It’s no secret that I design my blog myself. I love digital scrapbooking, so it is a welcome challenge. I also can’t afford to pay someone to do it for me. I have always said that I will if I ever decide to blog for a living.
I have also changed direction a few times, and maybe that makes it hard to gain readership. But it has taken me a while to really share everything that I love. Some things I just don’t like people to know (at first).
I started blogging on Blogger with a crafty theme in mind. Then one day realized I needed a better camera if I was going to take great quality photos of items I wanted to sale on Etsy. So the story of blogging about my pictures began. I started following all the other photo blogs and started following along in challenges and really opened up into photography. Which really took me out of a funk I had been in for years. And also took me away from crafting (for the time being).
I started baking a few years ago. And photographing it. Still photography. I loved it. I always take the extra food to work and they love it too. Then I got into digital scrapbooking when I wasn’t taking as many new pictures. So I was going into a whole other world but still sharing pictures that I had taken, years before even. Then I bought my house and started renovating it. This is where I decided to open up the focus on my blog into my whole DIY life. I have been sharing projects at many other blogs but have not gotten any comments in over a year. Don’t get much traffic at all actually. (I think I have made too many additions in too short of time.)
At some point I moved over to WordPress and started calling myself Sanukipity. I love my made up name, the mix of serendipity and Sanuk. But I have decided that it may appear weird to others without coming to my blog and looking into what it means. Today, I am going back to Lili’s View. This way it encompasses all of me. I can still use Sanukipity in my watermarks on my pictures. I am also trying to make my blog look more simplistic. Draw more focus to the photos I share. Tell me, could the header be less noisy?
I am glad you joined me today. I always love to hear your thoughts and suggestions. Have a great day.

You sound similar to me. I started on a writing group, then from there to Blogger, and WordPress. First shared writing, poetry, and have always love photography so that also. I’ve been trying to learn digital scrapbooking layouts for couple years, and have decided to share some. Enjoy seeing what you have shared.
