Happy New Year Everyone!

It’s the first day of a New Year, do you have any special plans? Maybe you have some new resolutions in your personal life. As for me, I’m making some new resolutions for my blog life.


I was recently engaged to the love of my life and over the next year I will be planning a wedding, that being said, I have one more aspect of my life that needs attention. I love the WordPress community and all the people I have met here, but I will have to cut down on the time I spend online because as I said, I will be planning a wedding.

That being said, do not fear, I am not leaving! I am only reducing my time online this year. Instead of posting every day, I plan to post 3-5 times a week and only on the week days. I will still be around reading and commenting on your blogs, but I may not be as present.

At the end of 2017 . . .

I graduated from college with my Master’s degree and got engaged all within a matter of days. It was the perfect ending to a fantastic year.

Now, as 2018 begins . . .

I will be teaching college English, finishing my first book and hopefully publishing it toward the end of the year, and planning a wedding. This is an extremely important, wonderful, and crazy time of my life and I am so glad that I can express myself here.

So, Happy New Year everyone!

I pray that you all will have an incredible year!

A Combination of Questions from TShaw and DreamFilledDaughter

What inspired you to start blogging?

  • I was inspired to start blogging as a way to promote my writing and build my platform. However, this experience has become much more than that. It is a great way to engage in the writing community.

And finally, since this is the Blogmas season after all, what is your favorite thing about Christmas?

  • Christmas is a time of hope. It signals the birth of Christ and the hope that he brought into the world, the love that it took to come, and the joy that we have upon his arrival.
