Happy Aloha Friday! I don’t know why, but people don’t just say happy Friday here. It is clearly “Happy Aloha Friday.” So I’m just gonna go with it 🙂
I know I said a while ago I wasn’t that into blogging about my every day life, but lately all I want to write are “lifey” posts. I’m really finding joy and balance in being able to talk about my life through my blog in this time of transition.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you…
…that I need to update the photo for these posts because it still says my old blog name on it! Making the switch to a new blog was not easy but also not quite as hard as I thought either. There are still little random things that need to be changed though.
…that we have lived in this hotel for 40 DAYS now. I am so entirely over it and Waikiki as a whole. It was all really cool for the first few weeks. I don’t have a car and can only walk places though, so I’ve seen it ALL. Waikiki beach is also actually really small and so so overcrowded. So while I do have the option to go to the beach every day, it’s only been getting more crowded lately with everyone getting out of school/it being summer and all the vacationers. I also just really want a kitchen and stop eating TV dinners *insert crying laughing emoji here*
…that it rained almost all day yesterday and I was so seriously depressed (mostly because we had already planned to go to the beach but couldn’t). Hawaii is extremely spoiled with their weather and if it rains for even a day or two, you honestly hear to many people talking about it like it was the end of the world. We like our sunshine.
…that even though it was raining, I still wanted an ice cream.
Yay for Haagen-dazs chocolate chip cookie dough! And yes, the little munchkin got her fair share 😉
…that I have about a bajillion blog topics that I’ve either already written or am planning to write in my drafts and I don’t know if or when to publish them. I am like idea crazy right now. I started the new blog to hopefully reign in some of my ideas and start focusing on what content I am creating more instead of just throwing out content, but that’s so much harder to put into practice than it sounds!
I put some ideas down on paper and realize my blogging goals right now are to blog at least three times a week, but I would really like to up to four because I seem to get so much more exposure/comments/etc. any time I post more often. I also want to focus on more food posts, fashion, and motherhood posts. Sound good? Anything you’re dying for me to blog about? Sometimes I never know if I’m blogging about the right topics, not that there’s a right way to do it.
…that I know I have been the worst blogger ever lately because I have literally made no time to READ blogs. I’M SORRY. Between trying to create my own content and then doing blog redesign stuff for people, I feel like I’m on my computer ALL. THE. TIME. And I hate it. I’m hoping to be more intentional with how I use my time and be more efficient and actually carve out blog reading time. I’m also trying to use Blog Lovin’ again even though I’ve never liked a blog reader.
…that I did change my Twitter handle, in case you ever Tweet me? @Melissainthemaking was too long (sadness) so I am now @MintheMaking.
I’m ready for the weekend now! We are planning on going to the Honolulu Zoo and going to a new-to-us beach. Have a great one!
Questions for You:
- What’s something you’re totally not making time for lately? Why?
- What’s the last ice cream flavor you had?
