Blogging Schedule Change (to every other day) :O)

I'll be blogging every other day instead of daily.
(I'll probably sneak extra posts in there though!) ;O)

I've been feelin' a little burnt out health-wise for a while & been racking my brain about whether or not to change my blogging schedule. I've finally come to a conclusion: less is more. What I mean is that I can do more if I blog less, LOL. ;O)

Why? I've been falling behind in blurfin' (droolin' over & commenting on blog buddy's blogs)...I get a fair amount of requests for custom templates and I'm slipping behind in that area too...I've been feeling like I'm in a flower-card makin' rut...So, I'm making time to create more templates 'n' techniques & to try and get more funky with my style. (Plus, I just may write that book or start video tutorials, heehee) :O)

What you can expect around here for the next couple of months:

Techniques & Tutorials:

I'm lookin' forward to having more time to experiment with crazy stuff & hopefully find some nifty results to share with you. :O)

Paper Garden Projects Designs:

I've never been so excited about stamping since I got my hands on Paper Garden Projects stuff. I just ordered a whole whack of stamps & goodies and I'm super excited that Cathy has asked me to make some goodies with the new kits for Christmas & the Holidays! (Wait until you see how CUTE they are!) :O)

More Big ol' Link Lists:

I've been workin' on some good ones with lots of templates & tutorials.

Maybe some Scrapbookin' (!?!):

I am a BIG chicken when it comes to scrapbooking, but I have been drooling over some peoples gorgeous creations lately. I am really wanting to get into it, so you might see a bit of that.

So I'll see you every other day & I hope that you still be here. :O)

Stampin' Hugs,

P.S. That photo up top is a real grape that my aunt Kat found staring at her while we were on vacation, ROFL!

I for one will look forward to each and every post you make. I understand the need for more time! Thanks for everything you share and spending so much time on all of us - I know I appreciate it!

Deb Neerman said...

Well, I sure hope she didn't eat that grape; it'd bring in a small fortune on eBay! Trust me, I'm a trained professional ...

I hear ya Mel-a-Licious ... this daily bloggin' is becoming more and more of a chore. I've been thinkin' of doing the exact same thang.

I'll miss your daily posts but we can still be silly together via email! And every other day is a nice workable schedule ... one I jess might adopt fer my own self!

No matter how often you do or don't blog, you're still huggable, wonderful Mel-a-Licious to me!!

Now rest and kick back with some of that down time, huh?!?


Maria said...

Hey Mel!! I have the same issue with my blogs. . .I make all these quicky cards just so I can post something on a daily basis. A lot of times, I don't like what I end up making.

Quite honestly, I don't know how else you can improve your blog and projects. . .they're over the top already. You have the most extensive blog with all the details, tutorials and awesome projects. But. . .considering it's you, I'm sure there's a lot more creative stuff churning in your head. I can't wait to see all your new stuff!!


Risa said...

You are soooo funny Mel!! However I have to admit that the grape does look like its staring though! LOL
I can totally relate to your new blogging schedule. Blogging everyday can be a bit hectic. I'm looking forward to your tutorials and projects! Take care and have a great day Mel:)

Tiff said...

Now, that's a plan!!!! Good luck with ALL your endeavors! I would definitely buy your book!

I will certainly miss seeing your stuff every day, but no one can keep up with such wonderfully creative stuff as you do when they have to turn it out like a machine. I will look forward to whatever you create, whatever your schedule for posting.
Hope you had a great visit and feel wonderfully recovered.

Shirley said...

I have to say you make me feel human, Mel. I wondered how you and all of the others do it. I thought maybe the voices were talking to you all more than me.....just kidding. I sometimes post daily, but only when it works. I think you will like it. I wouldn't miss your posts for anything.

Your faithful followers will still be here, daily, weekly - whenever is right for you and look forward with eager anticipation at whatever yu have to share with us. Take care lady!

I fully understand, I am happy for as and when you can manage. I am so inspired by the crafty delights that you share with us all, so much so that I went out and bought me a Scor-Pal LOL
Thanks so much Mel for visiting my blog, it was a lovely surprise :)*
