February Wrap Up

February 2021

I feel like February went by in a blur.  We had some frigid weather and a lot of snow that didn't seem like it would ever end, but it eventually did.  I ended up getting a couple of days off work due to the weather which helped me get a bit of extra reading in. 

We were able to have our shed installed this month and we are already enjoying the extra room we now have in our garage.  

I kept my 6-year-old niece and nephew (they're twins) for a sleepover one night during the month which was exhausting but fun.  

I really put a lot of effort into Instagram this month, really this whole year.  I am trying really hard to grow my audience on that platform and really enjoy the process of creating appealing photos (at least I hope that they are appealing).  I am entering March with 723 followers and can't wait to see where the month takes me.

I am linking this post to the Monthly Wrap-Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

How was your month? Do you have any reading or blogging goals for March?

  1. I admire your Instagram dedication. I don’t think I’ve opened that app in a month. I hope you have a great March!

  2. Congrats on all your Instagram followers. I've never been on Instagram, although I admire the features other bloggers show us.

    Enjoy that shed and your week of reading.

    I am curious about Melissa Foster, and have not yet read her. I haven't read Harlan Coben in ages!

    Have a great week.

  3. I wouldn't have time for things like Instagram. Just keeping up with the blog takes up enough time!

  4. My February was similar with all the severe weather, but March is starting mild for me. Glad you got a few snow days off, your new shed to create the space, and time with the twins. Look like you got a good stack of books read/listened to. Congrats on the Instagram followership. I'll have to make sure I'm following, too. I like instagram, but haven't gotten consistent yet.

  5. Ugh. I haven't done Instagram but I'm glad it's going well for you. You read some great books during February. You are doing well on your challenges too.

  6. I love browsing Bookstagram but I feel so uncreative when I consider taking my own book photos. I just stick with enjoying others on my feed. :) I'm so excited to read those Moo U spin-offs!

  7. Good luck with Instagram! I don't have the time or energy for it, but over 700 followers is pretty awesome.

  9. The sleepover sounds fun and exhausting! I've been loving your content on instagram. I just learned about presets and it's pretty fun!

  10. I agree that February sure flew by! Your pictures on Instagram are always so amazing to see. I'm a big fan of Coben, as well. Happy March and huge hugs, RO

  11. Good luck with your Instagram. I've been trying to grow mine steadily but surely too. I do have fun with the photos though, so it's enjoyable at least. That's the main thing, right? I don't have a ton of reading goals this month - read as many books that begin with E and F as I can for my Read the Alphabet challenge. OH! And I need to get an Agatha Christie book to read.
