One whole month!
You guys! It’s my blogiversary! A month ago (well 28 days ago), I purchased my domain and hosting and started setting up Diary of a Southern Millennial! I published My First Post the very next day, and even though no one checked it out, I was so excited to keep blogging! I’ve since posted 12 posts (including this one), and despite taking a week off because of my day job workload, I managed to post almost every other day! Thanks to all my regular readers and commenters for supporting me and I look forward to the next month!
My three most popular posts were:
I’ve had just over 2,100 pageviews this month which is pretty amazing seeing that I didn’t get on the social media thing until a week and a half in. Mistake #1! But that’s ok – I know March will be even better now that I’m getting the hang of it! I know my next blogiversary will be even better!
This week I have my hands full, I posted Europe Backpacking Trip : Our 2-Week Itinerary on Monday, my blogiversary post today, and tomorrow I leave for New Orleans to see Twenty One Pilots (Thurs.) and The Lumineers (Fri.) with my sisters! I absolutely cannot freaking wait! Blog post about my NOLA trip and concert experiences coming soon!
This past Sunday, I went to Biloxi, MS with my fiancé for a shooting competition. He loves to shoot competitively and drag me along, and because it’s on a weekend I am happy to tag along. Plus I got to play with our camera! On the way back, we stopped at Café du Monde in Covington, LA (which not many people realize there is one here btw), and had coffee and beignets!
I’ve been binge-watching Season 8 of The Vampire Diaries lately, and with only a few episodes left to go, I’m getting sad it’s their final season! Next on my list is Season 3 of How To Get Away With Murder, and I can’t wait! After last season’s ending, I’ve been so excited to see this new season! If you need other ideas for shows to watch, check out my 8 Binge-Worthy Shows on Netflix post!
I was absolutely swamped the week before last with my day-job workload and watching this cutie and my sister while my parents were out of town, so I didn’t really post anything (SORRY!).
But I finally managed to get all caught up this week, and started on my real estate course! If you real my How I Started Flipping A House post, you know I was supposed to close on the house last week. Unfortunately, the bank arranging the loan is dragging their feet and we still haven’t closed on the house yet. Fingers crossed that will happen next week!
Yesterday was Mardi Gras, and even though I don’t really go out and celebrate, I missed having some King Cake! Instead, I took a much-needed bath and made use of Lush’s Intergalactic bath bomb. Can I just say heaven? Shame my cat decided to act as my life guard!
And that’s pretty much it! Thanks again everyone for reading!
