A Day in the Life – 2016 Event Link-Up

A Day in the Life


I love this day so much. Well, I’m assuming I will as I loved it last year so much. Over the past couple of years, I’ve shared a few days of mine at random and commenters always say they’d like to record a day. Thus the Day in the Life blogger event was born. I meant to do a fall session last year, but time got away from me, so here we are a year later.

Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who tweeted or facebooked or blogged about this little event. I’m overwhelmed by the interest and hope that this year’s turn-out will be just as great as last year’s. And if you haven’t recorded a day yet but still want to participate, do it! Record today or tomorrow or the next day and link it up.

As I heard it last year, people keep mentioning how boring their days are. Maybe routine is a better word? But even if your day is boring to you, it’ll be different to the others. I love how this event recognizes our differences but also some of our similarities. I’m sure you can all relate to my trying desperately to squeeze in a few pages of reading here and there!

And because I said it best last year I’m cheating and copying what I said: Here’s to celebrating our differences and finding our similarities. Here’s to sharing a little piece of our own “behind the scenes” and connecting with someone else on a deeper level. Here’s to coming together as a community. Here’s to cheesy music in my head and group hugs.

  1. Thank you for hosting. My first time trying it out :)

    I won’t say my life is boring– I certainly had enough to keep me going on my random day– but I see that there is a similarity between all us bloggers. Lesson to be learned… folks everywhere are all more alike than different.

  2. I promise to come visit fellow bloggers; I just have to wait until my teaching day is done. :) Thanks for hosting this fun event, Trish!

  3. I thought it might be too late for me…but maybe there is still a chance….Friday might be my day to share. Meanwhile, I’ll be visiting others’ days, getting the hang of how it works. Fun! Thanks for hosting.

    • Yes! Definitely link-up whenever you can Laurel. I’ve heard from a handful of people that they’ll be posting over the next few days. :)

    • Hi Lori! There will be people linking up throughout the week so feel free to join anytime if you’d like!! Record tomorrow and link-up later. :)

  4. Love, Love, Love this day. I think everyone’s day is interesting, but find it funny we all say, “I’m so boring!” I think we’re all fun in our own unique little ways. Thanks for hosting.

  5. Trish, you’re a great mum, why are we so hard on ourselves as mums? Your girls are happy, healthy and so very loved. Great post, though it did make me tired!

    I saw a “My Day” post from one of the participants and I’ve been reading through a number of the links here. I keep thinking about “Ulysses” which is about one day in the life of Leopold Bloom. Like the participants, Bloom did ordinary things — got up, went where he had to go, saw people, and so on, but also, he had a constant interior conversation ranging all over the things that came up in his mind. The novel “Mrs. Dalloway” is a very different kind of read about one woman’s day (also about her alter ego the shell-shocked veteran), but has similar parallels to the group theme here. In reading the blog posts I kept finding: fiction and bald truth are so different!

  7. Hmm I have read a few posts for this, what a great idea, might even get on it if I can get to it. Might do it tomorrow! Well record it tomorrow and post Sunday – bad day but still fun.

  8. I have visited and commented on quite a few of the links, very cool! I will participate when I retire and have something to share. As I am working in law enforcement not all of my day is fascinating or cool. But I liked hearing about others ☺️
