Announcing the Ten Day Tandem!

Y'all remember Boho Blogtober?

Well, we've decided to do it again...but in April this time! And we're doing a slightly different, shorter version than the previous month-long marathon. That got just a little lengthy for us.
Both Hannah + I love doing this type of thing, to motivate ourselves + also to give our readers a little "blogging spree", but we are discovering that October really isn't a good time for either of us to do it. So we decided to try a different time of year, which meant that we had to come up with a different name! Cheers go to Hannah for coming up with this catchy title. "the Ten Day Tandem".
(ha-you should've heard all the other title ideas that we opted not to use. There were some crazy gems in that list! =))

And speaking of Hannah, be sure to hop on over to her blog and begin following her, if you aren't already!

This time around, I'm not announcing my blog post titles ahead of time.  I already have a lot of material that I've been working on that is saved in my drafts folder, so I will be chipping away at the drafts to bring you some exciting posts that have been in the making for a loooong time. I do promise you this-there will be:
A) Fun Posts
B) Serious Posts
C) Controversial Posts (my personal favorite!)

 However, I would be curious to know what one (or more) of your favorite posts has been that I have done lately? (say, in the past 6months)
Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know-I'd love to get an idea of what type of post you as readers are enjoying most!

Happy Saturday!

  1. I just saw on Hannah's blog that you were doing this and wondered why you hadn't posted about it! I thought I followed this blog but guess I didn't. Oops! Guess I'll be getting caught up later.:)

  4. I would really like to read about the clothing colors thing that you mentioned in one of your other posts! That would be fun to read. But really, EVERYTHING that you have posted so far I have found encouraging, uplifting and fun to read. Keep up the good work! you are such an inspiration to me. :)

  5. This is super exciting, Chels! Lets see...I love the fun posts, the serious posts, and the controversial posts! Yes, I know. I am SO helpful=)))
    Favorite posts...hmm...you are actually asking me to pick a favorite?:) I loved {Single and Satisfied} from February. I also enjoy your "life lately" posts:) And I know this was a while back, but I really appreciated the Cherish Life post back in October.
    I just realized that those 3 posts are one from each category=)
    Blessings!

  7. Yay! Can't wait to read the 10 day tandem posts! Long term reader here, and first time commenter. Just wanted to say that my favorite of posts of yours are definitely the controversial. Single+Satisfied was spot on! I know those posts are not easy to write and are published with much prayer. Thank you for taking a stand for your convictions in a culture that tries to define a woman by the relationships she is in. You are a blessing to so many people not only through your blog, but also through the life-style choices that you make and the way that you serve your family. Keep letting your light shine! The world desperately needs to see the difference that the Lord can make in one's life.
    Blessings,
    Sarah

    1. Thanks! That was the hardest post I ever wrote (as in, took a long time. I LOVED writing it) but I'm thankful if God could use it to bless people!

  9. I like all of your posts - I love to hear about the fun times you have with your cousins, the way you think about learning music from a young age, your stance on large families (so different from my ideals but interesting and thought provoking nonetheless), your ideas about being single and living at home, and your relationships with your siblings and parents. I think your wonderful sense of humour comes across in your writing, and you seem like a really fun and grounded person.

  11. Woohoo!! I'm so glad you're doing a series. I can't wait for it to start. :) And yes, I agree with the other commenters - thought-provoking and discussion-starting posts are really good. I love it when they make me think/analyze/discuss/pray through my views on a topic. Also, life news + other fun posts are always very welcome!

    Miss you girl!

  13. Dearest Chelsy...I just discovered your beautiful blog today and enjoyed my first visit so much, I wanted to tell you! I will most definitely be visiting again as it is always so inspiring to meet sisters in Christ and be encouraged by their walk with the Lord! I love how you said in your about page, "Jesus has done so much for me and it is my deepest desire to live my life fully for Him and impact souls for eternity..." That is so beautiful and it is exactly what I desire most too!
    Thank you for writing for Jesus - praying you have a sweetly blessed day!
    Much love in Christ,
    Kelly-Anne

  16. I cannot wait until the Ten Day Tandem begins!!! I would be interested in hearing about dating/courting what you/your family thinks about that. And also how you find such great bargains at thrift stores.
    Thank you for being such an awesome encouragement for girls like me!! You may never know the impact you've made.
    Blessings,

  20. This is a fabulous idea - super excited! Let's see...a couple (of many!) favorites that come to mind would be: sister road trip, the boho blogtober vlog w/hannah, cream or salt, life lately, and single + satisfied. The Q+A posts that you've done are some of my top favorites, too. :) Many blessings!
