It’s Monday! What Are You Reading #weeklyrecapIt’s Christmas Eve! Are there really only 2 more Mondays left in 2018?

My holiday wish for you and me? To finish 2018 with humor and grace and to begin the new year with courage and a positive spirit.

Last Week:

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading #weeklyrecapI didn’t get much reading done last week but I did use 4 lbs of powdered sugar, 24 oz of semi sweet chocolate, and more butter than I will admit to.

We’ve been watching season three of Travelers and it’s hard not to binge watch all ten episodes! Anyone else watching?

Blog Notes:

Continued to clean up and improve the blog. Upgraded our WordPress account to premium but am waiting to upgrade to business until I can justify the cost. Are widgets worth it? Figured out how to do a Featured Post. Enabled “mobile” theme on WordPress. Updated our 2019 Southern California Events Page. Spent a good amount of time on Twitter and Pinterest as I continue to evaluate the best way to reach likeminded book nerds. Lastly, interlinking. Did you know a good SEO practice is to link to your existing content within each post?
