|The Sparkle Queen|
Believe it or not, this August will mark the one year anniversary of my blog. When I started Sparkly Sharp and Fabulous, my original intent was to primarily share tutorials of my latest creations and projects. As I’ve continued developing and posting, I have really enjoyed including other types of content on my site. I’ve been doing more Nail Art lately instead of more “Project Projects”. I’ve loved sharing my thoughts and opinions on some of my favorite shows like Project Runway and Project Accessory. I’ve also been creating and adding items regularly to my Etsy shop, finding piles of inspiration on Pinterest, and sharing some of my favorite finds on Facebook with you!
The idea of rebranding had actually been festering in the back of my brain for a good month or so now. You may have noticed even in May, that there weren’t nearly as many posts as usual. Partially because I was focusing on making some great stuff for my Etsy store, but mostly because I was trying to decide what direction I really wanted to go. I was on the fence on what direction I really wanted to go. Should I focus on nail art, food recipes, or maybe just keep it diy projects? Do you want to know what helped me make up my mind? Pinterest. Yeah, that same Pinterest that is almost overwhelming with the sheer amount of ideas and inspiration it has.
I had been getting so much positive feedback and comment from people loving my pins, my style, all of my various boards that I had put together. I never started my Pinterest account (or any of my sites) so piles of people would follow me. I just wanted a place to pin the things I saw online, and loved! It was such a fantastic feeling knowing that so many people loved the same stuff that I do.
Having said all that, I suppose one could argue it was a combination all of my fantastic followers here, on Facebook, and on Pinterest that really inspired me to make the change. From here on out, I am not going to be a “beauty blog” or a “crafty blog” or a “tip blog” only. The Sparkle Queen is going to be one big sparkly blog, full of all of the ideas and inspiration I find, the nail art I make, the projects I try, and the opinions I have to share. It is going to be a little bit of everything, because I love a little bit of everything, and simply can’t be tied down to just one genre!
I sincerely thank each and every one of you who have supported me thus far, and look forward to sharing more projects and posts with you in the future! As always, if there is anything in particular you would like to see more of, do not hesitate to let me know! Leave a comment or post on Facebook, and I’ll do what I can to make it happen!
