Hey guys! I hope you had a wonderful first full week of the new year!
This week I shared 5 tips for transitioning your decor from Christmas to winter. My first tip was to keep it simple. We’re all tired after the holidays so no one feels like doing a lot of decorating, not to mention simple decor is much easier on the senses after the sensory overload of the holidays.
But that got me thinking…
Being a decor blogger is much more than just decorating my home. It’s also taking pictures of my decor, editing the photos, writing up instructions if it’s a DIY post or how I came about decorating the way I did if it’s a decor post, posting the post, and finally promoting the post on social media. I figure all of that takes around 2/3 of my time, which leaves around 1/3 of my time for actually decorating. And of course life happens to me just like it happens to everyone else and things come up that put me behind schedule.
I’m not much on New Year’s resolutions, but if I’m going to do anything different this year, it’s going to be this: I’m going to strive to keep my decor simple. I figure if I don’t have that much time as a full-time decor blogger to decorate, then how much time does the average person have? I’m guessing not all that much. So this year I’m going to focus on simple projects and decor that doesn’t take a lot of time to put together for inspiration that is more “real life” in the sense that people will be able to easily incorporate it into their own homes.
