In the Spirit of Transparency

I share my life online, oftentimes without much thought, but I have to say that this post makes me nervous.

Every month, I post a link to my Sponsorship page and say, "I have some ad spots available for next month!" And I was going to do that again today, but we're just seven days away from the road to Minnesota; and I haven't told you the plan yet.

So, the plan.

The plan is for me to finish that recipe book I may have told some of you about over the winter, the one that I was so excited about and then ran out of time and energy to work on it. I need to find something that makes it feel more like an e-book and less like a Word document. It's going to have some recipes from here, but the majority of recipes will be new ones that you've never seen, and I can't wait to share it with you.

The plan is to continue on with Cave Girl Consulting--to use my passion for Paleo and help people tackle that lifestyle change.

And the plan is for me to write every day. Not just this is what I did all weekend, look at some photos, but also the real, honest-to-goodness writing that I haven't made time for over the past six months or so. Also weekly recipes, What I Wore posts, and a YouTube channel that consists of more than just videos of me taking tequila shots.

Am I supposed to tell you this? For a while I felt like I wanted to just move and start posting more frequently and with better quality content, and you'd wake up one morning and think "Wow, this girl is cool!" But at the same time, I feel anxious every day about being self- (or, rather un-)unemployed, and I want you guys to know that I have bigger dreams than simply becoming a stay-at-home wife.

So yes, I want you to sponsor my blog if you're looking for a place to advertise. But more than that, I want to know what you think. I want to know if you think I'm trying too hard, or if I come off as insincere in some way. Because I may want to do this, but I don't want to be an idiot about it.

Thanks for hanging with me. This blog has helped me transition through so many things, and I'm hoping to lean on it even more from now on. I wouldn't be the person I am if it weren't for the people I have met by blogging--there are three girls in my wedding party who can attest to that.

This is a life that I couldn't imagine not having.
