For awhile now I have seen my YouTube subscriber count slowly approach a pretty big milestone. No it isn’t silver/gold/platinum play button worthy, but it a very big accomplishment for me. 50K. Almost exactly 4 years after I started my YouTube journey. So today I decided to do something scary. Completely start over on my blog. I feel like since starting YouTube I have been learning and growing on that platform, and have been loving it, but I haven’t been nourishing my roots. Did you know I started blogging in 2007? It was an old account on a site that I am sure no longer exists. I started documenting my life as a newly married, housewife, who was about to have her first child. It was a way to connect with others going through the same things as me.
I always talk about redesigning my blog, and making it more my style, but it never happens. Why? Because it scared me! I am not a HTML pro, or know the first thing about widgets, templates, and web design. I am going to start slow and small, but I am committed to trying to learn and do it myself.
What about my old content on Happily A Housewife Blog? I am not completely sure. I really want this to be a fresh start, so I may go back and transfer some posts over (if that’s even possible) but I am sort of looking at that as my blog from my 20s and this is a fresh new start not only for 50K but also for documenting my 30s.
What is different here than on YouTube? Not much actually. It will just be a different format with a lot of the same information. An easier way to access links, save things you like to Pinterest, and see images of projects/products I am talking about. Blog posts for the week will always be linked in my weekly vlog, as well as in the video it corresponds with. I barely follow blogs anymore, so I am not sure of how you follow along other than clicking a link someone provides anyway … lol.
If you have any other questions please let me know! I am excited and nervous to start this new project, but also excited to start a new chapter!
