Getting Personal

If you read, you know that my family consists of myself, my boyfriend Chris, and our girls Brooke and Holly. Seeing as I don't exactly live the "normal" life of a 23 year old, these three are my entire world and I spend nearly every waking minute with at least one of them.

With that, I'm leading to a bit of a dilemma. I've been writing this blog for some time now, and have mostly kept the content hobby oriented- food, home, beauty, etc. My hobbies are a big part of my life, but I find that when family life gets busy, I let my projects fall by the wayside. This is fine, but when it comes to blogging, I end up with no content. This is why lately I've really been considering bringing more of my personal life into my blog.

I read many blogs on a daily basis- many of them are strictly hobby based, while many of them mesh hobby and personal life. I used to enjoy blogs solely for the photos and the quick scroll, but lately I've been really taking the time to read some of the more lengthy posts because in all actuality, I learn things from these bloggers. Bloggers come from all different places, all walks of life, and have different struggles and accomplishments. I love both cases, where either I can completely identify with a blogger or learn something I didn't know. 

I still have yet to decide which parts of my personal life I will be allowing into my blog, but I think that due to the fact that this is my space, it's a good idea.

I would love to know- Did you make the conscious decision to incorporate more of your personal life into your blog? How did you go about doing it?
Further, when you read other blogs, do you enjoy this type of content, or do you scroll right past it?
