2016 Wrap-Up

I know it’s a terribly clich├ęd idea for a blog post, but looking back at the year often provides valuable lessons for the future. We probably all had that one big, embarrassing failure we don’t want to talk about and pray will never happen to us again. We all hopefully experienced a few deviously designed plans by the devil that confounded us but which we overcame anyway, becoming wiser in the process. We all definitely had those beautiful moments where the entire universe was perfectly aligned just for us, which brings a smile on our faces even as we think about it now. By now you should be convinced this is a great post idea. If you are, then bear with me as I share how 2016 went for me (and you can tell me all about yours after that).

Blog Thanksgiving

I’m quite aware that the actual holiday was a month ago, but I just like the spirit of the festival and thought it’d make a good title. This is a listicle, but bear with me because you might see your name in this one. The idea is to thank the people who’ve made blogging worthwhile for me either by being extremely nice and kind in the comments section or by liking all of my posts or just by posting excellent content that inspires me to improve or, as in most cases, doing them all. It’s been a year since I started blogging “seriously” and I don’t think I’d have lasted even this long if it hadn’t been for these wonderful people. Ready to meet them? (In no particular order, I swear.)

Creative Woes + An Announcement

I’ve been dreading writing this post and putting it off for the longest time. It seems like every time I take a break, it gets a little more difficult to return to the habit. Not for lack of ideas or interest, it’s mostly fear.
