Hey, guys! I thought I’d just drop by and take a break from scheduling my beauty, books, and k-related posts and get a little personal.
First, a quick update. Life is good. Marriage planning is good and expensive. We’re almost done! I just scheduled a trial with my make-up artist on the 3rd of October to see if she’s the one. I hope she is the one because the price is right and of course, I like her work. Most of the work she’s posted online are leaning towards the natural look. I like this very much since we’re getting married in the morning and there’s no need for smoky or sultry eyes. I just want flawless looking skin and tamed hair. I really hope she’s the one.
We’ve also just finished buying the dresses for the entourage, picked the fabric and color for our mother’s gowns, finalized talks with our florist, and realized we might need to hire an event stylist. So, I guess we’re really not yet done. Instead, we’re slowly realizing the missing pieces of this big, fat, expensive wedding.
I sound like a negative bride, lol. I’m not, I promise.
I am very excited for this wedding. It’s just that I wish my boyfriend and I would have talked a few more times before booking any suppliers. I wish we looked and considered everything before getting pressured by suppliers telling us that we have to book ASAP! I wish we aren’t going to spend a majority of our savings on a single event. I’ve already come to terms with what we’re doing. I’ve already accepted it. I just want it to be over because I can’t wait to start a new part of my life with him.
Second, a blog update. I’ll be truthful. I want this site to earn money. That’s why I joined Nuffnang and tried affiliate marketing with StyleKorean. Unfortunately, so far I’ve earned nothing.
Guys, why aren’t you helping me??? I’ve really stuck with my plan of increasing traffic by commenting on other people’s blogs and hoping that somehow they go back to my blog. I don’t know if it’s working because lately, my stats are just steady. It’s neither increasing nor decreasing. The views are just there. I guess I should still be thankful but I want to push myself and this blog to see just how far it can go. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not begging you to view my blog regularly nor am I pleading with you to use my affiliate links or click on some ads. I just decided to really work hard and try to monetize this site. It’s a 2017 Blog Goal and with less than a 100 days until 2018, I’m going HAM.
I’ve also come up with a concrete blogging schedule. Expect a post only on weekdays, when most people are online. Two of those could be about anything (beauty, K-related, books, etc) while the other one will be a bit personal (maybe a let’s have coffee post or a personal update like this). I decided to only post on weekdays because I have this personal rule of no computers during the weekends. I spend so much time in front of this thing I need to go out and live more during the weekends (you should too).
With all that said, I’d like to ask your help! I’d really appreciate any sort of feedback. I’d like to know what aspect of my blog or writing could need some improvement or what your favorite posts are. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! You can comment on this post or reach out through my Contact Me page.
Lastly, an overall assessment of my mental state. These days, I just want to get married and move out of our house. Since my dad died, things have changed a lot and I don’t like how it’s changing. I’d like to say much of these feelings are caused by my mom. I love her, I really do which is why I won’t elaborate any further. I just wish she finds it within her to be stronger. I firmly believe He took my dad away from us to strengthen us. He wouldn’t take him away just for fun. There’s got to be a bigger picture.
