I’ve been blogging for a number of years under a number of different domains. I’ve had different reasons for blogging through the years.
Blogging has changed a lot and so have I.
One thing that has not changed is my need to blog. I don’t know why I have this need, but I trust that God put it in me for some reason and so here I am, blogging more than a dozen years since my first post on my travel blog when I was an au pair in England.
There are a lot of different beliefs when it comes to blogging, most people lately say you need to have a niche topic, like trying to blog only for people who are chameleon owners and have and love tattoos (I don’t think that’s really a thing but who knows, maybe it is!) and so I believed them and tried to be a niche blogger.
Do you know how hard it is for a multi-passionate person to be a niche blogger?
If you’ve been following me for any length of time you would know that minimalism is something I have been slowly working to over the last few years. I’ve noticed that a house filled with clutter overwhelms me, I can’t focus on anything else when my house is in a disarray.
Having less stuff in my house helps me be able to breathe deeper, relax more fully and be able to enjoy my family more. I’ve even noticed it being helpful with my children, who don’t realize it yet but also get overwhelmed by the burden of too much.
Last week I shared a flip through of my current art journal (so far). I’ve done a page almost every day in February and today I wanted to show you the video process of one of my favorite pages in that journal!
I’ve been consistently working in this art journal lately. It only takes 10-15 minutes per page and I’ve been loving how the pages are turning out. I love the minimalism, I love the cohesiveness, I love the quotes, I love it all!
