Just wanted to share some new features I got goin’ on the blog! If you’re an RSS reader like me, you never actually click on my actual blog, which means you’ll miss out on all my little widgets 🙂 No worries, they haven’t been all that exciting… Until now!
So I’ve debated back and forth for a while now as to whether or not I want to branch out into a more lifestyle blog, especially once I become a mom and my DIYs take a back seat to changing diapers and breast feeding for a bit. Oh wait, you DO wanna hear all about baby poop? Well in that case….
On the one hand I’ve learned SO SO much from parenting and pregnancy bloggers, and so part of me wants to share my experiences as a way of contributing to this incredibly resourceful community. But on the other hand, I also want to stay true to my original mission of writing about things for the home, which is something that I am truly passionate about.
So I came up with a compromise.
Instead of posting about non-house stuff, I have created a “lifestyle” corner of the blog (left hand side of the page). Here I’ll write about all things maternity, relationships, parenting… and other life related tidbits I learn along the way. These features will not come through your email (if you subscribe) or be posted to Facebook or Twitter, so it’s totally up to you if you feel like reading them. To see them, simply go to the blog url (www.housefullofpretty.com) and click away at your leisure! I may post some things to Pinterest, mostly because that’s how I found fabulous information… but that is still TBD.
This section will definitely grow, but one area that I’ve been working on behind the scenes is now live…. I call it Maternity Fashion. My non-Kim Kardashian fashion tips. It’s basically a lot of maternity friendly outfits and lame self portrait shots in the mirror. I was obsessed at looking at these from other bloggers, so decided to join in on the fun. You can see it here.
Also in this section is my Instagram feed. Follow me, and you’ll see lot’s of pictures of food, Tony doing manual labor, and Roxy dog in cute poses. Totally intriguing, eh? You can see more here.
