It’s a different kind of post today.
I need a little favor..
While I explain what’s going on, I’m going to intersperse a few exquisite gardens for you to enjoy.
I began this blog well over three years ago. After a very rusty start for the first two years, little by little, its readership has grown far larger than I could’ve ever imagined it would. And for that I’m very grateful.
You guys are the best. I’m totally enjoying all of the long-distance (and local) consults I’ve been doing and the best part is your responses back to me.
If I could, I’d just sit here all day and solve your decorating problems and write the blog. But it’s not enough to live on and it’s definitely not going to get me an office on a tropical beach with my entourage of handsome buff dudes. ;]
I’m torn, but if I’m going to fulfill any of those dreams, something needs to change with the laurel home blog.
The upshot is that I’ve decided to cut back my blogging schedule from twice a week to once a week for the time being. If I find myself with a quieter week, I’ll add back the second post, but for now you will only hear from me on Sunday.
That will free up at least 12-15 hour of time, because it’s not just the post, but the follow-up. I feel duty-bound to respond to everyone who has taken the time to write me. And don’t get me wrong. I LOVE hearing from you. Your comments mean so much to me. Some of them make me cry. The good kind of crying.
Therefore, instead of the mid-week post, I’m going to be working on some new things to make the site better. I think that you’re going to appreciate all of this as well.
- I’m also going to be putting up a better fee schedule. The fee schedule will be a guideline because each situation is unique and the fee might end up being a little more or a little less depending on your specific needs.
- This change will also allow me to work on some rockin’ interior design products. The problem there is… I love them all. But they are not for me, they are for you and I want to develop the ones that you really want. Otherwise, what’s the point?
To help facilitate some of my future endeavors, there is a very brief (only 5 items to answer multiple choice) survey below. I’ve listed a summary of five interior design products and all you need to do is rate them from 1 – 5. (very simple). There is no obligation to take it, but I would love it if you did!
The survey is completely anonymous and unspammable. (hmmm… that really should be a word). But if you don’t know what that means, it means that you won’t get any crap email. Not from me, anyway or anyone that I’m associated with. There’s nothing that irritates me more and I’m sure you too!
Thank you in advance! ugh. I just found a dumb typo on the survey after I hit send. Also, it’s 7:15 on the 12th, here’s a link that might work better for you than the embedded survey.
