My Blog Intentions for 2019

To be honest I wasn't sure if I was going to write this blog post after having posted this post and this post, too much maybe? By now you're probably tired of hearing me say that I've been on planning mode this month, getting organized and gathering my thoughts, and even so my mind is still a bit of a whirlwind.  In one of my previous posts as mentioned above specifically 2019 Outlook, I talked about personal goals and resolutions for this year.

I want to pursue so many dreams with this little blog space of mine and I can't thank enough those of you who stop by here from time to time, for supporting me through this journey.  

The fact that you take time out of your busy days and schedules to stop by and have a read, really does mean the world to me, more than you'll ever know.

Having said that, this January actually celebrates year five and some of you may have read my previous post. You can read my anniversary post here.  Its been five years since I decided to jump on this train.  And I don't regret it one bit.  Its been quite an adventure and I've learned a lot along the way.  Its been so much fun sharing all or most of what I do, create, and love and those I do life with.  Its truly been a creative outlet for me outside of my daily hustle and bustle which includes my 6 hour office day job.

And as you all know last year, after having been with a dear family owned company for 4 years, it was time to finally say goodbye, as they decided to move the company 3 hours away from my hometown, therefore I had no choice but to say farewell.  You can read more about that here.  Though it was a sudden change and an unplanned one at that, it was both scary and a relief to plan and pursue blogging full time for a little while before deciding if I was going to go back to working a day job or stay home to blog full time.

Well here I am and though I did work hard to pursue blogging full time, the income from blogging wasn't making up for it and therefore I had no choice but to go back to office work.  I planned and I prayed that it would work but the truth is with my daily tasks and in order to share more of the things I love, I need money for the projects and upgrades we want to make in our home, even if it does include some DIY, renovating and keeping up a home isn't cheap in Southern California.

Believe me the last thing I wanted to do was go back to working for the man.  I've always wanted to work for myself and myself only.  This space is currently my happy place I love blogging just about every thing which is why this is a lifestyle blog.  It allows me to share about all the things with you guys.  The good thing is that I only work 6 hour days therefore I still have a little bit of time to blog with you guys and not feel too overwhelmed. 

This year, I have somewhat different plans for Charmed Crown & Co., here are a few things I'm shooting for in 2019:

TO BE CONSISTENT – Working almost full time, it makes it somewhat difficult to post as often as I want to. I am sorta sporadic, and sometimes go weeks or even a month without sharing anything. I hate that! So I started to commit to posting at least twice a week, if and when possible.  Sometimes more as I get into more projects and ideas from the Q&A survey you guys filled out really helped with that.

TO EXPAND MY CONTENT – Home decor and DIY projects were my main content for sometime, and that will still be something I love to do and share. However, I also love trying new recipes, health and wellness, not to mention I'm starting to really love sharing some of my favorite finds and even some of my personal style too, so I would like to add a lot more posts about those topics as well.

GET MORE PERSONAL – Over the last year I have shared more of my family journey with you, and I loved all your feedback on that. And now that my husband and I have learned a thing or two from going to couples therapy, I would love to share updates on how our marriage is going, and the transition into a blissful connection with your spouse. Also simple things like, what I’m reading, or listening to, maybe a monthly favorites post??

TO BUILD A COMMUNITY – This one is by far the most important one to me. You guys mean so much to me, and I want to really build better relationships with each and every one of you. Your emails, your comments on my posts, your interaction with me on social media, I LOVE IT ALL. I love talking to you guys and getting to know you! So keep the love and ideas coming!!

A BETTER EMAIL SYSTEM – Right now if you subscribe to my blog, you will basically get an email every time I post, with a link to that particular post. It’s a great way to know when a post goes live, but I want there to be more. So over the next month or two I will be working on a better system. There will also be bonus content and freebies that will just go out to my subscribers, like free printables or e-books. So be sure to sign up for those and keep an eye out! There is a subscribe box in the side bar and at the top of the blog!

So those are my main goals this year, aside from providing great content. But I really really would love to hear from you too. I want to know why you are here, because YOU are the reason I am here, the reason for this blog!

What brings you back? What content that I share is your favorite? What do you want there to be more of? Less of? Is there a topic I need to cover? Can I source specific home decor or self care items for you? I want to hear all your thoughts, so just scroll down and leave me a comment and tell me ALL THE THINGS!

Don't forget to take the time to give me your feedback by filling out this survey here.

I want this to be your happy place too. It means a lot to me that I am serving you with content you want, so I really look forward to hearing your ideas and thoughts!
