I wanted to take a moment to give a status report of what all is going on, and will be going on, with His Girl Friday.
As you might have noticed, I’ve been playing around with my images lately, particularly my header. I’m trying to figure out my “look.” I want to give you a blog that is not just fun to read, but fun to look at as well. I wanna look good for ya, dear reader. Thanks for your patience as I try new graphics, fonts, filters, etc.
I promise I’ll settle down and pick a cohesive look one of these days. I just haven’t quite hit on “the one” yet.
Also, you might have noticed that I don’t run ads on my blog, and I never plan to. Sure, I’d love to start generating some revenue so I could pay for my weekly coffee or even pay for the hosting of this site, but the idea of generating an income by clogging my blog with ads is pretty deplorable to me. Other people do it and that’s great, but it’s just not my jam. I write what I write because I believe in my words. I believe in this little thing we have going, and if that means I have to keep paying for things out of pocket or I never make any money off of this, then so be it. This is a labor of love.
Also, nothing makes me more frustrated than opening a blog that never loads properly because they are running so many ads. Ugh. That’s just the worst. I don’t want to do that to you. I want this to be the best possible experience for you.
I love sharing my thoughts and opinions on not just what I’m doing, but also on places I’ve gone (restaurants, cities, activities, etc) and products I’ve used. You’ll be seeing a few posts in the coming months where I’ve teamed up with someone else to write a review. It might be of a product I’ve used, a restaurant I’ve experienced, or a place I’ve visited.
I’ll share my honest thoughts and feelings on whatever I’m reviewing, and when I can, even offer a promo code so that if you want to try it for yourself, you’ll be able to do so at a discount. I’ll only review things that are relevant to my life and therefore, hopefully relevant to you as my reader. I’m not looking to market to you, I’m looking to offer you an opinion from someone you trust on issues and products that matter to me and to you.
Hopefully I’ve become a voice you can trust, so I want to continue to offer you quality reading on a variety of subjects. I love sharing my little corner of the world with you, reader, and I hope that you’ll continue to come back time and time again to share in my journey with me.
I love doing what I do. You keep me sane, dear reader, you really do. Sure, most nights I don’t start blogging till 11 PM because that’s when everyone, including my husband, is in bed. So forgive the inevitable typos, and turn a blind eye to the times I write things that don’t make sense. Know that I do this for me, yes, but mostly I do it for you. I so hope you find encouragement, inspiration, and a breath of fresh air here in this blog. It’s such a joy writing for you and to you. Thanks for all the love you send my way. Here’s to a beautiful blogging friendship.
Lots of love from your friendly blogger buddy,
His Girl Friday
