Since its a new year, I thought I would start over with a new blog schedule because I got lost in school and trying to fit in new activities last year. Also, I re-started my blog all at the same time. I began back in 2013 on “Blogger” using Google, but now, my new blog started last year during National Poetry Month (April 2018).
I like to do writing challenges because I can get the momentum going effectively to write and blog. I gained more followers during that time by posting everyday that I realized what is the best time to post, which day of the week, and what my readers like to read about from me.
In other news, I created a few resolutions, including this new blog schedule. I decided to post bi-weekly for book reviews on Tuesdays, and creative writing content every other day. At least once a week. So, tomorrow I will post a book review on a adult fiction book I read recently. Then, on Thursday, I will post a short story (on any topic and short length; maybe even flash fiction).
My other resolutions include:
- finish my novel (started in 2017; only 5 chapters left until editing mode)
- succeed in graduate school (I got a year and a half left)
- commit to a gym routine
- read the bible
- do more volunteer and outreach (i have always liked to do this type of work)
- lastly, no more stressing about the things I cannot control
The last one is very important to me because last year, I was so busy worrying about passing classes, pleasing people, applying fir full time work and whatnot. At the end of the day, I was not happy.
In 2020, I want to be happy and do what makes me passionate about life.
