll still continue to share home projects when I have one to share, but in between those posts I'll be sharing whatever my heart tells me to in that moment.
This may mean that over time, Revival House may morph into something else entirely, but right now I'm just not sure what that something else might be. I'm human and that means that I change my mind sometimes, some might say too much. I may even be considered a little crazy or weird by some. But in reality, I'm just a girl who has learned to never give up on her dreams - no matter how far-fetched they may seem. I hope you'll continue to follow along while I chase them.
