The Start of a New Year


Lunch table / saladThe start of a new year is a good time to re-think old habits and ways of doing things. I began this blog at the beginning of last year and made it my goal to post every Monday morning for one whole year. This goal was intended to help build up a catalog of posts which would cover a wide range of “eclectic” topics. I accomplished my goal and am proud of this accomplishment.

However, in evaluating my work, I realized that there were some weeks that I didn’t have much to say. I found myself in a frenzy on Sunday night to write something just to meet my self-imposed goal. Because this blog is intended to be inspirational, and perhaps occasionally even aspirational, I believe this is best accomplished when true inspiration strikes me.

So this year I’ve decided that I will continue to post regularly, but not necessarily weekly. I want posts to be of interest to my readers and to contain information and photos that I am consistently proud of. Realizing that inspiration doesn’t always strike in a consistent or predictable manner, I hope my readers will appreciate this effort to improve the quality of Eclectic Girl Lifestyle Designs.Several Assorted Color Tags

  1. I have enjoyed reading your blog every week over the past year! You are inspiring and I am amazed at your creativity! Looking forward to reading your blogs in 2018!

  2. I have been a fan of your blog since the beginning. I particularly like your ideas on entertaining and your research on various food products. It was through your blog I discovered 100% Greek Kalamata Extra Virgin Olive Oil at Trader Joe’s. I love it! A great improvement over what I had been using. Keep up the good work!

  3. 11:25 pm. No time to chat. Your first photo on this blog made me so hungry I’m going to attack the refrigerator…oh, what mischief I’m about to get into. Keep up the good work.

  4. I applaud your decision — for all the good reasons stated. Anything that cuts down on stress is good. I look forward to reading your future blogs. Have I been more “creative” as a result? Alas,no. BUT I like to think they have made me more observant … and, shall we say, open to the possibilities!
