First of all, thank you all for the kind words, comments, texts, phone calls and emails regarding the birth story of our son. Thank you! Your words mean more to me than you’ll ever know… and to John, my sweet-sappy hubby. He actually loves reading (and crying! (God help me!)) comments and kind words from you all, so thank you for that! xo!
So, here’s my question… I’ve battled with getting personal on my “business” blog for some time. That mainly started when I got pregnant and began the weekly pregnancy posts. I toyed around with transitioning all of my “personal” blogs to a brand new blog and leave this one “business/ professional” related. Well… as “professional” and “business” related a makeup + hair artist team can get/ be. 😉 BUT, then when I started thinking of that, I decided not to. My clients (past and present), their families, their friends, as well as mine and the friends that I’ve made through my hobby of blogging all enjoyed coming to this blog, to sift through what crazy LRT is up to. Business and professional. Everyone showed interest and so much support in our struggles to conceive and then our pregnancy. So, I thought, what the heck, I’ll keep it all on my main, Be Pretty blog. I’m really dragging my question on here…
My question is… I’m really getting into this mommy stuff, half the time I’m clueless… not going to lie, but I love discovering this whole new world and our little journey that we started 2 months ago. I’m loving the move and designing our new home… finding fun odds and ends to pull it together and make it complete. I’m loving a GOOD SALE. Not just for clothes, but for home decor! I’m loving diving back into my background of interior design. These are all new little hobbies of mine! I’m actually having a hard time with the struggle of trying to lose the baby weight, but I’m enjoying being a little more healthy and accomplishing little weight loss successes. And then there’s marriage… how to balance a business, a working hubby (all normal life stuff), moving into a new house AND balancing the demands of a baby, plus the full time job of pumping… stuff that everyone experiences! I feel like there’s a lot that I can share, but I’m a little afraid to pour my heart out here… where I could be judged for being too open, talking about mommy, home and hubby stuff too much. Even though this is my own blog… my opinion has always been, if you don’t like what you’re reading then just skip over it and move to the next topic. BUT, it is an insecurity of mine… and this is a business that I’m running, so I do need to be somewhat “professional”.
So, what do you think??? Should I move my personal LRT blabber to a whole new blog? No need to worry, I already have one set up from the past, before I opened up about our journey to become parents. Or, would you rather see me keep things here and just not get too personal??? Or, is it ok to get personal? Especially since I do have a “professional” website, which showcases our work, talents and who we are. Totally separate from this blog. Is that too many LRT blogs to keep up with? I’m so hesitant, because I love that I’ve always used this blog as my “outlet”… from the very beginning, when I was still at my design job, this blog has always been my outlet for real-life-girly-stuff!
Chime in if you will… I’d love to know what you think!
ps… hope y’all are enjoying your snow day! This pic was taken two weeks ago during Henry’s very first snow! 🙂
