Sherry’s Ramblings for the Week
DEAR BLOG READERS…
So I have been thinking. I want to be sure that I am doing stuff that’s interesting enough for everyone, but not to burn myself out.
As you may or may not have known, I used to have a lot of blogs. About 3. Then I got rid of one, and had two major blogs that were kind of popular (think triple the size of this one).
I burned out.
Essentially, I ran out of time to blog and felt a lot of pressure (internal of course) to do more and better, and go professional, write a book (got 2 reach-outs for a book), start a TV show (got a call from two producers to do a show).. and I just shied away.
I am not into publicity or fame, and I don’t want to be famous or recognized at all, anywhere, but I do want to do the best I can with the limits I have placed on myself to stay sane: Anonymity.
I don’t want to burn out again. I want to keep this site but keep my life.
However, I do want to give readers what they want, and that’s why I’m asking for your help now.
Due to popular requests, I am now knocking around these ideas:
Recipes. I have been asked at least 5 times for different recipes. I have been meaning to do this but I have yet to get around to it.
I am not sure if I will be able to do this, but if I did it, what kind of recipes would you want? Vegetarian? Vegan? General easy stuff?
SECOND: OUTFITS + BUDGET
I am definitely able to maybe start a Friday Feature where I re-post my outfits from Instagram & making short notes / talking about it and maybe putting prices to what it all cost.
Kind of like in this post here but less fancy, something more like this:
- Maxi dress: [Thrifted] Old Navy – $10
- Necklace: [Retail] Independent designer – $30
Any interest in something like this?
THIRD: WHAT ELSE?
Any other requests or ideas? I will review and go through all of them and see what I can do with the lowest impact to my workload and maximum benefit to all!
Let me know. I’d really appreciate it.
Also, let me know the bad stuff too. I’m open to helpful criticism.
AMAZON CAME UP WITH ITS OWN ETSY VERSION
Look!! Finally. You can shop Handmade items…
I’m going to give it a whirl and let you know.
MASHA AND THE BEAR VIDEOS
These are meant for children, but my goodness they’re just as funny for adults. I’m watching them until Baby Bun is old enough to appreciate the videos, and we can watch them together.
They are HILARIOUS and so well done.
There’s quite a lot of them, but not all 51 episodes, I could only find 23 episodes translated into English.
Fantastic set of videos for everyone to watch. The little girl reminds me of a few toddlers I know, but thankfully not Baby Bun (he’s quiet and more of an onlooker who loves to help).
This other one: Little Cousin is my other favourite video. I watched it the other day and laughed.
