On consistency and change

I have been reading several posts about blogging techniques and I felt very connected to this article about consistency in blogging. These past months, it has been a bit difficult for me to keep posting on A Heart and Soul Story on a very regular basis. My work schedule has kept me quite busy and I sometimes felt and still feel overwhelmed by all the tasks that need to be done. I try to focus on blogging as it is something I really enjoy doing, but it seems to get cut more and more often.


I wanted to share this post by Elembee as I really found myself in this article. I do want to keep blogging, but I want to stop putting pressure on myself. I will try at least.
One major point that I want to focus on is to plan more and schedule posts in advance. It's funny that all my life is pretty planned out, but the blog doesn't get a ToDo list or a calendar. This has to change :)

With this in mind, I have done a some planning. What you can expect in the upcoming weeks and months:
- one to two outfit posts a week
- a DIY post on home projects here and there
- maybe some food posts on favorite recipes 
- the shoe of the week project is going to make its' return in a new way


I also want to work on new ideas and, even though photos are my main priority on the blog, I would like to talk about some more serious topics once in a while. I hope you stay with me through this process. We all grow up, change our priorities and re-access our schedules and so will this blog now that it is coming of age!

PS: The logo and my (not so new anymore) blogheader were made by the before mentioned Elembee and I just adore her design. Totally my kind of style and the colors are wonderful. What do you think?

I know how overwhelming blogging can be, just enjoy what you do and you'll see a huge difference! Making drafts for future posts when I was inspired by something helped me a lot! And thank you Anja for your sweet words about my drawings it realy means a lot to me!!!
