Hello my loves,
We’re going old school.
Back when I first started this blog I used to post 3 times a week, usually on a Monday, Thursday and Saturday, and then around 5 / 6 months ago (maybe less I can’t remember I’m getting old) I took it down to 2 posts a week and just posted on a Monday and Thursday instead.
I have a fat ton of blogging awards I need to post that are literally almost 2 years old. I used to post them whenever I’d receive them but then I ended up receiving so many that I couldn’t keep up with them, got overwhelmed because I felt like all I’d ever be posting would be blogging awards and so I stopped posting them altogether and now they’re just sitting miserably in drafts waiting for me to look at them again. I’ve felt awful ever since. People were kind enough to nominate me and then I got overwhelmed because of how many I was getting and so I stopped posting them altogether and now I need to…rectify the situation.
I’m saying this so you all know how incapable I am of keeping up with anything. Period. I need to get the guilt off my chest. I even have a section of my blog dedicated to blogging awards and it hasn’t been touched since March 2018 which was the last time I posted one. I’m going to hell.
Anyway, back to the point – after today I’m hopefully going to start posting blogging awards every Saturday so I can get through them all and finally complete them, and once I’ve done that and gotten through them all I’ll go back to my regular posting schedule of twice a week on Monday and Thursdays.
Do you care? Is it that big of a deal? No. But as we all know, I have anxiety, Karen. This is how my brain works.
Anyway, here’s my Sunshine Blogger Awards numbers 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 – there was originally 14 here but the links are so old half of them don’t work anymore !! That’s literally how old these posts are. I’m sorry.
