Monthly Check-In

In the past I have only posted when I have crossed something off my list, or made some really good progress on something.  This year, however, I’d like to start posting a little more regularly. One of the ways I’d like to do this is by having a monthly update, a status report of sorts.

I think this will be a good way to keep myself on task, stay focused on the many projects I have going on at any given time, and let you all know when I’ve been slacking. It’s also fun because I plan on doing it in list form. (Yay, lists!)

So for my first month, here’s a little rundown of what I’ve been up to in January.
