Welcome to my monthly wrap-up post for January 2018, a time when I reflect on the month that has just passed, review what I’ve achieved and set my goals for next month.
January has been a busy month for me as I have made a lot of changes to the blog, including a name change, layout re-design and, of course, the switch to WordPress. I wanted to start the year as I meant to go on, dedicating much more time to the creative hobbies I enjoy. After a long time of feeling blocked, I’ve been inspired to start writing again and I feel like I finally have my ‘mojo’ back. So, all in all, it’s been a fantastic month.
Below are my stats for January:
Total Blog posts: 12. You can find them all here.
Comments: Only 1 😥 I’ve had some issues with importing my comments from Disqus but hopefully these are now resolved. I really want to work on engaging my readers better in the coming months.
Books finished: 0. I’m still in the middle of reading The Kill Order but I haven’t had much time for reading at all this month.
Books reviewed: 0
Book tours/spotlights: 0
WiP words written: 4000. You can find out more about my WiP here.
New poems: The Sun’s Return
New artwork: The new blog header and other layout images
Other: I’ve been experimenting with different homemade soup recipes.
