It feels kinda funny posting this, because I shared it on Instagram two weeks ago, and this piece has already sold...but I know not everyone has an Instagram account, so you might not have seen this yet!
Part of that first statement will come into play later down the post, so please, read on.
This cart was a lucky find for me, and I really really wanted to find a spot here at home to use it, but there wasn't anywhere I could see it working so I took it down to Aunt Bee's House, and it sold in about a week.
If we had a larger master bath, I think it would've been great to use in there, so that's how I staged it for the blog.
I also added one of my table runners just for some visual softness and an added layer of color.
This was such a solid cart and had some great features like the locking wheels.
It rolled very smoothly. It was used in a hospital at the turn of the century.
Later on it was used at a local university.
I also added the French basket because it looks great with everything!
Plus, if I was using it in my home, it would be great for tucking away stuff that isn't that pretty to look at on open shelves.
I'm glad it sold quickly, and I hope the new owners are loving it!
This brings me to the update portion.
Last year, I took an online class from several well known bloggers on building your business and your brand.
I was super pumped, and ready to get serious about all aspects of my business, including blogging.
I had goals of blogging 3x a week and building it to 5x a week- all while continuing the other part of what I do.
Well, as you can see, I am still blogging sporadically, and I am still frustrated.
My question to you is do you feel like blogging is changing?
I still see all the favorites continuing to blog, but it feels like there is a shift happening more to Instagram as a way for people to quickly look at inspiration vs. reading a blog.
I love Instagram- it's a quick way for me to check in and see beautiful photos from people who's style I like, and a quick caption or link to their blog if I want to read more.
Honestly, I can't even tell you the last time I looked at a blog post myself!
I know a lot of my followers tend to scroll through my photos rather than read the content, primarily because they tell me (whether they mean to or not)
I enjoy blogging from the creative aspect, and I still want to build my brand, but I would love to know your thoughts.
What do you most enjoy reading or seeing here?
I feel like my home decor posts get more love than anything and it's probably what is most lacking here from a regularity stand point.
Or maybe it's just that I need to be more regular in my posting in general??
Thanks in advance,
