Lucky me got sick earlier this week, meaning I got to spend more time at home and work on cross stitching. I haven’t forgotten about my cross stitch challenge (new post about that will come next week, promise!). But today I wanted to share some of my favourites of the week. Most of my recent blog posts have been about blogging so I thought, hey why not start a new series where I share some of the things I’m liking this week.
I can’t believe it’s already been a month since I started this blog. There was an abundance of learning curves and I quickly learned what to do and what not to do. Leading up to the rebrand, I did so much research on Pinterest and read so many blogs about doing this and that. However, nothing I read prepared me for actually using my blog and taking it seriously. I also had a big focus on social media. I wanted to grow my following as well as use it to promote my blog.
This week almost didn’t have a blog post. But here I am. Phew. Recently I’ve made a couple changes in my life and I’ve found myself more out of the house than the past couple of weeks (at least since I’ve started this blog). I joined a gym about two weeks ago. On top of the gym, work, cross stitching, and spending time with family, my blog has taken a bit of a backseat. However, like most people, I’m glued to my phone every other minute of the day. So of course I’ve grown a little collection of apps I like to use to keep up with posts, social media and promotion.

When I relaunched my blog, not only did I want to increase traffic but I also wanted to find ways that I could monetize my blog.
That’s when I discovered Michelle Schroeder-Gardner’s course Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d take a look back at one of my favourite TV shows – How I Met Your Mother. The show focuses on Ted Mosby who tells his son and daughter the story of how he met their mother. Ted recounts all the stories of his friends (Marshall, Lily, Robin and Barney) and past girlfriends. The show had everything in it – comedy, drama, and definitely romance.
In this post, I’ll share my top 5 favourite episodes, in no particular order. Picking from 9 seasons was no easy task. If you’ve never watched the show (or never finished the series, in which case what are you waiting for?!), this is your warning that this post contains spoilers.
