• Just a Master of Blog Changes Doing What She Does Best

    As my long-time followers may know, I’m really good about making changes to The Lily Cafe. I suppose you could say it’s kind of my thing. I was hoping my more recent changes would stick. The focus on reading, writing, baking, and motherhood as well as the shift to focusing on the magical parts of life. But this blog changes as I change. It’s a true reflection of me. Now, this new change isn’t going to mean I’m adding new interests. Neither am I taking anything away. Instead, my whole approach to my blog is changing, born of frustration and passion. I’ve been considering doing freelance editing for the last…

    The Lily Cafe Digest #4

    My usual schedule is 6+1, 6 weeks of posts followed by a 1 week blogging break. This time around, I’ve only posted for the past 4 weeks and will now be taking a month long break. July is an important month for my family, so I decided it was best spent taking a break, though I will be sprucing up some old posts and finally getting around to creating some Pinterest graphics. You can also find me on Instagram, where I post about books. Looking Back Reader Well, June was a popular month for publication! I didn’t expect to be writing and posting so many reviews. Then again, I’m a…

  • The Lily Cafe Digest #3 - catch up on what's been posting on the blog!

    The Lily Cafe Digest, No. 3

    This year, I’m doing a 6+1 blogging schedule of 6 weeks blogging followed by a one week break. Since it’s time for another Digest, it’s also time for another blogging break. Enjoy, and thank you so much for following! A Look Back Reader I’m experiencing a bit of a blogging shift. I’ve always been a huge reader, but, most of the time, I’m so far buried in a book that I often forget to rave about or destroy them in a review. That seems to be changing, though. I’m reviewing more books now and find I really enjoy talking about them. So much so that I’m in the process of…

  • Announcement

    The end of July was tough for me and my whole family and came at a time when I was starting to question my blogging journey. Now, I don’t intend on stopping since I really enjoy it, but I  plan on going back to work and starting lots of neat things professionally within the next year, which will take time away from blogging. I see the lack of time and see it would be easier to stop. Apparently, I don’t like making things easy for myself. But I have a plan! Sort of. Announcement 1: If you’ve been following for awhile, you might know I’ve been working with branding The…

  • The Lily Cafe is a…Lifestyle Blog?

    When I created the Twitter account for the Cafe, my husband eagerly took over from this poor overwhelmed lady. He found a lifestyle blogger with a ton of followers and started talking about how he wanted to make my blog that big. O…kay. Most of the, okay every one I can think of, lifestyle blogs have something to do with fashion, fitness, and beauty. I wear clothes that I’ve had since high school. Working out involves running after the kids and keeping them alive. I wash my hair and brush it once a day. And I brush my teeth! Does that count for beauty? So I started reading. I’m a…

  • New Site Address

    If you try to reach The Lily Cafe at katpersephone.wordpress.com, I’m sorry to say it will no longer work. Why it was even katpersephone in the first place eludes me, but that’s a story for another time. With the changes we are making to the Cafe, I decided it was time for the name and address to actually match. So our new address is now thelilycafe.wordpress.com. We hope to see you there!
