Blogiversary Day

Today marks the 2nd Anniversary/Birthday of this blog.  It's had it's ups and downs, and even though I haven't been posting very frequently as of late, I believe that my posts have gotten a lot more personal and "real" than some of my early posts.  So today, I am sharing with all of you my new goals for blogging.  I want to write and post more consistently in a manner that is true to who I am and what I believe.  I want this blog to be a place where I can share what I love about life and that it can be a positive influence amongst all the crazy that can be found on the internet machine.

So I present you with a "blog schedule" of what you can expect from me:

Monday - I'm going to start off the week with my "Five Positive Things" from the previous week.  My friend Lydia inspired me to do this and it is always a great way for me to reflect on the positives in my life (as challenging as it may be to find them on some weeks).
Tuesday - I'll spam your blog reader with my Tuesday post on anything random that I may be in the mood to write about...and I can be REALLY random. :)
Wednesday - We have a church service on Wednesday nights that our pastor likes to call a time of "refreshing" in the middle of the (sometimes long and dreadful) week.  So I'm also going to have a mid-week post discussing my faith, such as issues I'm struggling with and/or encouragement from the Word.
Thursday - Another "random post" day, or if I'm ambitious and stay motivated, I will use this day to share something I'm working on musically.
Friday - The day before the weekend, I want to share my craft inspirations or DIY tutorials to prepare you for a weekend full of crafting fun!
Saturday - Science Saturday posts will resume.  There's been a lot of awesome news in the science fields these past few months, and I miss sharing those with you.  So get ready to be educated and amazed!
Sunday - In keeping the Sabbath day, I won't typically post anything on Sunday.

This is all subject to change, and some weeks, I might not post or there will be other random posts throughout the week...but I figured since this day marks a new "blog year", I want to start blogging more intentionally and decided to give myself a guide to inspire me to be more consistent.

What do you think?  What type of content do you enjoy reading about?

Also, in celebration of my blog birthday, I am going to offer a 20% discount code for my Etsy shop!  I will be adding some new items shortly (as soon as I get some good photos!) so be sure to check them out!  Use the coupon code BLOGIVERSARY20 through the end of the month! Enjoy!


  1. I love that you know your blogiversary...I do not remember when I started blogging. Ha! You know that one of my favorite contents is your Science Saturday.

    You are quite ambitious. I need to get back to my five positives. I'm just trying to figure out how personal I want to be. I said something to Lydia a while ago about the Internet being like a street corner and what would I say loudly on a street corner filled with strangers....I'm really struggling with that. How far do I want to let total strangers walk into my psyche/life? Hmmmm. anyways, I do want to write out the positives in my life because I want to encourage others.

    OK I'll stop before this turns into blog post itself.


  2. Congrats on the Blogiversary! :D
