Reflecting on May: Blogging
After a couple months of silence, I finally got back into the blogging game this past month and I’m so happy I have. I’m still working out some kinks in motivation and inspiration, meaning that I haven’t 100 percent stuck to any kind of a schedule yet; but I’m back, and that’s what was most important this month. I also spent the month focusing on Facebook growth and made it to nearly 500 followers – more than twice what I started the month with, so I’d consider that a success. As for editing my archives, I admittedly let that one go a bit until the end of the month, but in the last week I’ve gotten about 10 to 20 posts updated, so I guess that’s a partial success?
Reflecting on May: Life
I’m still settling into my new apartment in a new city, along with some relatively big changes at work that have made the office pretty hectic over the last couple of weeks. Other than that, there’s not much to report around here.

Complete My First Weaving Project I actually just started this yesterday, but so far I’m pretty happy with it. Next I just need to figure out how to get the weaving off the loom without it falling apart (which is what has happened to both of the other weavings I’ve tried to make). Got any great tips?
Stick to a Posting Schedule I’ve been a little all over the place with post this past month, so it’s probably difficult to notice; but I’ve been trying to stick to a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday posting schedule. Before my impromptu blogging break, I stuck to five days a week. But obviously that led to burnout and a total lack of ideas, so I’m hoping this mid-week break will help avoid that.
Get Out More I spend my weekdays in a windowless room in front of a computer screen for work, and tend to come home and repeat the process except this time with windows and my laptop. I’ve started ended more of my days with headaches than I’d like, and this has to be to be at least partially from the amount of time I spend starting at a computer. I’d like to spend more time away from that this month, whether it’s outside, crafting, reading, or whatever else to get me away from blogging and Netflix for a while on the weekends.
