Tune In to See 2019 Blog Updates

HAPPY HOLIDAYS LOVES! I hope you all have some wonderful plans for the upcoming holidays. Eat lots of goodies, spend time with family, and find some time to relax!


With the new year approaching, I’ve decided to make a few GOOD changes with this blog. This will be my last post for 2018, so I can enjoy the holidays and browse/prep some new content ideas.

I’ve been researching and learning a lot about blogging lately. It’s turning into a newfound passion of mine so I’m tweaking and changing as I continue and as a I learn.

So here are a few updates to expect:

1. Upgrade- I’ve been using a free WordPress template because I wasn’t sure what my plan was with this whole thing yet, but I decided to upgrade so more options to play with and an actual website: http://www.lifewithamanda.com . YAY.

2. Pictures- I was previously using some of the pictures that were just offered from the wordpress gallery and some of my own but I’m going to TRY to stay away from this and only use mine to be more original. This could get difficult with lack of time to take pictures sometimes but that’s my goal. Although some of you maybe didn’t notice the difference!

3. Format- I have definitely been all over the place with posting and formatting and trying to figure this whole thing out (at least I think I have been) My plan is to be more consistent with formatting/fonts/etc. so everything will hopefully look a little more clean.

4. Consistency- I have also been posting SUPER randomly. But I want to create a consistent schedule so you know what to expect and when to expect it. SO, this is my favorite news because I’m so excited. Every TUESDAY at 7:00pm I will post a deeper faith-based blog and every THURSDAY at 7:00pm I will post a health/lifestyle blog. If this gets to be too much I will definitely let you know if I decide to cut back on posts, but I’m trusting that God will give me what I need to maintain that schedule. I LOVE my faith posts. But, I also haven’t been posting about health or lifestyle as much as I want to as well. So, this way we get the best of both worlds and you know exactly what to expect!

Like I said, I’m learning and changing as I see necessary so if I make any other updates, I will be sure to let you know. Bear with me as I work on these changes and do my best! Some of you maybe didn’t even notice some of these things I mentioned, so if that’s you then ignore my perfectionism (the content is really what matters, right?). I hope you are all as excited as I am to take on these new changes. Expect a post on January 1st to kick off the new year.

Also, if you’re interested in seeing some of my day to day foods, workout videos, and overall tidbits about my day or different recipes/quotes/happiness stuff, follow my instagram account: amanda_bartle_


I have another account, amandabartle_health that I used in the past to post all of my “health related” info, but I discontinued it because I found it much easier to just post everything on my personal page. So that one is NOT where I post anymore (it’s only still active because I’ve been using it for some ideas and such).

The important things:

-Keep an eye out for Tuesday/Thursday posts at 7:00pm starting January 1, 2019

-Follow me on Instagram to see some good stuff or to stay tuned in on my life

-Have a wonderful Christmas and fun-filled New Year’s celebration!

Talk soon.

Much love,
