ITS THE LAST DAY OF BLOGTOBER! I am so excited that I was ACTUALLY able to create blog posts for the ENTIRE month! You guys just don’t know how excited that makes me! This has been QUITE the journey, but I’m so glad I did it and I’m SO appreciative of all of you for checking out these posts every day. Y’all are the real MVP’s!!

Welcome to Monthly Blessings!

If you were subscribed to the old WordPress website then you know that I am all about positivity and part of that includes being grateful for ALL accomplishments no matter how small. So, At the end of every single month, I will be sharing with you guys my wins for the month that I’m grateful for! Hopefully you will be inspired to consider the good things that have happened to you in that month and can spend some time in gratefulness!

We all spend a lot more time than we would like to admit complaining and being upset or frustrated. Work can drive us crazy or someone at school irritated you to your core. For mental sanity, it’s important to make a conscious effort to remember the things you’ve been blessed with in your life. I started practicing this about a year ago and I LOVE that I’m able to continue the cycle with this new website!


October’s Blessings

  • I went self-hosted! As you guys can see, I’ve FINALLY gotten my own website. I got myself an email list set up (FINALLY) and I love the new website! This did not happen easily. It took a lot of planning and I SUCK at anything tech related (funny since I work mostly online, huh). However, ThatWebsiteGuy  (affiliate) turned out to be a huge help! He created my website for me, set up my domain name, and connected it to my email list! All I had to do was tell him what I wanted and he did the rest. If you’re a blogger and you are considering going self-hosted, but don’t know or understand the tech type stuff, he is a good choice. Not to mention that you don’t have to pay until you are ready for your site to go live, but he will begin working on it right away! He’s easy to get into contact with! I definitely don’t regret working with him.
  • I completed Blogtober! The fact that I was able to write a blog post every single day this month was probably one of my biggest accomplishments in October. I had been promising to launch my website for months and so I thought it only fair to launch it by doing something special. What’s more special than working my poor fingers to the bone and getting posts out every single day?
  • I got a new client. I love finding new people to work with. Helping small influencers grow their influence online is a great feeling, BUT I’m also very picky about who I work with. This may be bad for business, but I won’t work for just any influencer trying to grow. I desire to help influencers who not only want to grow their online business, but that have positive working attitudes. Believe it or not, that’s not as easy t find. I started with a new client this month and I’m so excited to work with her! I love her content AND I love her positive energy! Two things that I feel are key components when you’re helping someone build their brand. I don’t believe I’d be good at building up something I don’t believe in.
  • I got to see my nana!  This may seem a little different to be so excited about, but I haven’t seen my nana in over a YEAR! I’d upload a picture, but she hates taking pictures and she would break my wrist if I tried to take one of her. Me and my nana used to be attached at the hip when I was younger, but now she lives all the way in North Carolina and so I rarely get the chance to visit, but she’s here and will be spending time with us for a couple of weeks! I’m so extremely excited!
  • We got to 100 subs on the couples channel! My boyfriend and I have a YouTube channel And a few days ago we reached 100 subs! I am so excited and happy because we didn’t expect it! We reached 100 while we were taking a little bit of a break from posting. To some this may be a small thing, but to us? It’s AWESOME! We absolutely love making videos and the fact that 100 people thought we were entertaining enough to subscribe after a short time on the platform is amazing to us! If you aren’t subscribed to that channel or my personal channel, feel free to check those channels out and subscribe if you like them!


So those are this months blessings. Every month, at the end of the month, you can expect to hear about all of the fantastical things that happen and hopefully you guys will want to share your blessings too because we are ALL blessed! Even if all you have to say is that you’re alive! There’s no greater blessing than that, right?

    Congrats on all your accomplishments! It’s great to take on the attitude of gratitude because it is so easy to go down the negative rabbit hole when in reality, we all so much to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing and I wish you the best with your new website. 🙂
