March Life & Blogging Review
This post may contain affiliate links. Click here to read our full disclosure policy.
Well, yet another month has quickly flown by. I hope it was a good month for you all! I mentioned in my last monthly life & blogging review post, that I should jot down highlights and things as they happened, since I have such a hard time remembering specifics about entire months…. But guess what? Yeah, I forgot to do that. And now March seems like one big blur. Just like last month, and the month before, and the month before that. Well, if I can’t remember what the entire month was like, I guess that’s mostly because the days were all so similar. So would you like to know what a normal day looks like? Okay, here it is:
- Get up, Get ready
- Make bed, Do laundry, Clean bedroom
- Blogging (Check stats, reply to comments, update shares, create images, edit, add links, draft & schedule posts)
- Go to work
- Lunch (I’m normally doing some kind of blog work on my lunch break)
- Housework/Family Time
- Family Time/Cleaning/Misc. Blogging Things
- Quiet Time/Friends
And then what? I get up and repeat it all over again. Every. Single. Day. So yes, basically my entire month can be summed up with the summary of a single day. Throw in church, a ladies conference, bible quizzing, family social activities, and that totally sums it up! Oh, and of course there was the hiking trip with my best friend, where we just ended up hiking in a circle. And yes, I’m still confused and wondering where in the world we missed the trail turnoff…… Ha, well it was fun anyways 😉
And there you go. End of post. Thanks for reading!
Okay, okay, fine…….. I’ll try to do a little better than that. Let’s get onto some highlights!
Courtship In Crisis by Thomas Umstattd Jr.
My mother had me read this book last year, and it was so good that I decided to read it again. Basically, it’s the case for traditional dating, showing the pitfalls and dangers of “courtship” and why it just doesn’t work! If you are looking for dating/relationship books that were written from a wise, Christian perspective, I would highly recommend this one!
Productivity Hacks: A Time Management Plan To Become More Productive by George Pain
I was sent a free copy of this book by a publisher and asked if I could give an honest, unbiased review of it. (Perks of being a business blogger 🙂 Who would say no to free books?!) It wasn’t my all time favorite read, but overall it was a pretty good read with a lot of good, basic tips and advice.
Gingham Mountain by Mary Connealy
Okay, so I have to admit, I have a HUGE weakness for historical romances. Yes, huge. And especially when there are orphans and orphan trains involved. That being said, this was such a fun, perfect read!
Ha. This hasn’t been a great month for creating. Hand lettering and photography have been my only “creative” outlets lately. I recently started a quotes journal, where I write favorite words, quotes, song lyrics, and things like that. The quotes journal has been a lot of fun to scribble in, and I’m looking forward to totally filling it, because it will be fun to look through. (Picture example on the left) I’ve also had a lot of fun playing around with my new camera. Which brings us to our next highlight:
Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the month…..
March was an absolutely amazing month for blogging! Stats are starting to skyrocket, social media is on a steady rise, and posts are getting shared really well. Just ask my family and close friends, I’m probably driving them slightly crazy with all of my blog talk. Things are going so well though, I just can’t help it! I also have some of the sweetest readers, who are supportive and encouraging. Seriously, thank you all so much! It really means a lot. And there are a lot of great guest posts coming up that I’m super excited to be sharing with you all!
I’m also doing really well about stiking to a consistent blogging schedule. I’ve also started tring to go somewhere like a coffee shop or library several afternoons a week. It really helps me stay a lot more focused on my work when I’m not at home where there a million and one other distractions and things to do. I’m looking forward to seeing
And this post makes 11! I’m pretty sure that’s my record for the most posts in 1 month. And putting all of the work and hours into making sure that I have consistent posts has really, really paid off!
