The Final One

Guys! We did it! I can't believe we made it to the end of this ridiculous awesome challenge to blog everyday in July.

Today is the last day of July, and the last day of this challenge (unless you're vlogging with us tomorrow for the bonus accent day (which you obviously should)). I'd like to thank each and every one of you you individually, but who are we kidding - ain't nobody got time fo dat. But seriously, thanks to everyone who participated this month - whether it was every day, most days, some days, or even just one day - we appreciate it. Also, a HUGE thanks to two of my blog best friends - Allie and Juliette for doing this crazy challenge with me.

Anyway, lets get on with it. Blogging is hard (#twss - there better be a lot of these today). I'm just going to share a couple... a few... a handful of the reasons why I think that blogging is difficult HARD.

    Things to talk about - this, right here, is exactly why I've been struggling with blogging this year. I used to share all kinds of thoughts about weight loss and working out, or awful dating stories, embarrassing situations I'd get myself into frequently... but some of these things don't apply to me anymore, and I get stuck on WHAT THE HECK to blog about. I don't want to ramble e'ryday... but look, I'm doing that right now anyway. Ha.

    Life - since I started dating Justin, I've had a lot less time for blogging. I'm not the type of blogger who can write from work (and even if I could, it has been SO BUSY this year) and have to make time to blog the night before my posts go live. It can be a struggle, but if I can do it EVERY day for the month of July, I'm going to do my best to go back to blogging 3-4x per week from now on.

    I'm boring - I really think that my life is boring most of the time. I think of weird/awkward/should-be-embarrassing things that happen to me, and then I forget about it and end up blogging about all the things and stuff that nobody wants to read about. #struggle

    I'm lazy - sometimes I'm just tired, and I'd rather come home from work and crawl into bed and take a 15 minute power nap than draft a blog post. Or sometimes I want to just browse Pinterest and look at all the things I'll never own/bake/wear in my entire life, and play pretend and make believe for like 2 um 3 uhh 4... okay 5+ hours. Don't you judge me.

Point #4 was accurate, I was too lazy to even come up with a 5th reason that blogging is hard. The struggle is real, friends.

Anyway, despite the hardness (ha #twss) of blogging everyday in July, I'm so happy that I stuck with it and that a lot of you pretty people stuck with it too. Since today is the last "official" day of blogging everyday in July, one of the lovely ladies, Allie @ Reckless has created a link up for everyone to post their social media links so we can all stalk each other keep in touch for the rest of our lives (just kidding, I promise she's not that creepy)... you can find the link up here.


Even though we don't like rules, every fun thing in life has them. So here are a few of ours:

1. Please only link up a post if it matches with the day's topic.
2. Make sure you either grab the button code and put it in the HTML portion of your post, or link back to at least one of the hosts.
3. Go make some friends. Comments=Love

I'm so glad you had fun BLOWing everyday in July (first sentence, muahahahaha)

Also. You are not boring. Your parents have falling down in the middle of the street and you burnt your elbow while straightening your hair. TALENTED my friend.

Love you big time

You are absolutely not boring. And I would never judge you for looking at Pinterest for 5+ hours, mostly because I’d be sitting next to you commenting on all the pins. Love you long time.

Allie said...
