The Sunday Post #21


http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/the-sunday-post-meme

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

This week it was back to work for me. After three weeks, it had definitely been a long time since I had been at work and I was looking forward to getting back in my ‘normal’ routine. Funny, how fast you get back in to the working-life rhythm.
Next to working 5 dayshifts, our evenings were pretty busy checking out things for our future wedding. I love checking out all those Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and wedding sites pictures. There is just so much inspiration everywhere. Love it!!

Blogging wise I had a good week. Monday I posted a ‘Help Needed:Wednesday’s Favorites’ post which definitely got some nice feedback. And on Thursday I got a pretty productive day with scheduling posts for the upcoming weeks and writing some reviews I still needed to write after my vacation. I also started in a new book, and although I would have liked to have read more.. I’m still pretty happy with my progress since it definitely takes some energy to get back to work and look for wedding stuff. Next week will probably be a better reading week for me!

So this week was pretty much quiet. Not a lot of new stuff to tell you guys about.

How was your week? Did you like what you read this week?

  1. Good luck with your Wednesday feature! And don't give up too soon- I know from experience that sometimes features we really like don't get a lot of views, and often people don't know about them. Hopefully this will bring some visibility to it if Sunday Posters see it.

    Have a great week. :)

  2. It's funny isn't it, how it can feel so strange returning to work after a break, but within an hour or two it's like you never left!!!

  3. Ah, wedding planning. I was absolutely obsessed with Pinterest when I was planning ours. xD It's addicting! Also, glad you were still able to stay productive with your blog! I feel like I've been falling behind. Whoops. Hope you have a great week.

  4. I have a feature similar to your Wednesday feature (though I do mine about once a month) and it definitely didn't get as many views as my other posts (I added a giveaway this time so it is my most viewed post--figures!). But I wouldn't focus on views. If you have fun writing it, keep on keeping on!

    I hope you enjoyed Me Before You because I finished it this week and I am OBSESSED with it (both the book and the movie).

    Have a great week!

    1. I'm definitely starting to realize I shouldn't look at those views so much. It will make things much easier for me.
      Me Before You was amazing.. I'm going to see the movie tomorrow. Can't wait!
      Have a great week and happy reading ;)

  5. It is funny how quickly we get back into routine after a vacation. 3 weeks is definitely a long time but I bet it felt good to get back to normal. Good luck with the wedding stuff buying and the planning! There's so much to do. Have a great week!

  8. Haha people always joke about having pinboards for weddings even when they're not engaged, but I've never thought about how seriously helpful it really must be when someone is actually planning a wedding! That's gotta be exciting for you :-)

    1. It's definitely very helpful! Especially since I really don't know much about weddings. And since I'm getting married in less than a year.. I definitely need some info. LOL!!
      Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! ;)

  9. Wedding planning can be so much fun. :-) I am glad you had a good blogging week. I did too, surprisingly. I am not terribly ahead, but I did some planning and got some skeleton posts in to make things easier down the road. Now to keep up the momentum so I don't fall behind! I hope you have a great week, Maureen!
