Seriously? Where does the time go? I realized last week that I had this post on my calendar, and I hadn’t even thought about it. I’m surprised how crazy January became. It was probably the longest month in recorded history. Hopefully, you understand what I mean. I know a lot of people agree with me. I felt like it was never-ending, like the number of expenses that crept out of nowhere. I was starting to feel like the year as starting on the wrong foot. But I wasn’t about to let a few unexpected events get me down.
Life always surprises me with all its twists and turns. January proved life will never cease to amaze me. Last year was such a whirlwind. I’m determined to make this year better in every way. Without any further delay, here is my life lately.
The January Relaunch of The Magical Thinker
After an unsuccessful year in 2017, I completely whipped the slate clean for 2018. I redid my layout and deleted all but a handful of posts. Only keeping the posts I was proud to call my own, I started almost fresh. I started off the year with Hello, New Years. It was a simple way of saying hello to the new beginning and welcoming a new start. Since then I’ve posted a few blog posts, all of which I’m so proud of. I wish I’d posted more, but I’m glad I started at all.
Of course, that’s not even the best news. The most astounding thing in January was all that I accomplished. I achieved over twenty-two hundred views in one month, which was more views than all of 2017 combined. And as of writing this, I’ve had more views this year than any other year. I’ve never been more proud of myself.
If you missed any of them, here is a list of my posts from January:
Out of the seven posts last month, 10 Beauty Hacks was by far my most popular and successful. Along with my success with page views, I was approved for Amazon and Target’s affiliate programs. This blog has been a dream of mine for a long time. While I still haven’t made a sale through my affiliate programs, I’m excited to be apart of the blogging community once again.
My Little Kitty
The Results of Her Test
I got the results later that next week. It’s NOT cancer or bacteria. They suggested anti-biotics when it started to grow back, but all in all, she’s doing well. There is a beautiful bald spot on her backside where they shaved her. The only difference is she’s been more affectionate than usual, which makes me love her more.
I’m all this little creature will ever know. If this experience taught me anything, it’s that she won’t be around forever. It’s my job to give her all the love and admiration I can.
While a lot more craziness happened in the whirlwind that was January, those were the highlights. I’ll end it there. How as your January? Let me know in the comments! Till next time!
