At the start of the year, we chatted about our goals for the year ahead. One of the main things on our list was to incorporate more video into the blog. We think it’s a great way to share our personalities a bit more, and dig a little deeper than a regular ol’ blog post.
Plus, isn’t it always crazy to watch a blogger’s video and think…”I had no idea they really sounded like that in real life?!” Ha! Sometimes we read blogs in a specific voice, and then we’re surprised when we hear them through video for the first time!
Anyways…we decided to create a video describing The DIY Playbook and the mission of our blog. Okay…that makes it sound boring. We promise it isn’t! Instead, it just offers new readers (or old ones!) a little insight into the making of the blog and our philosophy for creating a home that you love.
Give it a view!
Here’s what we said in the video, if you just want to give it a read…
Hi, I’m Bridget. And I’m Casey, and we’re the bloggers behind The DIY Playbook. We’ve been friends since we were kids and we’ve always loved creating together. When we graduated college and moved to the real world, we found ourselves using that same creativity to make our first places less generic, and more home sweet home. We decided to put our projects online to share, thinking our moms would be the only ones reading our blog. Hey Jan! Hi Pat! So in 2013, the DIY Playbook was born, and we’ve been decorating, crafting, creating, and sharing it all online ever since!
We think every home should tell a story…your story. Guests should walk into your home and learn a bit about your interests, your past, your personality, what’s important to you! Instead of filling your home with generic decor it should be filled with memories that make you happy. And that’s our main goal here on The DIY Playbook. We want to inspire you to spend some time making your home special. It doesn’t need to be difficult, and it doesn’t need to cost a ton of money. You can turn your house into a home and you can do it yourself! So grab your drill, pick up that paint brush, and join the DIY Playbook team. Because if we can do it, then you can too!
And now we want to know…what other videos do you want to see this year on the blog? Tutorials? More Q&A and get to know you type videos? We’re all ears!
Cheers to a great start to 2016!
