I have been doing a lot of thinking about my blog lately. I think it’s good to clean house once in awhile and reassess things. I recently attended an online conference given by iBloom, titled Learn How to Position Yourself as the Go- To Person to Your Ideal Customer. You can read more about it here. I learned so much from that conference! I decided I needed to do a little bit of re-branding. audience? Who was my target audience?
I have been toying with the idea of changing my focus for a few months. The conference gave me the confidence to proceed. I have always loved crafts and decorating, but also wanted to incorporate my desire to help other moms living with chronic illness. I have been living with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia for the past twenty years. I was diagnosed about ten months after I got married. I also had a baby at the same time. I will be writing more on these topics in the future. It has been quite a challenging journey learning to live with illness while raising a family. I definitely have not done it perfectly. I have shed many tears, prayed many prayers and reached out for help. Reaching out is still something that is hard for me, but I am learning.
The blog will still include simple crafts and recipes. My crafts and recipes will be simple for the most part. It will cater to the mom who doesn’t have a lot of energy or time. It will also include resources for moms dealing with a chronic illness or any other setback. I will still have book reviews too and share a bit of personal stories and encouragement.
More than anything I want this blog to be full of support, encouragement, and creativity. We need each other. Will you join me?
I would love to know in the comments if this is something that would interest you. Can’t wait to hear from you. I will also be sending out a survey shortly.
