Knowing When to Quit and Bringing Simplicity to My Channel
Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Making Everyday Magic. I’m Shanna, and if you’re new here, we’re a homeschooling family of four, now in our seventh year of homeschooling. I have a second-grader and a sixth-grader. Today, I want to share how I’m bringing simplicity to my channel. I often advocate for knowing when to quit. Quitting is an often undervalued skill.

Simplifying and Quitting
For a while now, I’ve been focusing on simplifying. Shanna, as I am right now, needs that simplicity. I’ve also run another channel, Suitcase Princess, for the same amount of time as this one. It’s about family travel and travel tips. While I love sharing about taking kids on trips and saving money, it hasn’t evolved into what I expected. I’ve contemplated the idea of quitting this channel multiple times over the years. Finally, I’ve decided to do just that – quit.
Instead of running two channels, I’m going to pivot. I’ll be alternating my posting schedule. For example, one week, I’ll post on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The next week, I’ll post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This will allow me to focus on this channel more effectively.
Simplifying the Content
I believe that what I want to share can be better served if I bring it together. This pivot is about making things less compartmentalized and more cohesive, both for myself and my audience. I want you to see more of the complete me, especially because I’m an informational person, and that’s the style that suits my content.
Freedom to Collaborate
This change will also give me the freedom to participate in more collaborations. Currently, I stick to my posting schedule, which makes it challenging to accommodate other opportunities. But with more flexibility, I can engage with fellow content creators and share more valuable information.
Thank you for your support, and I carry the weight of your trust. I won’t compromise that trust by sharing anything that I don’t believe in. I’ve turned down many sponsorships because I’m committed to maintaining your trust. I want you to know that I believe in the products that I share with you and always give you my real and honest thoughts.
I want you to know that this decision is the right one for me right now. If it doesn’t work or if something changes, I won’t hesitate to pivot again. Trying new things, giving them a genuine effort, and changing if necessary is essential. I’ve made this decision to make my life simpler and provide you with more valuable content.
Let me know what you think about quitting, pivoting, or the right-now-right-answer. Give me your thoughts and love.
As always, find me in the comments, on Instagram, and don’t forget to subscribe, and give this post a thumbs up. Keep coming back, and thank you for being part of this wonderful community. Your thoughts matter, and I look forward to hearing from you.
