Hello Again!

Today I'm linking up with my TBB Buddies for today's Spring prompt, Reintroducing Myself to my Readers!  Some readers are old friends, some are new readers, and others have found me thanks to The Blended Blog! And to all of you I say a big thank you!! 

And if you've just found yourself here today, a Hi and hello to you!  Here's a few fun facts about little ol' me!

  • I started this blog way back in 2012 , really on a whim.  I had just living in my new apartment, all by my lonesome, and all these crazy things started happening so one day I announced in the faculty room at my school that I was gonna start a blog called the Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life, I actually got great feedback!  HA!  So after thinking about it, a few days later I set it up!!  You can read my very first post here!! I'd say my blog is definitely more of a lifestyle blog, like my life! 
                                        I like the ring of Mishaps and Mayhem better in the end!
  • Even though the blog is called The Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life, that really just refers to my life, on my own, as a single girl!  I really don't live too much of a solitary life.'s only some nights I sit on my couch all alone binge watching my shows and drinking wine! I am surrounded by huge family, lots of friends and about 230 kids that I love!  In my job as a teacher!  I am a librarian and technology teacher at a small Catholic School in my town.  And this year I am back to having my own home room as well. I teach 6th grade religion.  I love what I do and often spend more time at work than I do at home!!  So you'll see friends and Family sprinkled throughout the blog as well.  Sometimes I blog about my life as a teacher on the blog!  Read one of my  favorite teacher posts here!!  
  • In the early days I didn't know so much that a better blog called for pictures! And I blogged very little. In 2012 and 2013, I don't think I even blogged twenty times!  It wasn't until 2014 that I really started reading other blogs regularly and decided to kick my own in to high gear joining link-ups to grow my readership and make blog friends!  I know have a faithful following and and awesome bunch of blog friends both and in blogland and in real life thanks to The Blended Blog and my (very minimal) contributions there!
  • I blog for me and for fun and as an outlet.  I don't do it for profit or as a full time job!  And I am totally okay with that.  That not what my blog will ever be. I don't even know where my blog fits in this world but I love it and am so glad to be a part of it!

To help you get to know me better, I thought I'd share some of my favorite posts!

If you've landed here for the first time today, thanks for visiting...I hope you'll stick around! And if your one of my OG's, thanks for putting up with my crazy antics over the years!! 

Hope you have an awesome Monday!!  If you are a blogger, head over to TBB and link up with us today!  Can't wait to meet new friends!!
