Blogging Ta Da {18}

Posted April 7th, 2020 by in Blogging Ta Da / 0 comments

Ooooooooohhhhhh buddy. Has 2020 been like a decade long or is it just me? Right as we got back from vacation the United States joined the pandemic. At the time I was hoping to get back into the swing of things the rug was pulled out from beneath all of us. I’ve been safe at home for 23 days now.

Thankfully I’ve been working remotely for a year and a half. Right now I don’t go back to the office because when I do it’s for a few days. Our office is closed to employees except for quick trips in to do things that can only be done in the office. I’ve only been out to pick up our grocery orders.

To be honest, I’m really not dealing as well as I would have expected and its taken some time to discover a new system that works for me. I think I’m coming out of the fog and I’m learning day by day what “works for me” really looks like.

All that to say I’ve been reading here and there and I’m actually excited about it again. So I’ve decided to dust off my reviewing and blogging skills and see how blogging looks for me in 2020. Things may be inconsistent or different. Some things I’ll probably always do the same way; other things I may find a different way. I’ve decided to be flexible and see how everything flows.

Here are this week’s updates and goals!
