Some days, I wonder if anyone still reads my blog. I know I don’t write as regularly as I used to, so, realistically, I imagine I’ve lost quite a few readers. Ganun talaga, right? Why should I expect anyone to visit my site when even I don’t log on so much?
Something has to change. And it’s a good time for change because my blog turns 5 years old this month. Woohoo to half a decade of existing on this space.
I know for sure that I’m not the same person, nor the same blogger that I was when I started writing here. My lifestyle has changed so much, and with it, my interests, too. Five years ago, I was newly married, and had just quit life as a corporate slave. When I started this blog, being a wife and hands-on mom was all so new to me, and now I can no longer imagine life as anything else.
The themes and topics of my posts have evolved, too, over the years. I have gone from writing about blogging and working at home to learning how to make baon everyday while still maintaining my sanity. There were a lot of reviews, food and restaurant posts, events, staycations, and the occasional giveaway. And then my posts became about moving out and nesting in my own space, caring for my family, and thriving as a homemaker.
It's been a little over a year since we moved in, and I can definitely say that this is my most used space at home. My kitchen. This is where the magic happens. It's often very messy, and there are still so many changes I want to make. More shelves, more counter space, a bigger fridge… The list goes on. But really, right now I just feel so fortunate to have a kusina of my own. Best gift ever talaga, @polcuyugs. ?? #homesweethome
As I read through my archives, I can clearly see that I’ve succeeded in turning this space into a time capsule of the amazing and also the challenging moments of the last 5 years. And now it’s time to move on.
No, I’m not quitting this blog. Just making some changes.
First, I think I’m gonna stop posting meal plans. Obviously, I can’t get myself to share those regularly, and the desire to do so just gives me unnecessary, self-imposed stress. Lol. I tried. Instead, I will focus on sharing more recipes, especially those that I’ve been trying out for my #100homecookedmeals and #theglutenfreeproject experiments.
I also plan on writing more about are my little home decorating attempts, and the fun DIY projects that the boys and take on. I hope to share more of my journey towards becoming a true domestic goddess / marvelous homemaker, too, because that’s my life now and I love it.
I want to cut back on restaurant reviews, so unless a place really made me say ohmygoshbestfoodeverguys, chances are I won’t be writing about it. Same goes for product reviews. After all, why would I waste my time and brain cells posting about something that I don’t absolutely love?
So basically this blog, my blog, will be more of a reflection of life as I live it, than anything else. It’s gonna be me giving you the chance to spend time at home with me, MrsC, (see what I did there?) from wherever it is that you may be reading from. And who knows, someday, you may just find yourself sitting with me in my living room for real. What an exciting thought!
