I Hate To Ask You To Direct My Content But.....
.....I'm about to.
I'm all about those filler pieces of blog content at the moment - you know the types, the ones that are short, written quickly, you don't have a lot to take away from it but it's not utter horse shit (I hope). I can only apologise, I've had a busy week which has meant I haven't had time to take photos for the actual decent posts I have scheduled and I've got a family wedding this weekend so am scheduling this on Friday night so I don't have to think about it when I'm far too bleary eyed on Sunday.
But onto the matter at hand.
I kinda hate asking for ideas for my blog content. I have a lot, I have a double page bullet journal spread of ideas I haven't written and don't get me started on actual bullet journal content, there's a whole bigger separate list for that. I'm not out of ideas and I kinda hate it when bloggers put up them twitter polls like 'what do you want to see?' (I know, I'm a hypocrite and a bitch). I'm like hun you write what you wanna write and I'll be reading either way.
And here I am about to do the same.
But the reason I'm asking is I have come to the conclusion that my blog is somewhat lacking in a part of my life that has been VERY dominant in the first 6 months of this year. And that my friends is my house.
I've touched upon it briefly, I've done some homeware lists, some inspiration and a coupla posts on what to expect when you have your own place but I definitely haven't scraped even the bottom of the barrel of what I could talk about.
If you're new and you need some context I live with my boyfriend on his family farm/cider orchard (yes, really) and whilst we live on the same plot as his family, we have our own space. We have a mini (albeit 3 bedroom) spot and in January/February we had it renovated with lots of electrics and building work and plumbing and in March/April we finished moving in, shopping, decorating and unpacking.
I haven't shared a massive deal about it really and the main reason for this is I don't want to do an outright in depth tour of the house which whilst it's content I love about other people's blogs, I don't want to do my own. Happy to share the odd snap and plenty of details but a full on Alfie/Zoella style tour is not on the cards- some things I want to keep to myself in the old blogging world.
But, despite the lack of house tour I still have plenty of content I didn't share, haven't found the time to share and ideas include;
- Room by room details and products.
- Where we got all our furniture.
- How to renovate on a budget.
- Tips for building work and contractors.
- DIYS and decorating tips.
- Where to buy decorations for cheap.
- How to source the best bargains.
- How to stay sane!!!
Here we are then, me asking you to direct my content. I want you to tell me if the house and everything that comes with it is content you're interested in? What you want to see? If there's any topics I haven't covered that you want to know more about?
Drop me a comment, send me a tweet, let me know what you want and I aim to please!
