I’ve taken the past couple weeks to take a small break from writing and blogging. I found myself thinking of the blog as a chore. I lost the will to write – I was losing interest in the topics I was writing about. But now it’s June, and I’m thinking I’m going to make some changes around here.
From this point forward, the blog will have more of a lifestyle focus, specifically Toronto lifestyle. This summer I plan to do plenty of things in and around the city. So, now I’ll write about the things I do as they come up – the food I eat, the sights I see, the places I go, the food I eat (did I mention that already?).
In case you didn’t know, I’m a total foodie
This June, I’ll be going to Taste of Toronto and Taco Fest. Last weekend I attended Brunch Fest and it was delicious! I’ll be taking plenty of pictures of everything I try.
Something else that I will be doing is sharing any food recipes that I try at home. I already have a couple of things in mind that I want to write about (next post maybe?).
I’m excited for this new blog direction. I can’t wait to share all of my adventures (food related or not) with you this summer!
I haven’t written a new blog post in two weeks now. There’s a number of reasons really, the main ones being busy with work and dealing with personal issues.
People come and people go. That’s just how life is.
Something I’ve been learning to deal with as of late is being alone. Both physically and emotionally. I’ve always been a quiet and introverted person. But I guess its when there’s no one around that you crave the presence of others.
Lucky me got sick earlier this week, meaning I got to spend more time at home and work on cross stitching. I haven’t forgotten about my cross stitch challenge (new post about that will come next week, promise!). But today I wanted to share some of my favourites of the week. Most of my recent blog posts have been about blogging so I thought, hey why not start a new series where I share some of the things I’m liking this week.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d take a look back at one of my favourite TV shows – How I Met Your Mother. The show focuses on Ted Mosby who tells his son and daughter the story of how he met their mother. Ted recounts all the stories of his friends (Marshall, Lily, Robin and Barney) and past girlfriends. The show had everything in it – comedy, drama, and definitely romance.
In this post, I’ll share my top 5 favourite episodes, in no particular order. Picking from 9 seasons was no easy task. If you’ve never watched the show (or never finished the series, in which case what are you waiting for?!), this is your warning that this post contains spoilers.
Announcing my new name change!
As much as I wanted to stick with my old URL, I felt like it wasn’t really me. Hence I felt the need to rebrand. So I got to thinking about what I could use for my new name. I realize since I already have “KathleenCG_” as my handle on my Instagram, Twitter, AND Pinterest, it only makes sense to have it as my website/blog as well.
I want to focus mainly on crafts and beauty. However I’m not afraid to branch out and write about other things too, such as music, travel, and lifestyle. My professional work will still have its pages. This is a place for employers to see my work and also get a feel for my personality by reading my blog. My hope is to have a blog that anyone can read and will enjoy. By using my name as the URL, it gives me the chance to switch things up should I decide to change directions in the future.
When the idea to rebrand hit, the excitement was high to get everything up and running asap. But I realized it’s best to take the time to really perfect things. I really don’t want to have to go through the process of rebranding (again). I had a checklist of things to do, and the launch was not going to happen until everything was completed off the list.
This blog will be a big commitment to me this 2017. I’m very excited to see where it goes! What are your goals for this year?
