A little bit of a different post today, guys!

To be totally honest, I hit a wall yesterday with my blog post planning, and I got really frustrated. Sometimes I get all gung-ho, running down a path at 50 miles per hour, and then I stop to second guess myself and think–”Is this even what people want? What if my readers don’t even like this?” 

And to be totally honest, I didn’t start this blog for anyone but myself. But now, it’s grown into this incredible little community that we’ve built together, and it’s not just about me anymore. It’s about both of us. You and me. So I want to work my very hardest to ensure that this site continues to serve you as an inspirational, fun, and uplifting corner of the internet. 

So I figured, maybe I should just ask you what you think? (I mean, what a crazy idea–right?) 

If you would be SO kind (seriously, so kind. I cannot thank you enough) as to fill out this reader survey for me, it would truly mean the world. 




I can’t wait to see what we build together in the coming year!
