Blogging Challenge – Day 31: The Finale

Blogging Challenge – Day 31: The Finale

Ahh I can’t believe this blogging challenge has come to an end, guys! 😭

I had so much fun doing it; I met so many new people, and I got to learn more about all of you through it, too! I will definitely do another one in the future … I’m thinking about maybe a fall challenge. I love talking about all things fall! 😍🍂🍁

So, I wanted the last day of my posting about the challenge to be a little finale post, not the last, self-promotional prompt it had me do yesterday, lol. I’m going to talk about a few things relating to this challenge. If you’re interested, keep on reading!

Also, just so you guys know, I’m going to be off WordPress most of the day, as I have some different things I will be working on. I’ll do my best to respond to comments today, but it might be tomorrow. 💕

Enjoy!!

The May Blogging Challenge

Why I Loved This Challenge:

  • It taught me soooo much more about myself, as well as all the bloggers who participated in the comments! Isn’t it crazy how we can learn more about ourselves when prompted to do so? When we list what makes us happy, or think through our blogging goals, or what our favorite foods are … you’d think I’d already know that about myself, but it was cool to see it all written down!
  • It taught me to do a better job with blog post planning. Hahaha, I will admit that this was the hard way to learn this lesson, but it needed to be done. Don’t wait ’til the last minute to work on posts; have things ready well beforehand, when you can. However, don’t pressure yourself to write more posts than you’re capable of. #BlogComfortably
  • It gave me the chance to blog every day for a whole month! This was the best part of all. I met so many new people, got to put up a lot of awesome content, and was able to blog for 30 consecutive days!! What!! It was awesome.

A Message to My Fellow Challenge Buddies:

Cheila and Angela both decided to do this challenge right along with me, which was such an exciting experience! I had no idea that anyone else would want to join me, so it was such a nice surprise. Girls, I loved reading your interpretations of the prompts, as well as getting to learn more about you! If we ever get the chance to do something like this again, I would absolutely love to. ❤

If you guys haven’t visited their blogs before, please do!! They both blog daily, and they have a whole variety of different posts across their blogs. 🙂

My Top 5 Favorite Prompts from The Challenge:

Thank you sooo much for following along on this challenge! It was a great experience. ❤

Blogging Challenge – Day 30: Where Else You Can Find Me Online

Blogging Challenge – Day 30: Where Else You Can Find Me Online

For the very last prompt of this challenge (I’m doing the finale tomorrow, as May has 31 days, not thirty haha), I am going to give you guys links to where else you can find me online. I’m not in very many places online anymore, haha, at least not actively, but this can still be a helpful resource for anyone who’d like to follow me elsewhere!

You can read about what this challenge is here. And make sure to check out Cheila’s and Angela’s posts for today, too – we’re all doing the challenge together!

Where Else You Can Find Me Online

YouTube. I mainly watch others’ videos on this account lol, but I also have some photo editing tutorials up, as well as a few gaming videos that I did with my brother, Joshua!

Twitter. I’ve had this account for maybe a year and a half, but I only just got back to posting (erm, excuse me – tweeting) on it! I like linking to [most of] my recent posts shortly after publishing them, as well as finding GIFs that go along with how I’m feeling currently, haha!

Pinterest. I’ve had various accounts on this awesome website/app over the years. On my current account, I love pinning new recipes to try, inspirational quotes, funny memes/jokes/roasts, missionary quotes/photos, and beautiful photography. #dreamin

I can be reached through all three of these platforms, as well as right here on my blog! I love meeting new people, and I’m always up for following back on all websites. Another way you can contact me is on my Contact page (haha), or directly through my email: dreamingofguatemala@yahoo.com !

Thanks for reading, guys!

Where else are YOU online?

Blogging Challenge – Day 29: My Favorite Movies

Blogging Challenge – Day 29: My Favorite Movies

Hi, guys! I hope you’re all having a wonderful  Memorial Day weekend, and that your week has gotten off to a great start. 🙂

For the last and final time, I’m changing up the day’s prompt. That is because I’m combining the last two of the challenge (‘my favorite social media sites’ and ‘where else you can find me online’) into the last prompt for the challenge, which I’ll be posting tomorrow.

For today, I’ll be talking about my favorite movies!

You can read about what this challenge is here. And make sure to check out Cheila’s and Angela’s posts for today, too – we’re all doing the challenge together!

My Favorite Movies

First of all, you guys should know that I absolutely love comedy movies!! Rom coms, especially. I’m not one for anything else, really; fantasy/paranormal usually frightens me too much lol, romances are too emotional, true stories are a bit too sentimental for me … ahaha I’ll stop here before I offend someone. There are awesome movies that I’ve seen from all sorts of different movie genres, and there’s not a thing wrong with the movies I didn’t like; they just honestly weren’t for me!

Below, I’ll share with you some of my all-time, the-first-to-come-to-mind favorite movies. Make sure to let me know if you love any of these, too!

Waking Ned Devine. It’s a delightful story about a small village in Ireland called Tullymoore (ah or however it’s spelled) where one of the residents win the lottery … but the main characters can’t figure out who. I love the whole cast (save for the villain character haha), the setting, the plot, the humor … there is very little that I dislike about this movie! I’ve watched it so many times; I really don’t know what I’d do without it.

27 Dresses. It’s about a wedding planner who would love to have a wedding of her own one day … but with a man that is already taken. When she has to plan this long-time crush’s wedding, and the bride-to-be is someone she never would have expected, things become chaotic very quickly! I love the whole cast in this movie, the humor is great, and the plot is definitely gripping. ❤ I love getting to see Katherine Heigl and James Marsden in these roles!

Mad Money. When three woman who have it badly off one way or another find themselves working at the same bank, and all three dealing with retired money going to the shredder … they all get a brilliant (albeit illegal and felonious) idea into their heads. Hahaha the focus of this movie has such awful morals, but it is absolutely hilarious! I love Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah, and Katie Holmes in these roles.

The Holiday. When two heartbroken women decide to trade houses for the Christmas holiday, they end up each falling for someone while there … two different people that have always been in the lives of those two women. I love the settings, the plot, the music, the wardrobe (I’m serious. while watching, just pay attention to what everyone’s wearing. So cozy!), and the two relationships that come about over the course of the movie. They’re sooo sweet and I’ve already loved Kate Winslet and Jack Black from other movies, but this was actually the first time I’ve seen Jude Law and Cameron Diaz in a film. I ended up loving both of them, though!

Clue. Oh my goodness, this movie has me laughing the entire time I’m watching it. The cast is brilliant, the humor is nonstop, and people are dying this way and that. What’s not to like? ;D If you know how to play the classic board game, Clue, then you’ll know what’s going on in this movie, and you’ll appreciate all the references. Tim Curry playing Wadsworth, the butler, is my favorite part of the whole movie.

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban. I couldn’t list my favorite movies and not mention Harry Potter somewhere! This is my favorite Potter film because, for some reason, it is the most intriguing to me. I love the additions to the cast, and the focus on finding whoever’s after Harry … or not … haha I’m trying not to give away anything! I also love all the Defense Against the Dark Arts lessons that Professor Lupin teaches; those scenes are fantastic!

Thanks so much for reading, everyone! Do we have any favorites in common? And how about you?

What are YOUR favorite movies?

I’ll see you guys for this challenge again tomorrow, then lastly on Wednesday for the grand finale!
