Hi and welcome to Daily Katy! I’m an almost-30-year-old New Englander sharing highlights from my everyday life, from the recipes I’m trying out in my kitchen and outfits I’m wearing, to itineraries from my latest travels and new products I’m trying out.

For some background on how this all started… After a crazy busy year of wedding planning while working full-time during the day and taking classes toward my master’s degree at night, I started this blog for a few different reasons. The main reason was that I had always wanted to learn photography {fun fact: I almost went to college for it} and it seemed like a great way to learn and practice, while also documenting life. I also work with bloggers as part of my full-time job and thought it would help me better understand the ever-changing blogging world and how best to work with bloggers. So one day on a whim, I made up a blog name, bought a domain and found someone to create a design for me on Etsy. And here I am, more than 2 years later.

When I first started Daily Katy, I was literally posting about anything that came to mind, oftentimes the recipes I was making for dinner and reviews or roundups of products I was using or wanting. Over time, I’ve shifted the core topics I cover because I ultimately realized that the easiest (and most fun) things to photograph and write about were those that were already happening within my life. And wasn’t that the whole reason I started this blog to begin with – to document my daily life? For example, I never imagined that I’d want to post photos of myself in my everyday outfits, but my mom and I have had fun taking them when we’re together, so why not?

It took me a long time to share Daily Katy with anyone besides my husband – and I blame my type-A perfectionism and not realizing that this would turn into something I would actually stick with for that. Because my full-time job is my priority and life just gets busy sometimes, there are months when I post less frequently on here than I’d like to, but you can always find me on social media on a more regular basis. Regardless of how often I’m posting or who is reading, starting a blog has been such a fun experience that I would highly recommend to anyone. I love looking back at old posts and seeing how much I’ve learned and which posts my readers are responding best to.

Thanks again for reading – and please don’t hesitate to reach out with feedback, requests, questions, or to collaborate at katy@dailykaty.com.

XO,

Katy
