Ugh... It's Monday

Do you ever feel like some Mondays are more "Monday-esque" than others. I feel like this has been happening more often now that The Lizzie Bennett Diaries are over. Which is a great reflection of my life right there guys. A YouTube series is what determines how my day will go. 

However, today I feel is more of a Monday than others. I woke up randomly in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep. I got up earlier than usual and was STILL late for leading chapel at the high school. I then forgot my keys in the high school gym and one of the teachers had to run out to the parking lot to give them to me. When I got back to the office I had to put together ANOTHER chapel at the last minute for the pre-school kids. Also, everyone just seems to be having a "case of the Mondays" in our office.
Everything is turning out fine, and it will pass as all Mondays do. 

A few quick things before you get too depressed about Monday.

1) The blog Story of My Life is hosting Blog Every Day in May! I really want to try and blog more regularly and several of my blog friends are participating. I feel like this will be a good test for me to see what is realistic for me and a regular blogging schedule. So, starting Wednesday May 1 you can look for a new post from me EVERY DAY! I know you're excited. I even have a ton of drafts scheduled all the way through May 13 for each day at 8am. It's gonna be exciting, yo. She has prompts for everyday which I may or may not use. I'll probably use the ones I like and others for when I'm stuck for a topic. But I'll switch things up and write on my usual topics when they come to my mind. Whatever my "usual" topics are. Which brings me to my next point.

2) I don't have a nich for my blog. Usually this doesn't bother me, but lately it has. I've never liked being labeled in a certain "genre" for this blog. Yet, it's been bothering me that I don't have a focus. I just blog whatever I feel like as though this were a diary. None of you want to read that. I feel like this blog is just like every other one out there, and that's boring. Who wants me to be boring? Not me!

Therefore, I'm taking suggestions. Are there certain trends you've noticed that are on my blog that I haven't? Anything particular that you enjoy reading about the most? Suggestions of where to go from here?

3) I'm linking up with a few other blogs today! First, it's Mingle Monday with Life of Meg. She hosts this every week and it's a great way to promote your blog and find others.

And there you have it. My Monday. I hope everyone else's is more interesting than mine, and I'll see you on Wednesday to kick off Blog Everyday May!


  1. Hey! I am stopping by from Monday Mingle! I just hate Mondays, I too woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep. All I can say is thank goodness for coffee!! Have a great day:)

    1. Yeah coffee! I don't know what I'd do without it. :)

  2. For figuring out your niche, I'd recommend taking stock of what you most enjoy writing about. I was in the same boat for a little bit, and so I started focusing on some of the things I enjoy writing about most. The two big topics I've got are faith and writing, but I've recently decided to add some cultural thoughts in as well (which tend to tie in with faith) and possibly relationships, too. That may not help a ton, but that's what I'd recommend. Think about two-four topics that make you you, that you love to talk about, that you have a lot to share about, and focus on those. :)

    1. That's what I'm trying to do. I think maybe my big thing is figuring out HOW to say what I want to say. I feel like I'm just writing about the same things everyone else is and in the same way. How do I make my blog stand out? Or maybe it's both. Originality and trying to figure out what I want to write about. Sigh.

  3. Mondays are the worst! My day was so aggravating...I hope it's not a prediction for the rest of the week. I think a good focus for your blog is how life relates to books you've read. I know how much you love to read, so maybe it would be fun for you to give a book review with a personal spin. Just an idea at 10:20PM, lol.

    1. Ooooo.... that could be fun!

      Also - my Monday decided to leak into Tuesday. Already this morning I locked myself out of my apartment AND I somehow made my computer screen at work turn sideways.


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
