Let's talk about blog posts.


Yep, we're still here. We're actually working on some really exciting changes for this little blog, & we need your help as we revamp some things.

Blogging is a little bit of a dying art form. Instagram & Snapchat (& Vine & Facebook & Twitter) make every day goings-ons super easy to access. I am an avid user of all of those platforms... Well, except for Vine. I love the immediacy of them, & knowing what my sister in law in Cincinnati is up to with her kiddos on any random Friday afternoon. But I'm both a writer & an obsessive preserver of memories, with a super cute husband that makes life both funny & an adventure. Blogging is like a diary I can't quit, a photo album that doesn't require me to actually print photos. (Something I REALLY REALLY REALLY WISH I could commit to doing, let it be known.) I refuse to give up on blogging, even if that means being the girl speaking to an empty room.

I can't force blogging to be a thing again. Maybe that ship has sailed. But what I can do, since I refuse to quit just like Britney Spears (amIright) is better understand HOW to blog in 2016.

So, please. Take a second & answer the poll over there (to the left to the left). Did I miss something? Leave a comment! No account necessary... You can even be anonymous.

  1. As long as you stay in this room there will be at least one other girl in the room reading about your thoughts and lovely/funny life. She is me.

    And I will continue to keep posting as long as I can, as well. :)

    As much as I love your incredible style, have always admired your beauty, and delight in your wit, I love hearing you heart in the process and seeing what stirs wonder in you. You have such a gift with words and I think the demand a blog has to its readers is a gift, not an inconvenience. If I don't have time for 5-10 minutes to sit and care about someone else's life and their thoughts, I am a very small person indeed.

    You are a gem and I for one treasure your brilliance.


  2. Kelsey I have always loved your posts. You are a gifted writer and I feel a bit like I got to visit with you even from far away. I especially love you traditional lifestyle posts--both paragraph end bullet points, and the good things posts. I look forward to you getting back into it!


because lezz be frandz.
