New Year's Resolutions for Love is Home

I know that everyone has been blogging about their New Year's resolutions {as have I}, but I realized that I haven't really posted a lot about where I want to take this little blog in 2011. I'm sure most of you have seen my list of 101 Things to do, and I'm sure you've noticed that I have a few goals on there about this blog.

I started Love Is Home in 2010, and I never would have imagined that I would ever get 35 followers. That's crazy to me! But it's keeping me motivated to keep this thing going. So, with you 35 followers, I wanted to share with you what I'm thinking of for 2011.

*I want to host a giveaway*

Giveaways used to seem to me to be only for those big blogs with thousands of followers, but I've realized that I can do it too! I'm just now researching the best ways to do it {like how to get products}, and I think I might start with something that I make myself. I'm thinking one of the pretty pillows from this post from last week. Would any of you be interested???

*I want to feature a wedding*

I love weddings. And I would love to feature someone's wedding. So, if you had a beautiful wedding, and have some beautiful pictures to show for it, I want to put them up! Email me if you're interested: joelle.duff@gmail.com

*I want to host a {insert cute adjective here} Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday, etc.*

I don't even know what they are called, but I'm sure you've seen them and participated. Mingle Mondays. Virtual Coffee. Saturdays Around the World. What do you all think? Would you come post your links on my little blog?

*I want to do some "What I'm Wearing" posts*

I mean, of course, if you're actually interested in what I'm wearing...

*And I want to know what you want to read!*

Leave me comments! Email me! I want to know what you are all interested in. Fashion? Budget shopping? More recipes? My little apartment? Decorating in general? I want to make sure that this blog is about all of you. Because without you, it wouldn't be here.

If you have any advice for me and my little blog, please, please, *please*, let me know! I am open to ideas and I know I have so much more to learn.

Anyway, I hope you all have a beautiful day, and I look forward to hearing what you have to say!

xoxo,

Hi! Visiting from Mingle Monday! I love the goals for your blog - CSN Stores do a TON of giveaways/product reviews, so that might be an option! I'm excited to look through your past posts and see your wedding pictures - I kept a wedding blog while I was engaged (http://soontobemrsf.blogspot.com) and started my new blog after I got married (almost 7 months ago!) to talk more about life as a newlywed, but I still LOVE weddings! I'm a new follower! :)

Oh, PS - I just love the quote in your blog header! I have it in a frame in our living room. :)
