I have realized that by not having a general schedule, I have fallen away from blogging and I miss it so much. I have decided that I am going to try to return to blogging by reinstating a schedule. There will still be times when I post off schedule, but my goal is to post at least once a day according to schedule, with bonus posts added in. On Sundays, I may not always post as I try to reserve that day for family and church activities. Here is my plan for future posts, hopefully starting tomorrow:
Monday: Making it Better Monday- posts sharing ways to improve some aspect of life; may include posts on greener living, finances, relationships, organization, health, etc
Tuesday: Time for Others Tuesday- posts will be about a person, organization, business, etc other than myself; this will be an effort to get to know and understand people and organizations around the world, some may be businesses or business owners, others may not
Wednesday: We Did It Wednesday- posts about crafts and recipes that we have recently made
Thursday: Things I Love Thursday- seasonally appropriate shopping guides where the items are chosen simply because I like them; items may have an affiliate link, but that will not play a part in whether or not I choose to share the item
Friday: Found on the Web Friday- I will share giveaways and blog posts from other blogs that I have come across during the week.
Saturday: School Saturday- posts where I share what we did this past week for school, I have a pre-schooler, 1st grader, 2nd grader, 7th grader, and 8th grader this year
Sunday: Spiritual Sunday- posts about those things I find uplifting
Bonus posts will include product and book reviews, giveaways, and whatever else I feel inspired to blog about. I love my children, but this is my outlet for me to use my "adult" voice and I miss being able to do it. It is so easy for parents, especially those who stay home with young children, to lose themselves and have limited opportunities to talk to other adults. Blogging has helped me to stay sane over the past 6 years by giving me that opportunity. I am so thankful to have this opportunity and look forward to returning to it. Thank you to all of you who have stuck by me through it all and to those who just pop in here and there and those of you who are here for the first time. I am grateful for all of you.
