I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about my blog. It’s hard not to compare and beat yourself up at times. Yesterday I had the amazing opportunity to meet with Tauni, PR genius and co-founder of Creative Estates Conference (amongst many other incredible things). We were discussing my thoughts and she got me thinking,
“What do I want from my blog?”
Basically, it comes down to what I like the most about blogging are the relationships I build and the friendships I make.
I really want to get to know you my readers. I’ve been fortunate to meet some of you IRL (in real life) and have enjoyed that immensely. I realize that I can’t meet all of you in person, but I would still like to develop friendships with you the best I can through this blog, email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
I like to share projects I’ve made with you because it’s an outlet for me, of sorts, to reach out to others. Remember when you were a little kid and you were so excited to show your mom and dad anything you made. I guess I’m still like that. So I truly LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when I post something and you guys share your feedback with me. It makes my day more than you will ever know. But I realize that I need to do a better part about reaching out to you and actually connecting.
Therefore, I’m going to start something new. I’ll share something with you about me, then I REALLY want you to share back. Kind of like we are having a “getting to know you” conversation.
To kick things off, I’ll tell you a few things about myself.
This is my family on two days ago on Easter Sunday.
My name is Tam, short for Tamarynn. I’ve been married to my husband, Dan for almost 9 years. We have two daughters, Kennedy (5) and Taylor (4), one son Carson (22 months), and another boy coming in about 10 weeks.
We live in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. I’m originally from the sunny St. George, Utah area, but moved away when I went to college, met my husband, and he dragged me to the cold after we graduated 8 years ago. I’ve been trying to acclimate ever since and still struggle with the snow. Before I had children I was an accountant. Now I get to be a SAHM and love every difficult minute of it!
I’ll limit it to that for now. I’ll share more in the future, but now I want to get to know YOU!
If you read this, please leave a comment telling me what your blog is. I want to come visit you and get to know you better. If you want to leave a tidbit of info about you as well, that would be great! Help me get to know you better, any way I can. I would really appreciate it.
And as always, thanks for reading! You guys rock!!!
