Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Blog Talk (and a Laundry Soap Recipe)

Soooo, I’ve been thinking about the blog lately.

Let’s discuss.

Working full time and staying busy with other activities sometimes makes it hard to come up with lots of fun content.

At the same time, I love this little space and want to continue daily posts during the week.

Soooo it got me thinking.

I want to have good content and don’t want to feel rushed or pressured to come up with things just to make sure space is filled on a given day.

I started thinking about things I liked best about some of my favorite blogs, and it really came down to their transparency. Their openness to share a glimpse of their life.

Right now, I share recaps on Mondays, often something food related Tuesdays, workout stuff on Wednesdays, things I’m loving or random fun stuff on Thursdays, and then something scripture based on Fridays.

I like this content structure, but feel like it needs a little...tweaking.

Here’s where the blogging pros whip out a survey for you to complete on things you’d like to see, but let’s be real here, I’m not going to make all seven of you do that.

I would, however, totally welcome thoughts on what aspects make up your favorite blogs, as well as some things you would like to see more/less of.

Let her fly!

Leave a comment in the share the love section in this post, and I will be so very thankful for your input as I start to consider some changes.

In fact, the rest of this week I will be gently reminding you, so you’ve been warned. smile

Oh- and let’s not addressed the ancient feel of the blog just yet.

It was made in 2006 (!!!) and definitely needs to be revamped, but unfortunately that’s just not on the docket right now. Definitely down the road though.

Thank you in advance. I know you won’t let me down (insert guilt trip here <----- ).

As a token of my appreciation, I wanted to share the laundry soap recipe below and tell you to DO.IT.

Seriously, it was the easiest 10 minutes ever, and this stuff should last until I'm 83.

Here's what you need (and most stores place these thinks altogether so it's easily accessible):
-2 cups, Borax
-2 cups, Washing soda
-2 bars Fels-Naptha
-Downy Unstoppables as desired (optional but highly recommended!)

Laundry makin'!

Here’s what you do:
-Grate the bar soap into small pieces.

Can we talk about this?

Everyone I talked to said this was so.incredibly.difficult.

It’s not.

Get your cheese grater, and get to it. You’ll be done in five minutes.

-Mix all ingredients together & store.

Use 2-3 tablespoons per load depending on size.

Boom. That’s it. That easy. This recipe should make close to 100 loads.

So there you have it.

Blog stuff,

laundry soap,

what more do you need?

I’m sending my next load to your house. Just saying.
