First off, Welcome to Dose of Happy (DOH)! Secondly, yes, I am completely crazy. As if the move weren’t enough right now, right?! There are a lot of new beginnings in my life right now, and I’m happy that DOH is a part of it. Here’s a little story on why I am doing this….
Fresh Nest has been so good to both me and Erin. I can only explain my reasons for wanting to move on…. just keep that in mind while you are reading this. I love Erin and we will always be friends – so no worries, we are parting on a good note.
I love blogging. It has brought me where I am today. And I mean that. I have the part time job mainly because of my activity and know-hows of the web due to my blogging. I consult with companies because of my background in blogging. It truly has given me so much.
Recently blogging became somewhat of a chore. I felt a little pigeon-holed in the world of design, and I felt like I was doing it just to earn new advertisers or what not. I felt like I was stressing over posts and answering emails. And for what, really? Just so I could make a buck here and there? As well as Fresh Nest did with statistics and all, it was SO much work! (For very little pay). And let’s be honest. I started the site to make a little dough. I felt like blogging had become the next Pampered Chef where only a few top bloggers make money, and the rest of us were working trying to catch up with the big dogs. It felt icky, and I didn’t like it.
So here I am. A fresh new site. Just for me. I honestly don’t care if I make a dime on the site. This is just for me to document what makes me happy and what I love about life. In return, I hope it makes other people happy too.
I know the road of life can be really demanding and hard sometimes so I hope this is a space of sunshine for both you and me.
More than likely, my posts will be on fashion, food, design, and life in general. I plan to post daily so feel free to subscribe in your reader. I have imported all my Fresh Nest posts so you might see some branding that has transferred over.
Thanks for following me along on this new journey!
