September 2015

Can you believe that we are already in September?

I don't know why but this year has been going by extremely fast, for some reason 2016 just wants to be here already. I know this month is going to be an extremely busy one because this the prep month for homecoming and Halloween which rolls right into my birthday and Thanksgiving, then caps it off with Christmas and New Years. I Mean we could go even a bit farther and say that Valentines Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day and then Fourth of July are all in succession. So basically you have to plan out what you're going to be doing to the T because honestly you're going to be hitting it hard from October until next July. But you guys know that I'm not really a holiday person per say and since I'm single I get to miss a lot of holidays, *dances around in a circle*, here I come Black Friday & Cyber Monday!

So what's going on this month? Hmmm let's see here ..

Well first and foremost I want to acknowledge Quirky, Brown Love and her list of 200+ AMAZING Black Blogger and Shimmy Sistah and her Top 7 Galactic Bloggers List. It's an extremely humbling thing when your peers recognize you and give you a place on their tops list. I usually shy away from mentioning accomplishments and what not but these are two people I hold in the highest of regards when it comes to this blogging thing and it's just right to give them their due compliments for doing all that they do in the blogging world beyond their blog. Once again, I really thank them for the honor of being included on this list and being mentioned along side the ones that are really making a way in this blogging thing.

Ok now on to some goals that I have for this month, and they are really minuscule in the grand scheme of things. The first one is that I'm not going to eat out anymore because when I looked down and saw my bank account, that's where most of my money happened to disappear to. Plus I feel like I'm getting a little lazy in terms of the whole cooking thing, I need to get back on it and sharpen my skills. Since it's only me that I cook for I don't really feel like putting the time into it but that has to change and what not. Plus I need to start getting into to the groove seeing as how it's the winter months coming up and we all know how those snowed in days are.

The next thing that I'm going to start practicing is not cussing all month and stop using the world nigga. I vaguely remember when I did it some odd years ago that my vernacular increased significantly because my brain was searching for words to use in place of them. I also remember a lot of people were getting tired of me and my usage of big words lol. But that's something I wanted to try and do so that I can increase my speech and you know, impress some people and what not.

In terms of blogging I've been making significant steps within the last two months. July and August have both yielded the highest page views in my blogs history and also numerous people praising my content. I've even had someone steal my steal and the content of one of my blog posts, but that's coming a little later this month when I address that. This year I wanted to focus solely on increasing content, that was the main and only goal, by the looks of it I'm exceeding that goal and my readers don't know how happy that makes me.

When I was cleaning out my drafts folder and organizing them, I realized that by the end of the year I will have around 270 blog posts for this year, now I'm not saying I'm going to do this but I'm going to try to post at least 365 posts to the site. The one thing that I'm always worried about is over saturation but I do know that next year I plan on slowing all the way down and only posting around three posts a week, if that. So to have all of these old posts floating around would be ideal seeing as how my readers can go back and read them because I'd like to think that the majority of my posts are relatable, even months or years down the road.

Those are some simple goals for this month, like I said this is going to be a very chill month in terms of getting read and prepared for the coming activities during the late fall and winter months. I don't want to really overload my brain with anything at the current moment, but I'd rather enjoy the space that I'm in right now. I'm learning to enjoy the things that I've earned and right now I'm enjoying the recognition from my peers in terms of blogging from all of the things that I've done this year in terms of blogging. Thanks to everyone again for this feeling.
