A Month in Review: January 2020

in Review: January

It’s been so long since I’ve done one of these. Actually, I have not done one since June. If you’ve just stumbled across my blog, “month in reviews” are posts that I’ve tried to do consistently since I’ve started blogging. It’s an opportunity to share more about my life with those reading and also allow myself to reflect. This way, I can continue to work towards my goals and make specific plans for the next month. So I’m going to try and do these every month and what better time to start than the first month of a new year? Heres my month in review for January!

My Review

So first off, I started school this month! I only started last week, but already I feel like I’m back into the routine of things. The holiday season is officially over. I have a really easy schedule this semester but the classes are more difficult. I’m honestly hoping that the new few months go by at a nice, slow, pace. I’ve been ready to graduate since I started, but now that its so close, the idea of being done with school scares me so much. Anyone else graduating this semester? Is anyone scared to graduate?! Please tell me I’m not alone!

When it comes to blogging, its been a really good month! I’ve had the most views that I’ve ever had in one month, which is amazing. I think its because of how much content I posted, this will be my eighth post for January (see all my posts for this month, here)! I’ve also been utilizing Pinterest much more this month and can see my work paying off. There’s still some areas that need work, but it’s going to be a huge focus for me in February.

Now for a little update on all my new years resolutions. I want to make sure to include this in my monthly reviews, mostly so I can keep myself on track. Here is my resolutions post, in case you’re wondering. I think this is the first time ever, I’ve kept up with my resolutions for longer than two weeks. I’ve been eating super healthy, going for walks, reading, working a lot on my blog, and I even started to learn new skills. I’ve been practicing the piano and recently, I started painting! I’m not very good, but its been so relaxing and fun and I even got my friends and family to paint with me.

February Plans

Now for my February plans! There is nothing specific that I have planned. I really just want to keep working towards my resolutions. My goal is to top my blog stats from this month and possibly even double them (very far fetched, I know). I need to keep working on my Pinterest strategies and find what works for me.

In my personal life, I want to stay on top of school and get work done early. I am going to have a lot of work this semester, so procrastination is not an option. I also want to stay on top of my healthy lifestyle when it comes to eating and working out. Another new goal of mine, is to spend less time on my phone. I want to cut my time spent on it, in half and use that time to do things that will actually benefit me.

And thats my month in review for January! I hope everyone had a great start to the new year. What are some of your plans/goals for next month? I would love to know! Hope you enjoyed this post!
