I have organized the desk in our art studio/home office a bit in order for me to be able to get some work done in a quiet place. The rest of my apartment has so many distractions, especially in my dining room next to the kitchen. Although there is plenty of natural light in my home office, the dining room offers many things passing by the window to look at. Between that and the kitchen next to it just asking me to cook something, it's a complete distraction.
On my desk I have old post it notes with adorable illustrations, textbooks that need studying, a candle for calmness, and a vintage style magnifying glass for whimsy. My desk is up against the window that looks out to our courtyard of trees and grass. Mostly dogs and squirrels pass by, leaving me to whatever my be on my to do list at that moment.
On a more serious note, I've been struggling lately with how I feel about my blog, this blog. I created this blog when I thought I could use it personally and professionally. As much as I love blogging about the events that I'm working on, I cherish so much more documenting little moments in my life that I want to remember. This "events" blog has gone completely "lifestyle" and much more personal than I thought. I so enjoy blogging and the process of letting my blog unfold however I wish, so I don't want to force myself to continue blogging about events when I really love sharing my life and having others share theirs. Of course, little daily moments can be minuscule events, but I am so much more focused on my life right now. As my college career ends and my actual career begins, I feel that there is so much more going on that just my events.
What I mean by all of this, is that I don't love my blog name. Yelle Events. And I have to love it in order to feel like genuinely posting to it every week. I'm in the process of changing the name, the design, and the domain URL to something much more simpler, personal, and timeless. This will happen over the next two weeks. As much as I would love to just bite the bullet and switch everything over tonight - I don't want to do that to you, my readers, who I think enjoy reading what I've enjoyed posting.
This time around I'm not going to just brand something like I did "Yelle Events" because it's catchy and obvious. I already have something in mind and will slowly start to change my Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and then domain name.
None of you should have to do anything besides accept my lack of commitment! I can be with one man for 6 years and I can't even have a blog name (let alone a blog design) for more than a few months. This is all new to me so perhaps I am still zero-ing in on what I want this blog to become. Have any of you done this or felt this way? Trust me, I can commit to many things and it just seems that branding and style on my blog is just not one of them!
