January 2019 Reading

One and a half months into my 2019 reading challenge and I think it’s time to talk about it. I know it’s February, but I like the thought of talking about each month’s reading, and January is a good place to start.

On Blogging for Two Years

I’ve been thinking about my blog lately; how it’s changed over the (many) months, how it ranges from longer posts to short thoughts that didn’t even make sense to me at the time.
