Where I’ve Been… Let’s Get Real

Hello everyone. It’s been awhile. If you have been keeping an eye on my social media, well, at all then you know I haven’t been around much. I haven’t been posting on here, I have barely been posting on Instagram, and Twitter has pretty much just not been being used at all.

So where have I been? What are my plans for the future? How am I doing?

Let’s discuss all of that in this post.

Okay, so let’s start at the beginning. Where have I been?

It’s been a bit over 2 weeks since I’ve posted any blog posts on here and I do apologize for that. I just kind of fell off the face of the Earth when it came to this.

I haven’t been anywhere really, just not here. I just stopped posting. I have seemingly lost all sense of motivation when it comes to posting on here. I don’t know what to write or have the motivation to write anything. I’m hoping that kind of “forcing” it will help with that.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not forcing it in the sense that I don’t want to do this anymore. I love running my blog and my Instagram. Even my YouTube. But like I said, I’ve been lacking motivation to do so.

I think a lot of it has to do with my lack of motivation/schedule. I tend to just wake up, struggle to do that so I don’t get up until later in the day. Then I have a couple hours where I have to focus on my son’s schooling stuff and being a mom/wife. Then I have to get my son ready for bed. And any free time, I just want to watch tv and not do any work.

So, since I woke up early today (wayyyy too early), I decided that I should at least start trying.

That all being said, let’s move into what I plan for the future.

Since I’m going to be just getting back into posting again, I think I’m going to try doing “theme” days again. I will have different posts that I normally do that will fit into these themes, but they are broad enough that they can encompass everything I want to talk about that’s really big in my life right now.

Because reading isn’t as much a part of like right this second. I haven’t read a book in so long that I don’t even remember the last time I tried. Not to say I haven’t been reading subtitles or Webtoons, though.

Anyway, let’s talk about these theme days! They are as follows, starting with Monday.

Motivation Monday

These are going to be days when I post something really lifestyle related, more or less. Sometimes it may just be a quote. Sometimes it may be a list of things that motivate me or just a discussion of something that is on my mind.

I figure this is a good thing to kind of start the week with so that 1. you all can have some sort of motivation starting out the week and 2. if I don’t have anything, then I can just share a quote. Aka. This is a good one for me to be lazy with if I’m not feeling it after the weekend.

Update Tuesday

This is specifically for my weekly updates. I have liked doing them on Tuesdays and that’s going to stick. If you’re new and don’t know what these are, I think a weekly update was one of my last posts.

But it’s pretty much where I wrap up what I’ve read and watched throughout the week and also let you know what I plan to read and watch the coming week.

It will always be from Monday through Sunday that these are for. So anything I finish the Monday of that week will be on the following week’s wrap up.

*Just a side note, this week’s Weekly Update will just be talking about the plans for next week since I haven’t been tracking this past week’s stuff.*

Watching Wednesday

This will be my day to talk about the stuff I’m watching, want to watch, or recommend. I’ll be posting lists, reviews, recommendations, and what I want to watch.

This is going to be a mix of English stuff and other languages. Anime will be in here as well.

To Do Thursday

This is going to be a list day mainly. Also a day that I’ll likely skip if I don’t have any ideas for it. So this will be lists of books I want to read or things I may want to do over a season. Stuff like that.

This one was kind of a random day for me. I wasn’t sure what to put here but I definitely wanted a day that I’d easily be able to put a TBR on.

Fiction Friday

This will be all book stuff. Manga, novels, audiobooks, etc. I may talk about a non-fiction every once in a while, but technicalities.

This could be for wrap ups, hauls, reading goal check ins, recommendations, reviews, or anything else book related.

Switch Saturday

So I wanted to keep the whole “matching beginning letters” theme going. So this is focusing on video games. Most of them will be for the Nintendo Switch, but every once in a while, I may talk about Sims.

Long story short, the Switch and the computer are the two best methods of gaming for my eyes, so that’s what I’ll be focusing on. I will mostly talk about games like Mario, Animal Crossing, Sims, Pokemon, and some other games that I’ll be trying out and reviewing.

Swap Sunday

I won’t lie. I’m not 100% sure what I wanted this to be. I think I wanted it to be something along the lines of posting whatever I wanted, if I wanted. So if I wanted to do another post that fit into another category, I can. But if I didn’t want to post at all, I wouldn’t.

So, I think I’ve decided that I’m going to share my post plan on my weekly update posts as a way to hold myself accountable and so you all can mark your calendars if there’s something you would like to see. I also would like to remember to keep the list updated so when I do post it, there can be a link added. But that’s on me.

Anyway, I think that’s really it for this post. I hope that I can get back into loving the stuff I’m putting out. I have lost touch with not only the community, but also myself. I need to search myself to find that connection again and I think finding my connection with what I love to do is that first step in doing so.

So thank you all so much for your continued support and I do hope you all stick around. Let me know any blog post requests you want based on the days I have shared and also let me know what I can do to improve my blog.

I appreciate all of the love and support and just want to thank you all for being amazing and standing by me while I try to figure this all out again.

Needless to say, I’m going to try to get a couple blog posts written and scheduled today so I can be ahead so I can have off days if I feel like I need them without getting behind on posts and feeling bad about it (even though I know I shouldn’t).

I’ll see you all tomorrow with my weekly update (aka my goals for this week).

  1. Fantastic Ideas for the themed days of the week. I am sure those may help you think of more blog posts to write. Remember if you ever need help with motivation do not hesitate to ask. Have a good day! 🙂
