I love the monthly Currently.. so much fun!
Loving.... the fabric and color choices I found for the redo of my upstairs bedroom.
I'll post pictures when I get it all done!
Thinking... about grad work. Honestly, I'm thinking "Why, oh why, did I decide to go back?" I finished my Ed.S. in 2011, and going back for an Add-On, but believe me when I say this coursework is kicking my butt! Think 12 hour days (minimum) GLUED to the computer. Good times. I have 18 assignments to complete in ONE week so we can leave for the beach & I won't have to do too much work down there. How sad is it that I am SO excited to put this thing away & paint. I must need a break! HA!
Wanting... a few more months of summer. At least 2. Grad school winds up on July 27th, and I go back on the 31st. I could really use a little bit of summer between that so enjoy, but I shouldn't complain. I mean, I chose it, right. AND we're leaving for the beach in ONE WEEK!! YAY! I'm also wanting good weather at the beach...that's not too much to ask right?! :)
Needing... to get my sleep schedule back on track. I'm a night owl, alllllll the way. I do my best work late at night, and when I get going, I can't stop. So, it's been 4 a.m bed times,and 11 a.m wake ups, and I've GOT to get back on a normal schedule. Those 5:30 mornings are going to come around way too soon! :)
Tips, Tricks or Hints... I am not a blogging expert, nor do I claim to be. Some things I've learned along the way , though, are...
Be YOU - show some personality & let everyone get to know you. Farley suggests showing more of you in front of the camera, and I really need to do that. I'm much more comfortable BEHIND the camera, but she has a great point. Your blog is about YOU, so show it :)
Get OUT there - Blog stalk & leave some bloggy love along the way. Let people know you are reading their blogs, and you like what they have to say. Comment on blogs you love, and if someone comments on yours, try to reply back when you can. It's hard, but choose a few to say something back to. Just my opinion, of course :)
Say Something - I really LOVE reading blogs that are about stuff....great ideas, funny things that have happened, pictures of great finds or activities, but (and this is not meant to be ugly at ALL), I tend to skip over blogs that are ALWAYS JUST about someone's TpT store or items they're selling.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE seeing everyone's products and it's YOUR blog, so do what you want, but throw some content out there...show your product in action.... blog and talk to your readers instead of just advertising. Please, please show your products ( I know I do), but don't make your blog just about that. Again, just my opinion :)
So, that's it for me. Head on over to Farley's & link up!! :)
