Yesterday my contributor, Kimberly Dekker of Days of Dawn blog, recently revealed a makeover she did on dining room. She showed how some small changes can make a dramatic difference. One of my readers commented,
“What a perfect example to people that you don’t have to spend weeks and weeks and lots of money to present a big reveal that would intimidate half the blogosphere out of redoing a room for themselves.”
Her comment stuck with me and made me wonder if bloggers have become out of touch.
In the world of blogging, the number of followers you have on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter mean everything if you’re trying to turn your hobby in to a paycheck. As a result, the pressure to push the envelope and come up with a totally unique and creative projects is intense. As of late, I’ve seen some spectacular and almost over the top projects come out of blogosphere. Half of me is totally amazed and blown away. The other half knows of me knows I, and everyone else would NEVER attempt some of these projects in a zillion years. Not saying bloggers should play it safe when it comes to design but on the other hand are some projects totally unrealistic?
My intention for my blog has always been to bring pretty to the world and inspire people when it comes to interior design. I’ll bet 95% of design bloggers have that same intention, just said in various ways. In our quest to come up with the latest and greatest, never seen before projects I wonder if we are intimidating rather than inspiring our readers?
What are your thoughts as a blogger and/or reader of blogs?
