Honestly, I have no idea how to begin this post, so please bear with me.
What I want to do is share a review of 2019, my wins and more with you guys – my readers.
And hoping that this helps me appreciate my journey through life, blogging and everything else.
In the end, I will also share my plans for 2020.
Let’s get started!
A Recap Of My Personal Life In 2019
Firstly, I want to recap on my personal life in the year 2019.
My family relocated from the city of Dunbar, WV to Saint Albans, WV.
This was huge for me because it was a much-needed move.
A better apartment with a central air system, dishwasher, and a better bedroom for my kids.
Travels in 2019
My family and I visited Washington and Maryland in October 2019.
I will always remember that trip because I had stayed in West Virginia for over a year without any traveling whatsoever.
It almost drove me crazy especially since I work from home.
So when my husband planned the trip, I agreed without hesitation.
It was a long interesting drive except for my little guy getting car-sick and all that.
But we had so much fun in both Maryland and Washington.
Got out of my comfort zone
Sometime in the year 2019, I forced myself to speak and write in my own voice.
I think about stuff but struggle to put it into writing but I am getting there.
And in my effort to let out my voice, I found voice chakra yoga and will be doing lots of it.
Declutter in 2019
Last year I decluttered the kids’, hubby’s, and my wardrobe. I sold some and donated the rest. Now we have space for new stuff.
New friends made in 2019
In the year 2019, we made very good friends with a few families at church. And they are one of the best people my family ever met.
What’s life without good friends?
My answer – NOTHING! Absolutely nothing!

Blogger friends made: I can’t remember how many blogger friends I made in 2019 but I will name a few.

My Plans For 2020
Now that I have recapped my 2019, let’s take a look at a few plans I have for 2020.
More helpful posts
Hopefully this year I plan to write and publish more helpful posts.
Let me know in the comments the kind of posts you want to see more on this blog this year.
I plan and hope that I can speak and write more in my own voice.
I guess this will help you guys know me better and also help me be myself more.
Grow my blog pageviews
My plan is to get my blog to 10k monthly pageviews before the end of January 2020.
Let’s make it happen, guys.
Make more money from Google Ads
For the year 2020, I plan to make at least $100 monthly from Google AdSense ads.
Get more Guest Contributors
I am hoping I can get at least one contributor every month for the year 2020.
If you are interested, see the Write For Us page to know the requirements to be a contributor to this blog.
Lead a healthy lifestyle
In the year 2020, I plan to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
I am currently on a 30-day yoga journey titled Home.
Oh boy! I am loving it!
Also, I recently installed a water drinking app that reminds me to rehydrate every 1hour.
This has been great because I usually forget to drink water and it causes lots of stress and headaches for me.
So bye-bye to headaches hopefully.
Plus I have reduced my food portions plus sugar consumption because my weight is getting out of hand.
Make More Blogger Friends
As for blogger friends, I am always happy to meet new people with different perspectives.
So let’s see how that goes.
