August wasn’t the best month for me in terms of reading or blogging. My work-life balance crashed like an exponential curve (hence the reference to nuclear decay) right from the start. I was so exhausted at the end of every day that picking a book up or even opening my laptop to blog felt like a chore. However, things have evened out a little this last week and I’m hopeful that September will be a good month.

July was a month of highs and lows, of idle days spent staring at the pouring rain while listening to an audiobook and frantic work as the clock marched towards midnight.

However, my adherence to my blogging schedule, stats and engagement has climbed since June, which is a big reason to celebrate. Let me tell you all about it in my July 2020 wrap-up!Read More »July 2020 Wrap-Up: The Seesaw Effect

April was also a month that dragged on, the definitions between days blurring together. However, it did give me a lot of free time to read and blog, so you will see a spike in my reading and blogging stats. It’s not a healthy boost because this was fuelled by the intense need to disconnect from the horrors of the new normal. Hoping that I can find healthier ways to carry this momentum into May, let me share with you my April 2020 wrap-up!Read More »April 2020 Wrap-Up: The Exponential Growth Phase

Time may be only an illusion but it did fly by this January. 2020 has been off to an interesting start so far.

How did that pan out for me? Let’s nosedive into my January 2020 wrap-up to find out!Read More »January 2020 Wrap-Up: The Big Bang!
