My Blogging Journey + What's Next For My Blog

I’m sharing my blogging journey & my plans for the future of my blog!

This November will mark 5 years of On The Creek Blog!

This blog originally began as a way to document our home renovation journey.  You can read the full story here, but the short of it is that we bought a foreclosure in serious need of repair & we completely renovated it from top to bottom.  It was a wild time for sure!










As we settled into our home, the blog began to evolve.  For the past 3 years, we've planted a garden on our land.  Gardening was never something I really thought of myself doing, but I actually enjoy it.  Our garden situation has also evolved through the years.  I'm actually planning our largest garden ever this year.

While I don’t share a lot of recipes anymore, I’m still active in the kitchen.  I like to try new recipes & I’m slowly building up a collection of the recipes I use all the time.

 Over the past year or so, I’ve also really gotten into furniture makeovers.  My husband helps me a lot with the assembly of my projects & I really think we’ve really found our groove when it comes to furniture repair.  Seeing things go from trash to treasure has really been something I love.

Home decor is a newer interest.  Finding my unique style has been a challenge.  Also, trying to fit random things together in an area has proven to be a difficult task for me!

As far as this blog goes, I feel like it’s been a bit hit or miss lately.  While I have all of these interests, it’s been a challenge to mesh them all together.

With the spread of the Coronavirus throughout the world & the stay at home orders in place, I’ve really had time to think about my interests & what I want to share with the world.  In these uncertain times, I really want to focus on getting back to the basics & make the best of this time at home.  Now that our disposable income isn’t guaranteed, I want to focus on budget friendly things I can do at home.  Staying safe during this time is a priority.

So…all that to say that this blog is going to be evolving a bit.  Now that I have a lot of time on my hands, I want to focus on merging my interests into a blog I love.  I want to share attainable budget friendly projects that we all can do.  I also want to make my older posts more accessible.  I want to make this blog something I’m truly proud of.

I’m looking forward to continuing to share my journey with you.  Stay safe out there & I’ll talk to you soon!
