With the start of a New Year comes new thoughts and ideas. Usually, I spend the month of January contemplating the rest of the year. After some thought, I have decided to make some minor changes, additions and deletions to the F-stopmama blog. (I’m keeping the name, because well I like it!)
I started this blog almost five years ago (March will officially be five years). When I started this blog I had no idea what I wanted out of my blog. I jumped in, fell on my face, floundered and eventually found my rhythm. This past year I have entertained you with Travel Thursdays, Sustainable Sundays and the Weekly Photo Challenge. All of which I have enjoyed.
Now for the changes. I love change. I embrace it. I love it.
Weekly Photo Challenge – I am keeping this for 2016. It challenges and encourages me to look back through my archives or to create something new. This will continue to be a weekly post.
Travel Thursdays – Although travel has been put on the back burner as we build our life in the country, this one is also staying. I have a few more posts to finish up our western US trip, those are just as much for me as for the blogging world. Selfish I know, I can be at times. After that, I have some trips to dig out of my archives. In addition, this year will probably include some local travel. So there will be enough material to continue Travel Thursdays for 2016. This will be a monthly post.
Sustainable Sundays – This one will be changing. This year it will be Simple Life Sundays. I am still thinking about the name, so that may change slightly. What will Simple Life Sundays entail? Glad you asked. A chronicle, if you will, of the major changes we have undergone over the past few years and how we did it. This will not be a how-to but more of a guide from our point A to point B. My hope is to inspire those that may be thinking, “maybe it’s time for a change”. Stay tuned for the first post, which will explain more. This will be a monthly post.
Changing Seasons – This is brand new for 2016. I found this while browsing the Daily Post, under their events section. It fits perfectly with our home in the country so I have decided to take it on. Here is a link if you are interested. This will be a monthly post.
A typical month will look something like this:
First week – Weekly Photo Challenge
Second week – WPC & Simple Life Sunday
Third week – WPC & Travel Thursday
Fourth week – WPC & Changing Seasons
That is the plan for 2016. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my followers, those who have been with me from the beginning and all of my new followers. Thank you very much for stopping by my little corner of the blogging world!! I look forward to sharing lots of new content in the coming year.
