{in biz} 2011 – The Year of the Blog

This year I’m focussing on getting my blogging-sh!t together.

I’m taking a semi-sabbatical from jewellery.  Semi, in that I’m only going to be creating 52 pair of earrings – no more.

I’m returning to my love of photography, and I’m reading as much relevant blog-related material as I can get my hands on.

At the moment, I’m (slowly) working my way through:

-Kelly Rae Roberts Flying Lessons – The Whole Shabang;

Tara Gentile’s 52 Weeks of Blogging and 52 MORE Weeks of Blogging, and;

31 Days to Build a Better Blog from over at ProBlogger.

Which brings me to my point.

My ‘Blog Mission”.

What is it that I hope to achieve this year?

I want to find my blogging voice.

That little essence of me that will connect with you.

I’ve been trying to do that in the last 12 months, but have made the decision that this year is THE year.

{If you have any good suggestions on what else I could/should read, please let me know!}

I want to share with you, through my photography, the beauty in the details of the ‘everyday’.

{What would you like to see photos of?}

I want to become more active in the blogging community.

Really get to ‘know’ some the wonderful folk out there in the ether.

{Can you recommend some great reads?}

I want to share with you my passion for a natural, healthy lifestyle.

I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s something that I’m enthusiastic about and that I’ve learned about over the years.

And my final share – the beauty of handmade.

Another thing I’m passionate about.  Supporting ‘Independent Creative Professionals’… buying beautiful things that are made with love… a unique and divine shopping experience with an ‘actual’ person…

{What are your thoughts here?!}

So… 2011.  ‘THE’ year.
