These days I’m feeling just a little drained- physically, mentally, and creatively. I know it’s a mixture of real work, our giant backyard project, lack of sleep, and the blog. It’s tough coming up with quality, original content every single week, so I thought it would be fun to ask YOU what you’d like to see. I’d love to get your feedback for post ideas, project ideas, and other outlets I should be trying. I just want to open up a discussion about your favorite content, what you’re interested in, and answer any questions y’all might have!
If you’re new or newish to the blog- hi & welcome!! I’m Sarah. My husband, Emmett, and I are renovating… again. I’m a designer in Utah, he’s in accounting, and in our ‘free time’ (ha!) we work on our house and wrestle our dogs, Finn and Johnny Cash. That pretty much sums it up.
Since the beginning of the year, the blog has shifted primarily toward interior and DIY content- which I’m stoked about! That’s what most of you prefer and that’s what I’m passionate about, so it’s a win/win. Lately I’ve been considering testing other social outlets to connect on a deeper level. Are you guys into podcasts? I’ve been trying to do way more video this year as well. I’m always on Insta stories sharing the day-to-day… I’ve had more fun with that as opposed to Facebook live, but am open to anything.
I’ll be sharing a really fun client project in a couple weeks that I know you’re going to love! I’m trying to do more of that as well… share the real projects (client work), and not just in MY home.
I really just thought I’d pick your brain in this post. To be honest, I’ve been feeling a little bit discouraged with social media and the blog lately. I spend a ton of time sharing and creating content, but sometimes see negative results. It’s hard to not be motivated by stats, likes, comments, and general engagement in this industry, but it seems to be shifting for everyone these days. A tiny insignificant example- I created a personal Instagram account (@sargibs) that was intended for me to post whatever / whenever (you know… anything goes, sort of account), but it’s about the same size as my blog / branded account (@roomfortuesday) now. All of this to say, Emmett and I went camping in Moab a few weeks ago with our family and I posted a couple images from our adventure, only to lose ~400 followers on my personal account. I know that doesn’t matter because it’s my “fun” account, and I’m truly not offended… it’s just difficult to wrap my brain around this weird industry and figure out what content is worth people’s time, and also try to find myself and stay true to what I’m passionate about along the way. So- tell me what YOU (my trusted friends) think, what you like, what you’d like to know, and please share any and all blog or social ideas. I’m all ears and eager to get excited about something new!
Drop me a line in the comments below! In regards to the ‘Ask Me Anything’ title, even if you’re just curious about the dogs, life questions, the house / renovation, favorite products, whatever… I just want to chat, connect, and have real, genuine conversations. You guys are the best!! Here’s to the weekend, Happy Friday! xo
