If you’re a regular reader here on Funky Junk, you may have noticed I’m kind of a wing it type of writer.
Planning is tricky for me. For if I plan something, it suddenly becomes ‘work’.
So I need to trick myself into believing I don’t need to do something to feel like doing something…
You hear me, right? 🙂
Because I am built the way I am built, I don’t plan even one blog post, except for the weekend link parties. Everything is spur of the moment, as it rolls fresh off the life press. Photos are seldom older than 24 hours.
While my main premise is about decorating with junk, if I just blogged about that, it would’t fuel me quite the same.
Therefore, you’ve come to expect a real mish mash of topics.
Thing is, life simply blends into other areas.
Over the weekend, I took a poll in comments HERE on last weekend’s link party to see who read those types of posts. 77 comments later, you came out in full force! I drank in each and every single comments. Thank you for chiming in!
But in all fairness, most chimed in to that post because they do read those posts.
So today’s post is geared so everyone has a chance to be heard.
I want to know what kinds of things you like hearing about. And perhaps, some you’d rather not.
So…. here’s what I DO blog about… and why.
But the smaller projects are quicker and easier to produce. And just as much fun, such as this shelf made from reclaimed wood.
A year ago, I came out with my own line of stencils themed around the old signs I was making. This was created out of a need… I was getting asked to sell the signs or sell decal stencils.
But I desired to remain a designer, vs. a manufacturer, soI held out until I landed the perfect folks to work with.
So naturally, I share my new designs, and creations with you.
But I do try and pace it out, so you only perhaps see a touch of the product line once a week or less.
I also incorporate lots of junk decorating around a launch, so there’s MUCH more to take in than one simple new design.
Most of the signs ‘do something.’ Just like how I really decorate in my own home.
Ok, you know how much I love to snag a cat or two in most DIY pictures! Melt…
After acquiring my newest toy, I’ve been hitting the local bike trails.
I’m not an athlete by any means. I jump on the bike, jean and heavy jacket clad, and head through the heron reserve. But always find a story to share along the way, whether it’s about a sunbeam that follows me, or visiting my parent’s farm.
Oh goodness. I couldn’t imagine not sharing where I hit the road to next. Whether it’s a road trip local to me, heading for the tropics, or offering up Disney tips during Christmas, you know I’m good for a story or 8!
I’m so not one of those planned bloggers that stores projects to post about for when I’m gone. I write about where I am.
Stories from the heart
By far, most of your comments come to life when I share a story that’s hard to belt out. But I also like to write about fluff too, when the mood strikes.
This has also spun into simple thought kind of writeups, I’ve deemed Daily Junk Mail.
My latest hard story to write was How to make it when you’re newly single HERE.
And of course, my life story HERE.
By now you KNOW I’m not a super tidy person. So cleaning posts are a must, while attempting a little revamp to pretty things up and hopefully, inspire you to do the same.
Thing is, it isn’t nearly as fun if I clean alone. I’d much rather challenge you too!
A link party transpires every Friday night, and runs through Sunday night. Bloggers are invited from all over to bring their latest junk projects, in which I feature special highlights each week.
I also inject a little of my work in these posts, but they’re mainly about what others bring over, for a refreshing change.
Another reason… I don’t write on weekends. I usually use that time to create or enjoy family time. So the weekend post is for two things… to help fuel you with fresh ideas from others, and to give me a little time off. So this link party is kind of ‘an extra’, not an ‘instead of’.
There are more things I write about too of course, but this is pretty much it in a nutshell.
And now I’d like to hear from you!
Is there more you’d like to hear about? Less of?
Do you have any questions you’d like answered? Ask me anything! I reserve the right to not have to answer though. 🙂
I’ll update with a new post after hearing you out.
The floor is all yours, friends! Let’s chat…
