What I've Learned From Blogging

I haven't been blogging for very long, but I'm so glad I made the decision to join the community.  First and foremost (aside from blogging), follow your passion whatever it may be - sure I have a passion for my daughter, my husband, my family. That is a given.   But I also have a passion for design and for that, blogging is a wonderful outlet.  Here are a few of my top items that popped into my head that I've learned so far in this short amount of time (and I credit Jane from the great blog Modern Jane for planting this topic in my head that I've thought about all day).

There is a ton of support in the blogging community.  Even though I haven't been blogging very long, I already feel as though I've made some new blog friends that share the same interests - and that is a great feeling.

Reach out and comment on posts that you are drawn to or e-mail a fellow blogger that you find common ground with - don't be shy - it's all good, we all love design and great DIY projects and of course a great before and after!

There are so many fun projects that await you right in your very own home, but these projects take time. Your home is a constantly evolving space for you to mold, create, and enjoy.

If you are itching to do something different with a room in your home, go for it!  What do you have to lose?!

LOVE the room and items that surround you.  And spread the love - if you're excited about something, I guarantee at least a few others will share that excitement.

The power and versatility of spray paint.  Yep, spray paint.  Love.

Wow.  I could go on and on.  This may be installment 1 of many more to come.  So much I have learned in so little time, and so much more to learn which is very exciting. 


  1. Cute post! i love how you incorporated all these Etsy sellers. You know how we love our eye candy. :-) glad you "joined the community"!

  2. It is amazing all of the wonderful things the design blogging community has to offer. I am so happy I joined it back in January, I have learned so much and it is amazing how it becomes apart of you. Glad you have joined the community Holly!

  3. This is an amazing group of people. In the past almost two years that I've been blogging I've received so much good advice from others and made some great online friends.

  4. Holly, thank you for this post. As a new blogger myself, I am loving having a creative outlet that is my own. Your tips and advice are so helpful and encourage me to keep plugging away. In this one post alone, I have found three great new blogs that inspire.

    Keep up the great work. I'm happy to follow your blog.
