We’ve reached the point where every blogger is setting their 2018 goals. Last year I threw mine together in a very slap-dash way, but am happy to say that I’m still pretty happy with the way 2017 turned out. But for 2018, I wanted to be very thoughtful about my aims, so I’ve been thinking… Continue reading 2018 Goals

That meant that I had to re-do everything and I still don't think it's quite right. And on top… Continue reading What’s the Purpose of Blogging Again?
