Well, I have to say: this has been a really great week. Despite not getting everything crossed off my to-do list just yet, I've been humming along at a nice clip. I've just been happy. I've felt like I could take on the world. I've reverted back into my blogging rhythm of the glory days. I'm excited to share & I'm excited to be inspired by what others share. And once this post is up, I'll be headed out to conquer my to-do list for the day, which I know will make me feel amazing. So, here's to Friday productivity. 

This weekend has been dubbed "relaxation weekend" for us here at the C Residence. We plan to do some laundry, watch some movies, vacuum the floors, & hit some golf balls. I'm certain that you could also go ahead & throw in some breakfasts out as well, because that is always on the docket around these parts. Since we will have visitors from this coming Tuesday, until after the Fourth of July, we need to take this time to be lazy & get our abode in tip-top shape. We are greatly looking forward to having our guests, & this weekend is the perfect time to prepare!

beach reading:
- Kristin, over at Challenge Accepted, shared Regina's How to Launch a Blog on a Budget, which I found very enlightening, since I'm currently working on ramping up my blogging efforts.
- As you may have noticed, I've started working with affiliate links, & I found Regina's 10 Non-icky Ways to Make Money Blogging equally enlightening.
- I adore posts about others' daily routines & schedules, & I really enjoyed this one from The College Prepster, & this one even moreso.

Want to join me in blogging every day in June? The more the merrier. I even made a button to celebrate the occasion. Feel free to use it in your blog sidebar or in the body of your posts. Let's encourage one another to get back to our blogging roots. Happy blogging!

I love all the suggested blog post reads you've listed. I've saved the first two to Pocket for referencing later (where I save all my blog education posts), and I've found a new blog to follow out of The College Prepster! I've never heard of that blog, but it seems like something I'll enjoy reading regularly. I'm glad you are having such a great start to a productive day!

I love Regina's savvy advice and sassy sense of humor - she's made it a whole lot easier for me to get my mind around what I want to do with my blog! Checking out College Prepster, too - I love seeing how people organize their days!

I really like Regina's tone, too. And she's just so informative. Those articles were really helpful to me! I love College Prepster's routine/scheduling posts - they are my favorite!

I need to start keeping a log of all the blog education posts I've been meaning to read. I always want to read them, but forget about them.

Thanks for the link to the post about making money blogging. That's something that I've been contemplating lately.

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.

smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
