Anyone else feel like it was just March? Since quarantine started, the weeks have been flying by, but also at the same time, felt slow. Now it’s going to be June and it’s time for another month in review. May was a month of change, closure, and more social distancing.
The first big thing that happened for me this month was graduating college! I’m officially a grad student and earned my bachelors degree! I did a whole post about it, and what it’s like to be a graduating student during quarantine. To quickly sum it up, the feeling is bitter-sweet. Although it wasn’t what I imagined, graduating college is a bitter-sweet feeling.
Another focus this past month has been blogging. In April, I lost motivation when it came to my blog and was determined to change that in May. I’m happy to say that I did! I beat my all time record for monthly views (and there is still a few days left!) and I started to work on my Pinterest again. I also did a little retouch to my blog logo because I wanted something a little more simple and versatile. Making that little change is what sparked motivation to start working on my blog again!
The weather has been getting so much warmer, and so I’ve basically been outside all day, everyday. I’m grateful to be able to have a backyard to sit in and take in the beautiful weather. I’ve also started to go on drives, just to get out of the house and it’s been great! I’ve also been making it a priority to workout everyday and I’m slowly starting to love it.
As for next month, I’ll still be social distancing and mainly just be working on my blog. I’ve spent a long time doing Pinterest research and want to start focusing more on SEO. Now that I’m done with school, what better of a time to start? I also want to get back to my strict posting schedule, since I’ve missed a few posting days this month. I already have all my posts planned out for June, most of them being Summer themed. Can you believe that it’s going to be Summer already?!
I hope you guys enjoyed this month in review! What have you been doing to stay busy during quarantine? Do you feel like the weeks are going fast or slow? I would love to hear how everyone else’s month was!
