Housekeeping

Hard to believe we're almost to the end of another week!  It's been a busy one over here, so today I've just got a few housekeeping announcements.

First, I'm super excited to be guest posting today over on My Journey of Doing!  I'm sharing my favorite eating + drinking spots around Chicago... if you're planning a trip to the Windy City any time soon, this one is for you!
Check it out here.

Another exciting announcement:  P!nky and I are bringing you a Falling for Fall linkup!  Coming Wednesday, September 23rd - the official first day of fall - link up with us and share ANYTHING about fall.  We'd love to have you!  And don't worry, there will be a few more reminders between now and then!


And lastly, I've finally gotten on board with a blogging editorial calendar.  I think it will help streamline my posts and things won't be so over the place.  I'm sure this will mostly help me, but I just thought I'd mention it so you have an idea of what to expect around these parts!  Here is what each day will mostly be devoted to:

Monday: weekend recaps
Tuesday: recipes or beauty posts
Wednesday: confessions (link up coming soon :)) or a new 'on my radar' series
Thursdays: fashion or home posts (these are finally coming back!)
Fridays: links I'm loving or Fridays Five

I'm really happy about this!  Do any of you use an editorial calendar?  I've got all my posts ready for September (planned out, not written - let's not get ahead of ourselves!) and it's a great feeling!

Let me know if there are any other types of posts you'd love to see (or ones you could do without)!

  1. OOOH I'm so excited for that confessions link up! Is that just by you or another blogger? I tried to keep up a schedule, but it seems like every week I'm off track. Do you just use an app or you just write it out for what days you'd like to write for what day?

  10. Excited for the linkup! And I feel like I've finally gotten in a routine with my blog - I switched up things for a bit, but I'm trying to share the same kinds of posts (though that could continuously change haha).

  17. I am glad you're doing a confession link up - I like doing those on Wednesdays myself & was looking for a good link up to join in :)

  18. I have a "loose" editorial calendar. Sometimes I stick to it, sometimes I just go off the path. I would like to get better about writing my posts in advance and scheduling, though. I'm excited about your fall linkup!

  25. Can't wait to join in yours and Jens link up! I have been looking for someone to come up with a confessions link up so can't wait to get involved!

  26. Love the idea of an editorial calendar...aside from the fact that I wing a lot of my posts based on what I feel like sharing for the day. Eeek! I think I'd probably be a lot less stressed if I had more a plan though.

    Can't wait for the fall link up!:)

  27. Hooray for new linkups! And, good for you for starting an editorial calendar - I think you'll be pleased with how much of a help it is!

  28. This calendar is a great idea- I attempt to plan posts, but honestly it depends on what rotation I'm doing. Like if I had all my September posts all planned out, I'd be one happy lady so... I need to get on that!!

  29. I definitely have an unofficial blog calendar in my head... and I often fail at it! Way to start the fall off organized girlie!!
