50 (More) Random Facts About Me

So, when I wrote the first installment of 50 Random Facts About Me, I had no idea it would be viewed so frequently! I overthought the original SO many times. My internal monologue included thoughts like: “Will people think I’m conceited?!”                                                                                                    “Can I even think of 50 things?”                                                                                                           “It’s not conceited right?”                                                                                                                       “I’m not even interesting!”                                                                                                                    “Oh!

5 Ways to Improve Your Blog

I feel sort of funny offering blog improvement advice when I’ve been blogging for just over a year, and am by no means an expert. However, I have been spending a lot of time lately not only trying to step up my game regarding future content, but also thinking about things I can do to better my blog, even if I can’t post new content on a particular day.
