Notice anything different around here? Hint: look up.

Sunshine State of Mind is now The Sunshine Diary! 

 I liked the name Sunshine State of Mind, but I wasn't crazy about it long term, plus we don't have to be in a sunshine state of mind anymore since we are actually in the sunshine state! The Sunshine Diary seemed more fitting since this blog will be a diary of our life in the sunshine!

I'm also going to be getting serious about blogging.  I watched Dom take his favorite hobby, scuba diving, and keep bringing it to the next level.  Now he's in training to be a dive master!  He takes what he loves and does whatever it takes to be the best.  I don't mean to say I'm ever going to be the best blogger, but he inspired me to take what I love and be the very best I can be at it!  I just finished reading Blog Inc. and loved it.  It has so much information about growing your blog successfully, whether it's for fun or as a business.  I can't recommend the book enough (plus it's only about $10)!  It really got me ready to take my blog to the next level.  Now I just have to wait until I have the funds to sponsor everyone I want ;). I also started using a new system to plan out and organize my posts so I don't have a million ideas flying around and then sit in front of my computer and go blank!

Even more? I made The Sunshine Diary a Facebook page! Can I just say how weird it is to have a page with no "likes"? So please, if you have a moment go "like" it!  If your blog as a page please let me know and I will absolutely "like" it too! I don't even think my mom has liked mine's that new.

As of tonight, there will be lots of social media and link changes!
So here is the new info:

New address: (old blog link will redirect to this one)
Twitter: My handle will be changing from RobinJay17 to @SunshineDiary_.  If you're already following you don't have to change anything!
Instagram: I'll be changing that to @thesunshinediary 
Facebook page: The Sunshine Diary!
New email:
