This is a weekly post I do to highlight blogs or bloggers who have inspired me in some way during this week – another car on my imagination train!
This week’s inspiration focuses mainly on prompts, suggestions of things to write about and do. The first I have already explained, the post that inspired the 36/36 challenge by Lady Kell of Kincavel. I’ve already determined my own things to do this year (wrote about here) and I look forward to getting to them! Wanna join me? It’s easy – make your own list and then tell me in your comments so I can cheer you on and get inspired by you!
1. I also found this prompt for a clean house. I long for a clean and organized house. I feel like I’m not an adult until I achieve this. This post breaks down every little thing that may need to be attended to, along with suggestions and safety tips. Maybe I can grow up soon.
2. For some prompts, I have seen some bloggers do an A-Z challenge. Not to be outdone, and ever-seeking inspiration for new things to do and write about, I found an A-Z list of things to do in St. Louis over the summer and I think I might do it. I have lived in/around St. Louis most of my life and I know it like I know myself. It is, seriously, a great town. There’s some shitty stuff: it’s pretty segregated, racially and economically, and a little myopic. You can play “Seven Degrees of fill-in-the-blank.” Most of us are connected and know each other somehow. And we have a shitty airport. But, we’ve got gorgeous parks, a lot of free things to do in the summer, enough people to have different interesting neighborhoods, but not enough to have shitty traffic. It’s a gem in this U.S. “flyover country.”
Also, speaking of promoting my city, I created a board of Pinterest highlighting my favorite places in St. Louis over the summer. If your interested in taking a trip to the Lou or learn abo0ut a new place, check it out, and lemme know if you have any questions! I’ll meet you for a beer!
3. Back to the inspiration, and speaking of Pinterest, I have frequently been consulting this post on how I can use Pinterest effectively with this blog. I’m consulting this a lot as I’m trying to broaden the scope of this blog!
What do you guys think? Was there anything YOU read this week that was awesome?
