January 2019 [Wrap Up]

Wrap Up January 2019 | Creative Writing | Reading | Blogging | Goals | RachelPoli.com


Reading was, I’ll admit, slow-going this month. I think it was because I was ahead for reviews so I felt like I was ahead with my reading. I did finish reading what I had planned to read this month though. I’m hoping to get more reading done in February though. I’d like to get back into that habit.


I had planned a lot of writing for the month of January, but plans changed. I ended up doing a lot of planning and outlining instead. I can’t complain about that though. I still made progress. I also officially started my Fiverr account. This is something I’ve flip-flopped on for a really long time and decided to do it in addition to the services from my blog. Mostly though, I’m still plugging away at my books.


January was a good month for blogging. I got so many graphics done ahead of time, which was be super time consuming. I have a list of series that I can write for the whole year, which I plan on doing soon. Overall though, I got my January and most of my February blog posts done.


January was kind of a weird month. I didn’t get done what I had originally planned on getting done, but I still accomplished some things. January was a huge planning month for me and I got myself organized and prioritized a lot of projects. So I feel good.

  1. I’m glad January was a good month for you, even if it didn’t go entirely to plan.

    I believe I’m a book ahead of schedule on my reading goal, though I’m a disk behind schedule on my watching goal. I actually managed to get some writing time in (even if it wasn’t as much as I’d hoped) despite sorting most of February’s blog posts too. I also managed to complete the craft project I wanted done by the end of the month (and even got photos sorted in time to get those posted in Tuesday’s post) and got loads of quality time with hubby and the furkids in too. All in all, I think January was a fantastic month for me. I didn’t completely manage to achieve every goal for the month, but I achieved most things I planned to, and at least made some progress on the things I didn’t quite complete. So, a great start to 2019!
