If you have noticed any 404 errors or changes to the site recently, it’s due to me getting rid of some of the clutter around here. With the blog being a little over 3 years old, there are tons of posts on here that I decided not to keep around. They were mostly boring personal posts that I blogged solely for the sake of blogging.
It’s like those newspapers and magazines you collect, thinking you will want to read them again someday – though all they are really doing is leaving a cluttered mess around your home. Because of that, I decided to simply delete a lot of the posts I wrote from 2009. I have them backed up so I can look at them again if I wish, but they aren’t really all that great, I promise.
I am also re-evaluating a lot of my activities related to my blogging. I really burned myself out on giveaways in April, and I want to slow down on those in the coming months. Don’t get me wrong, I really love to offer my opinion on products as well as the chance for my readers to win free stuff, but that isn’t the primary intention for this blog.
I want my blog to be a fun spot for those seeking reviews and giveaways, as well as an informative site where I share advice, experiences, and ramblings on parenting, working at home, saving money, weight loss, and whatever else falls into my head. I want to post content that my visitors enjoy reading and engaging with. I want comments! There, I said it.
I am having a new blog design being made as I type this, and I hope to launch it before I leave for Reviewer’s Retreat at the first of June. I am also considering adding buttons to the sidebar so that my special post series can be easily found.
Speaking of post series, right now I do a weekly post on Fridays titled “Tips for WAHMs“. I have been working at home since 2008, and love to share helpful info on the topic. I also plan to start a “Mommy Mondays” (tentative name, therefore it could change before I actually get it going ) with more advice that can help moms like me.
If anyone has any suggestions or things they’d like to see discussed on Southern Girl Ramblings, please leave them in the comments below!
