Why I changed my nanny blog to a lifestyle blog
I am sure some of you noticed that I changed the name, layout and style of my blog. My blog used to be “I’m the nanny” and I changed it to “Living a fairytale.” I want to tell you why I did this. I decided to change my blog because I felt like I couldn’t post as many things as I wanted to with my nanny blog. I have such a large variety of interests and I didn’t want to dedicate my blog to only one subject. I was also finding that it was very difficult to come up with crafts, have my daughter help me make them, take pictures and write a post about it. That was a ton of work and I wasn’t getting very many people interested in it. If you are a blogger yourself, you will know that it is also a lot of work to re-brand your blog. You have to decide what you want your blog to be about and come up with a creative name. I decided to do a lifestyle blog so that I can share everything I am interested in. I am so excited for this new journey and I hope you like what I have planned. I chose the blog name “Living a fairytale” because…
I thought it was adorable
It reminds me of my daughter since she acts like my little princess
It is girly
Life is a fairytale
It reminds me of princesses, castles, fairies and pink- all things I loved as a little girl
Here are some topics I am hoping to post about…
Crafts are (and always have been) a big part of my life. I feel that I am very creative and have a natural talent when it comes to arts and crafts. I remember constantly wanting to do art when I was a little girl. I always enjoyed drawing, coloring, painting, and making new things. With my blog, I want to share some of my favorite things to make including sewing projects, crochet items, paper crafts and more! I love learning new ways to make things and I love designing things on the computer. I really should have gone to school to be a graphic designer or something, huh!?
I have always enjoyed reading and was usually made fun of when I was younger for always having a book in my hand. Now that I am older, I don’t even care. I’ll read wherever I want. I love learning new things and reading fiction books. Now that I am a mom, I find it hard to read but I have been trying to do it when I am working out! I really want to find some inspirational books I can share with all of you reading this blog. Reading is so beneficial for all ages and I think more people need to do it.
Being a mom
I knew I wanted to be a mom ever since I was about 10 years old. I was very interested in babysitting around that age and I discovered my love for kids. I was a nanny for awhile and I loved having that role as a leader and caregiver for little ones. I am very loving and patient (sometimes) and I think I am a pretty good mom. I feel like I have a purpose in my life now that I have a little girl. I love how she copies everything I do and watching her grow has been such an amazing thing. Everything I do, I do for her best interest. Life is not all about me anymore and I have realized how important family is!
There is so much negativity in our world right now and I think that the media has a huge impact on this. I want to be able to turn on my computer or TV and see positive, uplifting stories. I totally understand that horrible things happen in our world, but we need to be here for each other. Everyone is always arguing and fighting and I just hope that my blog will bring positivity and hope to the social media world.
Fashion, beauty and cute things
I am such a girly girl! I love feeling pretty and wearing cute clothes, shoes and accessories. When I have money, I love shopping! I also love dressing my daughter in cute clothes and I love anything pink, glittery, lacey or floral!
I love fitness and talking about health. It keeps me accountable and I like motivating other people to live a healthy lifestyle. I really enjoy taking classes at The Y, using the elliptical, pilates and yoga. I haven’t been eating well lately, and I have been slacking on working out so I am hoping to get motivated very soon!
Faith in Jesus
I am a Christian and I will be posting bible verses, prayers and anything I learn from my journey with Him. God has been so good to me and I am finally understanding that everything happens for a reason and that he has a plan for all of us. I am excited that you are following me on my blog and I would love to connect with you so feel free to contact me on your favorite social media site!
