Can you believe that we are already in the third full week of January?  We’ve almost gone through the first month of 2016.  It boggles my mind with how fast time flies.  I haven’t done anything too exciting except start working on bigger things.

This year, I want to take my blog to the next level.  I sent out my first newsletter of all time and I’ve started to build a bigger awareness of my Wednesday linkups via email.  Make sure if you want to see what’s going on in the world of Jersey Girl, Texan Heart, or if anything is in the works (early access type stuff) subscribe to my email list.  I want this year to be THE year for my blog.  I want to grow but I also want to interact with y’all more.  I wanted to start writing more.  Everyone keeps telling me that when I write they think it’s almost like an escape for me.  It’s a place where I get all of my thoughts onto paper (so to speak).  I love writing more than speaking because I have this problem of thinking too fast for my fingers to type or in person, thinking too fast for my mouth to speak and sometimes what I’m thinking doesn’t come out right.  At least with writing I can get all of my thoughts down and go back and re-read everything I wrote.  That way if I’m trying to explain something and it’s not coming out right I can revise it.  Hey, maybe one day I might even write a book.  That would be the day.

This year I want to write more content on my blog, I will still be bringing you the usual outfit posts and nail art, etc. but I want to write.  Over the past few months I’ve almost neglected my writing and my blog a bit due to the holidays.  At one point my blog was starting to feel like a chore, and honestly this is my happy place.  My blog is my baby and when it starts feeling like a chore or that I HAVE to work on it I just don’t even bother.  With that being said, I’ve been feeling more motivated to take my blog to the next level.  I’m done feeling stressed out about my blog.  I started this as a fun hobby to keep my creative juices flowing since I work in the corporate world, and I needed to sit down and get back to my roots (writing a business plan) to truly realize that my blog hasn’t grown because I haven’t put enough effort into it.  I’ve been so caught up in being stressed out about everything around me, that the one thing I’m proud of has been neglected the most.  So everyone, I hope you stick around for a more improved version of my blog!
