Blog Accomplishments 2021

At the start of the year, I set out to be more consistent and write and publish at least one blog post every month. However, I became inspired by the incredible blogs and websites on this platform, and I ended up writing more than initially planned. Ultimately, it has gone better than I could have imagined…

  1. Reaching 950+ Followers (…from the bottom of my heart, thank you! πŸ’˜)
  2. Blogger Award Nominations
  3. 40+ Published Posts
  4. More Engagement (…from the site redesign, internal links, comments, etc.)
  5. Plan Upgrade and Registered Domain (…meaning more freedom to explore different themes and features)

What were your accomplishments in the last 365 days? πŸ’

Thank you for reading my last post of 2021! This year has come with its hardships and challenges, and I would like to wish that everyone is blessed with health, wealth, and happy moments in 2022! πŸ™

      • Aww. You bless me for roaming in my woods. Thanks for the lovely praise. Yes, I have one short story out there. I started out with audatious plans to write a collection of shorts– I took a publishing course, you see. But, lacking smarts, I couldn’t get the formatting right, or uniform for all the pieces. Arg! So, in the end I only published ONE. It was my best one. Since then, I’ve shied away. One day I’ll grow some courage. Wait for it. Thanks. You are sweet.

  2. Wow — great blog! I was called out of class in grade school to take some kind of an IQ test. Told me I was “gifted.” All that meant was I got to go to some field trips once in a while. Call me gifted and suicidal.
