I didn’t know what to expect in January. Last year when my blog was still a baby, the entire month of January had a grand total of 38 views. I hadn’t yet adopted my new posting philosophy and I think I still had some posts about my own writing. But last month turned out quite well. It became my third best month ever, only eleven views from taking the second spot. So it was a nice month. Anyway, let’s get on with some stats from the month. I’m changing it up just a bit for the new year. And as always, previous record will be in parenthesis.
Posts: 29 (31)
Likes: 714 (689) New record!
Comments: 604 (2121)
Books Read: 4
Poems Posted: 1
Nothing special here. This was actually the first month I ever hit 700 Likes. That’s exciting, but it would be more so if those people would comment instead of just hit Like and move on. Eh. But if you’ve read my previous monthly recaps then you know I’ve added two new categories. I’m going to start including the number of books I read and the number of poems I post in my monthly recaps. It’ll be an easy way to see how close I am to reaching my goal of reading 50 books and posting 25 poems in 2015. Now for some posts.

And just a quick announcement. I’ll be posting everyday in February. Woo! Cause I know you’re so happy to hear that. I typically only miss one or two days a month anyway, but February is such a short month that I don’t see why I can’t just go ahead and post each day. So I will. AND I’m going to be asking y’all an important question in the coming days. Stay tuned!
How was your January?

January was great! Turned 41, saw an increase in blog traffic and most important wrote!
Woo! Sounds like a great month!
Nice stats! And at this rate, you deff should have 50 books read by the end of the year 😉 What books did you read in January?
We shall see. Um I read Moneyball by Michael Lewis. HP & the Chamber of Secrets. A Catskill Eagle by Robert B. Parker. And Hostage by Robert Crais.
I didn’t comment a whole lot… I am like what… 50% of your comments?? 😂😂😂
No. More like 5.5% of my last 1000 comments. Get over yourself. 😂
Oh hush. You know that’s not true. Why haven’t we tried breaking your record again? What was it? We were trying to hit 1,000 in a month? 😂 sad. Haha
I’ve sent my proof. I rest my case.
Because you don’t use WordPress.
I know. Haha I was kinda kidding. I know I haven’t been on hardly at all. I was going to post this morning cause I thought of a topic but I was too tired and out of it so I’ll do it tomorrow. Probably write it tonight if I get the chance.
Your one word replies are killing your comment count. 😂
Okay. Tell me what I should be saying.
I’m looking forward to February’s posts. Interesting blog!
Thanks! I’ll try not to disappoint.

An important question, huh??? I’m intrigued… I’m already imagining a bunch of scenarios that I’m sure are insanely far from the truth, but are entertaining all the same.
Yep. But it might be next week instead.
