Month in Review(s) - January 2019



January went by in a flash - and not the cool, Barry Allen, kind. (You gotta love nerd humour 😁)

I guess it's because I had an awful cold for half the month...? 😷

And aside from that, I've just been doing the usual, hectic, working-my-a**-off, stuff.




Y'know me, never a moment when I'm not working on something or other!

(I'm so tired 💤😅)

So, what with everything, I haven't had chance to finish off any reviews, and I'm still doing the whole running-to-catch-up thing instead of blogging ahead.

But f**k it, I managed around three posts a week! That counts, dammit!



And, I totally love you dearest nerdlets! Because Dora Reads passed 300k total page-views in January!

I mean, I realise that's the Blogger total, which assumes nothing is a bot, rather than using Analytics, which assumes everything is.

But it's still totally awesome and I love you all!!!! 😍😍😍

  1. I really felt that January dragged by. I’m happy to be rid of it, because the closer we get to summer, the happier I’ll be.

    1. Ha, I actually don't really like summer - me + heat = not good!

    1. Thank you! :) And yeah, I'm feeling OK (except I cricked my neck... *sighs*)

      Three posts covers Nerd Church, Comics Wrap-Up, and Friday Fics Fix, and I like to fit in at least one (hopefully two, but that doesn't seem to ever happen) more post per week so that I'm not just putting out the same content all the time!
