#2: Everything is Changing

Want the good news or the “omg” news first? Good news? You got it.

I’m going to be starting work again.

That’s all I’m going to say for now since I haven’t had my first day back yet.. I’m still a little nervous about how I’ll react being that I haven’t worked in two years. However, given that I have time to write.. keep an eye out for a post about my first week back at work on August 14th!

Waiting for the “omg” news, right?

For the month of August, I’m thinking about doing a complete blog overhaul. This is where I need your input!

I really want to add more menu tabs and separate my beauty, lifestyle, and personal posts (just to make it more appealing to find what you want to read). I also wanted to maybe try out writing opinion posts? I wrote for a few organizations during the primaries here in the US, but I’ve never integrated my social or political opinions into this blog. Any thoughts?

In terms of my blog, I also have a ton of posts scheduled (but very few drafted, as I’m writing this). But I wanted to know what you’d love to see more of. Since I’ll be working, I’ll have more wiggle room with trying out new products and writing more lifestyle posts (since I can afford to go places now). Along those lines kinda I’d also love to know what changes you’d personally like to see here (like pictures in every post, maybe? that type of thing).

I blog for me, but I also blog for you. I want to make a concerted effort to get to know you (my reader(s)) and what you look for in your reading material. This should be enjoyable for all parties involved, know what I mean?

Let me know your thoughts/feelings/questions/concerns/suggestions,etc. below!

Until next time,

♥Char.

Marriage Happenings #5

Hi everyone! If you’re new here and don’t necessarily know what this post is about, please check out my first post of this series here.

Much like the last few months, I don’t think I have much to write this time around. However, I’ll gladly give you what I can. I hope you enjoy! ♥


Him: Come in here; I have something to show you.
Me: Are you gonna surprise me?
Him, slyly: Maybe…
Me: You better not have your dick out.

 

WARNING: GRAPHIC
Me: *opening applesauce for a snack*
Him: So, I discovered that if you sandblast the toilet with shit, it keeps it clean!
-He then goes into detail about his atrocious BM earlier that morning-
Me: I just wanted to eat my applesauce…

 

Me, with a ring pop: Propose to me again.
Him: Booty booty booty rockin everywhere.
Me: Jacob oh my god seriously say something nice.
Him: If you were a dinosaur you’d be an awesome-saurous-rex and its not because your arms are short.
Me: Say something nice that doesn’t have to do with my butt or me being a dinosaur.

 

Me, teaching him French: Qu’est-ce que ce? *points to foot*
Me: Hint..The English turned it into a word that means “a person walking on the street.”
Him: Hooker?
Me, dying laughing at this point: YIELD TO HOOKERS IN THE CROSSWALK OH MY GOD.


That’s all I have for this month, so I hope it’s enough to keep you going for another little while! If you’re staying up to date with me on social, you’d know that there have been quite a lot of changes for me lately (which explains my untimeliness), but I’m working hard to get back on a schedule!

Until next time,

Last Week of Social Media Month

Hi everyone! Onto the last part of #SocialMediaMonth! ♥

Since I’m pretty late with posting this, this last week will be a bit of a  banger. 

For the rest of the week, I’ll be doing comments, likes, and shares on all social media platforms. I’ll also be doing follow for follow on WordPress and BlogLovin’.

As always, I’ll still be super active on Twitter, as well as my Facebook Group (link: U.S. Blogosphere). What does that mean for you? Increased visibility!

Share your links below (or on my blog’s facebook page) for follows/comments/shares/RTs and I’ll gladly oblige! Just let me know which favor you’d like in your comment ♥

Once again, you have no obligation other than just leaving your links for me to interact with. Some reciprocation would be nice (just for you to help me get the word out about #SocialMediaMonth), but it’s not required. ♥

Feel free to tweet @ForgedOpulence any time! 

Until next time,

♥Char.

U. S. Blogosphere

Hi everyone! I’ve seen a lot of twitter pods happening lately, so I created one specifically for US Bloggers. It’s so damn hard to find each other! 

Then I thought, “Why stop there?” So I also created a brand new (active) Facebook group! It’s called U. S. Blogosphere and I’d love for you to join! 

P. S. If you want in on the twitter pod just for some fun conversation, get ahold of me on twitter @ForgedOpulence 🙂 

Until next time,

Char.
