    Oh I’m so excited for you. I remember a conversation we had almost a year ago and I can tell how much more focused you are now. I can’t wait to see what you do with the new site.

    One of the things you do best is bring people and ideas together so please keep up the GSD and My City features. I think what you’ve done there has been great and I look forward to more.

    Keep up the great/hard work girl! xo

    Good for you Girl. You are so kick ass, its an inspiration for me to get my business-minded side more together.

    I actually really love the way the blog is now. I feel like it’s one of the most thoughtful blogs I read, even when the posts are short! Food is actually something that doesn’t interest me, simply because I think about it all day at my job, ha. But the other categories you suggested all sound wonderful. I won’t lie, the top two reasons I read your blog are for 1. Fashion and 2. Interiors. GSD is probably 3rd. But the reason why I keep coming back is because I can relate to and appreciate your taste. I don’t know if this comment was helpful, but I just wanted to chime in and let you know that I already love the blog as it is.

    First of all, I just want you to know how PROUD I am of you! Second, I am all for aesthetic updates (generally), but I think the content of your blog is really really good. A great mix of things. I can’t think of anything I would change.

  5. Georgine

    Wow, what a mature way to approach the business of blogging (when your blog-ness gets scary big). I think this is blazing a new trail for women who stress about handling it all- I look forward to admiring your work to come!!! Congratulations XO

    I love LOVE your GSD feature. Trying to find a balance between work and personal life is a juggling act for us all. It’s nice to see how other ladies get it done.

  7. Samantha Green

    it sounds like there are some very exciting thigs on their way and i look forward to seeing what you have been working hard on.

    i really wanted to apply to be a contributor but then realised that i already have a lot on my plate — maybe next time 🙂 xx

    I enjoy the GSD series.

    I can’t wait to see what happens next. I love seeing bloggers take the plunge and make their dreams a reality. I love seeing the behind the scenes coverage of other bloggers, as well as your interviews of people around DC. I would love to see more contributors show their favorite spots around their own cities. Anything mixing art, interiors, and fashion is a big favorite. But I would say I would love to see some videos available online for those who can’t make it to your seminars, I know I would be more than willing to pay 

    This is a fantastic post! I totally understand the feeling of wanting to do it all, and sometimes, that’s just not practical, or feasible, or healthy. 🙂


    You’re a star, Meg. Thanks so much for sharing all of this and I am really looking forward to seeing what you do as you grow both personally and professionally 🙂


  12. Lulu and Georgia

    Meg, this sounds amazing. Things may not seem old, but you’re right, they need to be new. We’re so excited to see what you unveil. Posts like these are just one of the reasons why you’re bookmarked! 🙂

  13. Grace - Stripes and Sequins

    I am so very excited for you, Meg! I cannot wait for the new site – it is going to be amazing.

    Thanks for sharing the business side of blogging. I love when people share the ‘behind the scenes’ of their careers so that others can learn from them. Your blog is great but who is to say it couldn’t be better? You have to go with your gut and what feels right to you.

  15. Lindsay

    Can’t wait to see what you come up with, Meg! I know it will be thoughtfully done and inspirational as always! xx

  16. Brighton

    loved reading this post. and yes! I read every single word 🙂 I know for a fact that what you have come up with for the rebranding and redesign of your site and all that comes along with it will be amazing. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together!

  17. Azrakun

    I think some blogs get so ‘professional,’ they almost somehow loose their personal touch.

    I love your art posts and fashion (i am a new follower).

    Good luck; it all seems so exciting…

  18. Megan Gilger

    So excited for you! It was awesome chatting today. Keep rocking it sister.

    Congratulations, you inspire me. To answer your question: business organization, GSD, how to’s etc. Love to read about the business related ups and downs of what you do.

  24. Sarah

    Yay, so exciting and thank you for sharing this with us. I love your GSD. The ladies you choose are interesting and inspirational to me (including yourself). I’m currently in the process of setting up my own business so these kinds of topics I love. Plus all the content you also currently do.

    Its so interesting to learn about other’s people’s career choices and life style. I think you’re doing a really fantastic job, keep up the great work! Cant wait to see your next steps 🙂

  26. Hannah Maple

    SO proud of you, and MORE than excited for you. And oh how I’ve been in that very same boat, fighting so hard to find something that can be a sustaining business, but also allow me to utilize my talents and passions. So it’s incredibly nice and refreshing to hear the same from someone I admire and respect 🙂 Best of luck! You’re bound to be a great success. And I may very well need those consulting skills you’ve honed so well.
