Coming up on Pearls and Polkadots: A Big Announcement

This year, I have been focusing on moving towards partnership with bloggers, brands and finding amazing opportunities for Pearls and Polkadots. I have said this before, and I will say it time and time again but I really cannot remember my life without blogging. What did I ever do?

We are approaching half way through 2-0-1-6 and so much has been happening, not just for Pearls and Polkadots, but for me as well. Last month, I completed my four year undergraduate degree. I plan to go to teacher’s college in the Fall to become an elementary school teacher (my life-long dream). With all these changes…I am changing up the way I blog as well.

Today, I want to share some exciting news for myself and Pearls and Polkadots. Not just because I am excited, but mainly because it will affect my blogging routine immensely. So let’s get to it…

Pearls and Polkadots is packing up and going to Florida for the summer!

Yup! That’s right. A couple of months ago I was accepted into a program that is taking me down to Florida, for none other than Walt Disney World. I have really never gone out of Canada for longer than a week…so I am pretty excited to be down there for the summer!

The Changes

Other than the drastic change of location, Pearls and Polkadots will not be changing too much. However, because of the time commitment of this job and the fun experiences and opportunities that I will be having, I am deciding to post three days per week rather than five days per week, beginning May 16 (the day I leave!!).

Hopefully that will give me a lot of time to prepare some amazing content and show you my journey in Florida!

Follow along with me! It’s going to be a great summer!

Coming up on Pearls and Polkadots

This week, I have really been focusing on the “new year, new me” concept. That sounds completely cliche – I know…but New Year’s resolutions can be a good thing. I make them every year and even if I don’t stick to them, I still feel it is important to have some sort of direction. If I didn’t, then Pearls and Polkadots would not exist (that was my resolution last year)!

Today, I want to detail some of the things I hope (and will!) bring to you in the next year. We are at the beginning of a brand new year  and semester, which means I am really going to try and put 110% into quality posts! Coming up on Pearls and Polkadots

1. 5 Posts per Week 

On July 1, I took up the #30Dayblogging challenge, which required me to post every day for 30 days. I got so into it, that I carried it past July and ended up writing every day until mid-November. Once I began school, I started to get extremely busy. Posting every single day became tedious and my post quality quickly deteriorated! For 2-0-1-6, I am focusing on quality posts on weekdays only.

2. Outfits, outfits, outfits!

Style blogging requires outfit posts – so I am hoping to bring you regular outfit posts to beef up the style side of Pearls and Polkadots. Not to mention, I love a good photo shoot! Hopefully I can do several in a week, but we will have to see!

3. Collaborations 

Bloggers support bloggers. That is a motto to live by in this world. Without each other, we would get nowhere. So expect to see more collabs with different style bloggers, communities, etc. I am really trying to focus on this aspect of my blogging career.

4. #FlashbackFridays 

One of my favourite things to do is go back a month or two (or three!) and see how my blog has evolved. As you become more experienced and get to know your blog (and your niche), you seem to improve your writing skills, standardize your format, and get better at what you post. I am slowly revamping each post to be consistent with my writing style now, and for the next month or so, I want to reflect and flashback on those old posts.

Follow my journey with me as Pearls and Polkadots grows.

It’s going to be a great year and I can’t wait to have you follow along with me.
