With the name Thriftburgher, the original intent was to focus on the thriftiness in my life. I think I've done that for a bit, especially in earlier posts, but I've also been writing about things that I've enjoyed and/or have interested me.
Some of my favorite posts from 2014:
My vintage postcard series, particularly my various Pittsburgh sets. (links to original posts in photos)
There have been a few outfits I've liked, too:
Various photo collections, my wedding series and thrifty reviews have also been highlights over the past year.
My favorite blog reads run the gamut. Some tend to focus on a spectrum of topics that interest the blogger and their personalities shine through. (A Beautiful Mess, Delightfully Tacky, The Laughing Medusa, The Dainty Squid, The Clueless Girl's Guide.) Other favorites are primarily outfits or recipes. (Midwest Muse, Room 334, Melodic Thrifty & Chic, Food in Jars, So Hungry I Could Blog) And then there's more nostalgic, news-based throwback blogs I adore as well. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's The Digs, NPRchives)
I have other favorites too, but I read so many that I can't possibly list them all. :)
I don't know, I'm just thinking about how my perspective has changed on this whole blogging concept since I started last year. How does my blog appear to other people?
I would like to have a spectrum like focus, but with a full-time job it's difficult to maintain. After all, my life isn't all that exciting. Even my last few thrift store trips have been total fails. I'd either leave empty handed or buy things for other people.
But I'm hopeful and can kick my ass back into gear. My tentative refocusing goals this year: Perhaps a Q&A series, keep up with outfit posts, but nail down a harder emphasis on all things thrifty. Not necessarily having listicles about thrifting, but being better about documenting my journey to various flea markets, garage sales, estate sales, etc.
Any suggestions? :D
