SURPRISE, I have rebranded! Welcome to Everyday Laura! I’m so excited this day is finally here! This is something that’s been in the works for quite a while now. Let me be completely honest, when I first started my blog I had no idea what I was doing. I started House on the Corner a little over a year ago for no other reason but to share my passion of home remodeling and decorating.
Starting a blog began as an exciting adventure, but after a few months I quickly realized I had backed myself into a corner – no pun intended haha! I love life and all of its ups and downs, and I wanted to start sharing more of my passions on the blog, including food, beauty, clothing, and travel. As I posted more about these topics on the blog, House on the Corner felt increasingly wrong and I couldn’t let it go anymore. I remember when I hit my 1 year blog anniversary, I made no mention of it because I felt incredibly frustrated with the blog direction and my mistakes, including choosing the wrong name. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life it’s that if something bothers you FIX IT. Whether it’s big or small don’t accept something that bothers you.
I decided to go with Everyday Laura because it represents me and my life everyday. So here’s my first piece of advice for any newbie wanting to start a blog. Choose a name that represents you well, and one that can grow with you, and hey… if you mess up like I did, you can just rebrand! By the way… I’ve also bought the domain name “Old and Fabulous” so you can look forward to my next rebrand in about 30 years – ha!
I feel like with this new blog I have complete creative control to just be me and I love it! So who is Everyday Laura? I am a wife and mother. I obsessively love to decorate and tweak my home. I love drinking wine and laughing with my husband, Brian. I love traveling, exploring, and binging on Mexican food. I love shopping and finding pretty things from home to closet, and I love sharing it all with you.
I want my blog to be a source of information, fun, and entertainment for women. If you’re stressed out or just bored I hope you can grab a drink, poke around the blog, and find something interesting. I want a blog that represents women of all ages not just women in my age demographic. I am 40 years old, and although I’m 82% ok with that I don’t feel like I have to market myself this way. I don’t like how age sometimes divides women. I think young or old we can all learn from each other. I follow women on Instagram from their 20’s to their 60’s on up and I love and find inspiration from them all.
If you’ve been with me for a while I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride and are as excited as I am about this new chapter. If you’re new I’m so happy you’re here and look forward to getting to know you as we move along. I’m continually looking for ways to make my blog better, so I hope you like my new look and find my site easier to navigate.
Let’s encourage each other to be the best we can be, and together let’s MAKE LIFE SPARKLE.
