So I found myself in a different frame of mind this weekend when I decided to buck the system. That's right....I've decided to go against the experts and do my own thing. *gasp*
The blogging experts have long stated that a blogger should find her niche, her one area of expertise to write about, and stick with it. They suggest a narrow focus on one subject matter makes for a more successful blog.
I don't like it. No thanks.
I've discovered that trying to keep a narrow focus feels binding, suffocating, and limited. I'm not a one dimensional person and I have lots of hobbies and interests that I love and that I love to share with you. For the last year I have been trying to keep up with three, yes 3, different blogs. I wrote here anything inspirational, spiritual, and bible study related, with a little family mixed in.
I also wrote at another blog called Garden Sweet Garden, where I wrote the chronicles of everything plant related, because in the summer time, that is where I live....in the garden.
Then you all know that I love photography, so I was also sporadically posting photos at my blog Capturing Beautiful.
This weekend I consolidated all of those posts and imported them here, to Heart and Soul Reflections. It felt so good! Now you'll find a variety of posts that reflect my personality and lifestyle. No, it's not what the experts recommend, but oh well. It just feels right.
I'm really excited to be able to open up the possibilities here and share with you ALL of me, not just bits and pieces. I'm sure you'll notice an immediate change if you've been a follower around here for long!
I hope you'll enjoy this new format and all the news things that you will find here at Heart and Soul Reflections!!
