¡Hola mis amigos!
I’ve been taking a few more steps toward the whole blog extreme makeover thing. I’m super excited and nervous at the same time. It will be a couple of months before the big unveiling but I know that it’s going to be totally worth the wait.
In the meantime, I’m in the very beginning stages of a couple of potential blog related projects. Will give more details later if it works out. Just know that I am super excited about them.
Also, I’ve been trying to come up with some new columns to rotate with my Ab Fab Friday column, which I still very much enjoy doing. I really love curating things.
This is what the rest of my blog schedule typically looks like:
Monday: Food or Life in Hawaii post
Tuesday: Tuesday Tidbits
Wednesday: Wanderlust (travel post)
Thursday: Food or Life in Hawaii post
Now here is where I need help from you, my lovely readers. What types of columns would you like to see on Fridays? Please leave your suggestions in the comments below.
I look forward to hearing from ya’ll!
