Hey guys! Today I want to share a couple of changes I’m making to the blog, and tell you how you can win the pretty handmade ring pictured above.
From now on I’ll only be publishing weekly outfit posts (on Mondays). So no more Thursday inspiration posts. That doesn’t mean the end of fashion inspo on Looking Glass though. Instead of doing weekly blog posts, I’m going to start doing a monthly newsletter. If you enjoy my inspirational posts be sure to sign up – you’ll receive my free eBook too!
It’s not that I’m losing motivation or am in an inspirational rut. It’s more of a quality over quantity thing. Ever since I started this blog I’ve been figuring out the best way to balance it with my FT job. Blogging is a lot of work and it gets tiring doing both (especially since my day job physically tires me – I literally run around for 8 hours). Plus I have my Aliexpress blog. It’s like having 3 jobs.
I started to feel like I never had enough time do all the things I wanted to do in a day. Then I realized that I was putting all of this unnecessary pressure on myself. You can’t just work hard anymore, you have to work smart. And take care of yourself.
This way I can really focus on my outfit posts each week. Especially now that I’ve started to use my own camera more – I have the extra step of editing photos. Now I’ll be able to work on the newsletter all month to make it the best it can be, whereas before I’d scrounge to put together an inspo post in a few hours on Wednesday night or even Thursday afternoon. And I’m the kind of person that likes to revise posts multiple times.
Handmade Ring Giveaway
As a token of appreciation for all the future subscribers of my newsletter, I’d like to give one of you this beautiful handmade ring. I’m not 100% sure what stone it’s made with but I think it’s either angelite, celestite, or blue quartz.
All you have to do is subscribe here or in my sidebar by Tuesday, November 29th! I will announce the winner in the first newsletter, which will be sent out the next day. Good luck to all who enter!
