[blog] The Rut...

Since I began working part-time in December, I have felt the desire to start blogging more. It isn't a secret that I haven't maintained the blog consistently for the 4+ years that I have been writing. Needless to say, I have more time on my hands now and would like to establish a routine.

I texted with my dear, sweet college roommate this evening, Laura, who blogs over at Pretty Little House. Seriously, go check her out. She has the cutest/classiest style for the home! Anyhoo, she said I should be a fashion blogger due to my Instagram posts and Pinterest pins. I thought that was such a sweet compliment! However, I don't feel ::called:: to be solely a fashion blogger. I enjoy blogging about family life, our travels, home/diy decor, and things of the like. She then suggested I could call myself a "lifestyle" blogger because "that is a thing"! Ha! Love her.

So consider me a "lifestyle" blogger. I believe the blog name "Everyday with the Jays" creates the perfect groundwork for a lifestyle blog. However, I most definitely do NOT blog every day! In the coming week(s), I hope to establish a schedule (I'm thinking of posting MWF) with post ideas already planned week(s) in advance. Here's to hoping!
So for today, I would like to know:

Who reads this blog?
What are your stats (age/status/season of life)?
What do you enjoy reading about?

It says I have 210 followers, but I'm sure many of those don't read the blog. I follow my fave bloggers through "Bloglovin", so if you'd like to keep up with me there, here's the link.

Here are my answers:

I'm Chrissy at Everyday with the Jays
I am 28. I am married. We have no kids but are enjoying life as a twosome with two pups.
I enjoy reading about Christ, fashion, easy DIYs, thriftiness, and travel.

Do share, and let me know who reads! Expect some blog layout changes in the coming week(s) as well. Thanks Laura for giving me a push: love you boo!


  1. Jesica from Messy Jesi ;) 29 (*cough* 30 in a month...) married with one little Olivia. I love to read about people's testimonies and how they've grown and changed since then, little bit of DIY, and life :)

  2. I am loving your blog design! So classy and just pretty. It's so easy to get into a blogging rut and so hard to get out of. I think I get overwhelmed because I feel like every post needs pictures and I just flat out take too many pictures. It takes me hours to sort, edit, and upload them them to photobucket. :) But anyhow, I'm Crystal from Hall Around Texas, 34 and I read your blog! I love Lifestyle blogs and keeping up with people's daily lives.

  3. I love the colors & layout of your blog design!

    I'm Amy from keepin' up with the Smiths & I just started following your blog today! :) Thanks for checking out my blog. :) I'm 28 {will be 29 in June} & married for 5 & a half years. We have a 3 year old son, Cash & are expecting another little babe in September! I'm so looking forward to following your blog!


I read each and every comment: thank you for leaving some love!
