New Year, New Look, New View

Now that it's a new year, I figured it was time for a new look for my blog! I created new blog header last night. Kinda hated taking a picture away of us, but I figured that I'm always posting pictures and I have some of my favorites permanently on my blog - so it was okay.

Anyone who knows me knows I love black and white - so I went with a black and white stripe header with the name of my blog. I put emphasis on "be" and may change the color of that word throughout seasons! A blog should reflect you and your personality and while we are all entitled to have our blog look how we want - I'm not in to my blog being cluttered and too busy. So I wanted my new header to be bold, while also clean and simple! And I think I achieved just that!
With that said, a new view or resolution I have for 2012 has to do with my blog! My blog has taken a back seat this past year. I do social media and a blog for the bridal magazine I work for, and that takes up most of my computer time which doesn't leave me much time or desire at the end of the day for my own blog. I enjoy keeping my own blog up and posting fun things, but I'm not going to feel pressure to do it. I used to feel guilty if I didn't get something posted or post a ton of photos - but I'm not anymore! Plus it takes the fun out of it when you get to feeling that way. So my new view for 2012 - if I get a blog up, great - if not - that's great too! I'm not going to beat myself up over it! When you work full time (especially in social media) it's hard to make time for things like this - at least it is for me at times. I do however enjoy blogging sometimes late at night. It's kind of like "me time."

So that's my new view on my blog for 2012! Don't forget about me though - I love to hear from all of you! It always makes my day!

The look is good! I really work at keeping my blog up because it's sort of my online scrapbook!

Love the new look! I couldn't agree more on social media. I also work with a lot of social media during the day and it can just wipe you at the end of the day!:) Hope you're having a great week!
