It's Time for a Change

I love blogging!

I have been posting 5 days a week on Everyday Inspired for the last 3 1/2 years.  My goal is to provide content that will inspire your creative business and life.

Things like Embrace Harmony Week, Inspired Success Week, Breathing Room, and Inner Spark, has some of my favorite content and I enjoyed creating all of these series.

Everyday Inspired has grown a lot over the last few year, and I have met an amazing group of bloggy friends. You are the reason I come back week after week with new posts.

Over the last few weeks I have come to realize that it is more challenging to create new content, and to accomplish everything I would like to, to meet my goals.

I have decided to take a blogging break.

I will be posting a Motivation Monday post every week and few random posts sharing some of my new projects. So stop by on Monday's and share your thoughts with me.

I will be back later this summer with the new and improved Everyday Inspired! It will include a new look and lots of new content.

Speaking of new content, I would love to have you as a contributor on Everyday Inspired! If you are passionate about inspiration, business, creativity, and motivation then I would love to talk with you about doing guest posts or being a regular contributor. Contact me at additionsstyleblog@gmail.com and lets talk about your ideas.

I am really excited to take this time to regroup and start fresh with new ideas.  I am also looking forward to creating a new collection of jewelry, and really building up my inventory in my Etsy shop and for my holiday shows.

I will still be around, visiting and commenting on blogs, hanging out on Twitter, Facebook, PinterestGoogle+, and I thought I would give Instagram a try this Summer. I would love to connect with you on social media!

Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions, ideas, or suggestions. additionsstyleblog@gmail.com

I hope you have a great summer, see you soon!

  1. And a well deserved break at that! :) Enjoy your time off!

  2. Your posts are always inspiring! Enjoy your break, Valerie :)

  3. Good for you!! Enjoy your break and I look forward to seeing the "new" blog ideas. :-)

  4. Valerie that is an amazing accomplishment! Wow, blogging 5 days a week for 3 1/2 years! I applaud your remarkable achievement and must admit that not many of us could attain this milestone. You most definitely deserve a vacation.

    We will all look forward to your Monday postings and to your updated, remodeled blog when you return. In the meantime, enjoy a well earned break, have fun, rest and recharge those creative batteries. I send you a big e-hug . :)

  5. I believe sabbaticals are essential.
    We all need time to recharge our batteries occasionally or our creative energy will fizzle out.

  6. Nothing wrong with taking a blogging break, that's what summers are for! (vacation!!)

    Can't wait to see what you are up to with the new ideas, and I'm sure I'll see you around. :) Your posts always inspire me, but I have no idea how you manage 5 days a week posts, because I can't even keep up with reading them that often!

    Cheers to a blessed vacation Valerie!

  7. Hey V. :)

    More power to you for blogging so inspirationally for all that time, 5 days a week, I was so proud of myself the first year when I was blogging 3 times a week, LOL :)

    It is important to take time to refocus and (unfortunately) there is only so much time and energy to go around, so we have to apply it where it best works for us to grow :)

    Enjoy your break :)

    Cheers, T. :)
