out with the OLD: 2016

I might not have read a lot but could the slump be over? Well sort of, I was still slumping and it was almost over. It was finally coming to an end but I have a notebook full if ideas and I have a ton of things I want to do in the new year and of course have a bunch of stuff I plan to keep the same.

Most of the things on the blog will stay the same but I also plan to add a few other features or memes in the new year. Lets list all the stuff that is staying

  • My TBR List of course will be back next year, it is my favorite
  • Task it Tuesday ~ This doesn’t get a lot of love but I plan to keep doing it even if I do it alone.
  • Monthly Rewind ~ Since I love to tell you how the month was.
  • The Sunday Post ~ My favorite also, great way to catch up with friends.
  • Fun Facts ~ Have some more I want to share slump sort of killed this one

I had a few others but I am adding them to the NEW pile because honestly they need a redo
Here are just a few new posts I plan to do in the new year.

  • What I’m Binge Watching
