The Weekly Write-Up: So Over Water

Posted 30 August, 2015 in Weekly Write-Ups / 1 Comment

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off.

It’s My Life

Last week…didn’t go as planned. I thought I’d be super busy with the CEO visiting, and spending other time working on the review-a-thon and the ecourse I’m writing.

Well, sick happened. Spend most of the later half of the week and weekend in the bathroom (TMI? Too bad – you only have to hear about it, not deal with it 😛 ) and / or at the doctor’s office.

I’m pretty sure I’ve consumed more water in the past 5 days than I have in my other 24 and 10/12 years. I automatically cringe at the sight of a Smart water bottle right now, solely because that’s the brand bottle that I happen to have lying around to refill. Sorry, Smart water.

While I was lying in bed and Netflixing New Girl, I did get a little work done. Specifically, I finally said “goodbye” to the striped background, and worked on a few new freebies for you all.

Be a Better Blogger:

For this month’s Be a Better Blogger challenge, pick 3 small tasks that you’ve been procrastinating. That can be anything from updating your review archives (one of my goals) to spending a few hours writing reviews in advance or scheduling social media posts. Pick 3 things you want to do but haven’t yet, and do them.

The Skimm

Do you skimm?

TheSkimm is a daily newsletter (every weekday) that sends you a summary of the headlines from the day before. Actually, it’s better. Because the writing is funny, sarcastic, witty, and full of fun culture references. All while making me a more informed citizen. After all, why read the news when I can read a book? 😛
