Five on Friday | A Survey

I just checked and I have written more than 215 Five on Friday posts since starting this series back in 2013. TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN (although it’s probably more than that as it took me awhile to start properly categorizing my posts way back in the day)! Clearly, I needed some lessons in formatting (and photography) back then too. Anyway, in case you didn’t know, this weekly post started as a link-up with some of my favorite blogger friends. Link-ups used to be SO cool. Maybe they still are? I don’t know! Anyway, after all of these years I have continued to publish this post weekly, while my co-hosts have all moved on for one reason or another! For the most part, I’ve always enjoyed this post because it’s my place to put all of the miscellaneous things from my week that don’t necessarily need an entirely separate post. But to be completely honest, it’s a lot more time consuming than you would think and I’m in the process of evaluating how I want to spend my time in this space moving forward.

Anyway, so I have a question. Well, two questions.

1. Do you still enjoy these posts?

Or is it time for me to throw in the towel? I’m considering either scaling these back to maybe 1-2 times a month, or moving on completely. 

2. If you do like these posts, which topics are your favorites?

  • Recipes
  • Tidbits of life
  • Amazon finds
  • Books/podcasts
  • Kid stuff
  • Fashion (work clothes, kid clothes, affordable clothes, investment pieces, accessories, casual looks, etc.)
  • Products (grocery items, home items, beauty, etc.)
  • Other (you tell me!)

And as always, THANK YOU for reading along. I am so grateful for YOU!

Hi Christina I LOVE Five on Friday and the link up was the reason I started blogging 6 years ago!!! I still write the occasional Five on Friday myself because I live the simple concept and it’s why I started. I always check if I can link up! If you wanted to run a linky again I’d be so happy to do it with you. I am across the pond though 🇬🇧
