This week I have been pondering the identity of my blog.
When I first set our to blog, my aim was to share my thoughts and ideas about beauty and fashion (hence the blog title). I love blogging product reviews, wish lists, HAULS, OOTD’s and other beauty/fashion posts. Recently I have also had the urge to blog about other subjects that I don’t feel fit into to the frombeauty2fashion title, and this is where my pondering began!
I read many blog tip sites that keeping your blog to a specific subject is key to pleasing your audience, so how do I add blogs about other parts of my life without losing the readers that I already have for my beauty/fashions posts?
In the early stages of my obsession with reading blogs and watching Vlogs, I came across a beautiful lady named Anna on youtube who made videos on her diet and outfits for the week. Over time I became engrossed in her videos, and as her youtube channels evolved, I found my self watching and enjoying her everyday life, the birth of her child, and the hilarious antics with her husband and dogs. I noticed that to seperate their different subjects, youtubers have different channels.

I then realised that the key to expanding my posts would be create myself a sister blog. I decided to name my new blog FromHeart2Home which links to the title of my current beauty blog but can include the random posts I have been longing to write.
Having two blogs is of course going to be a bit of brain boggle, and may mean I will have slightly less posts on each than when I just had one. But this is something I really want to do, and that is what blogging is all about. As organsisation is not my strong point, and I already have a job that requires hours of thinkging and paperwork, I decided to invest in a new diary.
Check out my new beauty! This is a FiloFax bought from ebay. It is A5 sized with a birght purple case and is full of diary pages, colourful notepaper, to do lists and an address book.
One thing was missing. A blog planner. I searched the net for something to help me to arrange the many blog posts that float around in my head during the week. I discovered a site written by a lady who homeschools her chldren, and amongst her fantastic array of planning templates I found a Confession Of A Homeschooler. It really is very pretty and includes everything I need to plan my blog each week, yay!
Now, I can plan both of my blogs and hopefully those who are like me and enjoy nosing into the lives of other people, can follow and read both of them.
