So if you read here often, you probably noticed some changes that have happened recently. Most obvious being the design. I am very happy with how clean and organized everything is now, and I think it goes hand in hand with a couple other things changing round these parts.
I have honestly put off writing this post for a long time, due in part to the fact that I was not sure what to say or if what I was going to say was the right decision, but now I am confident in my choice and ready to make the changes that I have been considering for some time.
When I started blogging (a long time ago when I first got married) it was only about my life with Scott, and in fact it was a completely different blog. In March of last year I thought up starting a "budget friendly fashion blog" that would be purely dedicated to showcasing awesome finds on a modest budget. Over the last year my blog has grown SO much, and with it fast approaching a quarter million views, I can honestly say how appreciative I am of all the readers who love my blog, and letting me share all of this with you. I have loved blogging, and I am so grateful to my supporters who helped me keep this going. But recently I have felt somewhat constrained by the current focus of my blog.
With me being a stay at home mom, and no job to keep me preoccupied during the day, I started writing and posting about clothes, but at this point in my life it isn't my top priority. I have an amazing job that keeps me as busy as can be. I have a gorgeous baby girl who is growing each and every day and I don't want to miss a minute, and I have a hot husband who I just want to cuddle and talk to every minute that he is home.
I want to keep doing what I think is fun, so I am shifting the focus into whatever I feel like writing about. I want to focus more on my family, friends, goals, and things that make me happy. Those come first no matter what! I hope all my readers understand the decision that I made. I will still do some giveaways and outfit posts every now and then, so if you want to, stick around :)
I don't know how The Dime Diary is going to grow from here on out, but I am happy with whatever comes from it<3
