My Mission Statement

You know the horrible thing about giving advice…at one point or another you may be asked to show how you applied it to yourself. Months ago while prepping and thinking about the BlogHer ROYO (You can read the transcript here. Warning many mistakes on who said what.) I wrote that one of the first things to do when you’re trying to reclaim your purpose in blogging, and in life for that matter, is to write a mission statement. I explained what I did to come up with mine but I never shared mine…why? Because I never took that last step of turning a handful of blubbering sentences into ONE succinct statement that summed up everything I want my blog to be. Then one of my fellow speakers suggested we share our own mission statements during the session. Um, okay.

Funny thing is, at that point I’d already done all the hard work so it was easy for me to write that last point and well this is what I came up with:
My blog will advocate the benefits of a creative home, self-reliance, recycling, and responsible consumerism. – Erin
So is this what I’m doing? Kinda, sometimes, maybe, but obviously I’m not writing about what I want to be nearly as much as I should. So now that I’m not anxious about speaking at a conference, homeschool is up and running, and my normally intense nesting instinct hasn’t kicked in, I’m trying to refocus my energy on this little side project of mine. I’ve already begun planning more crafts, more commentary, reviews, and even a few giveaways in an effort to get back on track and I’m going to be using the rest of this week to get more of my calendar filled in and inbox cleaned out.

In the mean time…have you followed me on Instagram?

What about Bloglovin?

I’ve been tweeting it up on Twitter and liking lots on Facebook so don’t forget to come see me there too!

  1. I think that's a very powerful mission statement and I like it! I think you do pretty well at working on those things. I might take the Instagram plunge . . .


Thank you for leaving a comment, it really means a lot to me!
