"It's been a long time coming, but I know a change gon' come!"- Sam Cooke

This blog has been in need of a makeover! I have had zero motivation to do anything on it, because I'm just not inspired, lots of stuff has been going on, but I have managed to shirk all opportunities to write about them.

And it never fails......everytime I read Sis. Payne's blog, I think man I really wish I had themed days, so I always have something to inspire me.

So, I don't care how completely unoriginal I'm being, Starting next week it's a whole new Big Girls Need Love Too...... I hope you don't mind the theft of the theme idea, but you know since when have I shy'd away from that?

Here's a breakdown of the days.....

"My Hero"Monday-

I love to give shout outs to people that inspire, or impress me, or even just make my life happier! I picked this theme because It seems to me I'm always thinking about people I want to pay homage to, because they dazzle me with their character, so you can expect pictures and stories about a new person each week, that has done something I think is amazing!

"Top 5"Tuesday-

This is the first of the "Not from Emily" ideas.... if you've read my blog before I bet you can guess who I stole this idea from.  The Top 5 list idea came from Angie (shocking!) via the movie High Fidelity, the characters in the movie are always spotting off top 5 lists usually themed towards music because they work in a record shop. but anyway Angie has always said it's the perfect amount, sometimes there just aren't enough options to constitute a top 10, not to mention sometimes that gets long, top 5 is quick and to the point, and since I'm notorious for making things longer then I need to, I figure this is a great way to help me out with my long windiness! But be warned I may throw a top 10 in on occasion in case I wanna talk about favorite TV shows or food or outfits or something!

"What Up" Wednesday- 

Wednesdays will give me a chance to give updates on my life, things I'm doing or looking forward to doing, and a chance to post pictures of what's going on in my world... this could be the most boring day of all, so you may just wanna skip this day, I will not be mad!

"Thank You" Thursday-

Jimmy Fallon has a lot of great bits on his late night Talk show, but so far my all time favorite is when he writes his Thank you cards at the end of the week, it's always random, but hilarious, and I love the idea so I'm stealing it, (also my friend Katie does this same sort of thing on her blog which I think is super funny... so yet another friend I copy!) I am not as clever as Jimmy or his writers, and I do not have a member of "The Roots" playing  special Thank You mood music while my thoughts are read a loud, but I'll make due with what I got, you can't have it all right? 

"Flashback" Friday-

remember that "my life Through the 00's" blog I started but never completed, this is an excuse for me to bring that back, and also gives me a chance to finally post my embarrassing dance pictures, or some of the cool old photos of my parents and grandparents, Friday is my day to reminisce about the past.

So that's the new and improved blog from Emily.... hope you like it, and See ya next week!

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few
months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any
solutions to protect against hackers?
